Happy Friday evening gals! I ended up staying until 7:30 tonight, because the Holly Hotel had a blue's festival and bar-b-que in the street and tomorrow night they are having a clam bake. It is so festive, they have big white tents set up in Battle Alley and you can hear the music around the corner. After I left the shop, Dick and I finally had a chance to go out to dinner and spend a few minutes alone. It was a much needed break!
Just adding a few more wares I have in the shop and will try to have more tomorrow. Terry has another whole load ready for pick up tomorrow morning! I swear, that girl is like a little machine! I tried to get a better picture of this beautiful, prim dry sink. It is SOO unusual and wonderful. Wish I had a corner that it would fit in!
We got in tart crumbles for your tart burners. Farmhouse Kitchen and Cranberry. $6.95 per jar

How about this wise old owl hiding in his little sack? He is so darn cute. $24.95
These stacking seed boxes are great. They are real wood instead of paper mache. $49.95 for the set.
Got these "candy corn" battery candles at the trade show. $9.95 ea.
Prim old child's ironing board with the advertising label. $29.95
Just got this blue cupboard this week. It has two doors with glass panes and is so darn cute. $195.95
One of my favorites of our trip was this old bonnet on the board for hanging. $29.95
Wooden chalkboards in mustard, green or red. Ripped strip with chalk. $16.95 ea.
A Terry creation! Spooky old witch hat with a mouse and a broom. $34.95
Several ladders throughout the shop - all different prices. I did keep one of these!
MERRY HALLOWEEN sign of canvas. $29.95
Cutest old prim chicken and her chicks! $29.95
Shaker "Jack" on a stick. $19.95
That's all the goodies for tonight. They just keep coming every day!
Our Abbey is so excited, she gets to go spend the day at Terry's house tomorrow to play with her little girl Shey. I know they will have lots of fun and will have new adventures to talk about.
I'm so thrilled! Our daugher-in-law Kim's mom has agreed to work Sunday afternoons for me for awhile. It is going to be such a relief to have Sunday AND Monday off to get some things accomplished! There is SOOOOOO much to do before we are ready to move.
Well gals, I'm beat and heading for my nice cozy bed. Have a great weekend and I hope to have new goodies added tomorrow.
Until next time...
