The Wheels on the Bus

This is the bus we are taking….hope you can go! (just kidding)

I just love LTD 7’s customers…every one of you. I was sitting in my office a few days ago and I had an idea. I wasn’t sure it would fly, so I tossed it out on Facebook for you to give me some feedback and the response was overwhelmingly positive. Thank you for always being a post away and for giving me your opinions and thoughts. It helps me tremendously to make LTD 7 “ours.”

For those of you who missed the post I am referring to, I thought that maybe—just maybe—a bus trip to Ohio this fall to shop the Country Living Fair would be SO much fun. LTD 7 would organize the trip…the transportation, the tickets, the hotel and a meal or two for all of us!  All you would have to do is show up! We would even arrange transportation for anything you purchase! Is that a fun idea or what?


I am still looking into the idea and working with some people to see if we can pull this off, so bear with me. If for some reason we can’t get a tour together this fall, we can always look into other venues and locations at a future date. If you want to be notified as we make progress and to all the details of the trip…please send your email to

“Presented by Country Living Magazine, the event offers visitors the opportunity to fully experience the “Country Living” lifestyle and meet the editors of Country Living in a charming 19th century village setting. A great big show and sale of antiques, vintage, “Made in America” crafts, art, furniture, home decor, handcrafted clothing and jewelry and so much more. Meet the editors of Country Living Magazine and their guests, attend seminars and how-to’s, see artisan demonstrations, shop the Harvest & Gourmet Market, and gather ideas and inspiration.”

You’re going right?

There are great shopping options, with over 200 booths of antiques, vintage, upcycled and hand-crafted goods. Additional features include Country Living’s kitchen and main stages with cooking demos, and presentations by the editors and their guests. Plus, book signings and crafting and how-to demonstrations throughout the fair.

Live Music will be performed by the Blue Water Ramblers and Thomas Wesley Stern.

Let me know in the comments what you think. I do think I have enough interest to at least bring you more information and at this point, the pickins’ look very good indeed! Check out the list of vendors I have included below the blog post! Mind you—you are going to have to scroll a looooong time to get to the bottom of this awesome list!  What do you say we start planning and dreaming and working on the details to make LTD 7’s best shopping tour of 2015 a reality? I sense a tradition in the making…don’t you?


I will keep you posted! Thanks for checking in and for always sharing your thoughts with me! I couldn’t do all this dreaming without you!

Don’t forget to scroll through the vendor list and have a stupendous week! Stop in soon! The coffee is on us!

Living the Dream,
