Just so you know...THE BARN SALE STARTS TONIGHT!  And I am soooo excited!  Can't wait to catch up with you all, and we do really have some awesome things to share with you!  The barn is all decorated, and I think EVERYTHING is ready except the food!

The last two vendors are...

Kim Herd...with her beautiful Cookie Lee Jewelry. Have you seen it? You'll love it! And..,

Kenny Robinson...he has lots of cool antiques, collectibles, and just stuff to share with you.  Kenny let Sharon and I come pick when he was getting a house ready to sell, and he's really a great guy.  You'll enjoy seeing all his cool finds!

So...there you have it.  I hope I haven't left anyone out, but if I have, you'll have to just be surprised!  Oh...AND... on Saturday the Leprechaun 4-H Club will be selling coffee and donuts in the morning, and yummy Hamburgers, Hot Dogs, etc. at lunchtime.  So, come hungry!  See you soon!!!

Here I am again!  I do keep my promises, huh?  Wanted to give you a few more vendors to think about...and I will be back tomorrow with the rest!  We have joining us...

Sue Reszutek...with Pot Luck (that's the name of her business). You will just have to check her out to see what that is!
Deborah Mitchell with Tastefully Simple...you know what that is...and it's wonderful...stock up while she's here!
Susan Taylor... with her beautiful baskets.  Some 30 years ago when I was a new Mom, I took a basket making class (you knew I was a basket case, right?). Well I just loved making baskets, and eventually taught a class in the adult education program at North Dorchester High School.  Well, Susan was in one of my early classes and has been weaving ever since!  Well, the skills of this student have long ago surpassed her teacher, and I actually haven't made a basket in quite a while. I know you will just LOVE these baskets and welcome Susan to our tribe of vendors!

That's all for today...talk at ya tomorrow...and maybe see you tomorrow night? Our hours are 5-9 PM tomorrow, and we will be charging $5 admission.  100% of the admission proceeds will be donated to The American Cancer Society.  AND...we will be having some tasty treats to share, along with a sneak peek and early buying opportunity for all of you!  LOVE YOU GUYS...you're the best customers ever!

Sorry, sorry, sorry for the delay in posting.  I'm hoping to never again be in the MIDST of asparagus season while getting ready for the barn sale.  I am one tired, busy, but happy girl.  Usually the sale is earlier, and asparagus is later, but this year it fell right in there together!  Okay, enough with the excuses!  Our vendor update:
Ever heard of Nan's Nappies?  Well, I hadn't either, but I haven't had any grandchildren yet, so don't really have a reason for nappies right now!  But, with the arrival of Sharon's 2nd grandchild, I began hearing about this wonderful business!  And, come to find out, Nan is a former classmate of mine (a couple years older, I will remind her, but a really good friend of my brother!). Nancy will be taking orders for monogrammed items...and not only baby things, either.  She can do loads of other items, as well!
And, you may have seen TJ Mumford at our sale before.  Not selling anything, but TJ and Fran are great customers, and bring their sweet friend Emily, as well.  Well, TJ has written a few children's books (careful...they will bring tears to your eyes!).  Always the sale of those books benefit some worthy cause.  You will find TJ at our sale with his books, and you might even see Fran, Emily, and her dog Guinnes (he's the star of one of the books!).
Gotta go for now...promise I'll post again tomorrow!
