stay overnight at the Ant Street Inn and have 2 days to see as much as we can. Last season I got
heat stoke so that slowed us some.
This year we could not be away overnight due to responsibilities in helping take care of my son
who had a botched surgery 6 months ago and is still healing.
We left early and did not tell anyone until we were far enough away to say we are out of town.
Ha Ha, really.
We stopped first of all at La Bahia which has always been one of my favorite shows. It is in an
old German Dance Hall under some old Oak Trees and across from an old farm with two
dovecotes which are like what I would like to have to give my doves a REAL home. These are
for many dove couples. Here it is but only one dovecote shows in this picture. The other has
fallen to the ground but it is still there.
After La Bahia we went on to Roundtop and then Warrenton. I must say I enjoy
Warrenton more than any. There is so much variety there and less imported stuff
than you find in many shows.
This year we branched out some and went across the street from Zapp Hall and met
some nice dealers there.
I saw everything from Jumeau dolls to one booth called
the Wild March Hares.
This is what I enjoy, moving from booth to booth as well as from
era to era and old to older.
I am sorry I cannot tell you who some of these lovely booths belonged to. In some there
year we have missed her blog party but we were going back home soon.
The booth below is one of the most unusual I saw this year. It was across from the Zapp Hall shows and was all books. I took several of this booth, probably because I love books. These books seemed to be flying through the air.
