Christmas in October ~ Findlay, Ohio

Hi ya’ll,

Sunday, October 2nd Jamie and I went to Christmas in October in Findlay, Ohio.This is one of our very favorite shows. Love it. Deals galore!

Got a ton of fun treasures…

A new sheep for my arrow hanger. $20.00 instead if $35! YAY!

An adorable kitty and crow. $3.00
Two cute pumpkins. $1.00 each.
Primcat. $1.00

Bat. .50 cents
Bones. $2.00
This little Primcat was a gift from my talented friend Donna. Look at that face! Thank you Donna!
A cute little pill box from Donna.
Little Christmas Primcat. $1.00
This huge cat on a pumpkin for $11.00. Could not beat it. It’s like 2 feet tall.
Another Christmas tree. I needed this like a hole in the head. I’m going to have a tree in every room now for sure! But it was a deal… and you know I love a deal!

This is from my painter lady. It’s a gift for someone for Christmas. :)

So cute!


Another of my painter ladies' pieces. Love it. She is so good!
The front is fall.
The back is winter! Love that! She gave me the mums too.

And here are my HUGE mums. I wait to buy these at Findlay every year. They are HUGE. Just HUGE. I bought two and Jamie got one. They filled the whole back of my Jeep. They are only $5.00 a piece there!!  Deals!
I also bought 3 pumpkins and about 20 small gourds for $10.00.
This is not a picture of them… this is a pic Mr. Primcat took of pumpkins in our neighbors patch. Very artsy.
I’ll show you the real gourds in the fall in the kitchen post that’s coming soon.
So that was last weekends excursion. Lots of deals.
Today Mr. Primcat, Jamie, Mr. “Soon to be” Jamie and I are are headed to Waynesville on the bikes for the Sauerkraut Festival. And to meet Cindy from Cynthia Lee Designs! Yay! I love meeting blogger friends!
Until next time…
Carmen and the Primcats

Love your goodies from the Findlay show. Nice weekend for the Kraut festival and beautiful temps for a bike ride. We just sold our Harley a few months back. The hubs is disabled now and can't ride. Sad to see it go.
Have a great day.
Country at heart

Well, I love the Christmas tree, the Ohio State Buckeye chair and the painted crock! Nice stash :o)
It's great you younguns get out and go like you do in the nice weather. Be careful on your next trip ridin those motorcycles. Sadly enough you have to be the ones to watch out for the other drivers.
