this has been a long time coming for me...i've admired country roads in old towne orange for so very long and wanted a booth, but god has his timing and his timing is now! i went in about a week ago and met the owner, sue {super nice lady} and she directed me to an available booth...in the second room right on the corner as you enter! i'm so excited, a little nervous and feel really blessed as i've already sold some items on the first day of being there...
my sweet husband took thursday off to help me move in and the dealers we met that day were very welcoming and it was great meeting them.
go check it out...i know you will love it too!
janice, christilynn and i will still be at ivc every month...come and see us this weekend!
