Saturday was the day to be in Ridge Spring, South Carolina, for the sixth annual Magnolia Ridge Antique and Art Gathering.
More like a Dinner On the Ground or Homecoming rolled up with much-loved vintage and antique items.
The men gather in the front of the house to talk about everything while their wives shop.
If you name something old, I am sure you could have found it here.
Dealers set up around the yard - under trees if they were lucky.
Lots to fall in love with like this red barrow probably for bricks.
The iconic rusted orange mailbox of Magnolia Ridge Farm.
Miss Harriet and her lovely plants were there.
She sells her plants in Ridge Spring just before the railroad tracks - open Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
Or she says to just call the number on the shop door and she will be right over.
Yes, that door says $15 and I did not buy it.
Love the prim patriotic couple.
Olive from Olive Out was there with hubby Joe and partner Beth.
They have booths in Ridge Antiques - The Broome Closet.

I have a secret I have not shared with you.
I love old tractors!
Especially the rusty ones.
There were quite a few on exhibit by the Palmetto Tractor Club in Saluda, SC.
Quite impressive restoration work on these pampered beasts.
Of course, I am attracted to the rusty, crusty ones.
Palmetto Tractor Club will have a show at Harmon's Christmas Tree Farm on June 13, 8am-3pm.
3152 Augusta Hwy. Lexington, SC.
There will be a yard sale ($10 a table to set up) and activities for the children.
It will feature pulled pork BBQ.
I always spend a lot of time at this dealer's space.
It is packed with goodies.
Magnolia Ridge Farm - the house - a beauty!
Look at the trim work.
Tables and tables and ...
tables and ...
Some things I meant to buy and forgot:
This vibrant blue house.
A couple of these books.
The tiny butcher block.
The pink chair.
A lovely ladder but too tall for me.
This is Maddie - a Rust Princess.
She had a table set up with her rusty finds.
Maddie spends some of her free time digging around the railroad tracks collecting rusty spikes, hinges, locks, etc.
I enjoyed talking with Maddie about our common love for rust.
Dale makes bird houses and benches from reclaimed wood.
This is always the first place I stop and buy stuff.
His shop is in Abbeville, SC - right off the square.
Just for Benita of Chasing Quaintness .
I found a Coca-Cola Santa who still had his Coke bottle!
This was found in Millie's space - she is in The House Next Door - just off the square in Edgefield, SC.
Look at that adorable face - one only a Rust Goddess would love!
I planned to tell Chucks he followed me home like a puppy, but I knew he would not believe me.
I will show my treasures on this week's Friday Finds post.
Hope you enjoyed the Gathering.
