 & you are thinking about it still.

Those who placed orders, I'm getting started tonight!  

Expect an email in the next few days to confirm the sale

Country Living Sunday

What a gorgeous day it was... sunny and a perfect temperature.  
The last day of the show was great... sold lots of big items.  
We rearranged the booth and had a fresh take on the furniture.

Here are a few shots for today... and a quick blog post.


I am so grateful for Monรจque's help again this year, she brought so much energy to the booth.  Her work was the key caddies, words and candle holders among other things.  She nearly sold out of her burlap letters.  She's taking orders if anyone needs one.

I would love to see where you 
place the banners, owls & pillows in your homes -
really anything you bought and if you love how it looks, 
please send a photo and I will post them on the blog.  

If you loved something at the booth and are still thinking about it, 
send me an email it might still be available.

Thank you to everyone who shopped at Salmon Alley this weekend.  
This is a huge event and I love being a part of it.  

My next show is the Oakley Fancy Flea, Sept 27 10-4.  
Hope to see you there.

Country Living Day - Saturday

Well, Day Two was just as much fun as Day One... 
and the weather, while chilly & sometimes threatening was pretty nice.  

Lots of great shoppers today all braving the cold.
Here's a few shots of the booth today... 
we moved things around and freshened up the displays.  
Got a lot of lovely compliments on the booth too.  

Thank you all!

Trying a little fun with the camera & yes it was cold enough for mittens this morning.

George the Octopus needs to find a home... and someone to cuddle

This banner will be at a vineyard wedding...  sure to be a gorgeous wedding

I think he can't decide... a drink or a sandwich

Sort of sums up the day... Joy at Country Living!

  I sold so many of my vintage finds.  I am happy they have found a new home.  
This is the prettiest sewing machine ever


I will post more tomorrow... Hope to see you there.

Country Living Columbus - 2014

Another great day at Country Living's Columbus show at Ohio Village.  
You can't ask for a more perfect location for the show - 
everthing about the Village is ideal for the show.  
And Salmon Alley has the same booth location! 
 It is the best one too!


Here's the view when you enter the show... 
I'm the first booth you can come to and there are so many lovely items to view.  

Great vintage finds, wonderful handmade items:
 owls, bags, lampshade, pumpkins &wall hangings.  

I got to see many customers from last year... 
so exciting to hear how they used the banners and other items they purchased.  

The owls this year have so much personality. 


 And the Octavius the Octopus is stealing the show.  

More to follow after tomorrow's show.  
Got to finish a few more things before tomorrow.  

Come on out and see me, 
the weather will be fine and 
there's sure to be some great antiques and country goodies to be found.
