What a busy 3 days in Columbus!
On our journey to buying, we came across the Warm Glow Candle Outlet in Centerville, Indiana…I’ve seen it before but seeing this huge candle is always so cool. I’ve never seen it at night so I’m wondering if the flame lights up and flickers…anyone know?
Going through Illinois there is an area of the Wind Turbines – it’s like they are growing out there….and it’s for miles and miles in both directions. They run in and East/West corridor. I think it’s
a rather spooky look myself – rather sci-fi and with the bit
of rain it was even more so.

We arrived in Columbus there around 3 on Thursday in time to
go to the Columbus Market…Hmmmm….not so good, well the products were good – but we didn’t buy anything there.
Beautiful handmade products but the prices were high.
Well deserved prices though…just more than we
could justify for resale. And there were only about 14 vendors
there so we were in and out in 1/2 hours or so.
We had quite a bit of the afternoon and evening left so
we went to CWI and bought a few goodies.
Friday we got to the Heritage show early to stand in line to get in and it was a wonderful show of all American Hand Made products.
We bought a few items there and also saw a few girls we
had been hoping to meet from the blogs.
Dawn from http://hollyhillsprimitives.blogspot.com/ and her husband found us while in line, I must say Dawn is soooo sweet.
We ran into them off and on during the time we were there.
We had hoped to meet up with them at North Shore Primitives
in the afternoon but that didn’t happen
We also met Vicki from the APP forum and Jan whom I met on the internet. It was a fun day all around.
Then we left to head to North Shore Primitives where we met LISA from http://primsfromabove.blogspot.com/
She had her mother Sandy with her and I give them so much credit for hanging around as long as they did till we got there. It was further away from where we were than we realized! Wish we would have had more time to spend with them….what wonderful people!!!
I’m so happy I had the chance to finally meet Lisa, Dawn, Jan and Vicki!
Saturday again up early to get downtown to the Offinger’s show
where we bought more things here than we thought we would
so it was a good shopping day.

Well, enough of the chatter…on to what we bought. Now mind you it’s
not put out on display and some of it isn’t even unpacked but I wanted
to get some pictures of what we bought before it got put away.
Some will be sold, some is ours.
From Ragon House I bought 2 sets of these Yellow Ware eggs
so I’ll have 12 to put out in this Robins Egg Blue bowl.
Also from Doug Musser they had these large bags of Pods and Pine Cones and some other kind of outdoorsy thing like a vine….They were displayed in a large bowl and caught my eye…so had to had them!
I’ll show a picture later after I decide where they are going.
Now this was my bargain buy. When I was buying the candles at The Hidden Den space I saw these Wool fabric scraps in a bin….she had $1.00 per each piece but when I checked out it was .50 cent a piece!
I purchase 14 pieces for very little and got my favorite colors. I took several photos and none of the colors show up like they really are….
I got a deep gold and 3 that are different greenish golds and some browns. I thought they’d make a gorgeous Penny Rug but this picture sure doesn’t show the colors.
We took a drive over to the ESC Trading Company’s warehouse
sale and thought we did quite well for what we spent.
Everything for this sale was $2.00 a foot!!!
They gave you a yard stick and away you went.
I had the small foil covered Santa’s during Christmas for my home show
and sold them all and they had some more plus different ones at the
sale so we ended up with one of each size.
All our little guys cost us $2 each!
We bought 2 different size flags to make some things with. I actually got a bargain on the ones wrapped in plastic…they were $1.05 each but you could buy 12 of them all bundled up so you didn’t have to count them. Well I didn’t realize it until we got home and I checked my receipts…I was charged only $1.05 as a single flag!!! Guess that was my bargain for the day ya think?
Well there you have it! Nothing too tremendous on its own but hopefully when I get some things made up with what I bought and get some of it displayed it might look like something. I’m wishing I had a place to put the bowls upside down stacking against each other.
Gotta find a place first.
Thanks for visiting me today – come back again.
