Our AC saga continues. Last Friday, after almost 2 weeks of no AC upstairs, the HVAC technician arrived with the supposed part that would fix our issue. He wanted to test the old part first, so he asked me to turn the system on. I kid you not, the AC came on and worked beautifully. It has literally worked perfectly until about 30 minutes ago. If the technician would have tested the part the first time he came, he could have diagnosed it correctly. He ordered the wrong part and now we’re waiting on his next guess that will fix our AC problems. I’m considering the AC coming on a huge blessing because it allowed me to get a few good night’s sleep before Bella Rustina this weekend. I’ll spend the night at the Conway Expo Center going forward sleeping on a mat on the concrete floor for maybe 30 minutes to a couple hours each night. There’s so much to do to get ready for the show that can’t be done ahead of time.

Exhibitors began loading in today and they did not disappoint! I didn’t realize just how many all-stars we have at this show until they started loading in today and I have a bunch more coming in Thursday. This weekend’s Bella Rustina will be the largest yet – almost 220 booths inside the air-conditioned Conway Expo Center and over 30 booths in the open-air pavilion. 

I’ll post a bunch more preview photos on the Bella Rustina Facebook page Thursday night. You can buy Friday’s early buying tickets ($8 at the door) at a discount on Eventbrite for $5.93 here: https://bellarustina.com/tickets/  Thanks in advance to those who come out and support Bella Rustina and its 130+ small businesses who will set up.

There are some great estate sales going on this weekend too. Here’s what I know:
