  • Esmeralda will provide table massages for $1 a minute starting at 10 minutes to 60 on Saturday. Payment should be made directly
    to her.


  • A Swap Table - one person's junk is another's treasure. Items left over will be donated to Lifespring, a women's shelter in Aurora.

  • Scrap Re-Sale Table - You can bring up to 10 items to sell of your own stock. (10 items per person is the maximum you can sell in a weekend.) We all have 'extra' scrapbooking and craft items that we don't want to just give to the swap table, yet we have no use for it since we have multiples. :-) Well, go ahead and price it along with your initials on it and place it on our designated table! If it sells, you get the cash and if not, you will take it home at the end of the weekend. Pretty simple! Please do not sell any current Creative Memories or Our Memories For Life items. Thank you!
