Let's start off with the
Kind of sums up my life pretty well, I think. Needless, to say, there was eating to celebrate the day. Yay, eating! We went to my favorite restaurant, which is where we have our special occasion meals. We love it, and the food is incredible, but it's just a tad too pricey for regular eating.
On the way home, we found a junk pile on the curb, not far from the restaurant.
That window has a latch and hinges on it, so it must have swung open. Finding that pile means that junk set out for that neighborhood was last weekend, but I had other plans. (More on that later.)
The celebration is going well. So far, I have been to three different Peddlers Malls, finding interesting stuff along the way. I've also been to a non-Peddlers Mall vendor mall, with two more to go. We have so many of those dang things here.
Thanks for the well wishes last week! I love it when my friends celebrate with me!
Yard sale season is slowly petering out here, so getting some indoor shopping in is the way to go! If you take your time at a vendor mall, you can find much good stuff at yard sale prices. Most of the good finds are at (or are going) to the booth. I'll try to get some pics.
Speaking of the booth, these are interesting times. Indeed, they are. Last week was just awful, sales-wise. Every day was less than one half what I had been selling the month before. Just nerve-wracking. Saturday was a super day, which caught up most of the lag, but this week has not been setting any records. It looks like November is determined to work my nerves.
All of the Halloween is out and safely stashed away for next year. (Will someone please explain to me why almost none of the skulls sold this year?) The Christmas is going out bit by bit. I have some stuff to haul off Sorrow Mountain on Saturday, and that should wrap it up. I'll take some pics when it's all done.
Tomorrow, I'm going to get my Endcap Booth in order or die trying. If I never posts again, you'll know what happen. Of course, with my erratic posting schedule of late, you'll need to wait about three or so weeks before you make that call.
Can you believe that it's almost Thanksgiving????? I have so much to do before we leave to see Keith's mom. Ack!
I had the best time this weekend, hanging out with Lorraine's husband Chris at the Wizard World Louisville Convention. Technically, I was helping at his booth (for his company, Black Flame Creations), but really I was just hanging out having a good time. I'm not sure how much help I was, but I had a lot of fun and learned an awful lot about steam punk and the art of making steam punk attire and accessories. You need to go to the BF web site and check out Chris' work. He's very talented. It's like sci-fi/fantasy geek-oriented repurposing/upscaling! Thanks for letting me spend some time with you, Chris!

The weather is getting fall levels of cool here, and I'm loving it. It's so much fun to go for walks these days. I hope you all are experiencing that as well.
