Party at J&J's Suga Shack - This Saturday!!!

J&J's Suga Shack is the alter-ego of Barn House. Every once in a while, we go a little country crazy and just let it all hang out! Our first Flea Market is going to be QUITE an event. If you don't know us, you are sure to find out who we REALLY are on Saturday. I don't know if this is good or not, but you are sure to get a good laugh (most likely at our expense).
Today was our first day of set up. "Mister" (me) stayed home to make sure there wasn't too much lolly-gagging going on. I have to keep my eye (my good eye) on that Joe sometimes! ;o) Natalie (Sparrow--aka Master Primitive Hunter), Aleta & Bill (Flourishes AND The Silly Bear), Julie Verburg (The Withies), Lynne Gunderson and Julie Brough were all here dropping off a portion of their goodies. Tomorrow is the 1st day of the party when ALL of the dealers will be here working their magic. Are you ready for this??
We have six entries in each category of the Bake-Off/Cook-Off dealer competition. Our entries - "Barn House's 'Fire in the Hole!' Chili" and "Grand Mama Pearl's Famous Peach Cobbler" are sure to win!!! We can't wait to wear our Blue Ribbon's proudly at The After Party...not to mention running around rubbing every one's nose in it. How FUN will that be!!! AND, we have celebrity judges too!!! You may have heard of Donna and Phillip (Stylist and Photographer Extraordinaires)--they do covers for such magazines as Country Living and Country Home, among many, many others. HEE HAW! I mentioned in an earlier post our new friend Krista Colvin, AM Northwest's Lifestyle Expert. Hallelujah, she is bringing a chariot filled with lovely and very talented ladies who will also be judges!!! Her friend Tracey is coming all the way from Nevada for this here party. We have many other fabulous judges too--more on them soon!! We have politely asked Cindy (Queen of Tarte) and her Manly-Man Barry to be sure to remove the antlers from their 'Antelope' Chili...or did she say 'Gazelle' Chili??? It's hard to keep up with Miss Cindy sometimes. She is soooo Fancy!!
OK y'all, "Mister" is T-I-R-E-D...there is still so much to do! Gotta go tend to them chickens...hope to see you on Saturday...

Oh, I wish I was going! We have a wedding to go to today, however. If the turned leg wooden table doesn't sell in the 2nd pic, can I drive down on Monday and buy it? I'm coming down next time, without a doubt! I'm totally envying anyone who gets to go this time.

You 2 are sooo inspirational! I am in wisconsin and may never make to one of your events but I will just read and live vicariously. I have a little shop in WI and would love to get dealers together to do an event like yours. We have nothing like it here in the country...kath
