Show Shots and, I'm Toast

It was a beautiful day at The Arboretum on Sunday, but chilly.  Coat time.  Sales were steady.  This piece went to a very excited 10 year old girl.  It's going at the foot of her new queen size bed.  SHE paid for it.



I actually had two pink pieces that sold right away.  This desk was the other.  Here it is before we loaded it up.  It was very dirty when hubby brought it home.  I gave it a good cleaning, sanding, and switched out the original knobs with crystal ones.



Here it is in my booth.  It took one customer about a minute to know it was perfect for her flat screen. A very proud mom purchased the "Beauty Parlor" sign for her daughter who just received her beautician license.




More shots of my booth.





















Like I said, it was a beautiful sunny day.  Here are a couple wide shots of the tented area.







Ten degrees or so warmer, and it would have been just about perfect.



I spent way too much time at the Riverside Chocolate Factory booth.  The chocolate peanut butter cupcake was INSANELY good.



It was a good show, and it was nice to see some of my readers.  Thanks to all.

Now, I'm toast.  Kicking back.  See ya soon.

Oh how I wish I could have been there. Your treasures look fabulous and it's no wonder you sold both of those pink pieces. You know the 10 year old girl will have that bench forever.

Yay, on a successful show! I'm surprised pink was a quick seller. How nice that the little girl paid for her own bench. Bet she keeps it for life! ~ Maureen

Wish I could shop at your wonderful store! So many goodies I would have snatched up. I love that the 10 year old bought the seat with her own money.

Rosemary I was so surprised to see those pink things in your booth!! I always think of you as miss grey and white. I have yet to paint a piece of furniture pink believe it or not, but I just might after seeing that desk!! I got my rose bottles and I love them!! I have them in a windowsill in the kitchen but soon they will be off to Maison Decor. Thank you for the excellent service and speedy shipping!

Wish we had more out door buying around here. Wonder why we don't? Seems like they do really well and draws a crowd. Of course it would have to have your talent along with it. Very nice..and that young girl is learning how to shop the right way! Vintage...

Wow, I love that pink bench myself, Rosemary! I can imagine how happy that little girl was and how great that she bought it herself. It was chilly here this weekend, too, although thank goodness the sun was out. Glad you had a good show!
