Mix in a day of sunshine, antiques, collectibles and grilled onions with hot links and you have a better than fair day for a peddler’s faire. My husband and I – with doggies, too – strolled amongst all of the wonderful booths filled with antiques and vintage collectibles. No, we didn’t take home the scottie things here, but Miss Jean did score a wonderful scottie painting and I found an old dog print, a vintage tablecloth, an old crock, a scottie towel and a fabulous green chippy paint cabinet.
It was a fun morning and we ran into a lot of friends whilst there. The faire was held in a historic town in the foothills of California. My husband, with camera in hand, took all of the pictures. I had to be “hands free” to shop, dontchaknow! Well, at least one hand free as Miss Fiona hung out with us girls.
The posse patrol…. they did a good job and maintained a "high profile" amongst the crowd. Everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves and hopefully there weren’t any problems.
The setting for the faire was just lovely. The adjacent river was flowing nice and strong from all of the snow melting in the Sierra Nevada mountains. Green hills, oak trees and a blue sky made for a perfect backdrop for a delightful day.
There is a wonderful covered bridge in the town and you can read more about it HERE. It just so happens to be California’s longest covered bridge.
These buildings are the remains of the old Grist Mill and date back to the mid 1800’s.
