Cranberry Fest

September is fading away fast. We knew it would. But it is also the month of festivals in our area. Applefest, Cranberry Festival, Oktoberfest and so on.

Our annual excursion to CranFest was a little different this year. It has a flea market, farmer's market, and craft booths for miles. It was fun, but just not the same good "junk". You just never know unless you attend, but the food is always good. Like frozen cheesecake dipped in chocolate on a stick.

We of course did manage to find a few treasures along the way. And I even remembered to take a few picture this time.






These crates were very reasonably priced too, but they didn't go home with us.





I am not sure what this guy's story was but his car was quite the interesting.


Look, it's a lantern tree.




We both purchased junk girl charms, which we hunted down after seeing some woman wearing a similar one, and managed to find a few other treasures.

Thanks for your post about Cranberry Fest. I have friends who go up faithfully and know dealers who were there...but I have never been! Come by for a visit. I am from Northern Illinois and do the Grayslake Market.
