Market Success

The Hunt and Gather Pop Up Market was a one day, six hour event, this past Friday, that brought a flurry of customers. You can find out more about the market HERE.  There will be another in March.

Instead of setting up the night before the market, hubby and I decided to do it all the day of.  So, needless to say, we were working at warp speed.

The doors opened at 2:00 pm, and my rooster flew the coop right away.

Actually, from that point on, I was pretty busy with a constant stream of customers. Lots of items found new homes.

I wish I'd had a hundred violin playing cherubs.  Everyone loved the finish I put on it.

I sold a bunch of burlap.  Whoo Hoooooo.

My crown sold to a deliriously happy customer.

By the end of the show, I just wanted to lay down like my cherub here.

I thought I would get more shots of my booth during the show, but, that didn't happen.  Too busy.

I did however manage to get a few shots of other booths, before, and during the last hour of the show.

This is my friend Yolanda, and her husband Julio.  She has a shop in Hammond, IN, called The Junk Fairy

I love the spot she had in the corner with the exposed brick.

My friend MJ and her husband (Est. 1964) had an awesome display.

I wish I'd had time to take more photos, but, I'm very happy that making sales was the reason I couldn't.  I'm so grateful to all who came out and shopped.

Still in recoup mode.

See ya soon.


  1. Hey Miss Rosemary, I'm so happy you had a very successful day! Had I been around your store I'd have taken everything displayed in your first photo...just gorgeous things and yes, I do adore the White frame, I can see it with a mirror! Very happy to visit you sweetie. Have another great week ahead.

  2. I can only imagine the hard work to set up for a show. I love what I see, sure wish I lived near you.

    Rest up, you deserve it!!

  3. You had some great things for sale, Rosemary! I'm loving that boy with the violin statue.
