some good signs.....

WORD ON THE STREET......
some good reports this week;;
HERITAGE IN FORT WAYNE... I TALKED TO A BUYER WHO SAID IT WAS REAL BUSY WITH LOTS OF GOOD VENDORS....its a wholesale cash and carry show...in other words shops can go there and buy right on the spot..... its a place you hope you can find some new start up companies with new and exciting merchandise..... we have several of these shows in the midwest....in columbus ohio there is heritage and offingers....and in pennsylvania there are others ...including market square....and heritage...

AUCTIONS GOING HIGHER.... there are more buyers out there ...so i take that as good..even tho i much prefer the depressed prices when im buying!!!

GOOD REPORT FROM A GOOD BUDDY .... her store is in a good town in ohio and doing just fine..SHES HAD IT 8 YRS, SO OVER THE START UP ISSUES...ive known her at least 6 yrs and always listen to her ideas....we used to be on country business retailer forum together......her store is very fresh and full of well displayed merchandise....shes one of the few stores i know who is doing great still........she carries, vera, creative coop, lots of nice high to middle range companies... she has a baby and mom department, a garden department, and lots of all about me stuff..and home decor ...and GREEN OAK FURNITURE!!!! and some clothes ....just a nice young mix..with plenty for any woman interested in decorating..... not much country and not much super high priced.... i would say a good upscale look with reasonable prices...part of her recipe is great fun events and definitely getting input from her college age daughters..... it w as good to see someone doing so well amid all the depressing reports from all around....
and also read a GOOD VENDOR REPORT from the big springfield flea market
so lets hope things are picking up for everybody...... .....

Love all that good news! And I agree with it -- we've had some good shows and auction prices have been strong. Let's keep it going. Have a great weekend and good luck with your sale. xo -- Sandy and Joe/rhubarb reign
