The Country Living Fair in Columbus allows us the chance to enjoy the Country Living lifestyle in a fun, festival atmosphere with cooking, crafting, and other DIY demonstrations, as well as fantastic local and artisanal food.  In addition, I know we will be drooling, buying and getting a lot of DIY inspiration from more than 200 vendors offering antiques, gifts, home decor, jewelry and much more!

Country Living Editor-in-Chief Sarah Gray Miller, and many of the magazine’s editors and contributors will be on site to bring the pages of the magazine to life.  That is exactly what I am hoping for….walking through the pages of one of my favorite magazines!  Special guests scheduled to attend the Columbus Country Living Fair, and participate in book signings, demonstrations and panel discussions include:

  • Brent Ridge and Josh Kilmer-Purcell, of Cooking Channel’s “The Fabulous Beekman Boys”!
  • Cari Cucksey, estate sale expert and host of HGTV’s “Cash & Cari”!
  • Faith Durand, executive editor of and author of “Bakeless Sweets”!
  • Allison Chapman, owner of Igloo Letterpress in Columbus!
  • Kelly McCants, founder of Modern June and author of “Sewing with Oilcloth”!

Tons more…..I promise!  Isn’t Fall the perfect time of year to take a getaway?  Interested in going, and didn’t win the pair of tickets?

  1. I hope I win…..I certainly could use a getaway with my hubby, and Columbus is so close to where we already live! I am really not a Fair person, but would have to say just walking around and seeing all the booths and food.
