Hotter Than Blazes...

is the only way to describe our afternoon at the Madison-Bouckville Antique Show.

This place is just a hop, skip and a jump from us so we decided to mosey on over and check it out.

But the heat and humidity made it unbearable!
I brought my camera and was able to muster up enough energy to snap a few photos.

Now waaaay back (see the white tents) is where all the real good stuff was. You had to pay to get in there.

We decided to cruise up and down antique alley where vendors were set up all along the state route.

Ooooh, I loved this old civil war trunk!

Just beautiful!

Here's a dapper furry feller.

What the?? I couldn't help but giggle when I saw these.

Can ya tell I love old carriages?

Not too many folks were buyin', myself included. Prices were outrageous and I didn't dig deep enough in our couch cushions for spare change.
So we came home with only sunburns and some homemade fudge.

But the best part of the day for me was this...

Fried dough!!
(Yep, and I ate it all too.)
:> )

Hey Peanut!
You mean you went to the show without me?!

Boy, would I love to have one of those carriages sitting out in front of the carriage house.

It was sweltering here too, but a piece of that fried dough could have easily made up for it!

Ah, fried elephant ear !.. and ya didn't save me any ! Now I am hungry for one of those or a funnel cake..

The carriages and the civil war box are wonderful !

It was a tad warm here, but I am not complaining after all that cold and rain we have had .. here in PA.
