Quaint Marketplace

The Second Annual Quaint Marketplace.....and that, my friends, explains where I have been and what I have been doing for the past several weeks. Getting "my stuff" ready for this event was hard on this old girl, but in the end, it was great fun! Several of my friends who follow my blog emailed me to see if I was OK, since I had not blogged for several weeks. Thanks for checking on me, pals. Ahhh, to feel loved and missed!!! OK, back to the Marketplace. At the last minute, we had to move our location from Jana's beautiful backyard to a more protected area. (due to rain) Homer and Rhonda Hillis graciously let us use the warehouse at their store, Hannah Jane. We went from a lush, garden setting to warehouse funky. It was a great day and fun was had by all. The pics below tell the story of the day. I don't think my camera was on the correct setting, but at least you can get a glimpse into what it was all about! Also, I APOLOGIZE profusely to those whose booths I did not get photographed. Molly, I KNOW I took pics of your fabulous pillows but where in the world did my camera put them??? So many other fun vendors,but for the moment, this is all I have to show. Enjoy!Welcome!!!!
Even a place to leave your stuff!

Yummy food and drinks.

Distinguished guests....Kind of scarey,huh??

Nancy's fabulous birdcage! Yes, I am still mad that I didn't know it was FOR SALE and it slipped out the door!

My vintage Bingo Cards turned into fun greeting cards.

Clipboards become wall art with vintage bird prints.

Brandy's wonderful works of art. So talented!

My new friend from Pearland brings her sweet frames,etc. to add to our Market.

More of Nancy's "Good Stuff".

Mary's handpainted magnets. These went like hotcakes.

Sweet little dresses from antique pillowcases. My picture does not do them justice.

Jana's precious burp cloths

Pam's creations. So fun!

"I love this, don't you??

"Chick Magnets"
Ornaments from the past.

Great post! I love your photos. You did a good job describing the day. I hope to post some more pics soon. I enjoyed spending some time with you. I know your sales were good because every time I glanced over to your table, you were writing up a sales ticket... Yeah!!
