The tented grounds of Viva la Cottage were rockin' on Saturday morning as buyers rushed in to shop the Vintage Market. The atmosphere was reminiscent of Junk Bonanza as shoppers jammed the tent and rushed to hand over their cash so they could move on to the next vendor.
About two hours after opening the initial rush slowed, we were able to fill in empty spaces and sales continued at a more manageable pace for the rest of the day.
Our fellow vendors had great displays and I'm sorry that I didn't get a chance to get photos of each one. Minutes before openingI snapped a couple pics and had to return to our tent.
Jeanine from ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! had the best collection of cherry-themed finds, and this display featuring oranges and greens just oozed summery charm.
Carol of In A Haystack had a fun assortment including a whole lotta cheery red & white.
We were set up next to our uber-creative friends at Altered Ever After, (Jill & Candyce), and later met for great conversation over a steak dinner; we often run into each other at shows and seldom have a chance to visit.
Lenni & Erica from Apron Stringsbrought a happy assortment of vintage finds.
The entire day was great fun and Angie from Viva la Cottage was a wonderful 'hostess'. (She & her hubs actually took our tent down for us as we were loading up after the show - thanks Angie! - can't wait to be back there next year!)
...and THANKS to everyone that shopped our booth - it wouldn't have been a successful day without you!
***P.S. If you bought 10 of something and arrived home with only 9, please email me...I have it!
