creating with spirit & enthusiasm…often with great results

The Vintage Barn

It’s hard to rate a show because each one has it’s own merits that don’t compare to the next one.

I do have a favorite however.  It’s not the one that brings in the highest sales {although they are good} but I find that it’s the one that I enjoy the most.

It seems to fit the package that my mind has created of what a great show should be.

Rolane is the show’s creator, owner, promoter, etc…

When I was a baby charmer {I had just set out on creating my first soldered charms},

she fell in love with them…

she encouraged me…

she supported me…

and she continues to support and encourage me.

Therefore…I LOVE to encourage her and support her.  I wouldn’t have it any other way!

It is a one-day show that attracts some of the best vendors in our industry.

It also attracts the crowds!   {yay…we love the crowds!}

My favorite part though…it carries an amazing, homespun ambiance that seems to comfort heart and soul!

{I’ll miss you Trish & Sarah!…it won’t be the same}

Saturday is the Day!

Ya’ll come out now…

There is still a give-a-way going on…CLICK HERE!

Thank you for ALL of your sweet comments.  Wow!  They’ve been overwhelming.  I decided when I have my next bad day/week/month, all I need to do is host a give-a-way and sit and read your comments…it would give the perfect pick-me-up!!!

  4. Hey Elaine,
    Mom and I may just see you on Saturday! We are looking for more vendors for our show next year and I am trying to convince her that would be a great day of work 🙂 It may not take much convincing!
