Summer Market Show

This year's Summer Market was my best show ever.  It helped that the weather was beautiful and was very heavily promoted.  It has grown over the years and I'm so proud to be a part of it.  Dealer fees go to the Girls Give Back charity, which is a wonderful local charity.

I bought a new white tent this year which I found very useful, as well as much better looking than my old blue tent.  This new tent also had side walls which helped overnight.

Check out my beautiful shower curtain with vintage handkerchiefs sewn on.  I'm SO HAPPY it sold.  It didn't sell last year so I was ecstatic when a woman fell in love with it and is putting it in her new cottage:

On Facebook I asked friends if I should keep these bird knobs on this dresser or change to glass knobs.  The vast majority voted for glass knobs, but I really liked the birds (which you probably can't see in this picture unless you enlarge).  I must have a good instinct because I kept the birds on and the dresser sold!

Another big piece that sold was this beautiful old dresser I finished in ASCP duck egg blue; always a popular color it didn't sell till the last day, but it sold!

I was so glad that I decided not to string aprons on the top of the tent and instead displayed them on this vintage drying rack.  Quite a few sold!  I'm so glad I'm not the only one who loves aprons :-)

Lastly, having these vintage golf club bottle openers out in front of the booth really stopped traffic.  Almost everyone stopped to comment on them and I did sell out!

I'm looking forward to another successful show next summer!
