Friday Fun at Trade Days


The sun was shining brightly and
a brisk cool breeze filled the air
as Terry and I began our day.
Giddy with excitement and giggles
brought out the lighter side of
shop owners as they shared
bits of their personal lives with us.
One lady asked if we had
been hittin' the sauce...
nope, we're just high on life.



We would gather little things here and there
filling our shopping bags,
then head for the car, unload, and
rebound for more.



Do you like my party hat?

I do, I do like that party hat!


O.K. this was a bit overwhelming.
We only checked out about
five tables. It would have taken
a week to go through all that stuff.

So here is most of what I brought home.


One little blue crocheted baby shoe
The gold colored heart actually came from
the booth with the tons of stuff.


I looked at this blue rimmed bowl and rustled with...
should I? $5 I don't know?
Then the man said,"That stack of dishes are $1 each."
SOLD! Hey lady, I just want you to know,
it does have a chip.


It was a great day,
wish you all could have come along!

Good Night
~Candy~

Oh WOW you did get some goodies! My favorite is the little crocheted dress. I know you guys had a blast. I had hoped to go to Canton this weekend but, got booked for work so guess I will put it off until next month. You should come up & go with us sometime. Maybe we could talk Pat into going too.
