In the Spirit of Friends, Malabar Farms Show

Hubby and I spent yesterday at Malabar Farms in Lucas, Ohio. It was one of the best primitive shows I have ever been too. If you didn’t go… you absolutely missed out on some amazing eye candy. It was a beautiful day with blue sky's and sunshine!

The Heritage Festival was also going on that day and there was a really cool encampment on the property from times gone by. That was really fun too.

Here are out pics from the day. Sorry no booth pics. I didn’t ask anyone and I was way to caught up in the pretties to take pics!  I did shop a lot (Imagine… me Shopping?!?! lol)  and I will share pics of that later.

For now…

Beautiful working horses.



Camp Pics… This was awesome! These people were actually camping and staying here for the weekend. This was a working functioning camp.










Malabar Farm. Amazing house!





Hubby hammin’. LOL!


Crazy shopping!!!!


The coolest people ever!!!! Check them out! I just had to get a pic with them. Mr. Primcat and I want to dress up like them for Halloween! Would that not be the coolest?


They shot these cannons off every hour on the hour! It was really cool! So thundering it shook the whole place!



That was our day at Malabar Farms. I highly recommend this show and guarantee you I will never miss it again. It was so much fun! Pics of my new treasures coming soon.

Until next time…

Carmen and the Primcats

Hi, Carmen
Hubby & I went also~ Great show~ Just so pretty there~ the setting is peaceful~ the vendors amazing!!!

Linda said...

Hi Carmen......oh, I am so glad that you posted such great pics. I was so mad that I forgot my camera. Isn't that just the best setting ever? I kept seeing those people strolling around and I had to stare at the man's white curled up mustache, and he had the deepest voice. There is an article about the farm in yesterday's Columbus Dispatch about the farm. I didn't realize that it is 1000 acres.
Be waiting for more pics!

I have heard so much about this show and would give my eyeteeth (if crows had eyeteeth) to go! So not fair that we don't have things like that here!!! (Yes, I'm pouting...because I CAN!) That house is GORGEOUS!!! WOO HOO!! You and hubby are the photos of you two!! Thanks for sharing....not the same as being there - but at least I know what I'm missing! ;o) Happy Monday! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

What a wonderful beautiful time. I am so glad you posted pictures. I love the working camps and people all dressed up. You can really just imagine how things were in the early 1900's. Very cool. -Steph-
