Some folks have asked what the heck we do between each of our events. Well, immediately after each show, Joe takes off to far away lands to shop, shop and shop more than you could even imagine! He (all of a sudden) thinks that because we have had a great sale that he is Mr. Martha Stewart or something.This is an amazing old hutch he picked up for The Barn House Home Collection that has quickly become one of our favorite pieces in the house. With all of the shopping Joe does, and all the crying I do on the way to/from "The Torture Chamber" (while having my good eye on the bank accounts trying to figure out a good time to scream "STOP SPENDING!"), it seems like before we can blink an eye... the next show is right around the corner! By this time, there has been plenty of time to forget mostly everything we swore we would not forget THIS time...remembering peoples names is the worst for us. We are both notorious for this extremely embarrassing characteristic. Find it in your beautiful hearts to forgive us, please! But I recently did the unimaginable...I left one of our absolutely favorite people off "The Line Up" on the last post.Little Byrd (Rebekah) has been scheduled for months...we had been talking about all of the wonderful treasures she would be bringing to our Summer/Fall Harvest Show (yes, for months) -- lots of vintage finds, hats sewn from recycled westers, fingerless gloves recycled from old sweaters, woolen (vintage Pendleton wool!) totes, and a whole pile of cashmere sweaters and cute vintage clothing. YES, I knew ALL of this...especially because we were invited over to her house last weekend to visit before heading out on a very special excursion. Sorry Sunshine-Sweetie-Suga!! I blamed Joe for distracting me when I was writing the blog and she quickly forgave me! ;o) So where did we go????
If you weren't at the Grand Opening Celebration of Ink & Peat this weekend, you REALLY missed quite the party! Pam's blog is such an inspiration and must be one of the most popular blogs out there. Her store is absolute perfection...every detail is stunning!!
The only thing missing was some chickens running around causing havoc. :o) Thanks Pam for the invite, we had a wonderful time!
Now it's back to work for us!!! Our featured dealers (Little Byrd, Worthy Goods, Second Childhood Girlfriends and Sparrow who FINALLY has an entry on her blog!) have been bringing the goods with lots more to come! We are so excited to have them all back--it's our second to last show for the season ya know!! Hope to see you this Saturday (8am - 2pm)...
