Sweat and Sales

Just a few quick photos from my show, before I crash.  It was a warm (hot) sunny day. I drank tons of water, but only had one bathroom break.  Seriously, it all came out in sweat.  I felt like jumping in the fountain.

I intentionally took mostly small portable items, and I'm so glad I did.  They sold well. A very sweet customer was thrilled to get my vintage miniature chest.

My terracotta bust was one of the first things to sell.  The piece she's sitting in went right along with her.

My friend Bea was set up next to me.  She loved her, but someone else got her.  Stop making that face Bea.

On the other side was my friend Joy (Savvycityfarmer).

Of course she had a great display.

Sales were steady all day for me.  I didn't take enough photos, but what else is new?

There were some very creative souls set up.  Look at this chair from Cottage Industries,

and Suzi Schmidt's bejeweled designs.

Hubby and I drove home sweaty, and I'm still thinking I should have jumped in.

Getting some rest now.  See ya soon.


  1. Looks great. I would have wanted to jump in that fountain too!

  2. I KNOW how hot it was! Don't envy you being out there, but glad you had a good sale day!

  3. Love your displays Rosemary!!! I would have bought that bust as well. So happy you did well!


  4. Rosemary how fun, and to have great neighbors for the show! I'm glad it was a success even though it was sweltering (here too)

    I think you will like my new Giveaway from Royal Design Stencils..

  5. Glad you had a good day! I always enjoy when you share photos from the shows.

  6. Beautiful booth! I'm so happy you were successful - and that you didn't get arrested for swimming in the fountain...

  7. Lovely things, Rosemary! You did good with pictures! : ) I'm glad to hear you had another successful sale. Yes, that fountain would have looked enticing here, too, since it seems the humidity is back again.

  8. It looks like a very nice show. Wish it was in my area. We had Brimfield Antiques this past weekend and it was just too hot to be out in the sun. Dealers had umbrella's and tents so it helped them. Those that were buying had to be in the sun. I went antiquing but stayed within the stores. Love that fountain...enjoy your rest..

  9. okay ... so I may have to 'steal your photos!!
    the sun was reflecting in our booth and could not get the angle right for pictures

    it's an honor to 'sell' next to you ... how did I miss the herbs de provence box???

    so happy for your steady sales!!
    there is an art to all of this you know!

    rest up and carry on

  10. Sweet sweet sweet! Yes, get some rest girl!

  11. Jump in that fountain next time. I get in our sprinklers all the time and need to in this heat. Your smalls are lovely especially the bust. I cannot lift much furniture and do not buy much for that reason. Rest up.

  12. Congrats on another great sale day -- where was it at? Must have missed this if you mentioned it earlier. Can't believe this heat -- I think I would have at least dangled my toes in the fountain!

  13. So many lovely things. I hope you also sold a lot. I will join one on Saturday :O)

  14. Awwwesome treasures, Rosemary! So glad that you had a successful sale day. I knew you would! :)

  15. Rosemary,
    No surprise you did well.I mean look at your booth! LOTS of cool treasures.And you were lucky to be surrounded by great friends too!

  16. Sounds like an amazing show and that fountain... yep perfect for a little dip! ;)

  17. So glad you had a successful show...all your items looked amazing...hope you are getting some rest!

  18. And I thought you always stayed cool as a cucumber!


  19. Looks like you had an awesome show! I can only imagine the heat, what fun it would have been to jump into that fountain.


  20. Ohhhh, how I wish I could have been there Rosemary!!! It's really true, when you sweat a lot you don't need to pee at all. I've never sweat so much as I have here in FL, I sweat the second I step outside. My husbands forearms sweat along with the top of his hands, it's hilarious!

    Glad your show was a success:)

  21. Wonderful!!! Looked like a beautiful show...thanks for the peek :) Laurel

  22. The list of the price range so you can decide the appropriate size that will fit your budget. Some printing companies may also charge you for shipping fee so you have to prepare for that.

  23. Great photo's Rosemary!
    And I am glad you did great!
    But, hey with such awesome items and a great display how could you not do well!?



  24. These photo coasters also make for really good place card holders. The favor comes in sets of two and is finished off with a elegant organza bow to make for an excellent presentation.
