Getting Ready For The Loose Caboose




Busy week ahead gathering up all the lil' things I have been painting, stitching, and hooking. Sad to say but Oklahoma doesn't have a lot of handmade craft fairs anymore. I have always enjoyed going to the Loose Caboose Festival in downtown Purcell, Oklahoma. There is a lot of history just on Main Street. There are several antique shops that once were used as a hotel, theatre, and department stores.
Purcell was founded as a railroad town in 1887. Part of Main street still has the original brick roads.

This coming Saturday, September 3rd....Main Street will be transformed into a place with live music, food, and handmade crafts. So if your in the area we would love for you to stop by!

The weathermen are forecasting a COLD front coming this way....we may just drop down into the 80's sometime next week. I sure hope so we are ready for some cooler days.

Happy Trails....Ginger

I hope you get a cold front and these days are almost over. I think it sounds like a lot of fun. A good way to start September.

Hi Ginger,
I wished I lived closer those festivities sound awesome!
A couple of weeks ago we thought the 80's was a cool front too! LOL! It's been better here now even getting into the 50's at night....... can't believe I'll be putting an extra blanket on the bed soon... sigh...
I mailed your pattern this A.M. so be checking the pony express in the next couple of days :))
Good luck with your show and above all have fun!!

Oh Ginger, that sounds like SO much fun! I adore old main streets. I looked up Purcell and it is 2 hrs and 40 min away from me. I'm gonna try but I don't know yet what all we have going on. I'm thinking I could probably find your booth if I do happen to come... if it's anything like the things you post on here. If not, then best wishes with it!!

Yes, I was looking at the weather for the upcoming week... so nice to see 80's instead of 100's and high 90's!

Hi Ginger,
I don't think my comment made it through! Testing to see if this one does.
