This year was HOT..HOT.. HOT.. temps reached nearly 100 degrees at we set up for the show this year. I am so thankful for the help I had from two wonderful Friends, Leslie and Shannon and my Husband, Tim.. I could not have done it without them and their endless encouragement as we packed the u-haul ( that was Shannon and I), set up both tents, unloaded the u-haul and van, and then began to set up all the displays.. Pictures to follow..
But as usual, it all came together into a beautiful displays of lovely VINTAGE treasures..
Friday the slowest of the three days but for the ones that braved it, they all seemed to be having fun and finding some great stuff..
It was on Friday, that I met Doug, he had seen some feed sacks in the basket i had out front and if I had wondered if I had any ARBUCKLE’s coffee sacks, I was pretty sure I did not but told him to take a look.. then he spotted some smaller sacks.. ( they were like new and I had just gotten them a week or so before at a Estate sale).. and to his surprise and JOY.. there was an Arbuckle’s PURE sugar sack.. which he told me was very rare to find is such great condition!! He then went on to tell me that he was a chuckwagon cook and traveled around the area.. and that Arbuckle’s coffee was COYBOYS coffee.. he also told me to look for him at the NY State Fair at the Carriage Museum , that he would be there and he would have this sack on display.. how awesome I felt that he had found a sought after treasure in my booth,, and he was thrilled with it! ….so the moral of this story is you can never stop hunting ,, for something you’re looking for could be in that next booth..
Sunday was the perfect day to be outside and go treasure hunting.. it was sunny with blue skies and temps in the mid seventies!! My friend, Sandi, came to the show with a huge bouquet of hydrangeas from her garden, which beautified my booth.
It was great to see so many familiar faces and meet so many others who also share the love of Treasure hunting. The day only got better when my friends came out in full force to help pack up and reload the u haul.. we did it in record time .. A huge thank you to Lois and Jack, Shannon and Leslie.. there was even time to sit outside and enjoy a cocktail before heading home..
I am now in Maine with the cutest little girl in the world.. yesterday we went blueberry picking at a nearby organic farm and we just finished delicious blueberry pancakes my son made for us.. O.. LIFE IS GOOD!
