My booth was all done, so I took a moment to walk around before the show opened and was so excited to see that there was a crowd waiting to get in. Let the fun begin!!!
It was so great to see Debi and Bob of Retreat again. I can honestly tell you I couldn't get within 5 feet of their booth at Farm Chicks, so this was a real treat for me to get a close up look at all the wonderful things they had to sell. Kudos to Debi too for a great chat/seminar on Friday night. It got all of us thinking about how we should put our best "booth" forward.
John/Bob put up yet another lovely display here at the show. I had seen them the weekend before at Farm Chicks - I kept asking myself how these folks had anything left to sell, or any energy left to do these amazing displays again. I caught John before the show wrestling with a gorgeous bouquet of flowers - such a perfect touch!
This is Kris, followed by Amy from Today's Country Store in Sumner. They too were at Farm Chicks. Their booth was again "eye candy". Of course, I made another purchase - this time a wonderful plant stand & mirror turned end table. It's a lovely addition to my Sunroom! Thanks girls!!!
This is Wendy - she is a dear and please forgive me for the blurry picture, but I had to post it. She had a stash of very lovely things as well and so many great re-purposing ideas.
Loved the beautiful metal vase, Wendy!
My neighbor across the aisle was Debi Bock from Garden Party in Snohomish. She had a delightful booth - the umbrellas were made from vintage fabrics and trim. Darling!!! She had the most wonderful garden girl - a dressform all mossed up and planted. Amazing.
On Sunday, I received a surprise visit from my good friends, Kathy and Ron Lange. They drove a long way to see my booth and check out the show. Thanks so much you guys.
And lastly, someone snapped a picture of Judy (my next door neighbor, partner at the show, expert seamstress, driller, stapler and saleswoman extraordinaire) and me. So cute. We had a blast getting ready for this show and I definitely couldn't have done it without her.
