Eye candy…antique store tour

Hello everyone!  We just returned from our first outdoor show of the year…gosh it is hard to get started again!   This show is a street art festival in Delaware Ohio.  It seems to be a pretty consistent show for us, this is our third time taking part in it.  What is difficult, is that set up is on the first day of the show…because it takes us at least three hours to set up, we prefer setting up the day before.  But, that is not an option here..so we drove down Friday directly to our hotel and very early got up to unload and set up the booth. It takes so long because our booth is like a giant jigsaw puzzle and our pieces are of varying sizes.

Saturday was expected to be in the 60’s…no such luck…it stayed about 46 degrees with a feels like temp of 39….brrrrr!  I was frozen and spent the day literally shaking even though I had multiple coats on.  The crowd was down, but we still managed to do some business although it wasn’t normal sales.  Sunday was the polar opposite!!  Beautiful, warm, dry, and sunny with a very large crowd and good sales.

Delaware is also the home of Sandusky Street Antiques.  If you want to see the antiques you drool over online…visit this store.  Their website is www.sanduskystreetantiques.com and there is a link on the website to their Facebook page. They were kind enough to allow me to take photos to share with you.

So, the show ended ok…down a little because of the weather on Saturday…but ended with smiles as I got to meet two good Facebook/blogging friends.  Angie  (Lil Raggedy Angie) and her Princess Kaylee came to see us on Saturday and are just as sweet as they are online!  They surprised me with some handmade goodies…a sweet little prim doll, a fabulous pinkeep……my first!!….and Uncle Sam…he is just wonderful…and they all smell sooooo good!!   Thank you so much , Angie and Princess!  Smile 100_2780

I wish you could see the detailing on each piece…

 

  Sunday brought Cindy (Cynthia lee Designs) .  Cindy is a sweetheart…so warm and friendly.  She surprised me too with one of her beautiful embroidered towels she is known for, as well as a sweet embroidered hanging pillow.  Sooo much work…thank you so much, Cindy!    I am so lucky to have met Angie, Princess, and Cindy…not because of the sweet surprises…but because they are genuinely nice, good people.

So today I am a happy girl…although still tired.  We unloaded and while Al did all the errands necessary after a show, I have to admit I curled up on the loveseat and slept….a lot…10 hours last night and all afternoon!  I’m hoping to paint a bit tonight and get back into the swing of it tomorrow…  I hope all of you are happy and healthy and I hope I am back here a little quicker next time!  …….Jan

    What a fun trip Jan. The visits from friends and the gifts are so special. Beautiful antiques. You are right to assume drool;) Glad the show ended warmly. I really hate the cold. I would have been in tears probably. -Steph-
