Thanks For a Great Season at Elkhorn!

Forgot to take my camera to Elkhorn during setup on Saturday.  Forgot to take my camera to Elkhorn on Sunday.  Sheesh!  No pics..sorry.  I did make some altered spool photo holders just before heading out, and most of them sold. I believe most of them are headed for Japan.  (There was a  bit of a language barrier but we got the deal done.)  It was a wonderful 2011 season at Elkhorn and I want to thank each of you that shopped our booth.  YOU are the best and we appreciate you, old friends and new!
There was some amazin' stuff out on the grounds at Elkhorn yesterday and our buds that set up outside really had to fight the weather to sell. Pouring rain followed by sunshine, followed by sideways rain, followed by clouds, followed by showers, followed by clear skies, followed by downpours of Biblical proportions....(repeat)...we were happy to be inside where we only had to contend with one leak in the roof.   CHiPPy!-SHabbY! Jeanine, Margaret from Lady Libertys and Diane Passi had amazing stuff and I hope the buyers didn't let the weather deter them.  (I know there were other friends outside but I didn't get to see them.) 

There's never much time for me to shop at Elkhorn, but I did make one fun purchase from a neighboring dealer.

A bag of scroll-cut name pins.  These are old-timey...check out the names!
Aren't they the cutest?
They'll be appearing in my etsy shop soon.

In the meantime, thanks again Elkhorn shoppers!

(Our next scheduled show is Collectors Eye in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, October 23rd.)

 Yep, that's the name my Mom gave me...
(...and she's the only one allowed to call me that!)

I'm linking up with Linda over at Coastal Charm for Nifty Thrifty Tuesday . Check out all the fun posts over there!


  1. Love those name pins! That looks like a great show!

  2. Hi! You wouldn't happen to have Loretta and Ruth would you? Those were my grandma's names and I'd love to purchase them from you once you get them in your etsy shop!

  3. Hey Jan, thanks for the shout out! The weather sure was a challenge at Elkhorn for being an outdoor vendor but customers were still there buying up a storm. Those name tags are so sweet and how fun you will have sorting through them. If you find a Margaret, do let me know.

  4. I really like the spools. I'm with you one night I visited 20 blogs and no returns, I don't know how to copy and paste the buttons . I don't know what I do wrong.

  5. OH Janice Louise thanks for stopping by (sorrryyyy!) Your little treasures are adorable!
    Is there an Auntie Bliss in there anywhere???

  6. I love the spool photo holders. Too cute!! Thanks for visiting my blog...I'm following back! Can't wait to see what you find!!!

  7. Jan: It was good seeing you and Kathy at Elkhorn yesterday. Louise for a middle name - that is my middle name too (a family tradition). Let me know when you want to head up this way - it will be a fun outing.

  8. Gertie? How neat is that? I love the things you buy and the passion you have for it.

  9. Wow these are pretty cool! Sounds like you guys had a good time at Elkhorn. I'd love it if you'd stop by my blog and check out the giveaway I'm having for a Dremel Saw Max!
