In March Lori and I had our first big Watkins booth at Tannehill Trade Day.
It was a good day, but I’m glad we didn’t stay for two days worth or I might have died from exhaustion.
It takes a lot of work to pull off these militant rows of dip and lotions!
With two kids and Anthony in Boston for two months, we are struggling with the Watkins biz right now. Lori and I plan to give it one more shot at Mt. Laurel Spring Festival on April 18th, and the assess where we are from there.
I mean, who doesn’t want to buy from these two shining faces? I know I would.
J spent a lot of time in his basement workshop creating these beautiful wooden window shadowboxes.
I’m hoping to sell some to the Mt. Laurel crowd!
The best part about Tannehill was seeing TONS of people from my past. Facebook has reconnected me with so many people from elementary school and high school. I’m blown away when I look through my friends list and see names of people that I have not seen in 20 years!
Let’s see if I can remember who all I saw that day at Tannehill. There were so many I hope I don’t forget anyone. Shannon Niblett (Turner) from my Dairy Queen days in high school was there with her family. They had several booths set up and gave me insider info before I arrived. Clint and Brandy Hayes came out with their two adorable kiddos. My cousins Karen and Lindsey showed up and perused the booth for a minute. Andy and Meredith were there, and I felt bad because they arrived at the same time as my old friend Tiffany from high school who I haven’t seen since graduation day 14 years ago! Tiffany was there with her mom and sweet little boy Sam who is not much older than Garrett. It was so great to see her again.
Then there were the REAL blasts from my past! The old Vance peeps! Amy Foster stopped by with her little boy who was born just 2 weeks after Garrett was born. My best friend from elementary school, Kristi Kizziah came by with her new husband! I haven’t seen her in FOREVER, so that was really cool to get to see her again!
It’s so awesome to see everyone again. I was so busy I didn’t get to talk to anyone for very long, but I was so touched that so many people braved the crowds and stopped by my booth. I’m glad I have facebook in my life to keep me updated on all of their lives.
Thanks so much for stopping in everyone!
