A Good Old Fashioned Antique Fair

Hello Friends!


I recently had the opportunity to head out to a wonderful antique show in a little town named


Cameron here in North Carolina.


Since moving here 6 years ago I had always heard about it but never had the chance to get there until now.As soon as I rolled into the town I got that nostalgic feeling.


Actually I got extremely home sick.


It felt like the antique shows that I was used to back home.


I couldn't wait to get out of the truck.


There was stuff as far as the eye could see!
I thought this little sign was adorable!


I felt like the girl in the drawing!



The crowds were plentiful......



The junk was superb......
(should have bought this cabinet base)



piles of it everywhere.....

























there were old street signs....


(these were still in use...not for sale)





adorable old homes lined both sides of the street.....





old buildings sprinkled about....







I loved the doors on this one...











not to mention all the chippy old paint!!!














And the food! You KNOW the food was FABULOUS! Look....a whole turkey drumstick for only 6 bucks!




It was a beautiful day with lots of sunshine!


I'm so glad I finally made it there.


I did find a few treasures and would have bought ALOT more if I wasn't by myself.


You can be sure that Mr.OTM is going to be tagging along next time.


He just doesn't know it yet.

I used to shop the Cameron sale when I lived in Raleigh--such a great fair! I'm coming through your way Sunday en route to my writer's retreat. Any chance you could meet me at the depot???

What fun! I could just kick myself for not going to Cameron when I had the chance. Now that I'm in Idaho, guess that won't be happening anytime soon. The junkin' out here is a lot further and far between...

Beth- how cool. You put my sisters house in your post. WE were set up in the front yard..Tattered & Timeless. I wonder if you stopped by. Maybe we can meet next time you come through Cameron.
