another flat out week

Hi everybody,

had another busy week getting ready
for two markets one at the peninsula school on Thursday and the other is  Christmas at the studio in Merrick's north ,both with Vanessa from the Vintage emporium.
Both great markets however Melbourne weather let us down today and opened the heavens and we all got rather wet.
 Tomorrow I'm heading off to do some buying at mornington race course where there is a collectibles and clothing market both nearly in my back yard so I can't miss that opportunity !
 Enjoy the rest of your weekend
cheers Lyn

Two estate week

Hi everyone,

been flat out this week

with two estates

cleaning, washing,repairing and pricing

now all we have to do is get them to

the centers

stating to feel like it will never end !
On the positive lots of great stuff and some great raw materials for me to make things out of (tapestries lace vintage sheets).
On the negative going thru  around twenty garbage bags of stuff that the owners had thoughtful packed up and left outside (really really yucky) and had thrown out Victorian laces beautiful pictures and fabulous kitchenalia. But I guess it was all rubbish to them.
 So over the next week I hope to get some nice bits and bobs out there.
I will post some better photos later in the week.
Cheers Lyn
