Since the Country Living Fairs are usually held in other states, this something I would definitely like to try.  There are a lot of fairs, craft shows, bazaars and festivals in this part of the country.  I just visited the big antiques show in Warrenton a few weekends ago and didn’t blog about it, but now I am,  because all I saw was this sign (see below) and all I bought was a four dollar soap dish.  It was probably because I went on Saturday and most vendors were packing up or gone home for Easter Sunday.

Here’s the sign…wasn’t sure how I felt about it…I felt queasy; I laughed; I passed it by;  I backed up; I shook my head;  then I took a picture.   I will leave this post at that and let you decide for yourself whether you shall laugh, pass it by, back up, etc…
