July's cookin' and so are we!

Wait till you see what we've been up to!
We've set up awnings and tables on the patio behind MY FRIENDS AND I and are busy filling it up. Everything out there will be on SALE and some items will be marked FREE if you make a purchase either from the patio or in the store. Everything is so cute it's hard to keep from shopping from each other!
The patio sale area isn't open to the public till Saturday BUT if you come in before that you can ask to see back there even while we're getting it set up. Just a little sneak preview for those of you who read our blog.
This is just the beginning of the SALE we plan on keeping the patio open until the first of September or longer if the weather permits AND you will want to keep checking back because we will be adding new SALE and FREE items all the time.
HEY ALL Have you emailed me and told me you want to win the cute book and jar of buttons pictures in the left side? WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR???

I'm Home

The only thing bad about the trip was the unusual weather in Portland 101 degrees!
There were about 300 booths set up out side (poor dealers!) and I shopped until I couldn't stand it any more then went into the 2 big air conditioned buildings. The picture below are some of the boxes we unloaded this morning into my hall entry way.
The shopping fun is over and now the work begins.
Getting it marked and ready for the shop will be a 2 or 3 day job, but I admit it's fun unloading and seeing the things I bought.
Keep checking back for more pictures.

I'm on a buying trip

LUCKY ME! We're in Oregon shopping every Antique Shop we can find on our way to the big Expo Antique show in Portland. We have to be in Portland by Friday morning for the start of the show. It really doesn't start until Sat. but you can buy a early buyers pass for $$$$ and go in when the dealers are setting up on Friday. It's a giant show, over 1000 booths!! The Friday pass gets us back in on Sat. which we will probably use. A 1000 booths full of Antiques are a lot to see in one day! I've already bought some really cute things to bring back for the shop. Will post when I get them in the store.
