~Photos of Summers Past Farms Antique & Craft Fair~

I wanted to share photos of our sale at 
Summers Past Farms this last weekend.
Carly made this book for us of our garden.
We always take it with us to the sales so, everyone can see 
the before and after photos.
Getting things ready before the fair.

We were blessed with good weather.
We had a lot of fun and met wonderful new friends.
Mary and Tami stopped by. 

Paige loved our vintage Paris windows.

We were so lucky to meet Joan Embery.
She loved Stan's plants and invited us both to visit her 50 acre ranch in Lakeside. How lucky are we!
Here's a little information about her.

  12. I am so bummed I missed the sale. We had this and the Avocado Festival on our lists of what to do over the weekend. We ended up going to the Avocado Festival in Fallbrook. I love to visit Summer's Past Farms. Hopefully I will be able to go when you are there again. We live in Escondido and are not far from you. Do you ever sell outside of your home?

  13. What wonderful displays! Love those old windows you did up...very nice! The shell gardens are so fun:)

  14. Dear Stan and Jody, Can't believe I didn't know about your sale at Summer's Past but what an incredible show of crafts you had. You two are so creative and talented. Carly looks beautiful too. Love the Mother's Day trip upto Santa Cruz and the special breakfast Scott and Carly made for you. love from Linda xx
