CRaZy Weather - This Past Weekend, Northwind Perennial Farm's 17th Annual Garden Show...

This year's Dealers brought some FaB ViNtaGe Finds to the 
Northwind Perennial Farm Show - just outside of Lake Geneva Wisconsin!*!*!  The First 2-Hours of FRIDAY'S SHOW brought a steady buying crowd ~ YES!!!
THEN THE TORRENTIAL RAINS CAME ~ OMG!*!*!
IT WAS *BEYOND* SCARY!!!
After the major part of Friday's Storm passed, shoppers trickled in the rest of the day...

S*A*T*U*R*D*A*Y MORNING ~ A MANGLED MESS...
Myself, - along with a few others, arrived to find our POP-UP TENT Frames Damaged beyond repair...  Another round of torrential rains hit during the night - "pooling up" way too much water on the tent, causing it to cave...  Thank YOU Fellow Dealers for all your help getting me up and selling again!!!
  The rest of Saturday stayed DRY & the ShoPPers came...





Architectural Pillar Prop Base...
"Butterfly" Candle Snuffer...








First Item to Sell...
Over The Top FaB Garden Windmill!*!*!
I stabilized/preserved it's "chippy paint patina"
with a couple coats of a clear urethane sealer...
Note:  For an even more durable sealer - especially on wood pieces outdoors,
  "Spar Varnish" works extremely well...

  1. Your booth looked wonderful! We couldn't stop to say "hi" since the torrential rains had just started. I'm glad that we had at least a half hour to shop and look around. Hopefully we'll see you at Elkhorn and that it is sunny.
