CELEBRATE . . . indeed!! The 20th annual Fall Lynden Craft & Antique Show was my biggest success ever. I am so very grateful for signs of economic recovery. The turnout was very good and reinforced my decision to continue following my passion. The black & white English porcelain enamel "Ales" sign (shown above) was selected by the San Diego Aerospace Museum Foundation to grace an airplane hangar--wish I could see that!!

Many customers were simply looking for a pleasant way to spend the day, and they were certainly rewarded for that! There was eye candy, real candy, buffalo for the carnivores, apple and nut products for the vegans, the most amazing crafts and plants, soaps and potions, holiday gift items, beautiful and charming music spanning generations, a wonderful cafe with coffee bar, soups, salads, desserts, a consignment shop's fashion show . . and--my favorite, of course--ANTIQUES & VINTAGE treasures to explore!

To think that Judy & Trudy have been producing this show for 20 years is a testament to its popularity. It's charming, old-fashioned, and easy-going! Friends gather to meet friends every six months for these shows . . . and I always look forward to greeting them with a new experience to savor!!

In a world full of chaos and change, it's reassuring to look forward to an event that is grounded in family values and good, kind people. I'm sorry not to have more photos available, but it was so busy there was no time for me to run around (and when I could, I just wanted to sit down for awhile!!!).

Only two days to get ready for the upcoming Palmer-Wirfs Portland Expo.

Find me in Hall E . . . Section C, booths 24 & 25!!

Thanks for checking in with ORMOLULU. Hope to see you soon!!!

I am so glad to hear that you had a good show, Debi. I know that you always look forward to the Lynden show! I would sure like to see where that Ale sign gets used. What a find!! I see that you had some of your favorite white "ghost" pumpkins, too:) Wish I lived closer. This sounds like an amazing time and good food!

Love U,
Peggy xoxo
