Weekend Fun

It was great to get away for a few days this weekend to spend some time with my mom, do a little shopping, and a lot of selling at the two day craft show.  I love being able to set up the day before and then walk right in with everything all ready to go the next day.  This was such a welcome change from setting up in a hurry at 3am in the dark.

There's no way I can fit all my jewelry on one six foot table, but these folding wood panels that I've had for ages sure make it easier.  They're a great way to take advantage of the vertical space and they really come in handy for holding my lights.  There was no one set up on the left side of my table, so I was able to fold out one of the panels and sneak in a little extra hanging space.

I controlled myself and only bought four plates of goodies.  At the beginning of the show they had nine of these large tables packed full of tempting home baked taste treats. I can't believe three of plates made it home without being devoured. 

Before setting up for the show on Thursday afternoon we made a quick trip over to
  The Antique Trove.
It's impossible to make it through this entire mall in only 30 minutes, but I was happy to finally use the gift certificate that had been burning a hole in my wallet for months.  The rusty old dust pan will be perfect for hanging on the wall and filling with flowers.  The architectural pieces and spring will be going in my repurposing pile for now.

This fabulous old fittings and tubing metal box is a full 18" deep.  It's definitely a keeper!

It won't take me long to fill the drawers and all these little compartments with bits and pieces of vintage goodies.
