Part 2: Pumpkin-rama, Love when a plan comes together!
We left Trish, just locking up at the Blue Sprinkling Can.
Elise: Wow Trish, you sure got a lot of work done today. Vickie said you were a miracle worker!
Trish: Thanks, but I am sure tired now, though.
(Vickie comes out the door of Vickie's Vintage and sees the Halloween Decor, Trish put up for her).
Vickie: OMG...Trish this is Fab! I love it.....!
Trish: I'm glad you like it...! It's fun doing a big piece like that...I hope it works with your plans for the Halloween Dungeon Shop.
Vickie: It sure does...just a little bit spooky. It will be great to have our basement space utilized for a change. We've worked hard just to get it cleaned and painted down there.
Vickie: Elise will be a big help---we have a lot to do in six days!
Elise: I love Halloween and merchandising, I think this will be fun and not just a job.
Vickie: Well, we will see you tomorrow early and wear grubbies, we have lots of stuff to move and unpack. Last year was a bust for Halloween, so we have plenty of goods to get out!
Trish: I didn't get even half of my Halloween orders...so the center is mostly Fall this year!
Vickie: Trish it looks great....tell me what you have new.
Trish: Well, we have lots of fresh and faux flowers. Lots of grasses and some dried gourds and cool pods.
Trish: you can see the copper and pottery---I found a lot of vintage items for containers. And, I made some pumpkin stacks. We still need to put some Halloween on the tree.
I've put the pots and supplies in the greenhouse along with some house plants.
Everyone seems to want to grow something now. One thing about the pandemic, everyone is sprucing up their homes.
Vickie: You are still bringing in produce, I will need to pick some up tomorrow...I love that brass birdcage!
Elise: Hmmm, fresh corn. My roommates and I are all into fresh vegetables, this will be great. Those beets look scrumptious.
Trish: It's been a strange year...some things are happier now since the temps have finally come down in Chicagoland. The eggplants are finally going bonkers.
Vickie: I like all your pumpkin arrangements. Joe's cat would love to tear those up...LOL.
Trish: Well, the metal would work with your cat...they usually don't pay too much attention to that.
Vickie: I'll get some gourds tomorrow. Everything looks super---oh, do you have any of those Buffalo Checked runners, that would work in my kitchen.
Trish: Yes, and placemats, too, I'm bringing those in tomorrow!
Vickie: Super, good night Trish. Well, Elise, I 'll walk you to the bus stop.
Elise: Sure, bye Trish. Your garden shop looks great, see you tomorrow!
Vickie: And, only six days until
The HALLOWEEN DUNGEON
