The following are a few pictures of the journey from Indianapolis to northern Indiana before heading to Springfield, Ohio where the antique show was held.
Founder, owner and shopkeeper Sara was so very creative, not only with her wonderful displays, but also with the decor of the shop. She had handpainted large murals on her painted floors. The entire shop was a study of her artistic skills. We were so glad we stopped. I wished I had brought my camera in because my Blackberry camera is not taking good pictures.
Then on to the auction house at Napanee which is a smaller auction than the Shipshewana auction, but often has a good find or two.
After all the travel, we finally made it to Springfield, Ohio, where we set up our wears. Next to us was this lovely young couple and their daughter. They raised home-grown pumpkins of every shape and color as well as flowers and herbs which they brought to sell.
I didn't get to do much walking around because we were busy at our own booth, but I did manage to take a few cell phone pix of other booths.
My blue swirl graniteware looked great in this old white cabinet. Most of the graniteware came home with us but the cabinet did not. Although not a good picture, the pale blue "post" leaning against the cabinet is actually an 1800's water pump with old blue milk paint and pinstrip Pennsylvania Dutch style red and yellow detailing on the sides. It is a find from a TN auction, not far from our home. The pump even has additional sections of octaginal wood pipe that fit into the well.
We bought this antique jelly cupboard in Indiana. I loved the style with the cut bottom. It sold and I almost didn't want to see it go!
