I have participated in only one other market, and although it was lots of fun, it was also lots of WORK! However, somewhat like childbirth, I tended to forget the WORK and only remember the FUN! (That may be why I have six kids!)
It was only with the help of a patient husband, a supportive sister, a creative neighbor, and an encouraging teenage daughter that I made it there! So without further ado, here are some pictures of the Red Hen Home tent!
Thankfully the above-mentioned sister had a canopy I could borrow. There’s no way we could have survived a hot July day without it! We were supposed to have a 10x10 space…I’m glad we were on a corner, because we overstretched a little (OK…a lot!)
Last market, I didn’t know what to write on the chalkboards I had for sale! I swiped “You should have bought it when you first saw it!” from another market I saw through the blogs! It was perfect.
The organizers didn’t want garish advertising…but I thought my cupboard door sign was very tasteful! This time I held on to it…and yes, there were a couple of people who wanted to buy it!
Above is one of my favorite cupboard door signs ever…it says “I just want to make beautiful things even if nobody cares.”
What do you think of the giant pink eyeglasses? The lettering along the top says, “I like to look at life thru rose-colored glasses.”
My World Traveler suitcase is above on the right. It came home with me (go figure!). However, I have a sister in Seattle who’d really like me to figure out a way to send it to her!
Watch for more pictures of this French bench to appear in the near future!
After my first clock table, I was dying to do a coffee-table sized one. Luck was with me, and I found one!
Loved the aqua-and-white mirror above. It used to have a dark brown outer frame with a gold-ish middle section. I think it looks much better in lighter colors!
The pink pieces above are two matching headboards and footboards. I wish my two youngest daughters had a bigger room so I could have used them instead of a bunkbed!
My “Buy Vintage” sign got bought…<sigh>
Yep, there’s another French coffee table in there. A cute couple drove two hours one way to buy it (bless them!), and they also left with the bench above, and the bar stools! I love them.
That’s a French postcard table above…I will show that to you later as well.
Thanks for visiting with me!
