Girlfriends Holiday Market is in one week and we're busy pricing, and tagging all our treasures.
I have so many to-do lists it's confusing! Must make one master list!
Today the sun is peeking out and it's been dry all morning so I'll focus on cutting greenery, fixing this and that and a bit of painting.
Even Santa is ready to get shined up for the show!
Our beloved little blog has been neglected this month and it's my fault! So sorry friends.
Shelly and I have been cruising around to all the great country shows in the area. We've been shopping and talking and passing out flyers for our sale.
Road trip adventure
Even JZ Knights' sale
Now, unbelievably, our show is next weekend!
We love all our returning vendors and welcome our wonderful new vendors with open arms. We're really looking forward to see how the show unfolds.
The charm of our market is the fact that we have 25 great vendors who really love what they sell, and care about their customers. It feels cozy and personal with music playing, laughter, yummy foods to eat, and treasures to be found. It's truly worth a visit because while you're supporting your favorite vendors you're bound to catch the holiday spirit too!
This was the most amazing homestead. We felt so lucky
to have the opportunity to pick through the
Old bead board cabinets and this sweet little desk with original mustard paint.
Vintage Christmas balls found in the old postal building.
As we packed up all our treasures.... I wondered about the things we had found....what is the story of each item? Who owned them and what happened to their family? Whose hands have touched these wonderful things? Who will treasure them next?
My name is Shelly, I am a wife and a mother of two boys, ages 11 and 14. I love all things vintage.. My good friend Sharon and I decided to start something new seven years ago....and that's how the Girlfriends Holiday Market got started......
and I'm Sharon, also married and a mom to four "kids". We have two boys and two girls and a new daughter-in-law who warms my heart when she calls me mom. The kids are 29, 27, 25, 23, and 19!! We also added two lab puppies, 3 months old.
With this crew I've learned the art of multi-tasking, putting on really good birthday parties, and most recently a wedding. Like Shelly, I love old stuff too. The Girlfriends Market is my most favorite event so far!
