Saturday July 16 is the parking lot sale at American Country Mercantile. Because I can't craft full time anymore and because things are a little out of control - I am down sizing my craft room treasures. I am going to have cutter quilts, wool blankets, fabric, handmade items at give away prices, vintage goodies and unfinished projects and more. I am at about 30 boxes so far and I'm not done yet. If you love a deal - vintage goodies, and handmades and to to craft DON'T miss this sale!

What have I been up to?

I have been fixing up a storage room that was in the store.  Now it has wonderful candles, tarts and other goodies. I also made some Uncle Sams and some black dollies. 
And of course you can buy these at American Country Mercantile!

Here are some items I've been working on...

I finished waxing this cupboard this morning. It is made by a very talented craftsman, but painted by me. It is black with barn red on top. It is at the store now and is $159 - maybe it will still be here come Saturday for the sale.
I also painted this little cupboard with rusty panels. It is $32.
I also just finished this nesting box this morning. I had my dad build this one for me based on a real one I have. He made me another one as well - I just have to decide which color to paint it. It is $32.
I am also working on some black dollies I hope to have finished before or by Saturday. Don't know if I'll have a chance to take a picture before then.

I've been hard at work at the store putting together vintage kitchen items. I love the look - so bright and happy - it almost makes up for the sun being so shy this month. If you get a chance take a peek at my blog at to see the great items my vendors have brought in.

Even though I have been hard at work I have found time to make some goodies for the store. This morning I finished these black rabbits wearing vintage baby dresses with old keys around their necks. They can be found at American Country Mercantile. I also have a couple of cute Annies I made for the Grand Opening. You can see them at the store's blog
