Then it was another couple of hours driving to Ripon, Wisconsin, to visit "A Simpler Time" (another shop I'd seen advertised) and stock up on some primitives. Not having many shops like this back home, I need to get my fix whenever I can! Check them out at http://www.simplertime.com.
I spent the night in Oshkosh (by gosh!) and this morning drove to Menasha, Wisconsin, to check out "Primitive Gatherings", another Top 10 Quilt Shop. Lisa (the owner) has bought several of my patterns over the years and I found some of them there. Plus so much good stuff I could hardly stand it! You can check out her shop at http://www.primitivegatherings.us/the-store.html.
I could have spent hours in that shop but I needed to head back to Minneapolis to set up for Market. Here are some of the goodies I'm bringing home.
