Pretty to sea!

Sometimes my interesting job, leads me to interesting places...I often get to be around beautiful things, antiques, art, furniture...but sometimes something stops me in my tracks, like this lively tableau, nature at its best!

Another successful Farmhouse Vintage Market

It was a whirlwind of a weekend! Another successful market day with The Olde Farmhouse Vintage Market. Thank you to Leah and her helpful family, and a big thank you to all of my customers! Especially, my repeat customers who I got to meet again! It was nice to hear how happy they are with their purchases from last year. Thank you all again. 
The quality of items this year and all the displays, were all amazing and are getting better each year. Good work everyone!

After The Olde Farmhouse Vintage Market...Reflections....




I am recovering from a whirlwind couple of days...What an event! It is a weird feeling, my head is spinning from thinking about the set up, the event itself, the packing up, and putting things away at home...wow...

I am reflecting on some special moments that occured that I would like to share...special fleeting moments, interacting with customers, that make all the work and stress so worth it...

I met a young girl, thirteen to be exact, almost a young lady I should say, she was the daughter of another vendor that I did not meet, but this young lady came by numerous times to visit and chat and I could not be more impressed with her wit and charm. She chose a set of nesting dolls from my booth and said she would "cherish them forever"...Amazing and bright girl! She had such a great personality, an old soul I think...

Another special moment was when a little baby girl, probably about 1 year old, happily took her new vintage doll buggy for a stroll...so cute! How cool are those parents who bought her that! Some of my favorite moments as a vintage seller, are the ones that happen when a child finds something cool they would like to have from my booth. I love those happy faces....It really make these events truly memorable for me....

I met many more interesting people...I also am honored that Artist, Shopkeeper, and Blogger, Heather Ross, made a few purchases from my booth...I was truly floored! OMG!

So now, maybe another?? We will see..I need to rest now! Or maybe, start hunting for more treasures for the next event!
