~~~~~~The Jury is Still Out~~~~~~~

It's difficult to believe it has been almost two weeks since I last posted....
I made the decision to keep a steady pace going in preparation for the
Dallas Flea which was this past weekend.
You don't realize how much time can be spent taking pictures, posting to a blog and moderating comments as well, and when time is precious.....well, blogging lost the battle.
The "off-campus" sale was something I had never done before.....
It seems to serve no purpose to take all of your things somewhere else.
When you have a beautiful store in which to sell them.
BUT, I did, and I have not worked that hard in a long time.
The sale was located on the main floor of the old Sears building near Downtown Dallas.
There are condos on the upper floors and is a very trendy area.
Our booth was 15x7' and we had no trouble filling it to the brim.

It looked like a little version of my Shoppe....

It's impossible to get away from who you are.


The day
was long, starting at 4:00am and the building was hot.
But the sale was fun and so worth it.
I was able to make numerous contacts and obtain special orders
for some of my clothing.....
Which was really the whole point in setting up.



The jury is out on whether I will ever do anything like this again......
But it was a good day!
The Trade Days is coming up October 23rd,
So I am off to making sure that is a success.
There's just no rest for the weary...and that would be me!

Thanks for stopping by today.....
I always love it when you come.
