I'm off flea marketing!


Tomorrow, I am driving to Illinois to return my beautiful granddaughter to her sweet Mama. I have had the pleasure of spending the entire summer with Hailey, and can't believe our visit is coming to an end! Where in the world did the time go? I wish the other 10 months that she isn't with us, would go a bit quicker! It seems like an eternity until she returns each June.
I can and do, take the route of looking on the bright side each summers end... When I return Hailey, I'm able to visit my children, grandchildren, my sweet sister's, my mother, friends, aunt and cousins!

I will be cutting this trip short though, because I (and I'm squealing, you just can't hear me!!) am going to a "larger than huge... larger that gigantic... more like a
"GI-NORMOUS" Flea Market in Ohio on my way home!!! I will be dancing through the buildings and between the tables as I scour for as many treasures as I can find! I have so many items I'm looking for, vintage millinery roses, velvet roses, brooches, furniture, frames, umbrellas, dishes, rugs, vintage linens, etc!! I can't help but squeal whenever I imagine myself walking through the vendors!
I will have the pleasure of my husbands company when visiting this flea market again in September. He loves the markets as much as I do, plus, it will help to have extra hands when I manage to find that special something, and don't have the energy to walk back to the van!
I will attempt to list some new items in my eBay store this evening, I'm so far behind! But have 10 months to work hard while my sweet Hailey is in Illinois, that should help the time pass!

How exciting (and sad to leave your grandbaby). Hope you found lots of goodies and had time to give hugs to all your relatives in IL. Have you been to The Pec Thing? It's coming up in September at the Winnebago County Fairgrounds. You'd love that one! Blessings... Polly

Michelle,
How wonderful to get to spend the entire summer with your granddaughter! I am so close with my grandma and some of my very, very best memories are the times I spent with her at her home. Making crafts, baking and working in the garden! On what memories. I just spent the day with her yesterday and had the best time! Your granddaughter will have the best memories of spending time with you! Their isnt anything like a grandmother and granddaughter relationship! I am so happy that you are both so close! That relationship is so important!

Your items are gorgeous that you are listing on eBay! My goodness! I will be checking those out for sure!

Amy
