AROUND THE HOUSE by Linda Packer Young
Because we will be gone for Cedar Mountains Flea in September we decided to get tables at the
See Off Flea last weekend. We had a great time and got to know some more folks. One vendor and my honey discovered they were both born in Pittsburgh and spent a lot of time talking about that. We sold enough stuff to pay for our 2 tables and then some. Habitat got a lot of really good things from us and others though.
