The Peddler Show
So, Friday night was my first night away from Gabe in a long time. I can't remember when the last time was that I got to go out without him or Bill for that matter. We did have a date night a week or so back but other than that...it has been awhile. Well, Sue & I ventured out to The Peddler Show. Midland doesn't ever have very many things going on so I saw this ad on TV for this event so I figured we would go pay our 5 bucks and go check it out. Well, needless to say it was good to get out but what I was expecting, booths filled with inexpensive crafts or handmade items turned out to be this over-priced boutique type show. It was nice if you wanted to pay 45.00 for a personalized tote bag! They had a ton of Jewelry tables set up-some reasonably priced others were not. They also had a ton of booths that sold clothes...you know the bedazzler kind...nothing I would ever wear or pay 75.00 for. Ha! I was able to come across a booth that sold baby items (along with 4 or 5 other booths that sold very similar if not the same things) cute little bloomers that you could get personalized. I ventured out and paid for the cute little bloomers for Lily so her diaper doesn't hang out under her dresses. I was also able to come across a few little things for fall but other than that...it was a short, kid-free evening out. We ended up meeting Bill & Gabe for ice cream later on...taking a 3 year old out to a restaurant close to bed time is never a very fun ending to an evening.
