The Thrill Of The Hunt

First off,
A HUGE thank you for all of your best wishes
for our 1st annual 
Vintage Marketplace Show.

Everyone who commented to
Roger and I at the door
wanted to say it was a great show,
and they are looking forward to coming back
next year.

After Amy and Bob ran the numbers...
they did make a bit of a profit...
so with that said;
there will be a 2nd annual show.
Instead of taking the money,
they will put it back into the account
and use it towards advertising for next year.
For those who do not know about advertising...
it is a huge expense.

We expected about 500 folks to come through,
but we had 315.
The weather was crappy.
It was pouring rain most of the day.
It finally stopped after the show.
Oh well.

With that said,
I want to show you a few of the items I purchased.

I so love cake crocks.

This one is a salt glaze version with a handle.

As soon as I spotted this adorable early teddy,
it was love at first sight.

I always say to my customer's to purchase
was speaks to them.
This teddy spoke to me right off.
He will soon have a meet and greet with the others.

I also found this flower inlay hat pin.
The bottom is shaped like a fan,
with a green gem.

It now resides with my others.
I am still on the hunt for an early
suffragette one.
{Purple, white and green colors}

I also bought some fun Santa mugs,
but forgot to take them out of the van.
Bob took the van to the store.
So I will show those when I do my display.

Hoping everyone will have a great Monday.
It will be a short week for me.
Have to take my mom to the eye doctor
on Tuesday for her annual check up.
She had a degenerative eye disease,
and they want to make sure it is not progressing.
Then of course  Thanksgiving is on Thursday.
Looking forward to being with family!

Thrill Of The Hunt Blessings To All!
