Our booth this year:
If you look really close you'll see Moobie Grace herself! She was such a trooper! She was up at 4:45 a.m. (and yes, I did write that down). Her and I had my van unloaded by ourselves before my oldest or husband even showed up! Now, maybe she moved so efficiently because of the anticipated "end of the day reward!" Yes, I bribed her with a treat in exchange for manual labor...WHATEVER...you know you've done it too! :) I did catch a few looks when I kept calling her "Moobie", and I had to explain more than once...
New photography banners we used instead of the tent side panels. Worked like a charm! Love that we still had a little privacy, yet keep the tent from being too dark and HOT! Also my new suitcase (that still reeks of "oldness" after a week of sitting out in the sun airing out and a can of odor out)...no one complained thankfully. I wish I would have thought to take a few close ups of the assemblage necklaces I had...they seemed to sell pretty quickly! I was really surprised as this isn't exactly a shabby/boho/vintage crowd. I did however get one...
Not the best photograph (I'm guilty of fiddling with Pic Monkey) Vintage silver plated spoon bowl, hand stamped and stitched on to a shabby, wide fabric cuff, with crocheted trim and vintage buttons/fabrics. I LOVE making these, and will list the 3 I have left in my Etsy store some time this week!
Just a snapshot of an array of necklaces
Upcycled easel with our store sign...which needs to be updated!
Awesome oval window frame, repurposed in to a LARGE earring display. It sits on the corner of our booth, and draws people in...mission accomplished!
A few of the antique silverware hooks made by my sweet husband.
All, in all, it was a success! Granted, there were obstacles to overcome, but despite the all day drizzle, sales were better than I expected, I made a few new contacts, and we all came home exhausted, but happy!
See you next year Farmville!!!
