Shop Talk


Today Tarrah and I went to Gettysburg for the Heritage Markets Cash and Carry Wholesale Show. What fun we had! If I would have had more Cash then I would have had more to Carry out of the Show! I did find some really nice things for the Shop. I met some really nice people while waiting in line before the doors open. AND then I got to meet my good friend April, from Country Home Accents. I have talked with April many times on the phone but never had the privilege of meeting her..well today I did..what a nice person and her hubby isn't bad either, I just love her and her hubby, Tony!
April and Tony have been making awesome items for our Shop since we opened. And we love them!

While at the Show Tarrah and I met up with TERESA. I just love spending time with Teresa....she is one of the nicest persons you could ever meet and she is so talented. Teresa makes a lot of items for our Shop. The mice at the top of this post were made by Teresa. Aren't they cute? I love them and so do our customers! She has been with us from the start and she is never allowed to retired , and that goes for April and Tony, too! Then we met up with my friends Ree and Linda...what a nice day. The only thing wrong with the day was that it went too fast and we didn't have enough time to hang out with everyone. We all were too busy shopping!
One more highlight of my day was meeting SUSAN BURD. I felt like I was meeting a celebrity!
Susan was so nice and I love her talent. If only I could paint like she does.
Here are a few pictures of some of the goodies that I picked up today at the Show. The pictures aren't the best..sorry. I need to take everything out to the Shop and rearrange things. I should have waited to take the pictures then but I was too excited to show you some of the things I bought.




I love this black sheep...made by Country Home Accents! Great job April and Tony.

what nice things! You must have had such a good day. Especially love the little mice, it's funny, I had made some and used a zinc lid too, hers are cuter with the little pincushion. Hope you have lots of buyers.
