Garage Sale, Flea Market, Spring Cleaning, Back at Kane, etc.........

That's right, I have a lot going on as usual.  You know how much I like doing things at the last minute, right?



Well............Yesterday, hubby and I decided to have a garage sale this weekend.  Hey, if I can pull off an antique show with 6 hours of prep..............why not?  I live on a main street, with lots of traffic, and, I'm giving some of my local customers a heads up. I also threw a posting up online.




Yesterday, I did some clean up.  Today, all day, I'll be plowing through my stash, and figuring out what goes.  




I wish you all lived nearby.  SERIOUSLY.  This is my "Spring Cleaning".




Time to purge a bit, and power up for the shopping season ahead.  Plus, the weather forecast looks really good.

What doesn't go at the sale Saturday, we'll be taking to the flea market Sunday.  Of course, we'll be shopping as well.




Ahhhhhhh, making room for fresh stuff.










Gotta go gather up more stuff, listen to a little music,




and work, work, work.  Wish me luck.

***NOTE***
Next weekend, I'll be at the Kane County show in my usual spot.  This will be my first show there this year.  I was MIA in April, and May.  Too much going on.  I know some of you are regular customers, so, yes I'll be there.  I'm planning on bringing A LOT. Hubby is out shopping estate sales as I write this, and I have some new creations I'm working on.  The next 7 days are going to be VERY busy.

Oh yes, I'm having another giveaway tomorrow, as well.  Stay tuned.

***NOTE II***
If you have a question about my garage sale, please send me a regular email for details. If you're a No-Reply Commenter, I won't be able to answer your question. Thanks.
