Hey there friends! It’s October again and you know what that means if you live in Atlanta, right? It’s Country Living fair month! I’m going this year for sure on Friday. Last year it rained, more like monsooned the day I was going so we decided to forego schlepping through the mud, but this year, I’m hoping for good weather. A coolish sunny day would be perfect. I’ve shared the Country Living fair pics with you before and may share after the fair this year, but it’s always a fun shopping event. This year Ben and Erin from Home Town on HGTV will be there on Saturday, but I’ll miss them at the fair. i will however get to meet them the following weekend in Austin, TX, since they will be the keynote speakers at the AdThrive conference I’m going to next week.
My friend, Liz Marie will be at the Country Living fair on Friday on the main stage, so I hope I get to hug her neck. We’ve been friends for many years and I’m so happy for her success.
One more thing I didn’t tell you all. I mentioned this on Instagram, but if you’re not on there you didn’t see this. I’m hosting a thrifting day Saturday, October 26th. If you’re going to the fair that day, you won’t be able to make it, but I’ve also asked another thrifter friend here in Atlanta (Made by Mollie’s Mom) on Instagram, Marcie is joining us too. She’s a big thrifiter and finds a lot of good things. We are going to meet up in Marietta on Canton Hwy. around 9 a.m. on Saturday, October 26th, so let me know if you’re interested in joining us. I have no idea right now how many will be there, but here’s your official invitation. We will hit a thriftstore and some antiques stores in the area, grab lunch, and probably go to another antiques store before we end by around 4 pm. You can join us for part or all of the day, it’s up to you!
There are a lot of good vendors with so much vintage goodies, so if you enjoy shopping vintage you’ll love it.
The epic pile of pumpkins is enough to make anyone get in the Fall spirit.
It’s a great girl’s day out and I’m going with my friend, Jill. Can’t wait!
All that talk about the Country Living fair reminds me of 5 years ago in 2014, when I was invited to speak on the main stage. Talk about pressure! It was very fun and I enjoyed meeting several of my blog readers. I talked about decorating and how I use vintage things in my home.
