to market we will go...

Yesterday my friend and I went to the Minneapolis gift market, Here are a few pictures of some of the things we saw...wow. that is blue!
This is a fun showroom with lots of antique pieces used for display...
we found these great reproduction thermometers! Lynn ordered a lot! this will be my first Christmas in years that I will not be selling retail...so this market was kind of bittersweet. I miss this time of year and all the fun buying but then again it could be very stressful trying to decide what to purchase and will they buy it! It was fun to look. We had our usual two hour lunch at our favorite spot....It was a good day!

Just think though....this Christmas you won't have to work long crazy retail hours and will be able to really get your own Christmas shopping done!

hello, thanks for stopping by. I've never been to the Gold Rush show. Is is a good one? Hope you have fun there. Maybe you could do a post of it so that I can see what cool things they have :) Take care!

Thanks for the sneak peak-maybe I'll see some of these goodies this fall. I'm catching up on everyone, took a little time of for the summer. Have a good day.

I like the smiling faces of the man-in-the-moon! And, with blue not being a "usual" color one thinks of for Christmas, it was a pleasent surprise!
