Today’s the big day at Sage


Jadeite! Pink! Piles of tablecloths! The world’s largest vintage dresser! I loved the way our booth looked. Shoppers did, too.

Yesterday morning our booth at the Sage Farm show was loaded with pastels galore. Thursday was “dealers only” day, Friday the show opened to the public, but of course lots of potential customers have to work. We’re hoping Saturday will bring lots and lots of shoppers.

We didn’t have a single spot to cram in one more item.

See some more!

I love you but I’m leaving you


The Sage Farm show is a garden of earthly delights for winter-weary eyes. It has green galore–which the New England landscape sure doesn’t!

The first thing to catch my eye was this barkcloth tea cozy.

Here’s how our booth looked at about 11 this morning when we arrived.

My car is jam-packed

It’s a good thing ManRay wasn’t planning to come along to this week’s show at Sage Farm. There isn’t any room in the car for him!

I’m bringing enough chenille dotted pillows to fill a large sofa. Aren’t these colors great together? They all have brand new pillow inserts.


These crazy pillows make me smile every time I look at them.

See what else I’m bringing along!

Ooooh, this is going to be good!


Grab your Easter bonnet and make plans to be at Sage Farm’s Hint of Spring show this weekend!

This afternoon I delivered the first load of stuff to our booth space. It took me all of five minutes to get everything out of my overstuffed car—mostly because two of the guys who run the show started hauling things for me without my saying a word. They are super nice!

Having portage assistance, of course, gave me plenty of time to wander around the building looking at all new things other dealers were setting up.

Ohhhh my goodness, there is some great stuff here!

Okay, one more sneak peek:


Fantastic chippy kitchen dresser (that’s what they used to call these things) with a stash of enamelware pots and utensils. Love the molding and turned details on it!

That’s all for now. I’ve gotta go iron linens.
