Busy May!!!!!!!

May has been a very busy month for us. We had five weeks to buy,repurpose and pack all of our finds for the Springfield Extravaganza in Ohio. WOW!!! We did it. Springfield was great, better than we had hoped. We met a lot of wonderful people, including the gals from Nostalgias Cottage aka Kathy and Terri. And yes we bought one of their clocks! Everyone was so friendly and helpful. Both of our neighbors were so nice to us. Gooseberry Patch was there signing books and guess what? We got signed cookbooks, too! If you have never been to the Extravaganza, you need to go. Since this was our first show as a vendor, we did not get to do much shopping. Boo Hoo! We will be going back in September for the next show, and maybe we will get to shop more then. All work and no play makes for some sad gals and one grumpy driver on the way home. aka TIM.

Well, besides the show we both had graduates. So we have had parties to decorate for and cookouts to throw. Wow, glad that is all over with. Congrats to our graduates!!! We are so proud of them.

This week we will be revamping the booth at the I-24 Antique Mall, trying to get our Etsy store stocked and hitting some auctions. Fun! Fun!

Here are some pics from Springfield and also check out our new Facebook page.
