Meet Bob and Carolee from Bainbridge Island, WA, who stopped to see me last week. They operate a unique home business called The Christmas House and every September they visit the Midwest in search of vintage collectibles to restock their business. I met Bob and Carolee at the Country Living Fair several years ago and they have stopped by here to say “hi” each fall since then. They travel in a pickup with a topper, a rack on top and they pull a pop-up trailer. They are a fun couple to know and if you live in their area, better check out The Christmas House.
Today I met my friend Jode at Marigold Days in Mantorville, MN, to shop at the flea market there in the park. It was a beautiful day to be outdoors and this puppy was my favorite “find”. If she had been for sale, she might have come home with me. There were so many dogs there with their owners – I petted as many as I could reach. Ha!
I am thrilled to report that we will start our “rug along” in January. When we finish Gypsy Wife, I will post a list of materials to have ready.
Tomorrow I’m going to start picking the pumpkins for Pumpkin Day next Saturday. We’ll have sewing room rummage, antiques and collectibles, finished quilts, Christmas, some furniture, and of course, pumpkins! Come Saturday September 19, 9 am – 3 pm. Also a rust colored leather couch and a school teachers desk, ice skates, sleds, snowshoes, Christmas greenery, and yard art! We’re still cleaning and sorting – come and haul it away for cheap!
