All Set To Go!

Good Evening, Well Black Duck Antiques is all packed and ready to head out before the sun is up. As a matter of fact, I think we will be pulling out before the roosters crow!! We will be out at the Hunderton Fair Grounds, Ringoes, NJ on Sunday. We are under cover, but I think the weather will be nice. Wish us luck that folks will be doing a little buying and not just looking. This will be our fourth time here and we just have a hard time cracking that nut and making a little money,but because we do other shows that these promoters do, we feel that we got hang in there. Not to mention that really none of us are spending money on something that we don't need. Well, off to get a shower and then to bed, I will be back and let you all know how we did.

Where does time go?

I don't have the answer, all I know it has been a long time since I posted. I have been reading all of my favorite blogs, but I guess I didn't have anything to post. Ginnysyard is hanging in there, the heat did in alot of my annuals, but that's okay, they were getting tired looking. And in our part of the Lehigh Valley, our tomato plants were hit with a blight. Nasty looking tomatos!! We were looking forward to making sauce from them, but thats not going to happen. I started to clean up the area where they are planted last night. They said we have to throw away the plant, don't compost it. Now, in our antique show world, things are happening. We are off to Ringoes, NJ Sunday 9/21 for a one day show and then we leave the Black Duck Antiques van loaded and head off on Wed 9/23 to set-up at Kutztown, PA for the big three day show. On top of that we have to go shopping at a couple of sales this week. But, we do enjoy this and I don't think we would have it any other way. Okay, maybe if we had a shop in our home that would be the best, and if I could do antiques, gardening, etc. full-time and make money at it, boy I would be one happy lady. Maybe one day, it can't hurt to dream. Well, back to my real job, the one that is currently paying the bills, have a great day.
