the show on the road...


The ladies are on the road again....
I have quite the collection of vintage dress forms and normally they are NSF.
As you know.... not for sale.

Except when the show hits the road.
I like to bring four or five statement pieces.
The show.... Junk Bonanza.
First ever spring Bonanza and IT Snowed.... it snowed a LOT !!!
we got 12" the first day of the show...

will it ever end.???





Luckily, the snow didn't start until we were unloaded and set up.
We even had 4 GOOD hours of sales before the snow started and then it took another 2 hours before the crowds got scared over the driving conditions and everyone split.









With spring in mind.

We set up our space.... I say we because I shared my space this year with 3 friends.
Christine and Lori, friends from Michigan....Re-Treat Design
and Betty from Petunia's.

It was a blast and I didn't have to schlep as much product.
We had a great mix of Vintage product and a little bit of our own creative art.




fabulous birds and owls .... Christine



I dressed my ladies with a touch of the garden....



...of course my camera battery was low.... I cut out a lot of blurry shots but the more I took the worse it got.  ugh....


new Barn shirts....V-neck.... big hit








my trophy collection from home
(our first sale)

the spindles were strictly for drama but we sold them.... everyone loved them 



chickens, boxes, cases and sock monkeys.... who would of guessed....



the monkeys enjoyed the road trip but unfortunately, they went back home to Michigan....


my new line of vintage silver art 

Fun.
The largest canvas 54" x 36" went to a coffee shop.... 
I am so excited to have it displayed in an public eatery

(sorry for he blur)






Betty brought this fabulous bird cage and head collection....
Love!!!


Betty also put together some fun fairy gardens with fun vintage pieces


overall, we had a blast AND sold a ton....

It was so nice to share a spot....I fit all my goods in Mr. Miller's Tahoe for the ride home.
You gotta love that!!


I made a few spring flower paintings for the show...
and a few for the Barn....

See you there... at the Barn.
