What stuck out the most at this sale were a few things. The nicest older fella visited my table twice because he wanted to look at all of my upcycled magnets. To make these, I head to my favourite thrift shops that save me their vintage childrens books that are otherwise on their way to the trash. I use a sealer on the images I cut out, adhere them to printed cardstock and stick neodymium magnets on the backs. He bought a few from vintage Disney books and we had a neat conversation about childrens storybooks/films now vs. decades ago.
I later met a nice German father and his little girl who came to Canada from Germany. I speak German near fluently and caught the little lady counting her coins in German, it was somethin'. We talked about Steinbach and other small towns in Manitoba with German communities, which reminded me I need to visit the MCC in Steinbach, because they have the best cardigans.
I'm super pleased with the turnout, the stellar marketing and organization of the show, and the venue the sale was held at. The weather was the best Winnipeg's had this year and I'm looking forward to the next WEST sale.

More photos will be up at the WEST blog, here, shortly. Hope everyone's digging this bitchin' weather, I know today desperately calls for a bike ride.
