Flea Market

Big Wheels Keep on Turning...




Goodness gracious...barely a small portion of the goodies have started arriving. And I must say, the few folks that have been dropping things off have been saving their BEST especially for our show. There is LOTS going on at Barn House and The Party has not even started! This Flea Market is turning into something bigger and better than we could have imagined...it is really starting to feel less like a "show" and more like a Family Reunion (and I have never even been to a family reunion)...which is probably why it's been choking me up all day thinking about what is happening so far and what is to come. There is something really special in the works out here this week! We feel so incredibly lucky to have your encouragement AND the friendship, inspiration and support from our friends/family who will be a huge part of this experience.

More to come...we have already had someone (with red hair) "rushed" to the hospital to get 4 stitches...AND I heard Natalie say a curse word for the first time EVER (shocking!). I am waaaay behind on my BH Pre-Show Crash Diet, not to mention way behind on my Pre-Show Acne Treatment, not to mention we haven't a finished the roof to our new structure, not to mentioned we haven't practiced our Proud Mary routine (or found back-up singers/dancers)...AND, Joe is so hopped up on a new sugar-free Energy Drink he is being more "difficult" than usual! ;o) Y'all know there's gonna be good stories!!

Here we go...wish us luck...

It looks like you are getting ready for another fantastic event. I wish I could make it down this weekend. I'm sending Timi to check it out for me.
Maybe you can make it up to Snohomish for our Hot Blogust Nights blog party on August 8th in Snohomish.
Can't wait to see pictures from your event.

Wish I could get out there to your show--it looks like it will be FUN. I first learned about you from the Farm Chicks site-wow! In this post I love the bicycle on the "roof" and the file drawers and cubbies in your last picture. Please post after pictures for all of us.

I just wanted to drop in and leave a line. I'm very excited about moving to Washington because in OR and WA there are so many flea markets and shows, it's a bit overwhelming in a great way. Is this something you guys do every year? Looks like alot of fun. <3

It does feel like a good old fashioned reunion, but without all the fighting and screaming kids! Much better!
