Shop girls guide to surviving disaster.....


I just got off the phone with Kara, and we are going to write a book about "survival" of the fittest.

This is not going to be your average "survival" book, this is going to be a "shop girl" survival book.

You will find all that is necessary for setting up your market tent, outwitting the rain or snow, combating the heat and humidity, and also we will throw in some extra fun facts like what to do if your truck is broken into while at a show. (yup, happened to me).

We will also get you ready for life threatening situations, like if a hurricane comes through the area on the last day of the show. We are ALSO going to throw in for FREE, a c.d of music that you can square dance to, if you so desire that!


Yes, this book is in the making, and now we just need someone to pick it up and send it to publishing!


Now, on to something fun that is happening to my shop! My online shop is up and ready to go. Yes, it's true! My good friend Sara has been working nonstop on it while I was away, and has it ready to go.

It will be up and going Friday morning at 10 a.m Midwestern time.

I will have operators standing by for that HUGE rush to see the shop:)

Hey girl-
Funny,funny post! When things get that crazy you just have to resort to humor. Congrats on rising above it all and standing room only. I was with you all in spirit! My link to you isn't working all of a sudden. Anyone else having that problem? Can't wait to see the new digs. OPEN! OPEN! OPEN!

SHUT UP! Are you SERIOUS?? Even though I'll be "on the road" when the clock strikes "open", I'll have a lap top and a credit card with me -- so move aside all you other online shoppers!! :)

SO excited for you!! WOO HOO! Your site just looks BEAUTIFUL, too! I love the colors so much!

And may I say, between the pictures of the brick and mortar place that we see on your blog, and now the online shop, its hard to believe its been ONLY a year!!

How do you do it?? Small kids, a hubby, a home??? Wow.

Congrats and welcome to the sisterhood of online proprietresses!

K~
ha ho hee ho hum and "swing your partner" while the wind is a blowing!!!!!!!

I do think we need to get this online book thing published, an interview kinda thing like this...

reporting live from the CL fair

ok, really
1st thing.......
do not buy a ezee pop up tent unless you plan on using it in your own front yard on a sunny day and no breeze {or 60mph gusts} or moisture is in sight! Folks they are not waterproof!!! Darcy and I found this out a while back and of course Lola B's did as well over this weekend. {not fun} These tents are only for indoor use only. ha ho hee ha
"now grab your partner and swing to the left" take notice in background the speakers are blowing off the table. ha ho hee hum
K&D

now the girl meets the boy on her left and bring her around....honestly, I felt like we were on the titanic. When did the square dancers actually stop..? I didn't notice..between holding the tent down, pulling the tent down, and being asked if I wanted to learn square dancing...unbelievable. Too bad we didn't consult with Darcy before the trip! funny funny! The break in the truck, and the flooding on the way home were the cherry on top!
