Vintage Market Success!

So last weekend, I did my first ever Vintage Market.  What a blast we had!  We, being my grand Skylar and I.  Skylar had no school on Friday, so she spent the night on Thursday and we got up at the butt crack of dawn and headed out to Pueblo.  Pueblo is about two and a half hours from here, but it ended up taking us around three hours to get there.  So we arrived about ten or so and had such an easy set up.  They had extra help in carrying things in, so we were not too exhausted for the evening sale.  We left around two or three in the afternoon, got a hotel room, showered and headed back.  The pre-sale was from 5-8PM and  it reopened again at 9 the next morning.  I had a great booth area and sales were steady all day.

 There were a couple of old trucks used at the venue.....great vintage vibe!
Sales of repurposed items were strong.  So I have been busy this week working on more.  I made over a few of the graters.
The grater is a thrift store find.  I simply spray it with a brown primer.  Tie a bow around it (secure with a dab of hot glue) and tie on the candle.  These are waxed dipped candles from Darice.  I secure it with a wire and then tie fabric over the top.  

Also went to the thrift store this week.  Here are a couple of my vintage finds.  The washboard was only $5 and the broom was $3!  Always fun to find the special deals...

No shows this weekend.  My grand, Addyson is turning 5 and my daughter just bought a new house, so we are heading to Cheyenne on Saturday.  Sunday, I am loading the car with merchandise for Christmas in the Country, and delivering north of Cheyenne for that show.  Friday is set up for a two day show in Westminster at Standley Lake High School.  This is a great show, with arts and crafts, antiques and repurposed items.  There are over 100 vendors with unique items for your gift list.  Come see me!  I will be set up in the cafeteria.

Well, my friends, what is it they say?  I owe, I owe, so off to work I go......Well, into the studio, I go....
