A Wonderful Vintage Market

After months of planning and preparation, The Olde Farmhouse Vintage Market weekend was here! Here's a "before" photo of my booth.
So much stuff to sell--so little space!
Hubby Ben has a true talent for finding just what I need to display my wares.
He discovered this tree branch and it fit perfectly into the corner.
Here's the "after" photo of my booth, and yes,
we did manage to fit everything into it!
By the end of the show, we'd said good-bye to our vintage steam-trunk.
We'd picked it up in Pennsylvania when we were first married in 1976 and it's been a part of our lives ever since.
But now it's found a place in another home and the new owner promised me she'd treasure it, just as we had.
A few close-ups of my booth...the calm before the storm.

Thanks so much to hubby Ben for all your help...
maybe we've found our retirement careers!
At 5:00 pm the doors opened...two hours later, 600 people had walked through the barns!
Saturday was another full day of selling and then it was over.
Thank you Leah and Barb for organizing this wonderful event
and thanks to all of you who attended!
They promise there'll be another one in June, 2013, so I'd better start replenishing my stock!
