I felt like I nearly melted and it took me at least a week to recover. Add to that my work schedule and helping with my friend's tea party last weekend, I was left feeling extremely tired and drained. I'm hoping to get some more energy by visiting with my new grandson this coming weekend. He just turned three months old and I can't wait to hold him.
To get ready to sell at a weekend event I load my little Toyota truck three times and take two loads on Friday and then another load early Saturday morning before we start. My goal is to return with only one truck load and that includes all my set up items and my Easy Up and anything that didn't get sold.
You can see in this photo the sun is barely peaking through. I actually had to wait to arrange everything when it got a little lighter out. This is just how I left things Friday evening, knowing I would be bringing more.
I finally got my things arranged around 7:00 a.m.
My tea towels and clip boards are always big sellers for me. I brought a few fall items like my white pumpkins even though it was a scorcher and felt more like summer. My bench with the French poem debuted this weekend and I'm happy to report it sold.
My green ladder shelf was one of the first things to go as well as my primitive blue cabinet that had that same poem stenciled inside and out. In fact, anything with my French poem sold.
In spite of the fact that it was Yom Kippur, a major Jewish holiday in a very Jewish community, the weekend was a huge success. Our next market will be mid November and I will post the dates as we get closer. Thanks for visiting and thanks for your patience while I gather my thoughts for the new season.
