There was quite the whirlwind around here, as there always is right before the sale. It takes a lot of work to create enough to stock our big events. We had a wonderful time, even though the heat was very oppressive! We appreciated each and every customer that took the time and were willing to wilt a bit while browsing our things. Not sure if we will choose July again for a sale though!
I finished several pieces that I didn't even have time to blog about. I thought I would tell you a bit about them now that things are moving a bit slower.
Last year when I did Junkstock I bought a table from a fellow vendor. She had stripped it down and refinished it. It's a lovely solid and very wide table with beautiful lines. This gal was not able to sand down past some of the wear and tear, but I never mind most of that once it is re-stained. It's the character and story of that piece, just like the lines and scars we all have. She did a beautiful job, so I left the top alone and only painted the legs and apron. Then I found some chairs that matched her style and viola`, she was ready to go. And she was looked over a lot! Sadly she didn't leave the barn, so she's still available if you are near Omaha, NE!!!
Let me know if you have the perfect spot for these! And have a great week with, thankfully, much more pleasant weather for us!
