Friday before the Trade Days Sale started off early with dealers showing up with tents, awnings and tables. The wind was blowing which made it cooler than usual, but it was proving to be a gorgeous weekend.....I even think the light shining down through the pictures was our indication it was gonna be a good weekend.
All of the dealers were wonderful and made my efforts putting the sale together look good. This was the best sale to date and as dealers left they were already talking about the next one scheduled in May. I'm not quite sure I'm ready to think about that right now as I sit here still in my pajamas with tired, sore feet.........but I know it will all come together yet again. I thank all the dealers who hang in there with me and share my vision for what this can and will become over the years and for all the customers that come and shop.......believe it or not.....it's all done for YOU!
The lot got fuller and fuller as the day went on.......the wind was blowing so we all said silent prayers our tents wouldn't be on Wendy's parking lot before morning!
A wonderful assortment of all kinds of vintage and antique treasures!
Wonderful, quality items at more than fair prices made the day successful for everyone!
I was so very pleased and impressed with the "loot" all the dealers brought. There was so very much to choose from that you didn't know where to look first!
I immediately fell in love with this solid vintage concrete gnome.......it so reminded me of the one from one of the King of the Hill episodes I saw.......not many people know that I adore that show and it makes me laugh out loud. I wouldn't spend the money on myself for this expensive little guy, but I saw the deaker loading it into my lil'mama's car, so I'm pretty sure it's gonna be under the Christmas tree for me this year.....makes me very happy!
The patio was set up and ready to go early........next year this area will be covered with a new wooden pergola....no more tents and awnings for this girl!
And my girls.....Tater and her mama. This was Tater's first sale and she did wonderful.....so wonderful that she got a "prize". Even with a nine week old baby, my beautiful daughter was more help than ten people....she is so incredible.....goodness, I do love my girls!
