A little ROAD trip

Last month I ran into someone at a local Flea Market that gave me a flyer and after a brief conversation she told me that she would be selling in Brazil, Indiana during the Rockville Covered Bridge Festival. I hadn't been to the Festival in years because it is CRAZY there. Lines and lines of cars, the streets become parking lots. I just like things a little less crowded than that. My husband is from Brazil and his sister still lives in the area and I mentioned it to her and she was game. Of course my Mom is up for almost anything so she got up at 6am and was at my house by 7am with a bag breakfast for us and some snacks. You can't take a road trip without snacks. We picked Sister in Law (Pam) up (middle) and off we go. We found the woman who didn't bring the cabinet cards... :( because it had rained the day before. Which I understand but I have done outdoor art fairs for years we all have those big Plastic Containers that do a pretty good job...oh well. Next time.

I did score some pretty good stuff. Lots of little storybook dolls, a blow form Santa that plugs in, a great doll head, rubber trucks, little bowling trophies and lots more. We even hit the thrift stores in town. But, we only scratched the surface. I think we only made 4 stops and we were miles away from the covered bridges where all the REAL action was.
Can you tell I took our picture.....That is my Mom, then Pam in the middle and well me. I did add some blush to us since it was an early morning. I will be working to list these goodies to my etsy site as soon as everything else is added which is an overwhelming amount.
