Well, we have returned from a glorious fall From the Farmhouse show of country antiques & primitives hosted by Cecilia Taylor of Henhouse Primitives in Elkton, MD! We left Massachusetts in a balmy state at 4:00 a.m. and arrived to a windy, cold Elkton just after 10:00 a.m. to set up for the show. The show was held at the Cecil County/Fair Hill fairgrounds on Telegraph Road, which was a fantastic place to hold an event. Loading and unloading was a breeze for vendors and there is plenty of parking for all who attended.
Over 30 vendors were set up around the grounds and inside the building and was truly a site to behold! We ran into our old friends: Rick Fuller (Richard Fuller Antiques of South Royalton, VT); Christina Hummel (Primitive America, Pennsdale, PA); Connie Gleed (Hands of Time Antiques, Palmyra, PA); Dirk Dishop (The Early Homestead Woodshop, Napoleon, OH); Chastity & Mark Stephenson (Magpie Primitives, Canaan, NY); and of course our host, Cecilia Taylor (Henhouse Primitives, Oxford, PA)! We also met some of our wonderful Facebook and website fans as well!
After setting up on Friday, Celia provided a wonderful dinner for the vendors and invited us all back to her house for snacks and mingling. We dragged Connie Gleed and her friend Judy another half hour away to our new friend, Diane Windle’s home for the experience of a lifetime! Windle’s Log Cabin Antiques is a must-do, if you are in the area, filled with primitive antiques and other treasures! I think our eyes popped out of our heads when we saw how beautiful Diane’s home/shop is.
Sooooooo, it is our recommendation that you put aside the date of Saturday, April 30, 2011 for Cecilia Taylor’s next From the Farmhouse antique show! You will not be disappointed.
