Netting SHaBBies at NELLIE'S BARN SALE - This P*A*S*T Weekend...


~**PeRfeCtLy ChiPPy**~
and mostly white...
That's what I was looking for while
ShoPPing for SHaBBies
At NELLIE'S BARN SALE
This P*A*S*T Weekend...

Although I was Set-Up as a Dealer at this Event,
I found time to *QuiCkLy* do a go-through of
quite a few booths...

I was quite pleased with the *SHaBBieS* I netted!!!
I look for VINTAGE WHITE ITEMS WITH PaTiNa most of all...
Items with *GREAT FORM* or *LESS COMMONLY SEEN*
 are second on my list... 

Not Sure Yet ~ What I'll Keep, or what will be added to 
my ChiPPy-SHaBBy Show Selling Stock!  When you buy
from other Dealers, for the most part, - it's hard to re-sell 
because of the purchase price point... 

THaNk Y*O*U to All of Those who ShoPPed My
SHaBBies and Ann Campos for ALL her hard work Marketing
this FaLL Event!*!*!  

I had the BeSt-Time being able to
TALK WITH OTHER DEALERS from different Areas/States, 
Along with Other Dealer Friends I Rarely See...
