The Flea Market

Hope this update finds all of you well. We've had a busy summer so far. Jacob makes rocking chairs "for fun", as he calls it. And each week we load them up on the wagon and take them into Shipshe for the flea market. It's been quite time cunsuming, and even though it is good for the children to learn the value of work, how to make change, etc., it can be tiring. It is one of the largest flea markets in the country and tourists come all over for Amish "finds". I've also been down to help Dorretta Sue on Mondays. She has a roadside bakery out on the Middlbury-Shipshe road and I help her bake on Mondays. It's not much, but the extra money is always welcomed. If any of you are out at the flea market, stop in and see us!

What's keeping you busy this summer?

God Bless,

just my kids keep me busy. the nice thing is that during summer other moms have more freedom to do things. then i can do more things with people. by the way, i love the flea market, but i won't be able to come this year. maybe next year, or the year after.

I won't be able to make the Shipshe Flea Market this year, but I have been traveling to different city events and festivals selling our wares. There are plenty of finds at the craft booths.

Have you tried the kettle corn there? My cousin Betty runs that booth.
