This past weekend was a BIG flea market sale at The Barn House Boys. My girlfriend and I headed out for some junkin! You can read my full post on my personal blog.
I thought I would look up some of the vendors and low and behold, they do have blogs! Yipee!
Just so you know………I WAS THERE…….RIGHT THERE! I had that burlap pillow in my junk lovin hands……I was going to buy it….I was…….I was so close, then I decided it was too scratchy for the room I wanted to use it in…….Burlap how I love thee, but why so scratchy?Bella was a cute cute vendor! I loved looking through her things. I really wanted that tool bin drawer looking thing below……And I also had one of these burlap runners in my junk lovin hands………but as cute as it is……the ruffle was too big for me. I’m now regretting it. I love it.What I did end up buying was a piece of Ironstone…….my new obsession. I bought one of her larger plates and I almost bought that little one too…..dang it! More regrets.
In fact when I was waiting to pay, her husband came up behind me and said “I’ll take that”…….since he didn’t have on a cute little dress or apron that is so popular with the vendors, I gave him the stink eye that told him I wasn’t falling for his con job……..until “bella” told me he was with her. Silly me.
I would have LOVED to have seen this piece below……..oh yumm yumm yum!You can tell she’s a true NW gal…….. We had SO much fun at the sale. If it weren’t for my friend Debi (our dog’s breeder), I wouldn’t have realized that the gal taking our money to get in was Heather Bullard. Duh! And then walking through one of the booths, she pointed out that I had featured the vendor as well…….we were walking through Tracy’s booth. A past feature. Notes from a Cottage Industry. So much fun! She lives in Camas now! That’s where I live!!! Maybe she’ll come over and help me with my living room? Had it not been for my friend, I wouldn’t have known what junkin legends I was walking amongst.
And now Bella……she’s in my neck of the woods too. Oh the future’s looking bright!
Head on over…..you know the drill………but first let me know you stopped by and I’ll enter you for my monthly Lisa Leonard giveaway.
