Gaye and I headed up to Ohio on Friday, where she taught two classes - everything went well, and it was great to see familiar faces again.
Friday night is always a treat with the Preview Party - shopping, eating, visiting, and of course checking out what people wear for the costume contest. The theme this year was Prom Night. The first people we saw were Mary Jo McGraw and Elaine Madrid, decked out oh-so-fine in their prom attire (even though Elaine had a dead critter around her neck!)
here. And of course Elaine's booth (Carmen's Veranda) has always had the fun-nest stamps over the years. You can find Carmen's Veranda here.
Coffee Break, and Bianca.
It was fun shopping old vendors and new. Jenni Bowlin was there with all the great products she sells (journal cards, stamps, papers). They also had a lot of vintage things, and I bought this L&N train record book. Most of the pages were blank, but some had train maintenance records written on them.
After we shopped a little more Saturday, we hit the road south around mid day. The World's Longest Yard Sale was the same weekend, and when we crossed the Ohio River into Kentucky, the first stop was Covington, where we know there are a lot of booths up and down Main Street. Gaye is the yard sale professional. Nothing will keep her from this event. Not even 100 degree temperature! Me, I'm a big wimp. Hate that kind of heat and humidity. But we only get this opportunity once a year, so we were not deterred.
We shopped one side of Main Street, then stopped to rest and cool off inside at Chez Nora, where we had a burger for a late lunch. Outside, we finished up the other side of the street, where I bought several ink bottles.
