For the third week in a row I’m at the Cleveland County Fairgrounds with my booth of handmade, recycled, repurposed, rescued, and restored goodies.
You can buy my Chalkboard Chairs for homework, grocery lists, to do lists, family notes and reminders. Right now I have Crimson with the black chalkboard desktop; and Very Berry Pink with the black chalkboard desktop. There are matching pillows and, if you want it, the matching pillow is included in the $35 price.
The hand crocheted rag rug is $20; the little blue chair with woven seat is $10,
I have a red—shabby chic style—bentwood cafe chair, made in Czechoslovakia. The tag is still glued to the bottom. I got this chair when the Firehouse Art Center had a second-hand sale about 25 years ago! It wasn’t red at the time. It was the original dark brown stain that came from the factory in Europe. It’s tagged at $20. The child’s wicker chair has also been with me over twenty years. I took it from a dark hunter green to Key Lime recently. It adds a good pop to any room you decide to put it in. It’s tagged at $10
Turquoise is another “popping” color that’s seeing a lot of airtime this year. I used that on the short stool on the left with a graphic floral of turquoise, brown, and shades of green for the padded top that I added. Sooo comfy! It’s tagged at $25.
That cute pink wooden basket was an ugly gray plant holder less than a week ago. I forgot to take “before” pictures, but take my word for it! It’s a huge improvement!
The Owley Cats continue to get a load of attention. One more was adopted into a good home today. The $4 adoption fee includes an adoption certificate.
You can see I’ve added a small shelf with books—this is the tip of the iceberg as to the books I can unload—they are $1 each or you can buy a bunch for bulk pricing. There is a sewing machine, actually two; hand crocheted afghans—way too hot now, but remember I have them when it cools off in a couple of months—a chalk memo board; fleece flower pins, advertising tins, aprons, black shutters, hand-painted oils and tole paintings by my mom; an adjustable turquoise footstool ($10); a desk chair (Sweet Pea and Lilac, $25) a few baskets; some awning striped patio pillows; a basket full of cushy baby blocks ($10 for the basket and the blocks)…
As to student chairs, in addition to the pink and purple, I have a red one with a lime green, hot pink and red pillow if you’re interested, and another in black and white, the matching zebra pillow has yet to be assembled (oops!); and I’m still looking for the print fabric with pink and purple together for the third chair.
All the booths are on the west side this week and if you come in the garage doors in the middle—look for the American flag— I’m across the aisle just to your left. Come check out everything.
Come see me!
