S*P*R*I*N*G was in-the-air @ GRAYSLAKE FLEA...

Here in the Midwest, "WEATHER" - is always a concern when selling at a Antique/Flea Event - even if it's mostly indoors...  This past weekend at the Flea - GRAYSLAKE, ILLINOIS, WE COULDN'T HAVE ASKED FOR BETTER WEATHER - **Just GoRgeOuS** - high 60's & Sunny!*!*!  Needless to say, this combo yielded a GREAT TURNOUT, & they were BUYING...  Lot's of ViNtaGE GARDEN was showcased in many a booth ~ including mine!!! 

 I really worked-it this past weekend,
not being able to load up the van till Friday Morning... 
  • Unloading at the Fairgrounds just hours later...
  • Setting up till 8 pm on Friday Night...
  • 2 days of SeLLiNg... 
  • Packing it up...
  • 6 Trips back & forth -OMG!*!*!

 From my personal collection...

 If you've ever been to one of my HOME SALES inside our GaRaGe, you've certainly seen my huge collection of some 300+++ ViNtaGe Watering Cans...  I've decided to start "CALLING-OUT" some of these ViNtaGE Beauties - Selling select ones at various SPRING/SUMMER GaRDeN Shows...
