It is a 3 day show in our home town and we have been doing it for years. I was a slacker this year and did not meet my quota that I should have gotten done. But that is okay. Mr. P. had his re purposed furniture which brings lots more money. Actually I only have a few tables and use his furniture to display my items. We did have a wonderful show despite the heat.
Just love having lots of customers waiting on us when we open.
All these pieces were going home with one couple early on Saturday morning. I really think I enjoyed this show better than any in years past. We have so many customers who come and visit every year. This year one lady brought pictures of her vintage/country farmhouse kitchen. She had used many items she had purchased over the years from Mr. P. Let me tell you, it was magazine material. Beautiful.! This year she purchased a chippy old white mantel and said it was going into her dining room, and would be sure to bring pictures back next year to show us.
Meeting new customers is always fun too. We had a lady whose husband is on a work visa here from the Netherlands. She bought a big heavy white bench Mr. P. had built and had an old 6 panel wood door for the back. She ask if she paid extra would he put it on rollers and deliver it to her home. He agreed and on Sunday afternoon our son -in-law went with him to deliver it in a neighboring city. He came back saying the house was huge, in a gated community on the golf course, and ALL her furniture was on rollers. Hmmmm, wonder if that is a common thing in her country. She assured him when they went back home it would be on the container to go back to her country with her. How neat to have a piece of Mr. P's furniture going so far away.
This year I added a fruit stand to my craft items. It was so much fun watching folks come by and think the watermelons and peaches were real. They were the hit of the show and once word got around all the vendors were coming over to see them. They were made by patterns from Make Me A Memory. I so enjoyed making them.

Some more random photos from the show. Ornaments are my biggest sellers, While stitcheries run a close race. I am sorry we did not get a picture of the whole booth.
These tussie muses were new and a great seller. They were from a Dee Duncan pattern.
As always Mr. P. had his chairs and flowers. This was my favorite one this year and the first one to sell early Saturday morning. It was planted in an old sewing machine cabinet.
This photo was taken on Sunday afternoon, and you can see clearly how empty the booth had become. And we still had one more day to go.
Well another year has come and gone and I would like to say thank you to our family, friends, and loyal customers that support us every year. Thank you to all the new customers and new friends we made at this show and hope to see you again next year.
So.....did we take a long rest once the show was over??? No,,, on Tuesday we left out for a much needed vacation. Can't wait to share those photos with you in my next post.
Thank you all for stopping by. I haven't forgotten my giveaway that will come up soon. Stay tuned. Hope you all have a wonderful evening. Until next time.
