Shopping at the 2009 Specialty – Part 1

Every year since 1999, I have done a series called Shopping at the Specialty after I return from the Specialty. I know that there are a huge amount of Berner Lovers who wish they could have attended the Specialty and been able to shop at the booths for really neat Berner items. In the shopping series, I feature one of the vendors each day until each vendor has been reviewed. This year I won’t have a website with the photos because I have my webmasters all busy with other fundraisers, so I am going to do it as a blog! There will be photos of each of the booths along with contact information and information about the items they carry. When you shop at the vendors, be sure to let them know that you came to them from the Shopping at the 2009 Specialty series. Each vendor has donated an item to the Berner-Garde Fundraiser and Free Ticket Gift Bonanza. LET THE SHOPPING BEGIN!!!

Here is the blog address to view the photos and see the vendor information:

This was a new vendor this year and they had some wonderful Berner items!!! They carry custom hand-crafted Bernese Mt. Dog jewelry with extra sparkling Swarovski Crystals and Pearls. Timberlake's booth featured excellent quality zipper pulls and bracelets adorned with life-like Bernese Mt. Dog charms. Some customers liked items that matched their cloths or jackets, while others preferred ones made in the berner colors. The hardest part was choosing a color as the variety was huge. If a bracelet was the wrong size, Kelly and Teena would alter them for a custom fit. They have donated a wonderful triple strand Swarovski Crystal and white Pearl bracelet with Berner charm to the Berner-Garde Fundraiser.
