The annual Coburg Antique Fair in Coburg, Oregon is my favorite scheduled event of the entire year. I love it. I’ve been going for five years, and every time I see lots of the same stuff, but I always encounter something new or interesting or weird or fun as well. You can see my post from last year’s Coburg Antique Fair with lots of photos here.
I apologize in advance that this post is SO long with photos, but I couldn’t restrain myself.

Okay, so what did I buy? Well, I got lucky and found some pretty good loot…
a rake head to use for hooks on the kitchen wall next to an almost identical specimen — $1
2 pulleys for Henry — $10 + $8
an enameled wash basin — $5
a broad axe head that will be a gift for my father in law who lost his old one in the fire that burned down his woodshop over the winter — $ undisclosed
2 enameled colanders that will go quite nicely with the bright orange one that I already have — $10 + $8
2 hay hooks for our overhead kitchen pot rack — $4 + $4
a copper cuff that I’m not sure I have the nerve to wear — $2
an enameled teapot and a nice egg beater special requested by my mom for my mom — $ undisclosed
a nice long spatula — $2
a giant potato ricer that we’ll clean up and use for honey extraction — $12.50
a cast iron cornbread pan that I’m hoping to use for making scones (and I’ll have to start making lots of scones) — $20
a cast iron AEbleskiver pan that was a big splurge/impulse buy because I’ve never made nor eaten AEbleskivers before, but now I have a reason to start — $40 (If any of you have any secret family recipes or tips for making AEbleskivers, please pass them along. I’d love to hear them.)
All in all, I had a great time, saw some amazing things, and brought home some real treasures. See you next year, Coburg!
