Ekhorn Friends

Hey, everyone, I have to make this quick because I'm dead tired after an exhausting day at Elkhorn Antique Market.  I just wanted to share a few pictures of some of the other vendors at the market and their wonderful wares.

First is Gracie's Cottage.  Always filled with tons of goodies, and such a treat for the eyes as well.

I'm sure these guys enjoyed hanging out with the ladies all day.

They had such cute little vignettes set up all over their booth.  For more on Gracie's Cottage, visit them at

Next was The Potting Shed - Anything Goes Here.  Anne and I had to stop and see all the "girls".  This booth had tons to choose from, at very reasonable prices.

Aren't they great!  I would be in heaven if I had this many dress forms.  They were wonderful.  This vendor's booth is always a treat to go see.  She also has a ton to offer on line at Etsy.  For more visit or the

Last but certainly not least were the two adorable ladies from Apron Strings with Mom and Me.  This mother daughter duo had the cutest display.

Well, we hope you enjoyed your weekend.  Anne and I enjoyed Elkhorn a little more than usual today, thanks to my husband.  He helped us out all day and worked his tail off (mom had my kids at a family reunion - talk about exausting!), while Anne and I walked around and shopped, and ate, and shopped, and ate some more.  We managed to walk through the whole market, more that a couple of times.  My feet were killing me.  So a special thanks to him for all his hard work today!!

Here he is before we ditched him for the day.  I think he has a new appreciation for what us girls do all day! 




  1. Hey there! I looked and looked for your booth yesterday! Where were you? I saw all the booths that you featured but missed you gals. Oh well, guess I'll just have to come to the shop! ;) Any news on the ASCP?

  2. Love the chalk board, was it made out of a silver tray?

  3. So glad I found your blog via a "favorie blog." Love your photos and it makes me homesick for the midwest...such great antiquing out there. Sea Witch

  4. Hi, Just found your blog following a post about Elkhorn. Why don't I know about you? We are so close, and I've never checked you out. I'll watch for your next sale, hope it's soon! Penny

  5. Love your products, I think it is a great way of making money and meeting new people. I have the same sort of inspirational ideas when it comes to selling. One mans loss is another mans gain.

  6. Whereabouts do you pick up your merchandise from.... I do something very similar to yourself on a Sunday morning, I do a car boot, it costs me £6 for the pitch and then after that whatever i earn is my own. It is well worth the effort especially if you have lots of disposable assets in the house.

  7. I have found that online auction sites are often a good way of selling stuff of this nature. I have been selling similar over the last few weeks and have been making a good amount of profit out of it.
