Country Living Fair Heaven!

Saturday, June 4, 2016

The Country Living Fair is AMAZING!  It is heaven-on-earth and we find it quite difficult to describe just how truly amazing it really is.  Country Living Magazine hosts this event in several locales each year and we decided to hit up Rhinebeck, NY this weekend.  We would say it's like taking all of your favorite individuals from etsy and Instagram and having them selling their wares in one organized space.  The booths are filled with all things antique, vintage, homemade, crafted, or simply cool. From a home decor standpoint, your imagination runs wild with ideas from all of the inspiration of the geniously-styled booths.  These sellers are so talented!  There are also speakers, including celebrities from television, magazines, and other social media outlets.  And don't forget to hit up one of the many food trucks for lunch!  Click [HERE] to learn more about the Country Living Fair and see below to read all about our favorite booths and fun new treasures that we scored!

Bringing a wagon was a smart move!  So many people stopped us asking where they could get one.  Our reply, "Costco."

When we first arrived, two large topiaries caught our eye and we immediately bee-lined to Bella Vintage Home!  This booth was designed to perfection and sold sculpted topiaries made of Rosemary, Lavender and other species.  They filled the air with the most beautiful smells and we quickly chose our trees and enjoyed browsing the many other pieces of furniture and architectural pieces.  For the rest of the day, people were stopping us to inquire about our beautiful looking and smelling trees.

Erica purchased a lavender topiary tree from Bella Vintage Home.

JBS Mercantile was another of our favorites!  This booth was buzzing as shoppers were buying up all sorts of floral decor, architectural pieces and other antique and vintage finds. 


Erica got right to planting her succulents in this cement planter from JBS Mercantile.

Shannon faux lamb ears from JBS Mercantile which is a type of leafy stem used for decorating.

These vintage style frames from Fleurish will soon be hanging in Erica's dining room.

Also from Fleurish, this dried lavender is perfect for the bedroom.  It helps to promote sleep.

The white wooden trough is from Earth Angels Studios.  The small grain sack style pillow was also purchased at the fair.  The kitten is Erica's foster kitten for North Fork Country Kids Rescue.

Erica's cat Greta got a cute doughnut toy from Dharma Dog Karma Cat.

This rabbit from Lisa Bates Design was originally used for target practice.  Poor rabbit!

We both bought one of these garden signs from Homestead Collection

Both of us also came home with dough bowls!

We are already planning our next trip to Rhinebeck, NY next spring and can't wait to experience the Country Living Fair once again!
