More quilts and fun stuff!
Children's chairs and benches came from a music school in New York. The vendor would only sell them as a set------- boo! hoo! :(
Vendors! More than 30,000 people attend this show each year. This event is always the third weekend in June. Walnut, Iowa, has 17 blocks of dealers outside and two indoor halls.
Cute little vintage Dutch dolls ---they almost came home with me!
Getting close to the end of the day and ooooh--- this fainting couch looks good and comfortable. Don't you agree?
Loading up the car and going home---- to rest!
Thank you "Marge" for a fun filled day!
And now---- back to reality! This is what I will be working on a while- using my scraps for these new projects.
