Holly Day Market -- Lexington KY

Hello from beautiful Lexington KY! We got a late start from Springfield on Tuesday. We had hoped to leave by 1 p.m. and it was 3:30 when we finally got out of town. We expected the trip to last about 8 hours, but, due to Cheri's Starbuck's addiction, the trip took about 10 hours as we drove around Rolla and St. Louis looking for a Starbuck's.

We had a new addition to the SUV for this trip -- a cargo carrier. We always fill the SUV to the brim and this was a good alternative to towing a trailer. The only problem was that the SUV was still so full that I didn't have space to put a paper bag and had to leave my little hot pot at home. Can you believe that? We won't be buying much.

The Junior League opened their Holly Day Market last night with a great preview party. There were lots of people and they enjoyed the live band and great food as they perused the many offerings available.
We worked really hard on our booth setup. Just when we think we have all the kinks worked out we change something. See our new addition -- we are so pleased with our new lighted glass case. It really showcases Cheri's work. The display case travels in its own very large suitcase and weighs 85 pounds! Cheri has gotten a lot of weight lifting in!!!
Here are a few pictures from the show and we'll keep you updated on what's going on. Have a great day!
