(earrings from Unexpected Elegance at Horton's French Flea Market.)
And guess what's in the sacks!
Commercial BreakI have honey for sale for those of you who live near me. I don't mail it because shipping is almost as expensive as the honey. I don't use chemicals on my hives and I don't add anything to the honey. It is raw, unprocessed, right out of the hive into the jar honey.
1 pound squeeze bottles are $6.00, and quart jars are $18.00
SO you are thinking...but what does that 'stuff' all have in common? What's in the bags?
I'm not going to leave you hanging......completely.
All of the above.....green beans, alpaca roving, blueberries, cukes & zukes, and earrings, were all items people TRADED me for honey! I have never had a year where so many people wanted to trade, but I have found it to be a lot of fun!
(actually, the cukes and zukes were free, he traded the green beans, and there was enough to freeze 17 -2 cup bags, plus cook up a mess of them. And the blueberries....yum.....5 pounds....gone in three days. I froze one bag and we ate the rest!)
And in the bags....
"Well, I have some material that would match that yarn, your camper, in that checked pattern. You could make curtains out of it for your camper. Do you want it?"
Huge excitement for me! "YEEESSSS! I will pay you for it."
"No. You can have it. I didn't know what I was going to do with it. Now I know."
I traded her some honey for it.
And the other bag...well it deserves a post of it's own. It just does.
