...and they're off...the race is on...


Yesterday Barb and Brent from Sister's Garden rambled into the lil' burg of Palo...Barb's first time to the new shop...naturally she was amazed at our abilities to cram stuff into such a small space...like her ability to cram stuff into the back of their convertible...

Well, I'll be delivering the rest of the stuff today...Barb also visited the other new shop in town Griffin's Antiques and grabbed a few goodies in there too...who knew...

Then our intrepid dealers from Kentucky, back from their successful show at Brimfield are here to shop Iowa...eat your hearts out Lauri(Chippys) and Deb n Cat Daddy(Talkin' Trash) we're on a mission...so get outta the way...TOT comin' through...as Craig reloads the truck for the goodies she'll be draggin' in the next two days...eeeeeeee...are we havin' fun yet...

...as another day dawns in good ol' Ioway...the lost continent...

Brimfield takes me down memory lane. Camping in the back of a station wagon by the pond at Heart Of The Mart in Sept. 1987... A vintage bike dealer from Denver was camped next to us and let us ride his bikes through all the market fields - lots of fun and treasures to be had.

The garden looks lovely -- and that chair sitting atop the convertible cracks me up!

shheeez! and i thought it was bad to try to load the back end up of my full size truck with high topper. when the truck was first new and i didn't have the topper painted yet and on...i thought we looked like the Clampett's with things tied down, running down the roads like gypsies hawking our wares... but to load the convertible is tricky for sure.
