To Market, To Market...

Yesterday we went to the annual Mississippi Market in Jackson, MS.  We love it...it's a relatively close drive and the vendors are typically experienced with professional looking products and the show is easily managed in a few hours...and they fed us YAY!  It's always a nice helping of soul food...fried okra, yes, please?!  Anywho, more than any other year that we've attended, the show was a bit repetitious with embroidered baby things, funny and/or inspirational t-shirts, jewelry, soap and candles.  *rolls eyes* We really had to search for something unique or an item we didn't already stock in the shop. Luckily, I found a few items to add to our accessories, craft items and yes, Christmas!  

Also, we acquired a new bath line, Musee, strictly bath bombs - we are super excited to have found them due to the fact that this is a product category we carried for years successfully until our source unfortunately stopped producing. Honestly, we had just placed the order; I called my mother who had volunteered for shop-watch and she said someone had just called inquiring if we still carried bath bombs.  Yes, yahoo...we do!  I'll load these up in the next week or so to the main website in anticipation of their arrival.

Coming soon to0 is this tremendously fun chevron burlap.  I ordered it in January right when they began marketing it and it never showed up...*fingers crossed* this makes it and in the colors I picked!

And here's my first Christmas purchase.  I'm reallllly into this whole woodland folk winter scene thing.  I hope everyone else will be too.  Next month we will pass thru Atlanta to firm up our holiday purchases and of course more new lines to stock up the shop!
