New (old) shop pics part 2

What a great weekend we had... the market was great! I think I almost had record sales again! Thank you everyone! :) I even ran into a girl that I went to school with since I was in grade school! She just moved to Appleton! We also got 4 free tickets to a water park in the Dells from our neighbor.. while it was fun, it was a bit chilly! I am just gald the park was free.. Jada loved it and went on some crazy waterslides that I am glad she did with Jake while I was with Max! I would of freaked out! She is quite the daredevil/thrill seeker!!! Yikes! We ended up driving a 1/2 hour to my parents and spent the afternoon swimming in their pool and grilling out! They litterally saved the day! It is sooo pretty where I grew up.. driving through all the hills and grass and farm land in the little beetle with the moon roof open was a perfect end to a fun day!

Here are a few more pics of the shop! Remember tomorrow is Oshkosh's celebration for the premier of the movie Public Enemies.. celebrations start at noon! We will have special hours tomorrow ..open 10-4 stop on by & pick up your collectable trading card!

Happy Monday!

I think summer is finally here! It has been a week of firsts.. the A/C was turned on.. our first trip to the pool & I am pretty sure I heard something about 90 degrees today! Yikes!
Last year I had the hardest time finding a suit that I like.. Tankini's or whatever they called are not sooo flattering on me and after two c-sections not really wanting a bikini! Well believe it or not I went to a local JCPenney store and found my new fav. suit and it is totally me! I could not find the exact one on their site.. but it is close! Mine is chocolate brown with teal polka dots and trimmed with teal ric rac right under the bust! I love it.. it is a cute swim dress with that vintage 40's look! So cute!
I am off to the shop to turn on the A/C before I attempt to sit in there and set everything up!

Stay cool everyone!
