What a grand day!! Oh My Gosh!! Flea Marketers were out in force yesterday for the Barn House Market. Joe and Jermonne gathered tremendous talent....something for everyone. A little primitive, a little romantic, some garden delights, americana, cottage, retro chic.....all represented. If you didn't find something at this market, you were moving through with your eyes closed!!
It was SUPPOSED to be a cooler day with temperatures only in the low seventies. The weatherman lied. It was warm....verging on down right hot! I think a lot of vendors, and even some marketers, went a way with a little pink flush to their skin. I was glad to have one of my paper polka dot parasols to keep the sun off my shoulders.
At the end of the day we were pleased. We'd sold all the big cabinets, the sweet little dresser with the french details and a large bookshelf that I was sad to see sell. Darn. However, silly us bought another big cabinet....a fabulous shabby chippy pie safe with the original dirty cream colored paint and peely tin panels!! That's going to Monticello Antiques in September to be part of my fall collection. Fall collection.....how awfully grand and pretentous that sounds! Sorry, I didn't know what else to call it. Fall display sounded like I was just going to display lovely things. The goal here is to collect lovely things for people to BUY! :o)
Oh, and hey! I don't think I mentioned that we'll actually have a booth in Monticello. We got the nod last week. YAY!!! We'll start moving things in in a couple of weeks. We're soooo excited!!
Today though, we're kicking our feet up a little. I may even spend a little time in the studio working on bears. That, for me, is relaxing. :o)
Here are a few more pictures of the day. It was so busy all day I barely got these photos! I wish I'd been able to get more. The booths were all so amazing!! Next year.....as soon as Joe and Jermonne set the Flea Market day....plan to be there!!!
Warmest bear hugs, Aleta
