Crabapple Festival


Before coming home from Georgia yesterday, we had a big day out on Saturday...we attended the Crabapple Festival in Alpharetta. This is a good old fashioned festival, held annually, complete with lots of crafts and antique dealers...and it all takes place at  Millie Huckabay's American Country. 


That's Millie sitting on the porch of her shop...on the left, in the background. 

Millie's shop is wonderful...one of those places that when you walk in...your heart beats a little faster!

Millie kindly gave me permission to take photos...so here are a few for you to enjoy.











So much to see...a wonderful mix of antiques and prim goods and folk art!


Here are the goodies that came home with me...an early book, a yummy Fall mix that smells divine,
a very early pewter measure....



...and a lovely pair of Jacquelyn Trone watercolors.

Hope you enjoyed visiting the Crabapple Festival...we sure did!

Mr. M. and Annie each got to pick something fun to do while in Atlanta, and I'll be back to share their picks later in the week.

As always, thank you for coming by and saying hello...I'm behind in my visiting, but I'll be trying to catch up this week. 

Have a great week!

Enjoy the day,
Robyn

  10. Robyn ~
    What a great shop! A new shop opened last weekend in a neighboring town and I was excited to drop in. What a disappointment. Mostly Chinese imports and nothing unique or antique. It's in a high rent district (at least for our area) and sadly, I don't think it will be around long!
    Wonderful pic of you and sweet Annie!
    Hugs :)

  11. Oh my heck!! What an amazing shop! I wasn't seeing too much that I wouldn't have wanted to bring home with me....but you chose so wisely...old book, old pewter - and what glorious watercolors!!! Now THOSE are on my "green with envy" list for sure.... Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin (PS - That has to be one of the most beautiful photos of you I've seen yet....I know you are beautiful - but, somehow, in this one you look positively ethereal....)
