Getting up at 3:00 a.m. that morning was a bit tough, but I managed. Linda picked me up at 5:30 and off we went. We got there by 7:00 and were told where to set up. Right next to Heavens to Betsy :). Do you know how hard it is not to stop and look??? Joanne met us there and I was so thankful for her help. I have a pinched nerve in my back and it was not easy moving. Before you knew it we had the booth all together. Joanne hung the rugs hooked by Nancee. Linda was selling Anne Nichols patterns that day. Along with the patterns, I think she had a lilttle bit of everything from the shop there!
I'm a bit disappointed that I don't have many pictures. While going through them, I was so sad to see that I caught people with their eyes closed, blurred, etc. I didn't have much time to take the pictures! Really wish I had some of Linda in her booth! When I tell you that Linda was busy, it's an understatement. When those doors opened, it wasn't long until people put their things down at a table in the other room, and then were out in a hurry to do some shopping. I think all the vendors did well that day. I'm so thrilled for Linda and the success she had for her first time there.
I did get a snap of Nancee with her rugs. She deserves a round of applause for getting these hooked up so fast. I'm happy Linda had them there. It really helped with the sales!
I was only away from the booth for a little bit. I did take more pictures of the room, but they did not come out, nor did the ones with people that I knew :(. But you can see that the room was filled.
They also had a rug show that I tried to quickly snap shots of. My mistake, because some did not come out. But at least I got some. So enjoy!
We had a blast that day. How nice to see so many of you that I really only get to see at these functions. I think that is why I look forward to it each year. I can't wait till the Fall at Brandywine :). Linda will be vending at that one too. I also want to Joanne and Nancee for helping with loading Linda's car back up after it was all over. My back thanks you!!!
One picture that did come out was of a hooker who just didn't want to let go of her wool money to buy a new pair of shoes ... LOL. This was Becky (aka.. tootles), and her poor shoes were falling apart. We were giving her a good ribbing about not wanting to give up her spending money. I have a feeling that they were in the garbage when she got home.
If you want to see more of the Woolwrights hook in, you can visit it HERE They did a great job at covering it!
I've been trying to baby my back, and this morning was the first time I got up in the morning and I didn't almost fall over. That's a good sign! I've been icing it and taking some medicine for the pain. Little by little it will get better.. Rest is the best thing for it right now.
Hoping you are all having a beautiful week. The weather here has been gorgeous!
