To Market! To Market!

Here it is.....

{and guess who won best booth voted on by all the vendors....moi!
I was honored to be among such an elite group of artists. Every booth was to die for. Seriously!}

The booth turned out exactly how I pictured it in my head....and sketched it on paper!
Dave + I built the red frame and Carla + I built the cream bench and turquoise crate.

The lighting in this venue was my only complaint. It was poor. So these are the best pictures I could come up with. Thank you 'fill light' in Picasa.

You can see in this picture above things had already started selling and it was just 4:00 pm.
The magnetic/chalkboard recipe holder frames sold out Friday night.
I'm working on more to put online!

I received such great positive feedback about my range of products and loved hearing people say that they just wanted to live in my booth....or....buy one of everything!

More tomorrow on all the sweet vendors I met!
And what I purchased at the market.

I'm working on taking inventory now to get my shop re-opened with all my new product.
Well...what I have left!!

Thank you for your well wishes and encouragement!
And, thank you, to all you shoppers who showed up and made my first big debut
a complete success.

  14. I'm beyond sad that I didn't make it down there. I woke up with a sore throat and didn't want to get my friends twin baby girls (who was going to come with me) sick and Julian was in the beginnings of a runny/snot filled nose.
