Pam is one of those kind hearted people!
Not only does she sell amazing artwork ~ she sells patterns too!
Pam is amazing I am just awed by her artwork!

I bought this Beautiful Pumpkin Pin Keep from Pam!
Some of my goodies I got from the show!

After the show we went downtown to check out the shops.
There are a lot of wonderful art galleries!
~Broken Glass Window Frame~
I thought this pumpkin man was adorable!
Sorry I can't show you what I bought ~ they are Christmas gifts
They also had a car show going on downtown.
I found my Bat Mobile!  LOL

On Sunday before heading home we stopped in St. Joseph, MI and went to this awesome flea market on the Bluff!
View from the flea market!
So many prims!

My favorite booth!
She had the most amazing vintage sewing items!
Look at all the beautiful vintage pinkeeps she had!
I bought this beautiful sewing drawer from her!
I did get her business card to share with all of you ~ but for the life of me ~ I can't find it.
(To the nice gal that sold me this, if you read this Please contact me via email)

My goodies I bought at the flea market!

After the flea market we headed south and stopped in Laporte, IND
We found a wonderful Antique Store  "Coachman Antique Mall"
Located at 500 Lincoln Way

My goodies from there!
Isn't this pencil box the best?

Our journey continues ~ it's getting late!
Traffic is heavy!
About 3 more hours to go!

We're getting closer to HOME!

We arrived Home around 10:00 p.m. Sunday night.
I hope you all enjoyed my fun filled weekend!
Until next time!
I hope you all get to see many sunsets in your lifetime!
Prim Blessings

Robin, you grabbed all of those items?
Oh, I'd be in heaven. The Pumpkin Pin
Keep is wonderful, but when I scrolled
down and saw the rest of your things
my mouth fell open. That composition
doll looks a lot like my Patsy dolls from
the 30s. Maybe she is one?
What a day, just awesome pictures.

I would definitely have to start throwing out - actually,I did, my daughter took home armloads so I could fit in some new goodies this year. This would have been way too tempting.
