The Country Living Fair will be in Columbus, Ohio September 16,17,18th. You can order tickets online.
A one day pass is $13 ($16 at the gate plus you might have a line)
A 3 day pass is only $15. There is a $2 service fee. Parking is $5 They also have deals that you get a CL subscription for $8. Have known people to sign up and not get the subscription for some reason.
I just wanted to know if any Buckye Bloggers will be going. What days and what times? We can "try" to meet. With cell phones and some of us knowing each other....we might actually find each other. Looking for newbies as well. We are not an exclusive group, just a bunch of crazy fun loving junky, vintage picker ladies.
So just send me an email and maybe I can arrange something .
THE FRENCH HEN BARN SALE is October 7 and 8 (my bd). This is another fun sale. So much goodness under one roof. A beautiful barn with chandys hanging everywhere. Another good place for us bloggers to meet up. This sale is in Marysville.

ANOTHER UPCOMING EVENT is the Ohio Rural Society Antiques and Garden Show on October 14 and 15. This is located in the farmlands of Mt. Vernon Ohio. It is on a beautiful farm.....lots of great much fun. This would be a great place for us all to meet up. It isn't as big as the CL Fair.....easier to find each other and just a fun place to spend some time. Motley Junk and Flippery will be there as vendors. (aka Polly, Keely and Pam). I really hope we can get a bunch to go there. So also let me know about this so we can plan ahead. Also, less walking, should be cooler, no admission or parking fees.

UPDATES: I have a job.....actually a couple. I will fill you in later. My MIL is out of ICU. She isn't doing well and so grumpy.

Okay, ladies think about the dates and let's get something started.

I work in a hospital...and the grumpiest people are the best ones to recover (seriously). For some strange reason they put ornery to its best advantage!

Glad you have a job and will look forward to hearing about it! xo Diana

Hi Debby,

Hope your MIL has a speedy recovery. Congrats on the new job(s)? :)
The Country Living Fair is so much fun. I went a few years ago and loved it. Not sure if I am going this year yet...

Pam @ Frippery said...

I will be there with hubs and a friend from Pittsburgh who I met at Silver Bella. I think we are going to CL Friday and then Springfield Saturday. (Sandy hasn't been to either) Hope to meet up with everyone!

Jo said...

Debby, I wish I were there! My daughter spent 5 weeks in Columbus this summer dancing with balletmet and when I visited, we had a GREAT time in Columbus! living fair...I wish!

Jen Kershner said...

I'm so jealous! Now I'm wishing I was a state over! We even have relatives in the Columbus area so I really need to make it some time. I hope you have a wonderful time.

Sue said...

Debby, I'm still thinking I will do Springfield on Friday and CL on Sat. Murph is off on Fridays, so we will do French Hen on the 7th. So you'll have to let me know about your new job(s) and your hours. There is a great sale near New Paris- she is a fav of mine from some other sales. This is at her home. I found some good things last year! Call me. :-) Sue

they are coming to GA again too!!

praying your mil has a speedy recovery



I happened upon your blog and see you live in Granville! I haven't been there in a long time, but it is so lovely and would love to go back to visit one day when I have the time. I use to know someone that worked at Dennison University, but the name escapes me now.

I live in the Hocking Hills near Logan. It would be fun to meet up, but maybe another time as we shall be leaving to go to Las Vegas during that time frame.

Lucky you to have so many lovely grandchildren!

Susie Q said...

I so want to do the French Barn sale and the Rural Antique long as some of the Ohio Blogger gang is apart of it! : )
Went to CL last year and enjoyed it but can't make it this year! Hope you can go and get loads of goodies!

Hi Debby!

I am definitely going to the French Hen Farm in a couple weeks. I'd also like to go to the show in Mt. Vernon if all works out.

I'm not sure why your email bounced back. My address is amusingpotpourri(AT)gmail(DOT)com
