Back and Blogging after Country Living!

Hudson On 9

 Wow! What an eventful 3 days plus 2 days of set up for The Country Living Fair in Rhinebeck, NY.
I am exhausted but happy with the outcome and will do it again next year for sure! We were surrounded by some great vendors who were also kind and fun to boot!  There was so much to see and just take in. However, the booth was so busy that I did not have enough time to really check out as many vendors as I wanted to.  I did manage to take photos of some of my favorite vendors that I personally liked as well and meet some great people. We are so excited to say that HGTV design star Emily Henderson and a friend visited our booth,  loved it and bought a fabulous large ebonized oval oak mirror for a fireplace!
We also were so lucky to be neighbors across from the booth of Richard Kollath and Edward McCann who are designers, stylists and editors who contribute to Country Living Magazine and have wonderful books out as well, check them out at  We also are thrilled that we may be featured in The Country Living Magazine for our booth and creative custom pieces and I will let you know as soon as I find out which month it will be in! Special thanks for Castle and Cliff blog for stopping by Booth it was lovely meeting you!!
Enough of my chatter I am sure you want to see pics so here they are!!!
I just loved these ladies and the T-Shirts1

A good time had by all!!

Our Booth on opening day !
Check out our custom lighting and furniture online!

Our Custom coffee table made out of recycled barn wood!

1923 pencil sketches from an estate, they are so lovely even a few are gone please check for availability on site.

One of our favorite vendor friends - Millwright, proprietors: Lindy Wright and Al Boutin!

Lindy makes custom lamps and pillows, they had great things!!

Lindy is thinking of retiring but her pieces may soon be available through Hudson On 9, especially the antique French shutters that we absolutely fell in love with!

Again some of her wonderful lamps!!

This great booth was run by Kollath and McCann, and a large portion of profits form sale go to feeding the hungry!

Again from Kollath and McCann booth these hanging pinecones were such a hit, they sold out!

This booth was gorgeous and run by Mike and Jodie Roberts. They filled this booth with the most lovely live topiaries and sold out by last day!

Check out the amazing birdhouse from Maine!

This cool booth was from {outdated}an antique cafe. Not only was there great vintage pieces for sale they literally have a cafe where they make fabulous food. The cookies, brownies and crackers they brought were not only delicious but beautiful and organic. Check them out at!

Great Post office carts that sold out for outdated-cafe. They can be used for magazines, laundry or slap a piece of glass or wood on top and you have a great coffee table!

Stop back tomorrow when I post  the great style booths and there wonderful table setting scapes!
