Renninger’s Antique Extravaganza

Renninger’s Antique Extravaganza

We made our annual drive to Mount Dora for the Renninger’s Antique Extravaganza on Friday.  I seriously look forward to this all year long.  

Although there are two more Antique Extravaganzas this season, this is the BIG ONE!  

And it was crazy busy.  We headed out of Homosassa at our typical time–it’s almost a 2 hour trip.  Got there at 9 am.  And the parking lot was already almost full!  What???  I think there were a lot more men treasure hunting, too.  

We walked in the gate and were greeted by this dead fox and dead damn squirrel.  Knew it was going to be a day of strangeness with a heavy dose of taxidermy.

All I can think is that this antelope or antelope relative once upon a time was leaping over terrain.  And now it sits with its fake eyes on some lovely wicker outdoor furniture.

Squirrel for rent?  Squirrel apartment?

A sitar!  Could this be one of George Harrison’s sitars.  Probably not….

More animals.  This time they are concrete.

On this treasure hunt, Connie was the winner. Typically she buys tiny things.  This year she filled up the back of my grammy van.

I was kind of disappointed that I didn’t find anything that “spoke” to me.  Everything I bought was new stuff.  Maybe I already have too many treasures????

But we had fun!

  1. I look forward to this also….rain or shine. We drove separately so we could fill up 3 vehicles! Brought the grand niece so she can learn early. Always a fun time. I really enjoy the kettle Corn!
