7 March - National Crown Roast of Pork Day

I just get a kick that we make a celebration out of everything!

Friday, 5 March was Multiple Personality Day. I think it was named for me (but just this one time). Today, Summer (Millesime Designs)and I took time out from running our shops to mark spaces and do all the last minute things for the First Annual Spring Flea Market, tomorrow at Sanford & Sons Antiques. This evening I've got to pull all the items I want to sell, clean them up, price them, list some of the items on Craigs and pack my car! Just writing this makes me tired all over again.

Up at 6am to be at Sanford's by 7. What was I thinking agreeing to work on this event?

The Flea Market was a great success!!! I sold a fair amount AND managed to keep most of my money. That's the secret you know, keep more $$$ than you buy!

I purchased a beautiful hand painted picture for $5, an embroidered piece I'll use for my dining room table ($5)and after looking over a light fixture I was thinking would work in my shop's office space - the vendor gave it to me, SWEET!! Just a bit of elbow grease and a trip to Home Depot (did you know they give a 10% discount to military folks?) for a lighting kit and it's ready to hang.
