This week my days are full of phone calls and running all over the place getting ready for Bella Rustina next weekend. Yesterday I had the ACs checked in the old WalMart and they are blowing cold, which is a huge relief since the building has been sitting for a year. I took a leaf blower and removed a bunch of debris from the cart storage area and will pressure wash the windows as soon as I can borrow a pressure washer. Next week I plan to rent a lift, which I’ve never done before, and hang a banner on the outside of the building and hang extra lighting in darker areas inside. I’ll be going on Channel 7’s Good Afternoon Arkansas on Tuesday and then KARK 4 Today’s morning show next Thursday so I’ve been meeting exhibitors to gather different items to take on air. Now I need to find somewhere to buy pumpkins, corn stalks, etc. One nursery told me they were holding off on ordering pumpkins, etc, until it cools down. If you’ve seen any place with pumpkins or corn stalks for sale locally, please let me know.

I’ve also found some great things on Facebook Marketplace. On Sunday, when it was raining like crazy on and off, I picked up a couple things on my way to visit my parents in Searcy. I stopped in podunk nowhere in Ward to pick up some neat benches and then in McRae to get a fabulous 16-hole chicken nesting box. It’s the real deal – all metal, even the bottoms of each cubby. It even has hangers to hang it on the wall! It was pouring rain when I drove up so I told the owner I’d meeting him at the door, pay him, and “throw the nester in the back of my truck”. I’m so glad he insisted on helping because it’s so heavy! I love it – I plan to put hay and pumpkins in the cubbies and deck it out for Fall at Bella Rustina.

I hope you all have a wonderful Labor Day weekend. Here are the sales I know about for this weekend:
