ROAD TRIP!!

Posted by on Sep 26, 2012 | 4 comments

This weekend we took a whirlwind tour down to Southern Ontario to check out the bi-annual antique show at Aberfoyle Market.  We have become experts at maximizing the interior capacity of a vw golf and a mazda protege but this time, we managed to procure ourselves an actual trailer! …so despite the poor weather forecast we armed ourselves with raincoats, rubber boots, tie downs and tarps and we crossed our fingers for a good haul!

en route…preparing for a soggy weekend.

.

Look at us – parking with the big leaguers!  (yup, that’s us on the left ; )

.

The market was packed with vendors selling all kinds of things, and even though the clouds loomed overhead – the day was rain free and we had a blast checking everything out.

our current favourite colour

.

love!

.

.

honk honk!  I NEED this.

.

Just for the record, our intention was to pick up lots of small things, but Vicki just couldn’t resist bringing home some really great big pieces!  Check out some of our haul!  The best part – when you bought something these nice men on 4 wheelers & trailers would pick it and bring it to the loading area for you.  – then load it into your trailer!!  This pile was waiting for us when we headed back.

Errin: ” I just want to remind you, you said SMALLS.”

Vicki: “…um.”

.

We always get a kick out of some of the “odder” collections too.  Sorry, none of these treasures made it home with us.  So if you had your heart set on the big eyed kitty – forget about it!

.

meoow…..  ROOOWR!

.

.

Are they cats or are they just dressed up as cats??

.

.

This little beauty was selected for a special auction!

.

Feeling a definite cat theme. ….hmmm, are we missing something?

.

As a sign to mark the end of a great trip, does it get any better than a lucky double rainbow on the drive home?

So vivid!

.

ALL THE WAY!!  (seriously)

.

Stop in for a visit over the next few weeks as we work all the new stuff into the mix.  Also, a big thanks to Sarah & Marta who manned the shop while we were away this weekend!  Mwah!

See y’all soon!

Errin & Vicki

  1. Oh drool!!! LOVE the teal “mail sorter”! That’s what I’m guessing it is. A stop into your fabulous shop is a must as a belated b’day present to myself. Glad you had a good time!

  2. Any chance the blue wagon from the first shot made it’s way home with you ladies?

  3. Hey Lisa! Cute, but no. Sorry no wagons this time.

  4. Hi there, just taking a peek at your blog for the first time. I notice the green glass terrarium in your “take-home” pile. Do you still have this and if so, what is the price? I’m attempting to replace one of my husband’s that was broken in our last move. It was VERY similar to that one I believe! Keeping my fingers crossed…
