BE SURE TO CHECK OUT THE DETAILS FOR ALL THREE NEW LINKY PARTIES HERE AT THE COTTAGE!
Back in the spring, the Yankee and I did an antique show in Cameron, NC.
I got so busy preparing for other shows–scheduled back-to-back–I failed to post about this one.
But this town is so unbelievably quaint, I just couldn't pass up the opportunity to share it with you.
I didn't have time to browse this adorable little shop when I was there, but the peek inside makes me want to go back as soon as I get the chance.
As I walked the main street to take pictures to share with you, I was sooo tempted to stop in each and every antique store along the way.
But there were just too many–in addition to the street vendors–to even consider it.
It amazed me that there was so many terrific shops in such a small town, considering the population of Cameron is under 200.
Maybe they're all shop owners! ; )
As if all the antiques and collecibles weren't eye candy enough, the houses that line this main street made me wish they also offered a historic homes tour.
And I actually got to meet a fellower NC blogger at this show.
Tammy @ Tattered and Timeless had some of the sweetest offerings in her booth.
Be sure to stop by and tell her Liz @ the Brambleberry Cottage said hi.
Believe me; there were sooo many wonderful things to look at, I couldn't take it all in in the brief time I had to snap these few photos.
Let me show you where the Yankee and I were set up.
We were in the backyard of an old tea room that is no longer in business.
The owners's daughter tried to convince us to buy the place and restore it to its former glory.
Oh, how I wish that were possible! It's my dream to own a tea room and fill it with creations from the Brambleberry Cottage.
Maybe some day!
It was truly one of the most delightful places to be a vendor.
Tucked among the tall trees and set up next to an old barn, it was almost like being back home on our farm.
Even the old pecan grove where we slept–the night before the show–was serenely beautiful.
We will definitely visit Cameron again.
Next time, I want to go a few days early, so I can visit each one of those shops. Want to come along?
If you look closely, there are splashes of pink in these pics, so I'm sharing at Beverly's Pink Saturday.
