Primitive Awesomeness

H.J. Hall
Leslie and I hit the road before dawn yesterday to trek to Illinois and shop up a storm at the four wonderful antique shows held twice a year in Amish country. 

Our first stop was Homesteaders on the Prairie in Arthur.
Buggy Seat Antiques
Barb Goedeke
  Then it was on to Arcola and the Country Spirit Antique show.

Primitive Pursuits
 

After a great dinner at Don Sol Mexican grill in Mattoon and a good night's sleep, we headed back to Arthur for A Gathering on the Prairie.
Lisha Holt, Sharon Clymer, Shirley Wagner
Diane Gish
Then on to Tuscola to visit the expanded Rural Life show and the charming Winterberry store.

What a fun weekend! More photos to follow, but wanted to give you a peek at the fabulous vendors who make the long trip so worthwhile!

I see so many wonderful things! I've heard of this show, however, never been. Maybe I should make the drive down there next year. Blessings from Wisconsin.
