Double Feature: Antiques and Shiny Old Cars
It seems there is always a good excuse to have a festival in downtown Marietta. People love to come to these weekend things. Usually they have eats and it is always fun to watch people.
Downtown Marietta has an antique thing around this time every year with some of the same venders returning. There was one man who had a booth that had the best old post cards. I remember flipping through his cards many times. Apparently, he got tired of all that flipping and no buying. I didn’t see his booth this year.
One man’s junk is another man’s treasure.
One of the things I don’t like about all these festivals is that they move the Saturday Farmer’s Market to a more remote place. I like consistently, I bet the venders of the Farmer’s Market do too.
This weekend there was also an antique auto show managed by the Marietta Museum of History. They offered 1st, 2nd, and 3rd prizes. At the museum the other day when we went to hear the lecture about Regina Rambo Benson the lady head of the museum said last year because of bad weather, and no restored antique car owner wants to take their car out in bad weather, only three participants showed up, just enough to receive the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd prize.
