Twas the Day

Twas the day of the Outdoor Gala

When all through the parking lot

People were stirring and filling up our shop.

The Ruby purses were all lined up, placed with such care

The signs were all hung, quiet in the crisp Fall air.

The pumpkins awaited a home of their own

....which one will he choose? The grey one, the green one, the orange or the blue?

The fire was cracklin' to warm those cold fingers and toes,
The music was drifting to soothe the soul.

The baked goods and sweets flowed aplenty


Malt balls...

Carmel corn and honey.

People came to admire the fancy ride

And gander at the great lookin' vintage bike....

Rusty finds and junkyard delights.....

In piles and rows stacked to the sky.

The charm of it all, so simple and nice

A bit of sparkle

A bit of glitter

a bit of whimsy dresses it all up just right.

Gorgeous buffets

and tables and vanities...

....cozy home accessories

and my favorite: the cubby!

Something for every home

whether it be country ...

...or fluff.

Now then, enough is enough.... let's not forget the smalls:

Creative and lovely...

and of course the most precious smalls of all...(no she's not for sale!)

A few finds for the men: thermos' and helmets, rusty tools...

..... how 'bout a statue of the Deep Thinker? And.....well, maybe that's all. :-)

The weather was beautiful.... a chilly but sunny day, a grande time for all. Ok, I'm going to stop rhyming now because this post is going to take me all Fall.

Thank you to all our great vendors, consignors and customers who made this day a day to remember!

I'm done now. :-)

Without a hitch....

So what's a big event without a hitch? UNREALISTIC!! Things change so we roll with it (I'm still learning to roll). Ruby's Cafe won't be serving up hot dogs and chili, but we'll still have cake and punch and coffee and carmeled apples and soooo many baked goods you'll go crazy!

On another note, we've got a last minute vendor that is joining us that we're very excited about. He'll be inside the shop making custom ordered t-shirts on the spot for $5 each! He's bringing his printing press, t-shirts and has a huge computer full of over 200,000 images you can pick from for your special tee. Where else can you get a customized shirt for that price?

We'll have our very own pumpkin stand too. You won't believe the size of some of these pumpkins at prices you won't believe either!

And lastly, the weather. Folks, I've watched the extended forecast everyday now for what seems like a month. I've been on my knees praying for good weather. And everyday the forecast changes, sometimes for good, sometimes not. It's always a gamble when you plan something outside, but in all honesty we're very excited no matter what comes our way. It's Fall, so let's celebrate...rain, shine, thunder, snow...maybe not that extreme, but you get the point. Bundle up and come check out all the goodies we have inside the shop and outside, UNDER canopies. Heck, I'm hauling a fire pit and wood to the shop so you can warm your hands if need be, too! See you on Saturday.....
