While living in Fort Worth, I belonged to a group of ladies who did home shows to sell their artsy/craftsy wares. We got together about 4-5 times a year for our sale.
Then after the show, we would TRADE STUFF! Oh my gosh, that was more fun than the 'selling of the stuff!!!!'
I haven't done that since moving to Louisiana....just haven't found a group...yet....but still hoping to. However, I was lucky enough to do a little trading for goodies this year.
I have some blogville friends who wanted to trade for some of my crocheted huggers for themselves and as gifts.
I was happy to oblige and in return, I got some lovelies myself.
First, I got this gorgeous necklace.
It was made by Lori....she has an etsy shop. You ought to go visit her store sometime.
Then, Jenny sent me a bountiful of things.
She owns an antique store and just spoiled me!
Check out this cute vintage toadstool wreath!!!! (yes, I SQUEALED!)
some patterns, vintage rickrack, ribbon, buttons, chocolate (which the kids snatched up...)
here is a close up of the cute cupcake toppers and teensy ornaments!
look at this adorable poinsettia basket...can you believe it is plastic?!
and this paper house....like a Putz! I love these houses...I think I sense a new collection coming on.....yikes!
To top it all off, this gorgeous hostess apron.......just lovely!
Thank you ladies.....we can trade 'stuff' ANYTIME!
