Saturday in Lincoln

This morning Paige and I got up early and hopped in the car for a one hour drive to Lincoln, NE. Our first stop was St. Mark's Methodist Church where a Craft Fair was going on today. There was one spot I was heading for and that was Kindra's booth. I wanted to get there right when it opened so I could snatch those stacking boxes she posted on her blog 3 Guys, A Girl, and a Prim Place the other day. We ended up getting there a little after the craft fair had started and I was a bit worried they'd be gone. I found her booth pretty quick and there was Kindra and her mom and the boxes ! Yeah ! Kindra is such a sweet lady and I am so glad I got to meet her in person. It was very crowded, so we didn't get to visit for long. She had so many great things for sale~ she and her mom make such wonderful prims ! I bought a red light up house, the stacking boxes, and a little cross stitch. I LOVE them all and found spots for them right when I got home. It was so good to meet ya Kindra ! Then we left and headed for Aunt Patty's Attic. That store has so many wonderful things I got overwhelmed looking at it all . Check out their blog here. I only chose 2 things to buy even though I saw so many things that I wanted. I'm sure I'll be back there soon.I'll post pictures of what I bought there later, because I'm not quite finished with part of it. We decided to go on home after that~ all my money was spent. Next time we'll stop by the other store that we ended up not going to today called Plum Creek Gifts . Here are some pictures from today!

Cute robin we saw as we were leaving for Lincoln. It was a very Springy day today. Hurray !

Oh Janae~ I am so jealous! I live in Lincoln and was supposed to be at the same craft show to meet Kindra too and see all of her wonderful prims! But I woke up this morning with a stomach bug and couldn't go! :( You got some wonderful things! I love that stitchery! I am going to see her booth next weekend at the next show! And Aunt Pattys Attic is where I worked for four years! Isn't it a wonderful huge prim shop! You are right it is overwhelming and a lot to take in!I had fun looking at all of your pictures beings I couldn't be there in person! Thank you for showing me Kindra's booth! :) Take care. ~Sarah~

Kindra said...

Hi Janae! I just emailed ya! :) Thanks for all your kind words and it is sure fun to see my prims in your beautiful home. It was so fun to meet you and hope to see you soon! I think a prim get together in the near future would be fun! Great pics!

Lisa said...

WOW - That was fun looking at all of those wonderful pictures and those prim goodies are so nice. I love craft shows, but we don't have a whole lot of them around me...especially nice ones like these.

I had fun looking at the pictues and your post was wonderful.
I clicked on all the pictures and they enlarged and I felt like I was in the shops looking around!

Hi Janae,
Love looking at all the pictures you shared of Kindra's booth and of Patty's Attic. Everything you got looks wonderful where you displayed them.
We don't have many good Spring craft show here...but we have lots in the Fall. Can't wait to get to go to some.

How wonderful that you and Kindra were able to meet each other! Kindra's booth would have been my favorite, I know! I LOVE all the things you bought from her! I've had my eye on that it!

It sounds like a wonderful day for you and Paige! Aren't daughters wonderful for tagging along on our adventures!

Have a great Sunday!

Goat Creek Grandma said...

Hi Janae, It sounds as if you and your daughter had a wonderful day. The things you picked up from Kindra's booth look great! I could sure use some of my blogger friends to help me decorate my house when we get there. I am horrible when it comes to that sort of thing.

Take Care,

I was just telling Kindra that the two of you are my favorite blog very talented the two of you are!
How wonderful that you two were able to meet in person! It probably seemed that you knew eachother forever!
The items you bought look wonderful, Kindra and her Mom are great craftswomen.
Have a good weekend!

Jayne said...

OMG! I would have died and gone to heaven! I don't think I have ever seen a craft show like this. We don't even have spring shows around here. Went to the Mini Bazaar in Idaho yesterday which is the closest thing and walked out with nothing! Hope to see her leftovers in Etsy! Love the wall box Janae and the stitchery is great! Jayne

Colleen said...

I'm so jealous, Janae! And SO GLAD that you got to meet Kindra in person. She is such a sweetheart and so talented. And I love all of the goodies you brought home with you. What a wonderful way to spend a Saturday...
