We stayed up way too late Friday night as usual, but we still managed to be up and off to make some good yard sales. We were only 10 minutes from the Alabama end of the Longest Yard Sale!!! And, would you believe we did not go!!! It was tempting, but it was so hot and humid that we decided against getting caught up in the traffic and crowds.
We headed up Sand Mountain and stayed the whole day. We hit some retail stores with good sales and went to a flea market and a couple of thrift stores. My SUV was loaded down when we returned to Jan’s house. My favorite find was a beautiful French chest on chest. I can’t wait to give her the ASCP treatment.
Before making the two hour trek back to Blue Creek Home , Jan and I made one last stop at our booth at Emma Kate’s Cottage. In preparation for First Saturday night, the streets were blocked off and a crew was hard at work on the sound stage. Food vendors were up and going and a small crowd was already strolling the streets through “Antique Alley”. At Emma Kate’s, we visited with Theresa, the owner, the other vendors, and early shoppers. Jan is quite the salesperson. We had made a few sales before we left.
I arrived home around 9:00 and was spent! After loving on little Mason, I took a shower and fell into bed. Before falling asleep, I thought of the time I had spent with my sister and thanked God for the love of my wonderful family and the success that we have had at Emma Kate’s in the two months that we have been there.
We will be getting a half booth soon, as we are about to burst out of our space!! And, we have finally decided on a name. . .
