My Trip to Nipomo and "The Booth"

I was invited to join a couple of pals in a local Antique/Craft Shop, to rent a booth. I did it and am very excited to say ...TODAY I started to set up :) I am looking forward to sharing the journey with all my sweet followers. My little spot is small but I pray to grow and I pray to have the time to make it happen.

The News:
My best pal and I have officially made a tradition to head down to Nipomo, twice a year, for the Remnants of the Past Flea Market. We have now made it a weekend long ...girls trip :). Last year we stumbled upon an amazing B and B, and this past weekend was our 2nd stay at the gorgeous Tuscan Style home , where we were spoiled rotten for 48 hours. This year we were fortunate to have hang out with Rachel Ashwell. Her new book is so inspiring and her when she spoke , she was incredibly real and directly from her soul.
We found amazing goods that I can hardly wait to make a part of my home. We also made some interesting memories along the way. BTW.. traveling with 4 girls can make for one eventful weekend!

Did I mention the wine tasting on the way down to the Flea Market? Too many winery's to choose from. We usually choose 2 or 3 new ones each time. This time...well...we struck out... BUT Route 46 winery , had amazing pear pie :) The wine was not to my liking but the deli was beyond incredible.

Ok..back on track !!! We started out wine tasting, followed by shopping in SLO (San Luis Obisipo) Hung out in Cal Poly college town (Christina and I thought we were back in college for about 2 hours.

But realized we really are getting old so, went to dinner with our buddies and her daughter and daughters room mate...Im convinced they think Im totally cool.

We slept like babies and then headed to the flea market!!

We bought pumpkins.......

We bought......we ate...we laughed....we met new friends..we bought......

We hung with Rachel ASHWELL..Queen of the Shab!!!!!

We bought too much and ended up renting a U- Haul (not in the plan).

Yet, we had no hitch - nor adapter - nor hook ups - NOR experience driving a trailer...

That is just another memory ..Right?

I made it home to my babies to which I am so darn grateful for! Thank you Jesus!!!!!
