Wiseacres Farm, near Napanee. It has been a dreadful year for berries with all the rain we have been getting. I am most grateful for these! They sure were full of flavour, if not as large as normal.
Of course there was also strawberry shortcake.
I also spent Saturday morning at the market and it was great to see the regulars again.
I will try to remember to take pictures next weekend.

Hubby finally got to a little project I have been wanting done for some time now.
The travel trunk above has been kicking around almost since we moved here. It was a great find at a country estate sale, years ago. The kind of estate sale where you wished you had a bunch more money because EVERYTHING was amazing. Anyway, the trunk comes with its own protective cover, even the handles had their own cover, laced on to keep the leather safe.

We were there looking for something son number three was interested in. In the end we did not get it and that was okay. It looked as though it may have had some condition concerns, but we did give a good try nonetheless.
The person who got it was determined that he was not going home without it, no point in pushing the issue.
It was however a pleasant way to spend a few hours. It wasn't a big auction. Mostly stuff from the barn. The weather was great, overcast, and breezy. No bugs. It was a beautiful property too. There was also a good auctioneer. Easy to follow and didn't flog a dead horse when things slowed down. He kept it moving along very nicely.
I was able to snag this box of vintage train pieces made of cardboard. Imperfect and incomplete but each piece stands well on its own from a collage point of view. Cheap, because it was mostly a tool auction.
I liked how it looked, didn't matter to me what it was used for.
There were a couple other little things that interested me but after the main item we went for was done we decided it was time to head back home to make use of what was left of the day.
