~Yankee Peddler 2010: One Weekend Down...Two to Go~


What a beautiful first weekend at Yankee Peddler Festival! The weather was perfect: not too hot, not too cold. As Goldilocks says, "It was JUST right"! The crowds were non-stop. We had fun greeting new customers.....and many many 'old' ones. It warms my heart whenever someone stands in front of me and proclaims, "I have lots of your dolls. Some from 20 years ago...you know, the ones with the twine hair? I'm buying THIS one for MY daughter!" Full circle. First their moms bought them for them....now they are buying them for THEIR children. It doesn't get much better than that!!






These two little sisters each picked out their favorite TuTu Cheeky Monkey. Even at these young ages, they know what they like! They are just TOO-TOO cute!






My new sterling silver Heirloom Collection Jewelry sold too well! I'm busy filling orders. I was happy to see it was so well-received.

My web-designer is working hard on my web site. I know I'm holding her up, but hope to have it up-and-running sometime next week. I'm very excited about the way it's coming out. (thank you, Ashley!!)

Stop by and say hello....we're there the next two weekends in Booth #214. I'm off to the studio to make more Tutus, Cheeky Monkeys, Vintage Rabbits....and more~




One of my youngest "fans". Her momma bought her a second Cheeky Monkey because she's so attached to the one she's holding that was purchased at YP last year, that her momma fears if they lose it, they'll be in BIG trouble!! Here she is pointing to the one she wants~
