Another day, more junk....

Today was another really fun day at the Junk Bonanza. My sales were brisk, especially in the morning and then things slowed down in the afternoon. That was ok, because that gave me a chance to sit and chat with so many wonderful folks who stopped by.
Definitely the highlight of my day was meeting so many kind folks that had such kind things to say about my work. Many people would come into my booth, smile and say "I love your blog". That means the world to me. Thank you!! The lovely Allison (below), of My Cozy Home came for a visit. It was so fun to meet her in person. Kristin and her adorable son spent some time in the booth and talking about swaps and round robins and this amazing blogging community made me feel like we had been friends forever. Patty also came by and is an absolutely delightful person. She had so many fun ideas and thoughts about inspiration. It really made the whole show for me to be able to meet so many kindred crafty spirits. Love it!Since so many of you live too far to make it to this spectacular show, I thought I'd give you a nice dose of eye candy and inspiration with photos of the amazing junk that people are selling. Enjoy!

I'll be back for one more day of the festival and of course will be back here with more for you tomorrow!

Kari, I can't tell you how wonderful it was to meet you today. I was so excited, and so happy to be able to see you in person and get a chance to talk to you. You are such a sweet person, and I really, really enjoyed your wonderful booth. I immediately positioned the wonderful goodies I got in your booth - I just love them. Also, your dad is so adorable. He just couldn't have been sweeter. I'm so glad I was able to meet him too. I would love to get together sometime soon and do a bit of antiquing, or get together for coffee. I'll get my blog updated tomorrow with our pictures. Again, it was such a treat to meet you. I had the best day! Hope tomorrow goes well too.
