We get it -- it's still not even Halloween, let alone Thanksgiving, and we're already talking about Christmas. Not to mention the fact that no one has yet to recover from last winter before being faced with this one. But ready or not, here it comes. So we decided to go on the offensive and signed up to sponsor two kids -- both 10 to 14, one boy, one girl -- through Operation Christmas Child. You're invited to join us! Here's the scoop: items must be small enough to fit into the shoeboxes shown. Suggested are toys, school supplies, non-liquid hygiene products and personal accessories such as socks, hats, flip-flops. No-gos include food, liquids, breakables and "war-related" items. If you'd like to help out, please bring your contribution to next weekend's Kane County (IL) Flea Market. We'll be sure it gets included by the deadline. Thanks in advance!! Our November show calendar: Kane County (IL) Flea Market, November 1-2; Junk Jubilee Jingles, Des Moines, IA, November 14-16; Washington Street Market, Naperville, IL, November 21-23. It IS beginning to look a lot like Christmas! xo and stay tuned for details!!
