Notforgotten Farm Antiques and Folk Art show 2013

What a fun weekend! I'm so excited I was finally able to attend the Notforgotten Farm Antique & Folk Art show and meet Lori and Peter Brechlin!  They make you feel right at home!
Arriving at the show for set up around 6:30am Saturday, in the dark and misty morning, was a bit unnerving since my husband was my help for the weekend!  My sister Christa is usually with me but couldn't make this one so I had a new "trainee" which makes for a longer set up time plus I wasn't able to take along many of my props since we traveled in a smaller truck! So this also takes more time trying to figure out what to put where!  To my surprise we were ready to go by 9am when the gates were opened!  He did quite well!

Despite the dreary feel of the day it never rained hard or stormed so we were quite lucky! Spirits were high and it just felt more like Fall! It was nice to meet some new online friends and have the opportunity to chat with so many of the customers! It was nice to meet Cindy of Mountain Hollow sure to stop by her blog!

I'm going to start with pictures of Lori's shop!  Oh my gosh! Prim perfect!  I was only able to pop in for a short time because my husband wasn't comfortable taking care of customers.   I wanted to stop back and take some pictures of the inside after I asked permission but never had the chance to do it.  So, here are some pictures from the outside! So inviting!

 It was so nice of Lori to place me right beside Susan and Dorrie of Olde Threads on PHM .  They have been coming to the show for 5 years so were a big help to me! Here we are in Susan and Dorrie's booth with Lori Brechlin, peeking over Susan's shoulder beside Pinocchio, with Dorrie snuggling Pinocchio's head and I'm on the far left.
The donkey's visited us all day just 3 feet behind out tents! So cute!
I can't wait to go back!!!  If you ever want to take a trip to Virginia you may want to stop and check out the shop!  She is located at 3530 Tye River Road
Amherst, Virginia and be sure to stop by Lori's blog Gathering of Primitive Friends to see more pictures of the day!!! 


  1. Wow, what a great show and time, Love the donkey 's Blessings Francine.

  2. Your booth looked great and I am glad you made it to the show. Maybe next year I will be able to ride down with you, hint, hint. :)

  3. Hi Teresa,
    I enjoyed your post from Lori's show - your set up looks just wonderful with hubbies help - they do pull through for us don't they?
    Glad you gad a good time and that the weather basically turned out good.
    When we go to Asheville, NC to visit our friends we are going to make a point of going to Lori's.
