Twas a Busy Weekend! No Labor / Just Fun

Saturday started out with Leah, Connie and Gene and I attending and selling at a small flea market held at a little town's festival weekend.  I enjoyed my all day there on Saturday.  Visiting with a lot of neighbors that attended and new people that stopped there on their driving through.
Leah and I sold a lot of stamping items.  I'm getting rid of all of my stamping stuff, and Leah is down sizing!
I'd crocheted hats with big flowers on them, in sizes from adults to little ones.  Also winter head bands with flowers.  Sold several, and mostly for babies, except one customer bought all the headbands. I sold a bunch of paperback boods.  All of my Janet Evanovich series and most of the James Grisham one went too.  Decided I didn't need to keep them as  I don't read them again, and might as well get some money for them.
Gene and Connie sold some antique glassware and a few of their hand carvings.  They are so cute.

A lot of hours put into these little gnome houses!  
 Will do another post on Sunday's excursion!

I'm glad Connie spilled the beans about your birthday-enjoy your special day!

Good for you getting some cash for books and stamping supplies. Looks like it was a pretty weekend.

Oh, by reading the other comments I'm deducing that today is your birthday, Jo? Well, happiest of days to you and many, many more, too! :o)

Those hats you made are so cute. Love the purple and green ones. And those gnome houses are unbelievable! All that work and they are selling them for such a small amount! I would be interested in buying one - I'll send you an e-mail about it!

My daughter is going to sell her homemade jewelry at her first craft fair this next weekend. We helped her package last weekend.

I love getting in the spirit of the comunity ! We have, craft shows all crafts are made by the locals, Auctions,Penny sales, yard and barn sales, its wonderful to see people gather together for these events and to catch up with local friends and to make new friends from the people that stop to have a look. There is always home made foods, goodies and beverages for every one to nibble and sip on as they look around at all the great stuff ! I love the atmosphere of it all !
