Happy Hallow-'Ristmas? Plus Midland, Burlington Update AND Chicago Weekend Shopping Opportunities

I've been feeling kind of outta sync the last few weeks, working on Christmas just as the first leaves were falling outside. Don't get me wrong, I love the holidays, and Christmas handmades are some of my favorite things to create, but I am feeling a little creatively crowded!

Every year, I say that I am going to get started earlier, and this year I actually did! But it was really tricky buckling down and getting things done. Still have lots to do over the next few weeks, so stay tuned for a peek at what we'll be debuting in November!

Now, this is more like it! Normally I try not to post a lot about family stuff on the business' blog, but my son was so proud of his pumpkin that he asked me to share it:

Personally, I was a little worried about the deep-seated pyschological implications of his creation...'til he said it was a design he saw on-line! But, kudos, Jack, on the execution. Puts us right back on the correct seasonal track.

Midland/Burlington Update

Had a busy weekend at Midland and Burlington. The weather was great both days, but windy and running the gamut from mittens-in-the-morning to shorts-by-afternoon. Good crowds, too. A big THANK YOU to everyone for coming out -- especially our pal, Heather, who brought some of her wonderful jewelry to sell and hung out for the day. Can't believe the tent will be packed away now 'til April! But here's to the start of the indoor season.

Coming This Weekend: Diane's Tent Sale

Hey, our fellow dealer and frequent show neighbor Diane Passi is having a TENT SALE this Sunday, October 23, from 10 to 4, at her place in Wheaton, 841 Delles. Diane's stuff is always to die for, so be sure to check it out. Will have a sneak peek on the blog later in the week, or you can friend her on Facebook right now to take a look.

And don't forget about Zurko's Haunted Halloween Flea Market on October 29. Will post the half-off general admission coupon again next week. Happy shopping!

Today, I'm off to fluff our space at Mishawaka Antiques, run down a few more holiday supplies, then will be back at the office working on our NEW ETSY STORE!! Too exciting. More to come on that. Have a great week. xo
