Dover High School Band Booster's Show............

I thought I would share some pics of our set up in the hallway from this past weekend's show. We were set up in the hallway outside of the cafeteria. So we really got to spread out. We kept our display right up against the lockers so our customers could see easier and with it all spread out, they had more room to view things without having people standing in their way.


Some little prim dollies in our black cradle........


Our awesome podium that we take to shows. A special thank you to Stacey of Tattered 'n Torn Prims and her hubby for custom making this for us several years back. I purchased the vintage ceiling tin tile off of eBay. It came from a saloon in Montana! See Joycee's Mischief black cat sitting up there for all to admire?


There's Penelope standing there! Lots of people at the show bought tickets for a chance to win her..........


Prim goodies, Mercantile Gatherings magazines in the fall basket and Laura's stacked pumpkin blocks. Those little block sayings in the bowl were a hit! They have the cutest sayings on them!


You can see how long our dispay was in this pic...........


A special THank You to Joycee, Memo, Laura, Lincoln and Riley for helping us haul in, set up, and tear down! We got it all done in record time!! YEAH!!!


Our Ohio State Buckeyes section was very popular with the shoppers there.......


Our black Halloween tree with little prim ornies. Best comment of the show overheard by Memo...."Oh.....it's a black tree.........Oh, it's a halloween tree................Oh, that's wrong............that's just all wrong." Some people just don't get it! I should write a book on all the overheard comments made at shows.........LOL!


Our vintage door with our ceiling tin tile star. We also use vintage shutters to hang things from. Why is it that everyone always wants to by our display pieces? LOL


Joycee's newest style dolls are sitting on top of the cupboard. They are paper clay over cloth and I'm trying to talk her into listing at least one on eBay. Leave your comments on this post to try to convince her too. She thinks people won't like them because they are different than her other dolls. Let's all convince her otherwise............


Show sales were down from last year, but we expected that with everything that is going on with the economy and this being election year too.

Wish you all could have came to see us! Remember that our Village Gift Shoppe Fall Open House is this weekend too! We hope you have time to stop by and see us at 106 N. Walnut Street in historical downtown Gnadenhutten, OH. We'll have free door prizes and refreshments for all!


And don't forget to sign up for a chance to win Miss Penelope pumpkin. Tickets are 50 cents each or 3 for $1.00. We'll draw the lucky winners name on Sunday October 19th at the end of the day when we draw the door prize winners names..........
