Just a quick post to let you all know how things went at Kane County. Sorry, I hardly took any photos. Thanks to all who came out to see me. There were lots of SOLD tags.

Honestly, I could have sold these figural andirons a dozen times over. They were one of the first things to sell, so I don't have a shot of them in my booth. I took this pic before they were packed up.

A very happy customer will be using the cherub urn in her bathroom to hold towels.

A different customer purchased the marble top, and will also be using it in her bathroom, to hold makeup.

I came home with three pieces of furniture, and random small items. Very happy and grateful.

OK, I'm exhausted. I have lots of finds and redesigns to share this week. See ya soon.
