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.

Magnet!

Magnet!

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.

  1. I’ve got to say, that vending machine was the coolest thing I’ve ever seen at a show! What an ingenious idea! I’m totally bringing quarters next time. 🙂
