What's in your wagon?

My husband will tell you that the phrase he hears most often from me is, "You can't do business from an empty wagon". It's my stock answer for just about anything he throws at me!

Like when I get that look that says, "Why on earth did you buy that?" Or, when he says, "Is that thing as heavy as it looks?" And the line that most of us women have heard at least once, "What are you gonna do with that thing?" I just smile and say, "You can't do business from an empty wagon." Works everytime! Although it's sometimes met with an eye roll and a sigh.

Well the wagon is now empty, but the store is FULL!! In fact, it's beyond full....oh my goodness the stuff!! Like the vintage concrete chickens pictured above, aren't the fabulous!

Get ready! Just 5 more days!!

See you on Saturday, August 29th, 9am - 5pm!

Bring your empty wagons and come on!!

Laurie, yes I have heard all of the same questions. How about "you are not going to put that in your store are you"? He is starting to get it, old, chippy, rusty is in. Hope you have a great show. I am going to try your saying, about the empty wagon. Sandi

Oh how I wish I could visit Texas in a few days. I'm sure I wouldn't come back to Tennessee with an "empty wagon". I love your photos - makes me want to shop till I drop!

I really wish you were closer to me, or I to you. I would definitely be at your fall opening. Good luck and please take lots of pics!

Love that! Will have to remember it when I get one of those "eye-roll-mouth-agape-what?" looks. LOL.
