Here we are at the opening. The show opens at 9am for the regular folk, well people who either don't want to pay the additional money or who just can't get up. We're usually the latter. Lazy. It was cool and overcast at first, but it turned into a nice day out. And not that crowded.
This is strictly for Holly. She told me about her darling chipmunks at the LakeHouse. She mentioned the cats might be taking a little too much interest in the local wildlife. Out here my friends, the chipmunks can fend for themselves.
We ran into Joanna and her pals a couple of rows into the show. She beat me to the punch on the blogging about it, I had no internet this morning!!! Here's Elizabeth getting a photo of Joanna talking about forgetting her camera.
And here's Joanna and Diana, one of her two shopping companions. They came prepared with Starbucks. I was a little envious of that, I should have scored a cup before entering but I like my hands free for grabbing up stuff. I'm greedy like that.
Ahh so what did I buy?
Sorry about the crappy photo. Every flat surface of my house is covered with stuff, so you have to be satisfied with my stained well used ironing board. Vintage Crepe Paper from Wendy Addison (I am so the name dropper), some really cool vintage state charms. I am totally going to start a collection of those for the states I've been too. (Wisconsin, Minnesota and Connecticut shown here, I have a lot of states to go.) I love charm bracelets. Some cool cherry shelf edging. I was hemming and hawing over it and Elizabeth managed to get the price down to $5. Even I can't resist that. Oh, and my little flower frog. I loved the size of this, I'm thinking pens, but more than likely I'll pile it up somewhere and not unearth it for months.
That's the story my little shoppers! How was your weekend?
