Vintage Bazaar - Our Booth!

Well, Michelle and I did it.  Phew!  We presented our first ever booth at the Vintage Bazaar, held on Pettengill Farm, Salisbury, MA this past weekend.
Let me just tell you, we both have a HUGE new-found appreciation for all the hard work that vendors put into a show.  Our bodies ached, we were tired, but there were big smiles on our faces at the end of both days.  What fun we had.
Without further adieu, here are some photos of our tent space.  The first group are from Saturday, which turned out to be a crazy-busy day.  Since Sunday was quieter, I was able to take more photos that day - especially from afar with no one inside.  You can tell we went with a white/cream background and lots of  pops of grey.  I'll pipe in with some comments, but will let the photos do most of the talking.

Saturday's booth:

Now on to Sunday's photos.  We re-arranged a bit after much sold on Saturday.  Here's the booth from afar:











And here are some photos close up:



























The ladies across the path from us were super sweet.  Here's Michelle with Cindy from Cowgirl Emporium (on the left) and Amy from Sage and Twine (on the right):

We loved being across from you ladies!


The end of the day....looking a little tired, don't you think?  :)

We want to send a big THANK YOU out to our husbands and families for all their help, as well as terrific friends that came out to support us.  Devon did a wonderful job of organizing the whole event, which drew in such a crowd.
Thanks also to the lovely customers that visited our booth with their smiles and enthusiasm.  I didn't catch a photo of Mary Ellen and Karen, from the Wrentham Country Store, who each visited and supported us. Thank you ladies!  Your 'At Home with White' event was truly an inspiration for us.

Michelle - I couldn't have done this without you, my pickah sistah!  We were truly comrades in the trenches. THANK YOU!

I am thrilled to see your post of your show, it's GORGEOUS! You two are the cutest pickers sisters EVER. Truly, you don't look tired to me at all, you look, well, content.

Ooh, your white tents and beautiful treasures for sale, I tell you, it's all too much! I would have been drawn to that suitcase full of goodies and that shabby French chair just stole my heart.

Will there be a next time? If so, I'm THERE. xo Rhonda
