Great Show!

We had a great show this weekend! You've got to remember when you look at these pictures this is a real Flea Market, no grand productions at this market. And we had a tiny load compared to what we usually take to a show! But we were really pleased! And we were very encouraged cause the crowd was mostly age 20 to 30 something shoppers! This is the age group of shoppers we need in force to get this economy up and running again!

Several bloggers came out to see me, and I was happy to meet every one of you! That is the fun part of this job, getting to meet total strangers that you have something in common with! I want to thank every single customer that shopped with us this weekend!

Hope you enjoy the pictures! It's hard to take pictures without walls or something to stop the eye!

Here is a little sneak peak of a few things that haven't been loaded yet. Kinda got the black thing going on! Come on out and see us Friday through Sunday, you'll be glad you did!

This is the first time we've taken the new van to a show.
Seems like it is going to hold plenty of treasures for the show!

Brown Transferware

One of my true passions is white ironstone! But who can resist white ironstone with brown flowers on it? And I really love it if it has some staining on it! This was a display of brown transferware I had at the July Brimfield show. Actually, I only sold one oval bowl. I guess people up North don't care for this look? These are some pictures of the second day of sales when I was down to the bare nubbins and trying to make it look like I still had merchandise!

I even like these brown door knobs!

Oh! And I'll never get enough of these white alabaster grapes!

By mid afternoon I had sold the store display table!
I knew it was time to pack up and go home!

While In Texas

When Theresa and I went shopping in Texas we came across some great booths in a couple different malls. Some of these pictures are Lone Star and some are Golightly's. These ladies are very talented! I loved their booths! Hope you enjoy the pictures!

Who Was My Guest?

Did you guess it was Lauri of 2chippys? And let me start by saying we had a blast! She was coming up this way to go the 127 yard sale and wanted to come to see me for a night or two! Of course I couldn't wait! I wasn't planning on going to the 127 yard sale, but on Thursday she talked me into going! OMG, we laughed so much a couple of times almost wet my pants! We didn't get home until 10pm that night, I was so tired I told her I wouldn't go on Friday even if I know I could get a whole van full of junk for free! Well when I woke up on Friday I felt off we went again! I was sad to see her leave on Saturday morning!

Junk hunters!

No, Lauri you can't take that home with you!

Sarah got in on the fun as well!

We ran into some of Billie Bobs kin folk!
This is Uncle Elmer and Aunt Daisy!
As you can see, Uncle Elmer has had one to many!
It was field after field of all kinds of good junk!

Lauri wanted this chair, but I wouldn't let her buy it!

First warm weather we've had in Kentucky!
102 degrees!

Over Night Guest Coming!

I found out last week that I have over night guest coming today! Oh, I was so excited! Then I realize............I had to clean house!! When my children were small I kept my house spic and span. But as I grow older and have so much work to do for the business, house cleaning is the last thing on my list!! It's just not important to me anymore! If I have a free moment I'd rather play cards with my grandson or look at pictures in a decorating book! But when you find out you have someone spending the night, it doesn't take long for you to realize they are going to be in your house long enough to check out forgotten corners, cob webs on chandeliers and what ever else I've let go for such a long time!! I happy to say my house is clean as a whistle!!

There is one little thing though, what is it when you start cleaning you feel the need to change things around! It's not enough that you have to clean, but now is the time you choose to tear things apart and try to put it all back together before time runs out and your guest arrive! That's exactly what happened to me! Thought I would show you a few changes I made while cleaning! Boy it feels good to have such a clean house!

Billie Bob's family tree!!

I bought this show case a couple of months ago to put in my booth. The top is 9ft. long, we think it came out of a deli. It was so dirty you couldn't even see through the glass! After Craig got finished cleaning it up I liked it so much I decided to put in my kitchen and store dishes in it. I think it's much better than the store counter we had in there, this case lets in more light!
