I took a trip with ArtisticEdition to the ‘Grove this weekend to check out a Women of Today sale. It was an interesting experience, since the one and only time I did a Women of Today sale as a vendor it, well, sucked. Made a wopping $10 and drove and hour and a half to do it. Yippy. Anyway, this one seemed to be doing far better than that one, so I was glad for the vendors.
We went to see our fellow HandmadeMN (the new official name of the Minnesota Etsy Street Team) mate, XOHandworks. I gotta say, I’m SO glad we did. She has a new toy, and I truly can’t wait to try it out again.
She bought a gumball machine on ebay, and has filled it with lots of little goodies. Magnets, push pins, charms, and some special treats. I wish I would have gotten a picture of the machine, because I’m insanely jealous. You can see the machine here! It makes me want to hunt down my sister’s old gumball machine and steal it.
I will absolutely be bringing a pocketful of quarters to every show I vend or attend. There’s something thrilling about a gumball machine. You never know what you’re going to get, and it’s always going to bring a smile to your face.
