Vendor Highlights

Okay, first things first. Be sure to enter our latest giveaway now! (here) Charla and I are walking around glassy-eyed from trying to get set up - we've only got an itty bitty bit of time before the show starts! But, let me tell you, there is so much amazing, unique, one-of-a-kind (and on and on with the positive adjectives) stuff! Who wouldn't want to win a $25.00 gift certificate for our boutique?

I'm just going to let you in on a few of our wonderful vendors right now, but I'll share more tonight.

We are so excited to have Purs'nal Pal with us this time around. You can check out their website here. These two ladies, Wendy Kamahele and Donna Dewey, have designed some fabulous
purse organizers that are so great in so many ways.

If you are a gal with a dozen (give or take a few) purses or someone like me who uses the same one until it needs to be buried - you need one of these. You put all your necessities into one of these babies and then all you have to do when you want to change your purse is take this Purs'nal Pal, pop it into your choice of purse for the moment, and you are ready to run. For me - a carrier of the basic black, I-don't-want-to-spend-another-dime-on-another-purse - kind of girl, my Purs'nal Pal may not change homes very frequently, but I can find what I need so easily. I bought mine a couple of years ago and I love it! You would love one too. You will find them at the top of the stairs at the boutique. Just one more quick word, I've only met Wendy of Purs'nal Pal so far, but wow, what a nice, fun, sweet, generous person she is. I'm not only grateful to Purs'nal Pal for the tidier state of my purse, but because it allowed Charla and me to meet Wendy (and I'm looking forward to meeting Donna).

Right by the purse organizers, you will find some truly unique purses made by one of our all-time favorite crafters, Pam Newman. Pam is one of those people who can put things together - be it a home or an outfit or a craft - in a way no one else would think of and the end result is always gold. Also, for you Utah fans out there (I know, sorry about that last game!) Pam and her hubby, Scott, have written a poem that will please you to no end. It goes with some red Christmas stockings they've also put into the show. Just know - there are limited quantities.

If your family is anything like mine, we seem to get more than our fair share of cuts and scrapes. Just one problem -- several of us are allergic to the traditional over the counter anti-bacterial ointments. Lucky for us, my sister-in-law Becky Glauser, makes some fabulous stuff she calls Owie Be Gone. This is a truly good remedy. She also makes lip balms and another great fix-it, Chap Be Gone, for those dry winter hands that are a'coming. Grab yourself some at the boutique. Becky also does some nice grape-vine wreaths and fairy ornaments. And by the way, Becky is another winner in the great person category - fun, pleasant to spend time with, oh-so-kind, and a great cook, too!

Opening day (Wednesday) at the boutique will be the first of some fun 30-year-celebrations. It's Mother/Daughter day. If you bring your mothers or your daughters with you to the show, each of you will have the opportunity to enter a prize drawing to be done at 7 p.m. (you need not be present to win). Charla and I had some fun times this summer shopping around for prizes and we've also had Purs'nal Pal offer one of their purse organizers as a prize. Don't miss it!

I'll be posting again tonight - if I can keep my eyes open long enough. I'll be announcing the boutique gift certificate winner! Check back for Thursdays celebration.

It's all so exciting!
