The Coburg Antique Fair was held last Sunday, and as usual, it did not disappoint. In this first post, I’m going to give you a bajillion photos because I couldn’t muster the effort to pare them down. Coming soon, I’ll show you what I took home. You can look back at my photos from the CAF in 2011 and 2012 if you care to.
I bought this exact model of AEbleskiver pan last year for $8 or $10 more than this one was priced at. I think I saw five of them at the fair this year, which struck me as strange, but part of the fun is noticing the things that trend in or out from year to year.

There was some great cast iron at the fair this year, but the problem was that when I looked at the tables full of skillets and dutch ovens, I realized I kinda already have one of each model. The only thing I was seriously tempted by was this style of “pancake pan”, but it also seemed pretty silly since I’m perfectly capable of making pancakes on my cast iron griddle.
There was SO much enamelware everywhere.
The four above photos were all taken in what was probably my favorite booth at this year’s fair. It was all piles and racks of hardware. I didn’t actually buy anything there, but I was tempted even though I really don’t need any knobs, drawer pulls, or door plates.
This crazy cast iron pan had imprints of different animals in it. I’ve never seen something like it, although it really doesn’t seem all that functional. The guy wanted $200 for it, so I was able to pass it up.
