Monticello Fall sale

Marv and I left early and headed for the Monticello in Portland to completely redo our booth and get it ready for the fall sale. Midway through I wasn't sure I would be done by closing but low and behold it all came together in the end and I felt pretty good about how much I got crammed in. What great people we have had the privilege of meeting through the Monticello. Today we saw,Lisa and Issabelle, Joe and Sue and Sister in law Debbie and Jon.

Yeah!! we survived Coburg

This weekend was The Coburg antique show. It is a huge event and we take it quite seriously as it is usually a really great show for us. This year we were not disappointed. The weather was excellent and my great friend Sue, braved the middle of the night setup, and came along to help.Sue arrived promptly at 3:15 a.m. and off we went to setup.h 11 year old Emma in tow, who insisted on helping this year. The weather was agreeable and we had an excellent show. We had a constant flow of people and we were so glad to have extra help. Thanks Sue!!

vintage sewing trims

Today we spent the day preparing loads of fun stuff for our Coburg sale. We are at the point of trying to remember whats on our list to remember? Anyway we are at the crazy stage before a big sale, when our kids run the other direction,thinking they will have to tie on tags, tea dye something or print out tags on the computer. All things that I run short of time with and beg their help. Actually I think they secretly like the stressful stage when I start bartering with them or as some call it bribing.
