we had a blast today at the
Vintage Gatherings
weather and all.

i will be honest,
yesterday was not easy for
me... the weather, the mud,
the hole in the middle of 
our space, that if it had 
been a warmer day it would have
been a mosquitos dreamy hang
out and a few tears of stress.
After a make shift wood "floor"
my mom made, a wonderful
rag rug Kathy leant us, 
some creative plastic bubble
building with help from my mom
and Amy
we accomplished to get it all set 
up and ready for saturday.

we had some crazy
wind issues today and
with help from friends,
strangers and family
we saved most everything,
got the canopy situation figured 
out and the space re-merchandised.
the best part as we were trying to save 
the canopy and all of our treasures
people were still shopping.
all i could do was laugh and 
thank everyone for helping us out.

i can't wait till the next one
and so wish it would be in june
versus july.
oh well, july will give me time
to stalk up and find some more
wonderful things to bring to the next
Vintage Gathering.

here are some pics from the market.

not wait for july.
