Well, the summer just got away from me and.... (just watch all the excuses start flying out of my mouth!) .... and.... oh well .... no sense trying to blame anyone but myself! So sorry about that!
Our last show was in Brimfield Mass. For a July show, it went pretty well. We were happy. A lot of our usual buyers didn't come to the show, but we had a decent retail crowd to take up the slack. Our field was a little on the empty side...I'm so glad that Jackie & Steve from Bliss Farm were there...we kept each other company! They are such nice people, and their booth looked amazing! I'm still kicking myself for not asking if I could take any pics for the blog. Of course we were both missing our friends from Time Worn Interiors (pleeease come back T&C!!!) Pat, Bonnie, myself, & our dog, Abby really missed our good friends & kiddie corner neighbors at New England Motel, Kerry & Carole of Painted Pretty Furniture. Those girls are so much fun & we were so glad when they stopped by for a visit!
Here are some pics of our booth at New England Motel in Brimfield.
|We always try to have a long harvest table at Brimfiled. This time I set the table with fine Limoges china, and had a 36" stainless steel fish steamer center piece filled with nautical items. I loved the painted blue aluminum oars!|
|The place mats we used were large glossary pages from an old atlas.|
|That fish steamer sold fast, so I had to replace it with this super huge chicken feeder base. This time I mixed in some silverplate with the nautical items.|
|I love old fishing nets; they're so fun to work with!|
|We bought a little bitty metal cabinet just before heading to Brimfield. It was small and a little crummy, but FILLED with these cute tiny drawers - 225 in all! Our retail crowd just gobbled them up!|
