    We have really awesome vendors joining us this year again. Some who are always here and never ever miss..... and some new ones as well.
    I am giddy with excitement. I ask my self every year.... Why do I do this..... because it is a ton of work! But it is just way to much fun not to do it. Call me crazy.... but at least I have fun.
So here is a sneak peak of some of my vendors...
Shutters and Sand
Three friends put together decades of friendship, their creative energy, love of antiques and art, and tossed in a sprinkle of sand and a couple of seashells..... Shutters And Sand was born!
They have so much fun searching for unique and interesting items and turning them into beautiful pieces of art. They specialize is vintage furniture in need of an update with a little paint, decorative home goods including nautical frames, mermaids, garden chairs, decorative shutters, lighted wine bottles and other treasures from the sea. Our furniture includes dry sinks, dressers, beds, side tables, chairs, mirrors and much more...
Simply Amber Company
I am delighted to have a friend join us who is extremely talented and creative. Be sure to check out her web site!                                          
Simply Amber Company started out of my passion and need to create. My goal is to use my talents to design beauty in lifestyle, fashion, and art. Whether I am painting on canvas, decorating my home, or designing some sort of trinket, my aim is for it to have good design, be pleasing to the eye, spark attention, and it almost always must, in some way, be practical… oh the conflict between the practical side of me and the creative!
Growing up, I’ve been surrounded by creativity and ambition. My parents, both entrepreneurs, were constantly tinkering, painting, building, and crafting. It is hard for me to remember a time that there wasn’t a new project or business happening. It is from my parent’s example that I’ve gained the drive and motivation to pursue my passion.
I am married to my best friend, Mike. He is my biggest support and encouragement. He keeps me calm and makes me laugh. He puts up with my endless projects, supplies, ideas, and stress (and he has a few gray hairs to prove it).
My inspiration comes in many forms and when I am inspired, I create. Some creations are still ideas in my head and others are half-done, something-or-others filling up closets and corners in my house. For those projects that I have finished, their completion is often short lived, for inevitably, (much to my husband’s dismay), I will completely undo, redo, or cover up everything I did because I now have a newly inspired project.
I am a wife, daughter, sister, and friend. I am a laugher, a giver, a candy-lover, and sale-shopper. I am imaginative. I am an idea person. I am a doer. I am an artist, designer, and crafter. I am a creator.

Savannah's House..... Is Back
The show doesn't go on unless Savannah's house is here :)
Savannah's House is run by two friends who both love painting vintage, thrifted finds. Suzy Bondoc has been painting furniture and re-purposing thrift finds for many years selling her goods through several small venues, including The Cottonwood House. Florence Deputy is fairly new to the painting scene, but surely not new to the thrill of searching and redoing furniture. Now, together they both encourage the other in trying new venues and ideas.
Just within the year they discovered Annie Sloan Chalk paint! Through avid blog following of Miss Mustard Seed, Suzy and Florence were introduced to a new, revolutionary paint created specifically for furniture. The paint offers a well worn European look that they both love! Through continued workshop and classroom instruction Savannah's house hopes to have continued success in this business venture.
Follow them on Facebook at Savannah's House and find our goods at Odds & Ends in Oxford, PA and at Consign-It Furniture in Kennet Square, PA!

Diane has never missed a show with me! You all love her and her stuff...and her prices are amazing!
Diane Albertson and her husband Ray previously owned a store in Avondale called "Isn't that Cute", and when you walk through her area you will know why they called the store that. You just cant help yourself. You'll pick up something and hear yourself say..."Isn't that Cute".
The gal is crazy about pretty dishes and loves anything with a cottage or Victorian look to it. You never know what she will bring to the show, but you can be guaranteed you'll be saying "Isn't that Cute" when you see it. She has already set aside some pretty glasses and dishes, and some unique furniture items...old chairs, benches, etc.
Be sure to stop by her area and as Diane would tell you-come back both days because there is no way she can bring everything the first day. So she will have lots of surprises for those of you who come back on Saturday.
