Country Living Fair 2015 - Rhinebeck, NY {A Milk Glass Tale}

A couple weekends ago I had the opportunity to go to the Country Living Fair in Rhinebeck, NY with my friend, Carol.

What a glorious day it was! 

The whole drive down, I knew just what I wanted....milk glass. I was bound and determined to hunt it down.

And wouldn't you know it after about the first tent of vendors I stumbled upon the most perfect nubby milk glass lamp! And it was only $15. And the owner of the shop was a doll.

But I couldn't buy the first thing I found.

So I said, "If it's here when I come back, it's meant to be." And I walked away.

Two more times throughout our day I found beautiful pieces of milk glass {a candy dish with lid for a mere $8 and a bowl with a soy candle inside}. Both times I walked away.

Then I stopped at a booth full of fun handmade jewelry by Metal Monk. These girls had spunk and infectious smiles and I instantly fell in love with some bracelets that had affirmations on them.

I didn't even hesitate to buy them. I think I have even worn these bracelets everyday since I got them!

As for the milk glass, toward the end of the day we went back around to each booth that I walked away from and wouldn't you know it....

it wasn't meant to be.

All of the pieces were sold. I even missed the milk glass lamp by about 30 seconds. It still haunts me.

I learned a valuable lesson too....sometimes even if it is the first item you see, if you love it....get it now! You won't regret it!

P.S. I even got to meet Cari Cucksey from HGTVs Cash and Cari.  She was sweet and down to earth. It truly was a lovely day! Maybe next year, I'll wear a little makeup though!
