Next weekend is finally the Ohio White Tent Event in Springfield Ohio, and since that is my hometown, I thought I would share with you guys some of my favorite places to go in Springfield, and some of the vendors I’m looking forward to seeing!
Now, if you’re not too full from all of the amazing food trucks they’re going to have at the Ohio White Tent Event (I’m pretty excited for the Graeter’s Ice Cream Truck, and The Ohio Farm Direct Truck, which sells 100% organic grass fed cheese, burgers and ice cream!) I highly recommend heading over to Mike & Rosy’s Deli. They are known for their steamed sandwiches, and in my pre gluten free days my lunch of choice was their turkey, swiss and mayo on white, with a side of macaroni salad, a cup of Lumber Jack bean soup (which I can still eat!) and an orange soda. If you’ve never had a steamed sandwich, you had better make this a priority while you’re in town. If three days of shopping hasn’t worn you out, you have to check out Young’s Jersey Dairy, which is only 20 minutes away from Heart of Ohio Antique Center! Once you wear yourself out playing putt-putt, feeding the goats, and hitting some home runs in the batting cages, head to the Dairy Store for ice cream and sandwiches, or down the road to The Golden Jersey Inn for a good old country home cooked meal!
On to shopping! There are a few vendors showing there, that have collectively decorated my house. In fact, I purposely left my kitchen a bit unfinished because I was anticipating hitting up Knight’s Antiques, Flower Child Vintage, and of course Abbey Knight’s perfectly curated booth of mid-century modern and industrial finds. But there are also a few booths that I’m looking forward to discovering for the first time next weekend!
- I already know that I need to make a pact with my Mom ahead of time, to stop me from buying every serving tray from Fourth Coast Design Co. to use as props for my food shoots. (Actually, I better make it a pact not to buy everything from Fourth Coast Design Co.).
- I need another piece of jewelry like I need a hole in the head, but after taking a peak at Hendersweet’s Etsy store and Phyllis & Hazel’s website, I think I’m going to need to add more necklace hooks above my vanity!
- Since my husband gets to miss out on all the fun next weekend, I think I’ll be nice and pick him up a candle from 419 Trading Co. for his man cave. With scents like ‘Bourbon & Tobacco’ and ‘Midwest Firewood’, they’re perfect for him to burn while he writes the next great American novel.
Well I hope to see you all there! Look for me, I’ll be the girl lugging around a bunch of wooden serving trays and trying to write an Instagram post! (@stayatworkhousewife)
