Am I Worn Out From Learning New Skills or What??

I was posting up a storm trying to get those pictures to take and I feel like once I accomplished that the wind went out of my sails for a day or two. Here I am again though. Technical things are not my strength and I thought that I would never get the picture episode figured out and I know if I don't use it I won't remember how I did it. Tomorrow or Thursday I plan to head over to my booths in Just Plain Country in Walnut Cove, NC and take some pictures to show you what is going on there. It is a huge old hardware store and there are over 150 of us vendors showing off our "stuff" on the main floor and in the basement. It is such a hodge podge of treasures that I find myself working on my booths as quickly as I can so that I can go shopping. No one loves antiques and primitives more than the people who sell them. I figured out a long time ago that antique malls would probably never survive if we didn't buy from and support each other. I haven't met 90% of the vendors there. We are apt to show up on different days to stock and so we just don't meet. There are 4 or 5 booths that I love to check out....their tastes are like mine and I love to see what they are willing to part with. I have lots of old quilts, crocheted doilies, old needlepoint (already matted and framed), old glassware, dolls, dough bowls, Boyd bears, Longaberger baskets, oil paintings and prints, crates and crocks (I love old, old crocks), handmade primitives. You get the idea, a little of everything imaginable. I try to price things as reasonable as can be because I love a bargain and I figure everyone else does. I hope I have whetted your appetite and that that you'll come back to see the pictures and leave me a comment or two about what you really like or are hunting for.

  1. I'm looking forward to seeing what just plain country looks like in Walnut Cove. I think your booths are beautiful and by the way if anyone is looking for some unusual resin Boyd's bears, I may be able to help! Keep up the good work. I think your blog is great. What would you say is the most unusual piece you've ever found/sold? (just wondering...) Learning new skills IS tiring, but you're doing great.
