Or at least that I’ve ever been to!
Two weekends ago, I had the extreme pleasure of going to the Old Glory Antique Fair. I visited the store of the same name earlier in the year and fell. in. love. But unfortunately my wallet couldn’t handle anything in there. But still, I was head over heels.
I had often heard of that place and then later, I started seeing ads for their annual fair in all the magazines I was reading, design blogs I came across…it was seemingly everywhere I looked. When I saw that the editors of two of my favorite publications (Flea Market Style and Where Women Create) were going to be at the event, I knew it was big and I wasn’t going to miss out if it was only an hour away.
It just so happened to be David’s birthday as well so we made a really fun day out of it and the fair did not disappoint. It was a pretty big event, sprawled over Clement Park which borders Columbine High School and vendors were parked under big, mature trees which helped a bit for the hot day.
I was out of my mind with all the goodies.
I had to budget myself to $100 and it was really hard to stick to that but I still scooped up a bunch of goodies including chippy wood pieces, rusty hardward, an old clock among other things.
One great thing is that I saw a lot of other “Barnies” there or vendors that sell at The Barn, including my friend Amy’s gorgeous booth…
They are a great resource to talk to about potentially vending at this event next year (they only require that 80% of your booth be antiques or handmade – yay!).
Best antique event I’ve been to yet..can’t wait until next years! If your curious about this fair, click here. Do you have any great fairs by you? Do share!
