Country Spirit - What a blast!

Wow! The Country Spirit Antique Show in Arcola this past weekend was SO much fun! @e were blown away at the quality of the vendors' merchandise. Plus they were just about the nicest bunch you'd ever want to meet! We all enjoyed each other's company all weekend long.
On Friday night the crowd poured in for the early buying session. You've never seen such happy folks! Lots of friends from the other shows visited too and that's always nice.
By Saturday morning, the booths were restocked and the gates opened again -- with the first 50 receiving some special treats from Country Spirit. Folks were still finding treasures late in the day and we noticed lots of people making their second and even third visit to the show.
On both days we had Mike Anderson's amazing dulcimer skills to entertain - thanks again, Mike! And the booth from "A Primitive Place" magazine was a huge hit -- photos and autographs all day long! There will be lots of happy new subscribers waiting anxiously for the Summer issue -- I know we are! Thanks to Kristine Berg-Doss and her staff for supporting the show!
If you missed it -- or even if you just want to relive it -- there will be tons of photos posted on the show website in the coming days.
Mark your calendars now because we can't wait and our terrific bunch of dealers are going to be out hunting fresh merchandise all spring and summer to stock up for our next show on November 11 & 12!
