Thelma and Louise hit the road again… Part 2 – Maryland

The next step in our journey began at Cecilia Taylor’s home and shop, Henhouse Primitives in Lewisville, Pennsylvania which led up to a fabulous show of primitives and antiques at Cecilia’s show, From the Farmhouse in Elkton, Maryland (just down the road)!

The Cecil County Fairgrounds is an awesome place for a show… the grounds are amazing!  I don’t know how Cecilia does it, but she managed to have a half-dozen houseguests, run a show AND have an open house back at her shop… AND she fed ALL of us!  A wonderful hostess, her attention to detail and caring nature shines in everything she does.

(Here, I have to note, regretfully… we utterly failed with photos of Cecilia’s shop!  Believe it or not, we felt so at home, we forgot about taking any pictures… NEXT TIME!  Or, go to her picturetrail for more information.)

Absolutely LOVE this church… on the road from Cecilia’s to the fairgrounds… so sweet!

Friday dawned clear and cool, an easy day for set-up with no sign of what was to come!

Here is our booth at From the Farmhouse show… we seem to be getting a reputation for first to set up and last to take down!

Last but not least, the back corner!

From the Farmhouse is always a great show and we weren’t disappointed!  Great merchandise, wonderful customers who were brave enough to go out in miserable weather… rain, which turned to snow… we only ended up with an inch in this section of Pennsylvania and Maryland, BUT the folks back home weren’t so lucky!  Our husbands were faced with power outages, heavy snow and broken trees… guess we chose the right time to go on a road trip!

AND, there’s more to come!

To be continued…

    Love the picture of the Deerfield Garlic! I’d love to share it with a community of growers, I know they’d love to learn about Walker Homestead.
