Ready set go!

So I think we are all set for the Barrie  Kempenfest 2010!  The new products are finished, mostly loaded in trailer now, so all we need is a weekend filled with sunshine and we will be all set!  If you have never been its a must see over 3.5kms of vendors offering handcrafted art!

The past few weeks have been rather hectic with the  summer Bracebridge show, which we were fortunate to have a wonderfully dry weekend, enjoyed by customers and vendors alike.

However, I have been very busy trying to get ready for not only Kempenfest but the CGTA Gift show in Toronto August 8th to 12th.  This show is a little different to get ready for as its wholesale order writing , open to trade only, which makes it a little different to prepare for.  I’m once again very fortunate to have my mom Linda not only help with set up but also with the show itself.  Make no mistake tho, sometimes a little extra help is needed now and then, not to mention a little extra muscle too.   I’ve been very blessed to have the help of good friends who at every One of a Kind show and CGTA show set up the booth construction itself, and to think I met them thro Saltbox business……just one of those instances where business can give gifts of many forms!  I think one of my favorite things that I’ve received thro both businesses is the opportunities to meet really great people, whether they are fellow vendors or customers that have turned into life long  friends!  That’s what makes it all worth while right!

Regardless of where in the province we are doing shows, The Plant Place  is business as usual.  Its a great time to visit the garden center and take advantage of  all the plant  material on sale…. no plants excluded…there are awesome deals to be had!  Our garden center consists of much more then shrubs and plants tho……..we have a truly unique selection of wrought iron, bird houses, cast iron, and home and  garden decor galore……..new pieces arrive weekly!

If you haven’t visited Kincardine before you are in for a treat! The lake shore town offers great food,  the best sunsets and not to mention our famous piped marching band who is joined by 100’s of locals and visitors alike every Saturday night down main street.

Don’t forget to take a moment to check out my new pieces, that have just been introduced to the website product catalogue.

Hopefully see you soon!
