After being on a WAITING list for a booth at a LOCAL Antique Market Place, Deb, Retha and I are getting a space on March 1st. YIPEE! A big, wonderful, close location for all three of us. Did I mention CLOSE??? No more, than say a 15 minute drive. We could actually go there everyday and take our wares. How exciting! This is what I have personally been wanting for a very long, long time. We all have such wonderful ideas to make this little venture successful! Part of the plan (so far) is wanting to push the fact that our goodies are mostly handmade by us, right here in NC! ( This is a fabulous selling point!) I can't wait to get started! Keep your fingers crossed for us!
The Market Place is one of the nicest and largest Malls ( over 45,000 sq. feet with over 150 vendors) that I have ever been in. Today, was my first visit there and I immediately fell in love with the place and found lots of treasures! And as I normally do, I had to bring a few things home with me. One thing is an old, little dough board that is absolutely precious. I've never seen one this small and I'm not sure where it will go, but I LOVED it. Another thing that I found was the little red (cardinal) bird, so grungy and prim, I just loved him too!! And lastly another little wood bowl to add to my collection.
Something else came home with me, but I'll save it for tomorrow. I kept telling Retha and Deb about all kinds of things that I loved, but needless to say they wouldn't buy me anything!! LOL!!
I must say that it has been a very busy day for me. Working on orders this morning, going out for supplies before lunch and then the call from Retha about the Booth space and spending part of the afternoon there. Then later on, to the post office and out to eat....I am pooped!! I had planned to watch TV tonight, but not sure if I'm even going to do that. Hubby will be home tomorrow, the kids and grandkids are coming by and Friday is sure to be just as busy!! Don't you just love it???
Until next time.
