                         Make Plans Now



It's never to early to start planning your Country Living Fair Getaway.  I always say , if I wasn't a vendor , I definitely would be coming to shop .  Oh, who am I kidding , I'm a vendor and I still shop.  I just have to work most of the time, but hey, that's what I'm there for.  

So start talking to your friends, your sisters, your co-workers, your neighbors or anybody else you can think of and MAKE PLANS NOW!!

You Just Never Know



That's right...You just never know what your booth is gonna look like until you get there.. Yes I always have a plan penciled out, that I  change many many times ,but until show time it's always negotiable.
It starts out months ahead picking and shopping for all the things that we  just love.  Usually we buy way more than we can stuff into our booth ( this happens often ). When we start placing the large pieces ,they just never seem to fit like they did on paper.  So we just keep on adjusting and rearranging until ....."Wow , I love the way this looks"  Well you get the picture.  Our next show is The Columbus Ohio Country Living Fair Sept 18- 19 - 20 .  This would be a great weekend getaway or a perfect girls trip.  So come on out and see us because you just never know.......
Thought I would leave you with some pics from The Nashville TN Country Living Show in April.

2014 In Review

Here it is February and I'm just now posting about last year's shows.  Well better late than never or that's what they say.   We had a really great year...Great Shows, Great Friends and Great Junk !!!By junk ,  I mean all kinds of vintage , antique or unique finds , that I  ( or anybody else ) just can't live without.
So now it's time to do it all over again.  Really,  it never stops.  The treasure hunting is a year round thing .  It's just in your blood.  You have to do it.... go to an auction ,  hit a good flea market , or hit your favorite hot spot.  Yes, we all have our top secret junking places.
Once, we've found all of that loot, then the work begins.  We load it  , unload it , clean it ( think raccoon poop ) fix it, price it , load it again,  unload it again, ( yes,  our backs hurt ) display it ( that's the fun part ) and we sell it .  And we LOVE it.  It's just what we do .
Here are some pics from last years shows.
