Here are a few pics from the 20th Annual Antiques Market at Bishop Hill last weekend. Next year I'll try to take more of the action outside during the show but I didn't have a chance to sneak out and take photos this time -- WAY too busy inside! Here's our booth at the back wall of the Colony School - a cool old building.
Here's the Colony Bakery and its gardens -- where all of that AMAZING pie comes from!
The commeraderie among the dealers is pretty special at Bishop Hill-- including having a lovely picnic dinner together after a busy day of setup in the beautiful gardens of our hosts Jim & Cheri Campbell.
Even if you didn't make it to the show, Bishop Hill is always a great destination and Sweet Annie Primitives, in the lower level of the Campbell's home, is not to be missed.
Also, check out the the lastest issue of Country Sampler -- September 2010, don't know if it's on the newsstand yet, but I mine came in the mail already -- for a wonderful article about Jim & Cheri's historic home. I've seen it in person and it is absolutely stunning! She has impeccable taste, as you will see.
If you're still hoping for more views of the show than I managed to provide here, stay tuned. A fellow dealer took TONS of pics and is putting together sort of a photo-essay about the show. I'll find our her webite address and include it in a future post.
Tomorrow...the promised "sneak peeks" for next week's Summer Open House & Sale!! Check back -- or check your email if you're on our email list. (Want to be on the list but aren't yet? Just drop me a note -- firstname.lastname@example.org -- or click on "contact us" on the website.)
