I called Mr Vintage and he brought me more stuff from the storage room and I made some quick changes. I combined some staging tricks I'd learned from my Extravaganza neighbor Sharon of Hunters Crossings with Dafney's design and ended up with a very browseable space that worked well.
I met some great vendor neighbors at the fair including Rick and Laura Nickerson of Gardentiques and Alexis Mihura of Eagles Lair Antiques. The regulars I already knew were there too and everyone was welcoming. I am so lucky to be surrounded by wonderfully creative people.

Visitors to my booth this weekend included Carol of The Polka Dot Closet and Kathy Gonzalez of Thrift Happy. If you are unfamiliar with these wonderful ladies, you'll have to check them out. Carol does the best tutorials for repurposing items and making beauty out of ugliness. Kathy is starting an online paper called Vintage Finds and is looking for contributions. Check out her website if you're interested.
Hopefully I'll see you at the Fancy Flea. Until then, I'll be creating more handcrafted items and reducing my inventory on the Flea Market side on Aisle D. Stop in and say hello.
Update: I've decided that the monthly shows aren't for me. I'm sticking to the Flea Market and other venues that pop up now and again.
