Country Living Fair – New York – Re-Cap

COUNTRY LIVING FAIR - NY 2013 11I’m back from the Fair and wanted to give you all a look at what fun it was!  We had a terrific show, despite a monsoon – really! – on the first day and another monsoon on the drive home to Richmond (a not fun 9 hours in a rental van).  I would go back in a New York minute.  Our only regret was that we did not have time to visit any of the beautiful sights in the Hudson River Valley that we drove by every day as we commuted from Fishkill, NY up Route 9 to Rhinebeck,

And by “we” I mean me and my old friend Phylliss who came out of her well-earned retirement from nursing to ride along and be my helpmeet for a grueling 6 days.  I am pleased to report that she still considers me a friend after I worked her to death.

I took the picture above early on Sunday morning when I finally got the chance to get out of the booth and go nose around.  It doesn’t look too crowded here but, trust me, the crowds were soon to come.

First I want to show you a little slide show of how the GLITTERMOON booth turned out.  We worked all day Thursday and into the evening getting it set up.  If I do say so myself, it looked fantastic.

And now, without further ado, here are some pictures of the Fair itself!  Please click on the images in the gallery to enlarge them and see the captions.

If you did not make it to Rhinebeck this year, don’t worry.  It was such a success that they have already decided to do it again next year.  I’ll be back!
