Recently, I met up with my friends Bonnie and Marian at a wonderful sale we attend each summer in Independence, Missouri. It's always held on the second Saturday in July on the grounds of the gorgeous Bingham-Waggoner Estate. It's a sale that consistently draws terrific antiques and crafts vendors.
While I LOVE to look for bargains or additions to my collections, I now have an eye for finding PINKS, too!
However, I was eager to locate another booth. It was one that belonged to fellow bloggers---who are sisters. I'd been looking forward to meeting them ever since I found out they would be vendors at this, my FAVORITE SALE OF THE ENTIRE YEAR!!!
It wasn't too long before I found THE WILD RASPBERRY booth and two of the owners, sisters, Chastity on the left and Deb on the right! They create wonderful fabric items, which include adorable aprons! You will love visiting their blog and on line shop!
Yes, while I was busy finding PINK stuff and fellow bloggers, Bonnie (left) and Marian (right) were shopping away!!! Bonnie was really giving that purchase some serious consideration!
That sale was about three weeks ago.
We're getting the itch to go antiquing again.
But this time, it's gonna be a ROAD TRIP! Yes, indeedy, it's a Road Trip to celebrate OUR birthdays! While Bonnie's was in March and Marian's was in April and mine is NOW, we are going to roll the parties into one and take a short trip in honor of our special days!
So, I pulled out my bags.
Actually, Bonnie, Marian and I all have the SAME bags! Yep, we found them at a sale one year and have taken them on the road a few times! We each put little tags on our bags so we could tell them apart. . . . it can get a little confusing! :)
I packed a couple of my serious shopping shirts.
The top one says it all and the other one, the PINK John Deere shirt, will be very appropriate because we're heading to rural Missouri, just East and North of the Kansas City area.
I also packed my PINK flip flops . . . . .
and the early birthday gift I bought for myself---a PINK "LUG" bag! I found it at Sharleen's shop, LUTICIA CLEMENTINE'S, located on the historic Square in Independence, Missouri.
THE STONE RABBIT also reminded me to take a Missouri Map. Bonnie, Marian and I have a tendency to get lost. . . . . .enough said on that topic!! :)
Looks like I'm ready for our Birthday Road Trip and you can bet I'll be on the lookout for some swell PINKNESS to share on a future Pink Saturday Post or two!!
