Charm at the Farm Review

I’ve never been so glad for Monday to arrive.  If that’s not a sign of how the weekend went, I don’t know what is.  One of my kiddos is battling an upper respiratory infection requiring breathing treatments every 2-3 hours.  Around.  The.  Clock.  Since my husband was out of town, I was up with her all night.  She’s still not 100%, and we’re taking her back in to see if this turned in pneumonia.  All this to say, I was not productive on the home project front.  But today I’m going to catch up several weeks to talk about Charm at the Farm and the amazing shops I found.

Charm at the Farm is an open air market north of Cincinnati.  They hold the market a few times a year with vendors selling a wide variety of items.  Everything from farmhouse chic home decor to artwork to clothing to furniture to fashion accessories.  There’s also food trucks selling the ever important coffee, muffins, and lunch items.  The fall market fell on a weekend of cold, rainy weather.  I almost backed out on going but happy I didn’t as I found a ton of holiday items.  Since it is held on a real farm (read: wear boots if rainy) you need to dress appropriately.  Ok, onto the fun stuff.

Emily June Handmade

I found this Ohio embroidery kit at her booth and fell in love.  I’ve wanted to work on my embroidery skills but more complicated projects intimidate me.  Emily June Handmade’s kits are great for beginners looking to try out a new skill without committing to a larger project.  She also has an Etsy shop linked above.

Cotton Blossom Exchange

Hands down, this is my favorite booth at Charm at the Farm.  I pretty much wanted to buy one of everything.  They carry farmhouse, French style, and industrial chic home decor.  It sounds like an odd combo now that I type it out, but trust me, it just works.  Also, the ladies who work the booth are amazingly friendly and helpful.  They were standing out in the cold & rain for hours but their customer service was still top-notch.  I came home with this LED lantern for one of my bookcases.  Tell me this isn’t adorable!

Cottom Blossom Exchange’s holiday decor was on point, too.  I came home with several goodies to freshen up my Christmas decor.  These wooden Christmas trees are versatile and neutral enough to incorporate into a variety of color schemes.

A friend and I both came home with these cute keys for Santa.  I’m planning to have our Elf on a Shelf deliver these before Christmas.  It’s fun for kids who are still at the age they believe in the magic.  Once they’re grown I can easily turn the key into a Christmas ornament, too.

I also came home with an LED Christmas tree lantern but don’t see it on their site.  It must be sold out.  I’ll show you how I incorporate it into my holiday decor in a few weeks.  If you’re in driving distance to Cincinnati I highly suggest Charm at the Farm for shopping for unique items while also supporting small businesses.
