Sale Day Report

I’m actually writing this just after getting home and it’s hard to communicate just how tired I am. It was a great day at the sale and a fine day as far as sales went. I’m still waiting for that sale that will blow me away and I think this one has that potential. So many nice comments from gals and I definitely sold a lot of soldered charms. It’s fun to see how each sale that I participate in impacts the special orders I receive throughout the year. It will be so much easier to place and receive those orders through my website. I know that I mentioned in the last post that Rolane does an incredible job of organizing and operating this but she does it with a great amount of help and support from her husband, Dean. It’s great to see how this team works together.

Watch for a nice spread in the next Country Living magazine (Sept. issue) spotlighting this antique sale. That should really impact the attendance at the next sale which will be on September 6th. There is so much great stuff at this sale. I just want to buy! buy! buy! But I tried to remember the “stay in your booth” thought. Here are some pics from the day.

Miss Charming!

…and the ever-so-charming helpers!


the Whimsical Junque Masters! (actual name “Wild Whimsy”)

…and their JUNQUE – way to mop it up girls!

…and my sweet girl adding to her umbrella collection ~ “it was only $3”
