CHRISTINE’S CORNER by Christine Pace

FLEA MARKET INVITATION

There will be a community flea market next month, at the Cedar Mountain Community Center. Set up is Friday, September 15th for Saturday’s sales on September 16th. To reserve a table contact Christine Pace at (828) 885-2103. The tables are $15 each. When reserving your table let me know if you want two tables and you’ll be put on a list for a 2nd table if there are extras. You can also email me at: chris_p_artist@yahoo.com. The large brown table in the center will be for “donated” items, with all proceeds going to the community center. “No littles, please, unless they have some value”. Everything that doesn't sell on the community table needs to be boxed up and taken to a resale store by Christine Pace. No exercise equipment, beds, or rusted items will be accepted as a donation. Resale shops will not accept these. I plan to offer never used craft items at my table; grapevine wreaths, decorations, etc. so someone else can make holiday items for themselves or to sell. Each vendor will be responsible for removing what they don’t sell, immediately after the flea market ends. Let’s clean out those attics and make room for more treasures.


AROUND THE HOUSE by Linda Packer Young

We are busy preparing for the See Off flea. The Cedar Mountain Flea will be held while we are away so we are rounding up a lot of stuff for See Off. I priced a few things online and was shocked at how much our wine rack was worth. Using Google (picture find?) I found a high-end dealer who wanted over $1300 for one. We only have one at a fraction of that. Come see it at See Off.


An old friend and classmate (who lives in Texas) happened to visit our hometown in Iowa recently. He sent me a photo of what he thought was the home where I grew up. It was a neighbor’s house. It was very sweet of him to do that though. My childhood home was behind some trees next door. Thanks, Butch. It was the thought that counted. ;-D
