Harvest at the Mill Show

A huge thank you to Dick and Dawn Rossell of Holly Hills Primitives for inviting us to be a part of their first show! They did an amazing job organizing, advertising, hosting, you name it, they did it! The show was a huge success even though it rained a bit in the afternoon. To learn more and see the vendor list, go here.

This photo was taken during set up on Friday afternoon. Love all the old shutters and antiques in this shot.
Across from our booth was our dear friends, Bob and Peggy from The Wren in the Willow. Here you can see Bob is busy setting up their three booths! What a huge job. (one is enough for me :)

One of my favorite vendors...Lynn Capizzo from Lyndale Primitive Antiques. She offers antique toys, teddy bears, and other needfuls. Really unique items!

Here is a shot of our booth (thank you to hubby for helping set up and tear's definitely a two person job). Halloween originals amongst other originals, prints on wood, punchneedle patterns, primitive watercolor originals and other handmades.

Friday after setting up our booth, I stayed up until 11:30 making these cute jack-o-lanterns out of oranges. They really turned out cool. Each one has a different expression.

This was taken from Wren in the Willow's booth. I went to visit them during the rain.

Love this sign for the shop! Dawn has a great eye for creating primitive vignettes!

This was taken during set up as well. Gloria's booth, the neighbor across from us :)

 This was another amazing booth! My friend, Linda, bought the coolest antique tin here. It was a marshmallow tin in Halloween colors.

Loved meeting these gals, Kerry McCann and Marie Faren. They had some great primitives and antiques. Talking with Marie, we found common ground...Seville Antiques in Seville Ohio! Jann, Linda, Debbie and I have been there many times during our annual "shop across America" trip. (which only includes Ohio, lol!) Marie has a booth at Seville Antiques....what a small world.

Also, Kerry hosts an amazing show at her farm the third weekend of June and third weekend of October. She brought a photo book from her past looks AMAZING! She invited us to bring our goodies to her next show....definitely thinking about it. To find out more, go here.

Wojo's had a booth, too. If this doesn't get you in the mood for fall....nothing will :)

Sorry I didn't get photos of all the booths! If I missed yours, I apologize. I couldn't get out much because I had to "man" my own booth but there were many more amazing people I wish I could've included here.

A big thank you also goes to my best buddy, Linda, for helping me during the show. I was on my own most of the day and she would come over from Wren in the Willow's booth if she saw I needed help. 

This was truly one of the best shows we've ever done. There were carriage rides, folk music playing, good food (which was also a fundraiser for abused children), great vendors, and very well organized. After the show some of the vendors met at Bittersweet Cafe for a bite to eat and just to get to know each other - that was a nice perk. Dawn and Dick thought of everything! Congratulations to you both!

Looking forward to their next show :)


  1. What a great show and I love all of your new pieces in the booth.


  2. It looks amazing. I have lots of great things about this show from other bloggers who attended.

  3. I'd have been in heaven shopping all those booths! Glad it was a great show for you! Great setting too at the barn!

  4. Awesome pictures Teresa. I attended the show as a shopper and thought it was wonderful. Your booth looked great, I especially love the Sheep hooked rug you had for sale. I'll be posting my pictures from the show this evening.
