Vintage Thingie Thursday

Each year there is an outdoor quilt show in the little town of Trenton Florida.

Not only are their quilts on display, the towns people dress up in Pioneer costumes and display old craft techniques.

There are old sewing machines on display and some that are for sale.

There is a historian who explains about the different quilt patterns, some of which are very vintage.

A band entertains the crowd during lunch.

But what I like the best is the old buildings.

Thanks for coming along with me.

What a fun event, but I hope it wasn't blistering hot for those folks dressed in all that old-time garb!

It looks like a nice event. Florida, though? I thought it would be hot in those outfits also.

How I would dearly love to attend this show. Nothing I love or appreciate more than pretty hand make quilts.

This looks like so much fun. I love town events like this, so much history. I hope they have little AC units under their clothes. Thanks so much for sharing and for visiting with me.

Thanks for a little tour of the fun day you had in Trenton. I enjoyed the ladies dressed up for the occasion and the beautiful quilts. A nice vintage celebration.
Hugs, Jeanne

I love events like this. I think it's so important to remember how things used to be done, what clothes looked like! Can you imagine dressing like this everyday and in this heat! Ouch! Wonderful images. Thank you!

I have always wanted a handmade quilt. The ladies in the photos look so authentic! This looks like a fun day. I wish I kept up with sewing lessons I took years ago. I love fabric but can't sew! Visiting from Seasonal Sundays. xo,

What a lovely fair! I'm blessed with quilts that my grandmother loving pieced and quilted for me and my children!

How delightful. Isn't it wonderful when we find places that are throwbacks to another time?
