I made it to the end of ANOTHER flea market.
I must say that I applaud all the vendors who do this more than once in 5 years as I have done. It is HARD work and I hope everyone who has ever shopped at a flea market understands all the work and the whole process that goes into preparing for a flea market. Not only the buying or making of treasures to sell, tagging, packing, loading and trucking everything to the location, unloading and fluffing their booth. OH and don't forget about the dismantling, repacking and reloading and taking all the unsold items back for storage, and for some of us, unloading again and storing for the next flea market.
I am DONE!
I vow to only SHOP from now on!!!!!!!
Seriously though, I had FUN! For me the best part is the FLUFFING of my booth. Guess what? I had so many shoppers and vendors ask me if I had a shop and if so where was it, and then the best words came from the owner and most of the other vendors and shoppers.
I was voted BEST BOOTH!
I had a
little lot of everything.
China, pottery, linens, mirrors, silver, furniture, quilts.
You name it, I had it there.
My space was a 20x20 and the tent 10x20 and I filled every inch I had available.
I was packed to the ceiling.
Thank goodness my sisters were there to help!
My whole family pitched in from loading and hauling to babysitting and unloading.
I couldn't have done it without you for sure!
I had a good day. I was lucky a dealer came through early and bought almost all my large furniture. That means not having to haul it back home. I sold some of my hand made signs, and tags. I was surprised that more of the architectural stuff did not sell, but really I have no complaints.
I get to buy my new sewing machine and the RUFFLE foot.
I did a lot of HAPPY DANCING too!
However, this girl is retiring from flea market shows.........well maybe.........we will just have to see what kind of mood I am in next year.
Since my booth is just plastered in WHITE and I am still tired from the weekend.
I will use this post for my favorite party of the week with Kathleen from Faded Charm for White Wednesday.
