Our Trip To The Burton Antiques Fair

This past Saturday we went to the Burton Antique Fair at the Geauga County Fair Grounds.  We have never gone to this show before and thought we’d go see what it is all about.IMG_6555

There were lots of sellers with really nice antiques.  The only downfall to the day was the heat.  Around here we consider ourselves blessed when it gets hot but this was oppressive humid hot.  Other than that we had a really good time.  Dane wasn’t to keen on going but he even managed to have a good time.

When we arrived there was a band of Pirates singing and dancing…..IMG_6516What they have to do with the Antiques Fair, I don’t know?  But Dane found them quite amusing.

We made our way around the fair grounds and here are just a few of the things that caught our eye…

The Marx Sportster car really got a lot of attention when from people when we walked around.  A few people asked where we got it and how much we paid for it.  We don’t know too much about it , we just liked it.  The Little Kings sign just reminds us of younger years………And no.  We didn’t buy the Wienermobile.

Friday we had a beautifully warm sunny day to carve our pumpkins.  I cleaned out the pumpkins, I only bled a little :cry:   Dane, our son, carved 3 and Brandon and I both carved 2 each.  This year we just did old fashioned pumpkin carving instead of the elaborate patterns and it was much more enjoyable.   We grew our own pumpkins this year and what I learned from that is….next year we need to plant more!  We ended up with 9 pumpkins from three plants.  Next year we will be down to grapes, hops, maybe some berry plants and just a few tomato plants in the garden.  The field at the back of our property is going to be planted with lots of pumpkins!  I just love pumpkins!

Tonight is Trick-Or-Treating!  Maybe this year we will get a few kids!  Last year we didn’t even get one……Since we moved to the country it’s the only thing I miss.  We used to get hundreds now we are lucky if we get a couple….But we are ready for them if they come!  Dane is looking forward to going Trick-Or-Treating.  He is going to be a scary magician and he is going  Trick-or-Treating with his friend.  There is lots of candy to be had!
