Soooo MiSSiNg Selling... Buying... Setting Up AT-THE-FLEA...


~* LIFE'S TWISTS & TURNS *~


Only days away from officially listing
 Our Home For Sale
- My ~*Sweet Frog Husband*~
 SHOCKINGLY… UNEXPECTEDLY…
  Had Open Heart Bi-Pass surgery,
as a result of severely failing a Treadmill Stress Test!

 To look at him - he was in such GREAT shape...   Home for just a few days now - he is doing well - but it’s a SLOW RECOVERY process with lots of rehab appointments…   My focus RIGHT NOW - is taking care of him during this recovery period, and needless to say - we’ll be staying in our home a bit longer now till life gets back to normal…

  I still am planning to set up at ELKHORN FLEA on AUGUST 12th, -even if just by myself.   I am Sooooo Missing Buying, Selling,  & Setting Up Displays at ALL these Summer Events!!!  ~**LiFe HaPPeNs**~
  I’ll be back at it all ~ in due time!

ToDay's Event - CANCELLED - *STuFF with STyLe*





WHAT IS UP WITH THIS WEATHER???
 "The WHiTe KnUcKLe Drive" 

Loaded & Ready ~ as planned, I began my early morning trek to the show around 3:10 am...  About 20 minutes into the drive - in downtown Milwaukee - THE WHITE KNUCKLE DRIVE BEGAN!!!  Pitch Dark... Pouring Rain/Lightening... Construction Zones...  Very Poor Visibility...   
About an Hour into the drive - I got the TeXt that Today's Show -  "Stuff with Style" was being CANCELLED - due to rain/lightening ...  Although the news was "bittersweet" - I'd rather be safe along with all the other Dealers!!!  Turning around the van ~ felt like I was almost dreaming the whole thing!!!
