Steampunk
Renninger’s Steampunk Industrial Show Mt. Dora, FL.
You can find all kinds of things at the show. We just happened to run into a baby buggy in very good condition.  It just needed a little cleaning. It was what we were looking for online and there it was at the show.

Looking for it? You can find it.

Will and Patty have a table under the covering twice a year.

Will makes hats and other cool steampunk stuff. Fiona is trying on a hat that she commissioned Will to make for her.
Nice lawnmower, made out of odds and ends.
Ray made his coat. It was first sewing job he ever did. The guy next to him had his mother make his coat. It had a lot of cool things on it, but Ray was happy he made his own coat.  Both men looked outstanding in their coats because each was unique in its own way.
There is almost no limit to the imaginative concoctions that people make.  The Segways above have been converted into very impressive machines indeed.   And the man in the photos at the right has used his imagination to make a truly unique costume.
Steampunk events bring out all kinds of creative outfits.  Just about anything goes as long as it looks Victorian and somewhat industrial.
We enjoyed dressing up and joining in on the fun at this event.  Each person who dressed for the event was unique and each outfit had interesting components.
This is the baby buggy we found and bought from one of the vendors.  It fits in perfectly with the things we like to do.
You can see from some of these photos how the buggy turned out once we cleaned it up and “refreshed” the finishes on it.  It took some time and a little research, but it was a labor of love and we are enjoying using it as a prop for some of our adventures.
After removing all the rust from the carriage, Ray painted all of the metal parts except for the chrome pieces.  We decided the fabric was too fragile to use, so we replaced the fabric liner and made a cushion for the bed of the buggy.
The buggy is now getting use as a prop in photos during some of our vintage outings.  It is always a conversation piece.
The original wooden spoke wheels and the rubber tires are still usable on the buggy.  The chrome on the wheels was rusted, but they polished up nicely with a lot of elbow grease.
