To Market and etc.......


Off to Market in Las Vegas tomorrow for five days...it's going to be quiet in Boise for a few days...


I've never been to this Market so it should be an interesting adventure.  I'm meeting up with my sister there which is an adventure in itself.   She has more energy than 489 two year olds.  Plus, she is crazy.  Really.  She will tell you that herself.

It's certainly an interesting building, isn't it?  If this is anything like past Markets, I'll probably be lost and turned around the entire time we're there.  Just so I find the showrooms that serve food and cocktails have great merchandise. I'll tell you all about it when I get back next week.

We've been getting new shipments in and keeping the store stocked.  It's been a good summer here at good goods.  Here's a quick look around:





And as soon as I get back, the preparations for our
7th Anniversary Sale & Celebration
will begin.  (August 10 & 11--more info to come)

 Another load of antiques will be arriving from Indiana..and I'm told these things will be in the trailer:
Cool old bed, huh?




 Do you love this desk?  I love this desk.

Old snowshoes-COMPLETE!




And an eight foot farm table.  Look at the width of those boards on top. 
Yum--this is a good one!

That's what's happening in my world over the next few weeks.  Fun!!!
Stop in and buy something while I'm gone.  Say "hi" to Melissa and make sure she's not getting in trouble.
Before I sign off, I'll share one of my favorite new tags with you:


Take care!!

I'm in tatters....shadoobie


I'm not sure I've ever been as shattered as Mick Jagger but I felt like I might have been close this past several weeks!  It's all this guys fault:

My brother in law, Greg, arrived from Indiana to bring the 21st century to good goods.
  We are officially computerized.  
See how hard he is working?? (actually, he's not.  He's playing around with a vintage Japanese toy I found that measures how "hot" you are.  Greg is easily distracted by precision equipment....)

Greg arrived via truck hauling a trailer stuffed with antiques and good old rusty junk packed by Pam, my sister. Pam is an over achiever in her own right and now the store was looking like this:





 And this:





Ok, so hours and hours of deligent work on my part...have brought the store back to a semblance of normal. (and we all know that "normal is is the eye of the beholder".  Let's not get carried away here!)  
You can now walk through the shop mostly unobstructed.
Stop in and try it for yourself!
(and I'll tell you a great story about Melissa and the "hot" meter!)

Stay cool,
XXOO
