Whirl-Wind **36 Hours** of ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! ShoPPinG WI & MN...

EARLY Wednesday Morning Frog Husband and I headed "Up-North"  for some ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! ShoPPing in Northern Wisconsin ~ with our final destination in the Minneapolis area...

  Unfortunately, as I suspected, INITIALLY it was a "slow-go" finding shabbies due to the LONG COLD WINTER we have had... Dealers have not been able to be out & about FINDING THE GOODS, let alone get into their storage sheds and barns...  I talked with many a store/shop owner - and that was the consensus among ALL of them!*!*!   Luckily for me ~ I ALWAYS have a FRESH S*T*A*S*H OF  SHABBIES tucked away!*!*!
  My Booth NEXT WEEKEND at The Washington Street Market will be "Over-Flowing" with Over-The-Top FaB FRESH STOCK of ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! F*I*N*D*S!*!*!
Visit My SideBar for DETAILS...


 Here I am in front of PICCADILLY PRAIRIE in Minneapolis
Lacey, the Owner is "The Sweetest"...
I ALWAYS Find a few "Select" ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! Items here!!!



Gathering of Friends ~ Minneapolis
B*E*S*T Of  S*H*O*W
OMG!*!*!  All I needed to do was Shop for SHaBBies in
Ms. Macs Antiques Booth
I BOUGHT SOME AWESOME PIECES HERE!*!*!
Such Creative Displays!*!*!





































































Although we had to cut our Minneapolis trip short due 
to an ICE STORM along with SNOW ~
 We did get home SAFE & I was quite happy with my newly
 acquired SHaBBy S*T*A*S*H...



Have A Great WeekEnd!*!*!
I'm off to the KANE COUNTY FLEA
