West Jefferson Old Time Antique Fair

Hey y'all! Hope your Friday is going well and you had a great week. We have been feeling chilly temps in the morning here in NC and I am so excited that fall is here. This is my favorite season and I can't wait for the beautiful colors to start showing on the leaves. I am loving all the fall decorating that is going on in blog are some talented ladies! Guess what, I have not put one fall thing out yet!! I know, I know shame on me but fear not (you were worried, i'm sure) this week I am getting all my stuff out and will post pictures..hopefully.

As Tara told you last week we took a trip up to West Jefferson, NC for the 1st annual Old Time Antique Fair. It was a beautiful day and we had such a good time. There were less than 50 vendors, so it was fairly small but we found  some nice stuff at great prices. We also went to two of our favorite antique malls while we were there. Here are some other random pictures from downtown West Jefferson.

After our antique hunting we were poor hungry so we went to Mount Jefferson for a picnic. The views from the top are stunning and on a clear day you can see for miles. If your ever in the area you need to go! I am so blessed to live in the NC mountains, words can't describe the beauty.

You could see all over

The next pictures are one (there are many) of the reasons why we love coming to West Jefferson. Driving through the country lets you see all the beautiful fields and barns. We are barn girls, just love them!! Also you can spot these quilt squares around but our favorite is on the barns. They are so cool and very pretty.


Now i'm sure you are wondering what finds we came home with.....

Mom got two quilts (one for $10!), a green handled strainer, vintage flower picture and a Bunnykins bowl. Tara got a quilt, Bobbsey Twins book, fabric stack boxes & Pyrex fridge dishes. I also found some pyrex, milk glass, vintage s&p shakers and a vinegar bottle. The tool box, wrench and Paden City Pottery plate were yard sale finds that Mr. Sweet Pea got the day before. 

I'm off to drag my fall boxes out of the closet ;) Have a great day!



  1. Well, ya'll sure did find some great pieces! I don't think I've ever been to West Jefferson. Is it close to Asheville? Your pictures are amazing! Love the one of the barn and the old truck! Enjoy your weekend! :)

  2. That looks like a fun trip. Love that red barn with the old truck in front of it.

  3. Beautiful barns and barn quilts! Sounds like a great day and some really nice "finds." Fall is a wonderful time of the year!

  4. A day out antiquing and thrifting is my idea of fun! Thanks you so much for your kind and encouraging comment on my post about the well project for Ghana.
