Ding Dong the Witch is in...

@ 9:00 !!!

It was a cool fall morning... the witches & cats
gathered to greet customers! 

The line up began early and stretched 
down the block!  

The "Mr." baked two of his famous 
chocolate cakes! 
There is not a bite left tonight!

A view of the market.
Lot's of great goods under those tents! 

Thanks for those who came today! 
For those you couldn't or live to far
you can dream in pictures... tomorrow!

... time for bed. It's been a long day.
... good, but long! 

Are you a Flea Market Style Magazine "Junkie" ?

If you answered yes... then you need to come
out to Shopkeeper & Friends Antique & Artisan Market
@ The Whistle Stop Today  9a.m. - 4p.m.
and meet my friend Cammie from Daffadowndilly's!

Here's Cammie & I in her shop. Yes, I'm the 
one with my eyes shut. Don't look at me, look at
all the great junk behind us! Lot's & lot's & lot's!!!

Cammie as they say is a "jill-of-all-trades".
She's been in the "pickin'" business
long before all the TV shows have
shown it to be popular! 

Cammie finds, repurposes, lots of 
the great goods you find in 
Flea Market Style. She's bringing 
some magazine with her. So, if 
you haven't gotten one yet, you'll
have to get one! 
Maybe she'll even sign
it for you!

Vendor Goods... you're goin' to love them!

Karen Greenfield's Primitive Goods!
Pumpkins, felted wool, button designs & witches!
Promise the only spell she'll put on you is
that you'll love her stuff! 

  A Bit of Vintage by Sally Wells
A wonderful collection of necklaces made 
with vintage trinkets. It will be hard to choose
just one! She'll be bringing other vintage & 
primitive goods as well! 

One woman's junk... well we know it's always 
a treasure with Daffadowndilly's! Cammie Methany
has just returned from the Nebraska Junk Jaunt.
I'm sure some of these treasures will be heading
to Shopkeeper & Friends this Saturday! 

These pictures of Paula Conner's wares 
are from our June Shopkeeper & Friends market.
 I can't wait to see what she's bringing this time! 
You can always expect wonderful primitives from 

Poverty Hills will be here with
more PUMPKINS! ... and I'm 
sure a few treasures from the farm as well! 

These are just a few of the vendors that will be
joining us on Saturday! More introductions to come tomorrow!
