Ms Matilda and Keith

My daughter, Heather, amazingly arranged a private buying for us with a wonderful retired couple in the Phoenix area. 

They were always going to open a shop, but never quite got around to doing it…

There were years and years of accumulation from Missouri and Phoenix in two garages, a shed, inside as well as outside their home….

      How cool was that!!

We enjoyed hours and hours of no stress buying from this wonderful couple, Ed and Carol.

I love that kind of shopping...I'd rather pay more and have less profit but have *way* more fun! Great finds!

Hey Gale, it looks like you are master packers there. I love a full truck bed of junk, don't you. Too bad my husband doesn't love it! It sounds like this shopping trip was the best. Good luck at your upcoming show!
