Great Show, Next Event, & Spring Surprise

Once again, you all came out and we had a GRRReat 3 Friends Sale. THANK YOU !  Lots of new faces, many old friends and even my 97-year-old uncle stopped by to see what all the fuss was about!  He said, "If I hadn't seen it with my own eyes, I would have never believed it!"  His biggest question was, "How did all these people know to come here?"  Well, that is the hardest part of hosting an event - getting the word out.  Many postcards, many posts on Facebook and blogs, listings on on-line calendars, emails, so on and so on.  Many thanks to the other 2 Friends, Diane and Sarah.  They rocked social networking.  My favorite was someone who had been shopping at Ace Hardware and was told by another shopper that they HAD to come out and see it.  Whoever you were, thank you.

So now that the totes are empty and there is space in the  warehouse  garage; the hunt begins.  Time to hit the streets and gather fresh finds.  My next event is .... Plucky Maidens Junk Fest!  April 27 & 28th at the Columbia Conference Center in Portland.  This is a new event for me and I will be next to Molly Mo's and Roost REimagined.  Come check it out!

A couple weeks ago I was choosing branches from the back yard to use in the house for the Friends Sale.  From under an over-grown fern I saw something yellow peeking out.  What a wonderful spring surprise, it was a planter that Elf Patty had given me at last year's Friends Sale.  I was so pleased to re-discover it and happy to have a little spring for my patio table.  It even survived the snow this week - all 6 inches of it!

And, before I forget - please check the info to the left for a line-up of the events I will be participating in this year.  Thank you and see you again soon!
