I also have been talking about getting this done and that done and never showed any updates. Haven't been good with the camera being handy lately. So I took a group shot of the items I took to the show. Even tossed in some of my recent pieces. Never know, if the price is right to someone, they will buy it. So I took them. I can always hook more!
Worried about the weather of Hurricane Irene, we managed to get there and start setting up with no rain to bother us in the morning. Linda picked me up before 5:30 a.m. We all gathered and pictched in and got the booths up rather quickly. Everyone just worked together.
Beth, playing with my camera ~ stinker....
Louise and Willa were the only two that dressed up for the day. It sure was humid at different times of the day. You could tell it was going to do something...
Louise working on a stocking she is making.
There was a vendor across from us who was making baskets. I was drawn to one of them, and thought throughout the day that I might be taking it home. All the other girls kept telling me to buy it. I felt so pressured..... Yeah right LOL. By the end of the day, it was still there and it came home with me :)
It was our first time at this show, and with the expected weather, it wasn't too bad. This is only the second year for Landis Valley to do this show and I think they all had a good turn out. We each sold something, so that was nice. I thought it went smoothly. I believe it was after 2:00 that the skies opened up, down came the heavy rains. We all moved quickly to get our things in our tubs and boxes. I felt like I was in a game of twister. I was bending, someone was on top. At one point I said left hand green, right foot yellow, but I don't think anyone heard me LOL. How quickly we got it all put away. And Grace was given when it was time to take it all to our cars. The downpour stopped and was just a very light drizzle.
Louise suggested we all go get a sundae at the nearby McDonalds, so we did that. All muddy and soaked, we walked in lol. It was nice to just sit and talk about the day and how things went. A great day spent with Great friends. I'm looking forward to "our" show in just a couple short weeks at Colonial Day. I have time to make some more items between now and then. Praying for a dry day at that show!
On the way home yesterday, Linda and I stopped at the Black Rose (antique store) and looked around. Even stopped at the Pizza Hut near my house for some boneless chicken wings to end the day. Needless to say, I was out like a light by 9:00 last night. Don't even remember closing my eyes lol.
Today is a day of cleaning for me. Everything has been so neglected, I'm trying to figure out where I will start. I think I'll have one more cup of coffee and then plan it out. If not, I will take the mess from one room, enter another and start cleaning that one, and then will be back and forth. Must stay focused lol!
Prayers are lifted for all who are getting the brunt of this storm. Hope you are all safe and doing well.
