Hooray! Hooray! One of my favorite times of year is here — fall. Not only does it mean mulling spices and pumpkin everything, it also means fall antique festival season is here. And that, my friends, is almost as yummy as a pumpkin spice muffin with my pumpkin spice latte while my pumpkin spice candle is burning. Ahhhhhh, sweet heaven on earth…antique festivals.
Below is a list of festivals that are on my radar. I am more than happy to add your favorite to my list and get it some publicity. Please email or leave a comment and I’ll add it to my list. The only requirements are that #1 It’s an antique festival #2 It’s in the fall. #3 It’s in the South. (Nothing against our neighbors to the north of the Mason Dixon Line, but that’s the theme of my blog, after all.)
Crabapple Fest Antique & Art Festival (One of my faves! One day only.)
Clinch River Antiques Festival
October 11 & 12
Georgia Apple Festival (This is an apple festival, but the town of Ellijay where it is held has some fantastic antique stores. Have a blast at the apple festival and stop at the stores before you leave.)
October 12-13; 19-20
The Chapel Market
October 19, 2013
Pike Road, Alabama
Braselton Antique & Holiday Festival
October 26 & 27 Besides the festival, there are 5 antique shops within one block of the festival.
Country Living Fair
Scott Antique Markets
Raleigh Flea Market
Tuesdays, Saturdays, Sundays 9-6

I hope you have a blast antiquing this fall. Be sure to stop by my Facebook page and post some pictures of the treasures you get.
