another wonderful day at the Vintage Barn....

This past Saturday we participated once again in the Vintage Barn Antique Show in Rathdrum, Idaho - what a marvelous show it is! Here is another glimpse into the fun we had. we again started with a word of prayer....
what a great way to begin!


Dennis created some fabulous new chalkboards, shelves and windows...









my soldered jewelry
















just love this old rake used to show off some of my designs...







Space #35 - our little corner of the Vintage Barn Show!
I received a call Friday evening from my friend Marilyn - she said a group of friends were coming out to the Vintage Barn the next day. You see, one of the gals had just retired, so they were going to celebrate by going to the antique show and then out to lunch. But knowing Marilyn, there had to be a fun surprise - so she asked me to participate in a scavenger hunt in honor of the retiree! She dropped by my house Friday night with a card that held a clue (to their next destination) and asked me to set aside a special crown. The next day she and the group of friends came to the show - Marla had been given a clue to look for a lot of music notes, so....into our booth she came - she looked at all my crowns, cones and jewelry and said to me, "do you happen to have something for Marla?" Well indeed I did, and so I handed her the card and the crown...





Now where was I????? Oh yes, there was a Farm Market...
Many of our friends from the July show were back....

Arlene from HeartRocksHome with her aprons and wonderful journals

Virginia from The Rusty Bird (with her wonderful nests)

Pam from Homestead Mercantile had her fabulous crowns in the Farmer's Market this time around


And we made some new friends too....
Here's Shari French with her Southern Charm...
That's Shari's mother, Georgiana Linde at 7 years old in the picture - a child of a cotton sharecropper, she never made it past the ninth grade. She died in childbirth when Shari was three. In Shari's own words, "How strange to have that just one generation up?" Shari makes the most beautiful jewelry and owns Jalapeno's Mexican restaurant with her husband in Sandpoint - we plan on visiting them soon!


Lastly, there were yummy baked goods there again made by a group of Mennonite women - I bought 2 pies and they were delicious!







Am I the only one who finds this interesting....???? (worlds colliding...)







That's it for the Vintage Barn for this year! Next stop...Remnants of the Past Antique Show - October 10 - California here I come!!!!
