Sale Over, I'm Exhausted, Not Many Photos

My two day sale is over, and, I'm happy, but, seriously exhausted.

I posted this photo of myself on FB just before the sale.  I was exhausted at the time.  However, I was told that I looked happy.  So, evidently, my tired face, and, my happy face are the same. LOL

Photos at the sale?  Well, I was so busy getting ready for the sale, and, so busy dealing with customers at the sale, that, I didn't get as many photos as I'd liked.

Customers came in cars,


and, trucks.

Quite a few customers left with piles.  Some came out both days.

I'm so very grateful for two successful days of selling.  However, again,

I wish I'd taken more photos.  Especially of my friends who came from 40 or more miles away.

A great big thank you to all who came out.

So, if you think my garage is empty, think again.  I'm pretty sure items breed in there when I'm not looking.  There's always more to create, and, acquire.

See ya soon.

My sale is this weekend, and, I've been so busy getting ready,  I simply have not had time to take a bunch of photos.

As a matter of fact, I'm still quite busy, the day before the sale.  I have boxes of stuff to sort through in the garage, and, I have to finish pricing everything.  I just love crunch time.

This is just a tiny drop of what I'll have.

I'm thrilled that some of the customers from my last show at 3 French Hens will be coming out to see me.  Of course, I'm always happy to see my regulars.  Being on a main street, I get lots of drive-by traffic as well.

My sale will be this Friday, and, Saturday, May 22, and, 23.  I'm in Lansing, IL.  If you're local, and, you'd like more info, just email me (villabarnes@comcast.net).

I'll try to take some pics at the sale.

Now, I need to get back to work.

In my last post, I mentioned I was planning a sale.

Well, after coming down from my last show, and, going through my garage, I've decided to have it as soon as possible.

The garage is scaring me.  I still have a ton to go through, but, I just love giving myself a narrow window to get things ready.

My sale will be next week, May 22nd, and, 23rd, from 8-3.

I had tons of fun with my sales last year.

Some of you have been to my sales.  For those of you who haven't, I live in Lansing, IL.  If you'd like more info, just send me an email (villabarnes@comcast.net).

I'll share more photos soon.

The first Three French Hens market of the year is over, and, I'm exhausted, but, happy.

I managed to get a few pics to share.

With the threat of a possible thunderstorm several days before, we were very grateful for no rain, and, a gentle breeze.

Happy customers.

My friend Rhonda.

Although I'm in recoup mode now, I'm also planning a big sale soon.  I'll keep you informed.

See ya soon.
