a little preview...

Here are just a few of the items you will see this Saturday....

More pictures to come soon...I wanted more pictures posted and to have these up sooner but we lost power for about 45 minutes last night and when it came back on we did not have internet! So, its been a little slow getting this all around!

I have had a few girlies ask about jewelry and how much I will have Saturday. I did make about another 35-40 zippy pins but I have not made any more bottle cap or rosette necklaces, but there are still a few left over from my last show. Hopefully, by my midsummer sale there will be tons more jewelry!

Also ~ just a your trunk show for summer! Let me know if you are interested in hosting a show in your home and getting some awesome hostess benefits!

I had a panic attack last night.

I thought that I had lost EVERYTHING on my computer. I mean EVERYTHING. There was nothing on my screen except for my desktop photo of Jon Bon Jovi. There were no pictures, documents, music to open. NOTHING.

Then, my husband started to mess with it and he did some system recovery thing and when I woke up this morning everything was back. Then....I felt bad. I was so worried about losing all the pictures, documents, music etc that I felt kind of ridiculous. There are tons of people in Joplin that have lost everything, not just the contents of their computers. They have lost their homes and they have lost loved ones. How stupid of me to worry about a dumb computer! I am just going to continue to be thankful for everything that I do have and pray for those that need it!

With that in mind I am also not going to worry about the fact that, once again, my yard will be a river for Saturday's sale! You might have to park on the road and walk across the 'higher' part of the yard to get to the shed, but, at least you can get here. I am not going to worry about the fact that my weed eater is broken and I couldn't weed eat or the fact the my garden has not been put in yet and looks like a small jungle. I am just going to set up the sale and have a good time selling junk and meeting my customers. So, come enjoy it with me...and be thankful for what you have too! :)

Pictures coming soon!

Upcoming Sales & A Thank You

Thank you to everyone that braved the wild winds and came to Signs of Spring Friday and Saturday. It was another VERY successful sale!!! Once again, I do not have pictures since I, my mother, and my friend that were helping me were all too busy to get any taken!

There will be a few more sales this summer. There may even be on over Memorial Day weekend. I will decide for sure this week. It depends on how much more inventory I can acquire before then! IF there is a sale Memorial weekend it will be more 'just junk' and not as many handmade, upcycled items.

Also for upcoming sales......
Please do not shop the sale until the designated time. There were lots of people there Friday and they started shopping before the designated time of 5:00. Don't get me wrong ~ It was AWESOME to see the crowd coming toward my littel shed, but, this is a problem because of two reasons:
1) I was not ready, I really needed that last 15 minutes...I have had people tell me the past "Oh, its ok if you're not ready, we don't care, it all looks great. Just keep getting ready, don't worry about us." WELL, I DO worry. I spend a great deal of time getting ready for these sales and I want everything to be right. So, just humor me and wait until its time to open! :)
2) I had told other customers that they could not come early to shop. I do not feel that it is fair to them, especially when they find out that other customers were there early.

I have decided that in the future there will be some kind of signal to show that I am offically open. I don't have a real building with a door that locks/unlocks when I am open or closed, so I may rope off the area or have a big "open" sign that I bring out to the yard when I am ready. Someday...I hope to have a REAL building.... :)

Also, if can be avoided, please do not park in the back of the house...especially this time of year. We have tractors, trucks, etc etc coming in and out of there all the time. My husband ans his dad need all the room they can get back there. I usually have a sign directing people to park in the front yard, but I knew it would not stay put due to the wind!

Thank you for listening and again, thank you to all of you that attended. I will keep you posted as I decide about the Memorial sale!
