The show at Seward was a bit wet, well quite wet actually. So, we pulled everything in tight and Pat from Liberty House gave me a rug she was going to throw out so I could pad the puddle in my booth.
Unfortunately, I forgot my camera. But, my daughter who was helping me, had hers in her purse, so at least I took a couple of shots. The red items in the photo above used to sit in my hoosier. I had quite a collection of red bakelite, but have decided it's time for change.
Making flowers to adorn books is just as much fun as making burned flower pins!
I really enjoyed meeting new vendors/friends and the shoppers who love the old things as much as I do!! It eventually did quit raining. I must say, in the end, it turned out to be quite a nice day!!
Funny story....I promised my daughter who was helping me that she would be home in time to go out with her friends. Well, we were running late. My husband came down with my youngest three daughters and we quickly loaded the pick up for Bonnie to take home. She left and I went for our suburban to finish loading. Uhg. Forgot about the really big, lovely, maple rocking chair in there that I never got out because of the rain. Should have put more in the pickup...there isn't room now for the rest of the stuff, the rocker, and the kids. I found one vendor left and asked if she wanted a rocking chair. No. But she had a friend...and she came and looked and snagged it up at the incredibly cheap price I shot her! Whew! At least I didn't have to give it away. Or leave one of my kids.
Another funny story?....We killed time from tearing down the booth (about 6ish) until 10 to watch the big fireworks show...we set up in the park to watch and then realized people were leaving after the free concert. Why were they leaving if there was to be a fireworks show?!?! Yes. Found out the fireworks show had been canceled because of the rain....we could have been home...hours before. So it goes. Still was a good day!
