wow.. the days have flown by since my last post..
BRIMFIELD was a great show.. we had ordered a 10X20 tent and had a idea how our booth would be set up.. so SURPRISE #1.. the tent was a 15X15.. which is a whole different set up and not as easy .. less front open space and 5 feet out outside space was now gone.. it took us over 2 hours just to lay the footprint.. then the unpacking and seeting dispays.. after an 8 hour day we returned to our little cabin.. home away from home .. exhausted and feel into bed.. arriving before SEVEN on Tues. ( the first day of the show) to find the girls who had shopped with us last year, there waiting for us.. we felt bad that we were not as READY as we had hoped.. but got right to work and began selling right away..
I sold my 3 largest( in size) pieces within the first couple hours.. which took a load off my mind for the repacking nightmare! and the day just kept getting better from there..
We went “home” happy at 6PM.. again in bed by 9ish..
The next 5 days were good to us too, with several past customers returning..( they had shopped with us last year), Carolyn came all the way from Salt Lake City.. and now is hoping to make the trip to Madison Bouckville this Aug!! .. and had 1 of my Syracuse customers come all the way with her daughter( who is living in RI) to shop.. they were loving it.. just wish they had been there earlier in the week .. when things looked a little fresher.. We met some fun loving girls, who had a great time shopping, laughing and loading their car with treasures..
They were all so nice and really make what I do so much fun…
I hope to be better about posting..BUT.. well… I am not that good at it and never sit long enough to get it done..
My next planned show will be at Long Branch Park in Liverpool… The Great American Antique Show.. in JULY..
Have a Happy Memorial Day..
And remember … KEEP HUNTING.. there are lots of treasures out there!!
