When I saw these three beds all lined up in a row The first thing that came to my mind was "who's been sleeping in my bed".As you can see there is much more, there are three floors full of antiques,more than enough to keep Baby Bear busy and lots of places for Goldilocks to hide. If your in the mood for a fiesta,come upstairs and take a look at this display the only thing missing are the Nachos,the Gauc and the margs.This is right across from my booth.Turn around and look right behind you and you should see this wall of pictures, this is our booth,we try to have something for everyone. If you like what you see come see us at the What Cheer Flea Market. April 29-May 1 We have been doing this show for about 9 yrs. and still have more fun than a couple old people should have.It can be pretty ruff at times rain, snow, mud, wind,heat but when it's all said and done we had fun. If your dolls are looking a bit tired and need a place to have a quiet drink and a little rest. My husband was lucky enough to be the one who came home from the auction with this beauty. The picture doesn"t show it real good , but it is a childs ice cream set.Can't you see a couple of little girls having a Tea Party,wearing big hats, long gloves and mommys pearls.

Never let it be said that I am not willing to try new things and not to give up even if I am ready to throw this computer in the street. I have wasted all day trying to get my playlist on the blog, I know it can be done other people have done it ,but do you think I can HA I know just enough about this stuff to make myself crazy. So much for teach an old dog new tricks, just give her a nice juicy bone & a soft chair and she'll be fine and dandy

For months now we have been buying,marking,and boxing .And now spring is really here,it's time to finish loading the trailer and haul it on down the road to What Cheer. Our first Flea Market of the year I can hardly wait.Make no mistake it is a lot of work, but we have fun once it is set up. We go down on Wensday the 28th ,set up the tent on Thursday. Then bring out all the things we think the customers will be looking for and I hope a few surprises.Going to the Collectors Eye this week end got me real fired up to go.There were so many unusal things to see ,things that I have not seen at a show before.There was even a booth with nothing but chocolate molds ,lots of Santas and bunnies & even a PIG. While I was at the show my other half was at a sale in Newhall. I ask him not to stay to long as we had lots of work to do. We still had to go through the stuff we bought on Sat. which won't stay here very long, most of the goodies are headed for homes else where.We were lucky enough to get some tramp art hankie boxes,and some childerns books in great shape from 1939 & 1940. Beside getting ready for What Cheer,we need to take things to the stores we are in.We may or may not get it all done before we leave. This is going to be a busy spring,we are planning on setting up at the Summer Garden Party& Flea Market. June 4-5 at Annies Treasures in Cascade.Then would like to try to get into The Old Lincoln Highway show in Mt.Vernon on the 4th of July. And I must not forget the Traveling Bettys Occasional Sale in June date to be announced, be sure to look for this one it will be a real hoot ,6 former store owners, out to have a real good time,and put on a funtastic sale. This is the first one ever so keep your fingers crossed all goes well. Watch for more info as it becomes available. I hope to get some pictures on soon
