Colonial Burlington Wood Street Fair

Hello everyone.  Happy Sunday to you all.  As fall gently makes its entrance, I can't help but think of all the great outdoor activities to plan and enjoy.  Picnics, gatherings, apple picking, fields of pumpkins to explore and the local annual street fairs. 
 
Such as our towns annual Wood Street Fair.   This much anticipated annual event which takes place, in the midst of the Historic City of Burlington, New Jersey draws over 25,000 visitors and is comprised of more then 175 of the areas finest artisans and crafters.  Visitor's also get to tour many of the historic sites and homes in the area including one of New Jersey's oldest houses, the Revell House (ca. 1685), fabled site of Burlington's hospitality to Benjamin Franklin.   Our town is a little gem of history hidden on the banks of the Delaware River.  Burlington offers a taste of the earliest colonial American living, history and it also the place we are proud to call home.
 
Here are a few photos of the fair and  historic homes for you to enjoy.  Have a wonderful week.

  2. I enjoyed the afternoon with my husband Art, Janet and my brother (her husband).It was a treat, but also, an valuable lesson at so many levels, especially the guided visits to the many historical homes.
    Janet and I had the honor of sharing thoughts with many of the descendants from these homes.
    We spent a wonderful weekend at their spectacular home, enjoying the company as well as the goodies they prepared for us while there!
    We are certainly going back next year to this annual fair.
    As an added bonus, Janet found quite a couple of beautiful pieces (for her and me)to add to her future vignettes and tablescape displays.
    Proud of you, Janet.

    Luv,

    Lilly

  5. Good Morning Janet, What a wonderful treat for me to take a virtual walk through the streets of Burlington and to enjoy the visit to Wood Street Fair. It is certainly the kind of place I would love to visit.
    The sun was shining and the day was beautiful for you. It was certainly a treat to peek inside Revell House and I love the rocking chair and spinning wheel.
    Burlington is such a beautiful town. Thank you so much, I really enjoyed my visit.
    Enjoy your day.
    Best Wishes

  10. What a beautiful town you live in. I love festivals and fairs! I remember going every year to a Fall Festival that I just loved it, with honey combs and fresh apple pie for sale. They also had apple dumpling and homemade ice cream. Everything was made by these elderly ladies that were just the sweetest people ever. Our kids loved it! Oh, my goodness!!! That silverplate tea set for $35 dollars!!!! Hope you got it. :) Thank you for sharing!
