Wool Yankers Hook-in ~


Life has been busy but boring.  Nothing on the rug front.  I am now half done with the hit and miss border but it doesn't look a whole lot different than the last time you saw it. 
I spent a good part of the week getting ready for the Wool Yankers hook-in where friend Melissa and I had the privilege of vending.  I was pleased with my sales :)  Anything to help support my habits (hooking & antiques).

Our table

My stuff

Melissa's stuff
She makes the most wonderful jewelry
using lots of wool and buttons
and other fun stuff

Part of the rug display.  That's my Magdalena dog and crows on the middle right.

Melissa had told me about a tag sale last week.  I went on the first day.  They had some neat stuff but the prices were high.  I saw this fun table top desk but wasn't willing to spend the money.  Melissa was going on day 2 when most things are half price.  I asked her to purchase the desk for me if it was still there.  I was shocked when she said it was still there so she was able to get it for me.  What a surprise when I was getting it from her.  There was a ribbon tied around it and she gave it to me for my birthday.  What a wonderful gift!  We will be able to use it as our cash drawer when we vend at another hook-in at the end of May.  Thanks Melissa.  You are a dear friend :)
Only 17 1/2" wide, it has a leather top . . .

. . . and inside the lid, names and places are written and carved in.  Isn't that just too cool?  I wonder who Mabel Snyder was.  The owner of the desk or fancied by the owner?

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)

Sweet Lauren, I'm happy that you were pleased with your sales and that you got that desk from your good friend Melissa. What a thoughtful friend she is. I think I would have done the same thing as I think you really deserve it.

Your Magdalena rug looks very nice.
I hope you have a great week. It looks like spring is coming finally.
Hugs, Julia
