Friday we went to one of the shows and it was great this year. We found so many wonderful handmade items and unusual goodies for the shop, including a really great potting bench. Back to North Shore Primitives to see all of their handmades that were out for the open house. SO MUCH FUN!!! When we got back to our room, we hauled everything in and had to check out our purchases. Another late night of brainstorming - this time until 1:30 a.m.
Saturday morning we were up and at 'em again and off to another show. We shopped straight for 6 hours - then it was time to load again. As you can see, there wasn't much room left.
Good thing Carol brought this little helper for our room at night. What a great way to unwind from the day, a nice glass of wine (in hotel plastic cups) and piles of prim goodies.
Okay, we were a little worried that our cart wouldn't fit back in...
but, tada, she did it!!!
Just one little sample of what's in store for you on Saturday. We drove back to Michigan and talked so much that we hardly took a breath. Had to get back to the shop and get everything unloaded so Carol could get the goodies she bought for herself to take home. I know she's having a ball today playing in prim Easter goodies. The shop looks like a bomb went off, there are piles everywhere!!!
This is going to be one CRAZY week!!! I have pricing to do, lots of sewing, the shop "redo" and then Friday night we'll put out everything and ready ourselves for the open house. Hope you can make it - I know you won't be able to leave without some great prim ware.
Our Sharon was so great to fill in while we were gone. She brought in some fantastic painted items too, which will also be out for the Hoe Down.
I think I'm going to take one afternoon to just crash (after I go see Dad). Whew, what a whirlwind weekend - but SO MUCH FUN!!
Until next time...
