Holy Flea Market, Batman.

Forgive me if I slur my words tonight. I spent the last twelve hours packing up a 14-foot uhaul truck and unloading it at my official Farm Fresh Vintage Market space! Remember how I kept saying that I didn’t have enough stuff to fill my space?

Was I HIGH? I have a 10X10 space! This is a 14-foot truck! I ended up on the end of a row (next to Shara, yay!) and the event organizer said we could spill over as there was room. Well, after about an hour of unpacking and unloading, I realized that “spilling over” had turned into “appropriating an additional booth space.” I told her I really needed to pay for an additional space. I just had no idea I had so much stuff yet I’ve been staring at it for the entire summer.

I got everything unloaded tonight and roughly set up. I’m going to try and get there by 7:30 tomorrow (early shoppers will be there at 9 am) so I can finish up the rest. So far, it’s been a lovely experience — Amy, the event organizer, is wonderful and easy to work with, and the other vendors have been so sweet and helpful. The booths look AMAZING — I was eye-shopping the entire time I was setting up. Everyone has beautifully designed spaces with gorgeous stuff — a nice wide range of things.

Now comes the hard part — seeing if anyone wants to buy my stuff! It’s so hard, isn’t it, to put yourself out there like that and have other people judge your taste and shopping skills. Here’s hoping I don’t need a uhaul truck to get the remainders home on Saturday.

I will post on Sunday, hopefully, and in the meantime, enjoy the eye candy. The first three are from Shara’s booth — wish all of you could see it, it BURSTS with color and fun — and the others are from Amy, the event planner’s, booth. Here’s hoping I don’t spend every penny I make this weekend.

Lara Jo I know, right, Sarah?? I didn’t get a chance to really delve into those fabrics, but they were really reasonably priced.
