I’m not sure if Pike Road, Alabama is ready.  :)

Good thing it has until October.

October 19 to be exact.

That is when I’m loading up my overflowing trailer with all things vintage from the beautiful rolling hills of Kentucky.

My trailer and I couldn’t resist when my amazing friend, Layla, from The Lettered Cottage called…..and 342 exclamation points later….and a few dances around the kitchen……we are heading to Pike Road, Alabama this October.

Please tell me you like exclamation points!

Please tell me you like all things vintage.

Please tell me you live nearby…..preferably withing driving distance.

Because I’m not the only one.  :)

{gulp)

Are you ready?

There’s Marian from Miss Mustard Seed

and Shauna from Perfectly Imperfect

and Mary from Urban Farmgirl

and Evan from Evan and Company

and Lucy from Lucy’s Inspired

and New York Times best-selling author Mary Kay Andrews.

  22. I only live about an hour away from Pike Road, Al. I cannot believe that all of this awesomeness will be so close. I probably won’t even be able to sleep tonight. There is no way, no how I’m missing this!!!!

  23. So excited for you. This will be wonderful. Please detour by my house.

  24. It’s an 8 hour drive from south Arkansas but I’m thinking definitely worth it! Starting to save my pennies now!

  25. I’m sure you’ll find something in that attic of yours..Happy shopping..

  26. I’m moving to North Carolina in August…wonder how far this would be:-D

  27. Karieanne, how exciting!! I would love to be there. I can just imagine all the great stuff that will be there. Have a blast!!

    Cynthia

  30. I don’t think I’m in driving distance. Oh who am I kidding, I’m not in driving distance of anything except corn fields. But you know if I ever did drive to something I’m not telling you I’m coming, I’m just gonna show up and surprise you.
    Bliss

  36. This sounds so wonderful!!!!…Need to hop in my empty van and take a trip!!!!

  37. Oh, how fun! I can’t even tell you how I wish I was closer. Nothing good like this ever happens in my neck of the woods! Oh well, October is a ways off. Maybe….just maybe….

  38. Oh, how I wish I lived within driving distance of Alabama. Somehow I don’t think Seattle cuts it! I’ll be drooling from afar…

  44. Planning my road trip from Dallas to AL now! I have just enough time to talk my son into letting me borrow his truck so I can bring home to Texas goodies from all my favorite bloggers! So excited!

  45. How FUN!!!! I wonder how long it would take for me to drive there….

  46. Oooh….heavy sigh…..I can’t go! And I so wish I could….but what we really, REEEELY need is to bring you girls to the MIDWEST. Joplin, MO would be nice…..or Springfield, MO….or Kansas City, MO….or Tulsa, OK….or Rogers/Fayetteville, AR….I can easily drive to any one of those places, Miz karianne.

  47. I will be there also! I am about excited as can be! I live almost 5 hours away in Tennessee and plan on going down the day before. I hope there will be enough goodies for all of us that are going! I have seen so many people on the different blogs that are coming! It will be awesome to meet you and everyone!

  48. nancy conner :

    I’ll be there…I also live in East Alabama, probably an hour to 90 minutes from Pike Road!

  49. I will be there, I planned a trip to my sisters in Troy just so I can come to the Chapel Market!! So excited!!!I can’t wait to meet everyone.
