Milton Farm Spring Craft Show

9 May

My former student and a fellow Salsa dancer Thomas C. designs and manufactures unique jewelry pieces.  His company is Darnel & Co.  We ran into him at a friend’s pre-wedding bash a week before and he invited us to visit his booth at the Milton Farm Spring Craft Show.  It was Thomas’ first time as a vendor and we wanted to come out and cheer him on.

He even built his own cabinets and displays!

The Show was held inside and outside at County Heritage Park.

Puslinch Township Hall built in 1867.

There was a lot of original work for sale by the local artisans.  I haven’t expected to see so much cat-inspired art: cat-shaped throw pillows made of antique sugar sacks cloth, funky cat dishes, a whole rack of t-shirts dedicated to some hard-core cat lovers.  Too bad we didn’t find anything suitable for Dina there.  My boyfriend caved in and bought a magnetic bracelet which has numerous health benefits. My pick at the Show is the Alphabet Photography Booth.  Unfortunately, it was not possible (for obvious reasons) to take any pictures of their work.  The artist would photograph various objects that resemble letters and then collage them to create any  words or names.  How cool is that? It would make a unique gift for someone special (wink, wink).

County Heritage Park has a cool collection of antique farm equipment and vintage tractors.

Stationary steam engine built in 1900. It supplied power at the National Table Co. of Owen Sound, ON.

Stationary Diesel Engine built in 1939. This model was a power source for the Hutton’s Feed Mill in Wellburn, ON until 1979.

We had some Hawaiian Kona Coffee at the Show but… an outing for me is not an outing unless I eat.  The food at the Show was a typical fast food fare: burgers, hot dogs and fries so we decided to look for other options in Milton.

We ended up having an excellent meal at Casa Americo on Main Street.  Our food (muscles in a spicy garlic tomato sauce and a Chicken Parmigiana Panini) was washed down with some off-dry White Zinfandel.  Yummy!

Main Street, Milton

Us in a full Eastern-European glory. Well, maybe only half-glory…no high heels 😛

Perfect ending to a perfect day!
