BLUE MT. LAKE -- Some clouds, some sun but no rain and autumn-like temperatures made for a good weekend when over 50 rustic makers exhibited and sold their creations during The Adirondack Museum’s 26th Annual Rustic Furniture Fair Saturday and Sunday.

Artisans and artists from all over the United States, some from as far away as Norridgewock, Maine and Sayner, Wisc., came to Blue Mt. Lake for the event.

Local rustic furniture makers included three from Long Lake: Russ and Liz DeFonce of Bookman Designs, Mike Roberts of Roberts Rustic and Jamie Sutliff.

The “great camps” of the rich and famous popularized the Adirondack rustic style of decor, originating with Camp Pine Knot in Raquette Lake in the late 1800s.

The crowds were good Saturday and the same was expected for Sunday. The fall foliage was rapidly advancing with promises of the full color beauty to come by the end of September.

The fall fun continues in Indian Lake with the Adirondack Mountains Antique Show Sept. 18-22 and the Great Adirondack Moose Festival Sept. 28-29.
