    Where have been all your posts? I have missed you! I don’t need a ticket…I live in Nebraska…won’t be attending but I would like to hear what you have to say! Good luck. Keep me out of the raffle for tickets. Just commenting.

    OH! MY! My (beautiful) daughter and I will be attending the Fair….Cannot believe that YOU, curator of GFT’s will also be there…I often wax poetic about your blog, Girlie, and would like nothing better than for you two gals to meet….you see, SHE also likes GFT’s, (but they must be expensive, also) just to round things out. Anyway, we three MUST be kindred spirits, because we are so often on the same wavelength–I mean, who elso but YOU and I would think about turning a grand piano into a kitchen island??? (Well, er, actually, MY plan is to use a tree stump–a GF tree stump for my island base).

    So, Dearie, pick my name so we can meet!

    I came to see you in NH and I loved your presentation! (but you did not wear your towel outfit for us?) maybe I’ll make the drive if I can convince a friend. You improved my antiquing alot and I might benefit from a refresher.

    Ahhh – you’ll be at the Columbus Fair!? So will I! Well, I’ll just be shopping the nine million vendors and lurking about your stage because I’m not famous enough to be a presenter, but still — eeeekkk 😀

    I would love to meet you in New York..
    I love your giant fancy things but my home is not
    Big enough for most of them. I live vicariously
    Through your posts.

    Rhinebeck is pretty close to where I live. I would love to go and meet you. I adore antiques, home projects, road trips and your blog 🙂

      I’m sure you ladies are aware of the Round Top/Warrenton Antique Fair that is held twice a year between Austin and Houston – lasts almost three weeks and has wonderful GFTs and all the project pieces to fill your garages and barns for a lifetime. And Country Living has had its own tent at Marburger Farms with all kinds of freebies and wonderful guests. I hope they will bring our lovely Elizabeth to Texas for a show – can’t imagine anyone more entertaining. Next show is in September – check the Round Top Chamber of Commerce website for show information. Spotted in the crowds: Chip and Joanna Gaines, Martha Stewart, Nate Berkus, Magnolia Pearl, Rachel Ashwell (who has a B&B in the area/The Prairie), Matt McConnahaughy, Sandra Bullock, the Junk Gypsies and their “world headquarters,” Miranda Lambert. Anyway, it’s well worth the trip.

      Elizabeth, thanks for your wonderful blog. It isn’t often we can find a perfect woman to emulate!

    I’d love to attend the NY fair! I can make the relatively quick drive over from Boston. Yes please! I’d love to attend the fair (thanks for the head’s up about it in any event), and would love even more to see your presentation and GFTs!

    I would love to see you in Rhinebeck! I’m so happy that you’ll be appearing there and I’ve always wanted to attend the fair. Plus, I’m a fan of both jazz hands and GFTs.

    Exciting for you! Alas, I live in Missouri, no where near N.Y. This fair never comes to my area, or even nearby. BOO! 🙁
    Hoping to see many photos and a lengthy post upon your return.
    Good luck to all the locals!

    The country living fair in Rhinebeck is always fun. Especially when a town over is one of the best french restaurants I have ever been to in the US.

    And love your reference to little Edie. Actually my wife and I love all reference to grey gardens. To the point we bought a foreclosure in the poconos and when we found a raccoon running around INSIDE the house (and since we are two crazy broads) we had to name it Grey Gardens Lakeside. We even have a wooden boat named little Edie.

      What’s the name of the restaurant? I’d love to try it. My current favorite French restaurant in the US is Chez Nous in Lee, MA.

    A friend and I are SOOOO excited to be going to Rhinebeck! We are CLfair newbies. Love your blog and I am more than a little bit jealous of the treasures you find. I lived in Philadelphia and now South Jersey and never see treasures like yours. Can’t wait to see you in Rhinebeck!

    This sounds like such a fantastic event! Boogers that I can’t go since it’s a bit of a hike from North Carolina, but please take LOTS OF PICTURES and share about the fair in your hilarious blog posts so we can enjoy it all vicariously. I can’t wait to see what Giant Fancy Things follow you home from the fair…

    Rhinebeck, NY is almost exactly halfway between the adopted hometowns of my college roommate and me. Your post inspired we two collectors of GFT to meet in the middle. We’ll be there with scarves and vintage brooches on instead of bells. Ok, there may also be bells. Depends on the scarf.
