The Liberty Antiques Festival is a show I rarely ever miss. Even though it’s a bit of a long drive for me, the results are usually worth the time and effort and gasoline money it takes to get there.
The event is held outside on a flat field. If we are lucky, the sun shines and the temperatures are in the 70s. I’ve been to this market over a dozen times and the weather has been lucky exactly twice. Last fall a persistent rain storm turned the field into a mud pit, but at least it was cool. This spring the sun shone brightly, but the temperatures sped into the 80s.
But no matter. It is still the best day to be had for antique and vintage lovers in this part of the country. The goods are (mostly) high in quality, and many are fresh to the market. This time I spent less than ever before, mainly because I’ve forced myself to be so much pickier. And truth be told, I get just as much pleasure out of seeing and learning as I do out of buying.
(Do you believe that? I didn’t think so.)
I am *so* tempted to just break down and start a collection of pennants. Or maybe not a full collection, just a few. I left these for some Jersey Girl who would appreciate them more than me, but they are peachy, aren’t they?
I fell in love with this team photo. It’s one of the earliest basketball teams I’ve seen, though it wasn’t dated. The logo on their middies is CR, I think. Any ideas of what the school or organization is?
Can you tell that this is a book? A coloring book, to be exact.
This suit is lovely, but I have a similar one in blue, and the condition on this one is not as good as my photos make it appear. It does have a great label, though!
And how about this great old stadium (?) seat? I really, really liked it.
