I'll be perusing unique antiques at Goat Hill Fair this Saturday

Guess where I'll be perusing my favorite kind of wares in just 7 days? At Goat Hill Fair a juried, vintage, antique, and artisan fair being held at the Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds in Watsonville, CA. It features not just local vendors but vendors from all along the west coast.

I love vintage, antique, and second hand goods. It's like you're giving them a second chance at life when you find a treasure, take it home, and put it to good use.

While I don't usually pre-promote events, opting instead to share a from-my-point-of-view recap after attending, I'm making an exception this time because I have a feeling some of my readers will want to attend as well. The creator of this showcase is Cyndi Garafolo, a merchant I used to know from her shop "Garafolo's Interiors" formerly located in Downtown Campbell, CA. When she closed her retail storefront I was told they would be reinventing themselves. I had no idea it would be in such a fun and unique way.

Sadly, I've missed out on previous Goat Hill Fair events. Not this time! With advance warning and an invitation to attend as media I'll be there with bells on. Or a bell. A goat bell. You know, the kind on a leather collar that looks like a miniature cow bell. LOL

ETA a correction was made to the following presentation information:

Blogger and crafter extraordinaire Cathe Holden, contributor to Country Living Magazine, will be there Saturday at 11:00 AM. Her demo will be: DIY Vintage-Style Bottle Brush Christmas Trees"

And on Saturday at 1:00 PM Vicki Petulla of The Creeping Fig will give a demo featuring Succulent Centerpieces.
