 Great Spring Shows

Well, April and May were crazy to say the least.  It started with The Country Living Fair in Austin Tx and ended with The Vintage Marketplace in Springfield, Ohio. Both shows were GREAT. Lots of wonderful vendors, shoppers and friends
At the Austin show , Tim's mom, Alice went with us. This was her first Country Living Fair and boy did she get a work out.  She also makes the great messenger bags that we take.  Since it was  the first Tx CL show, we didn't know what to expect.  But we were not disappointed.  The crowds were huge and so friendly.  I think everyone  was a little disappointed over the lack of food vendors, but this will be corrected and next year's show will be even better.
The VintageMarketplace in Springfield was May18th thru the 20th.  Tim and I did this show by ourselves.  This was the fist time for The Vintage Marketplace at the Springfield Extravaganza.  The show was awesome and the sales were great.  Sue Whitney , of Junk Market Style, gave the show her special touch.  This show will just keep getting better.
Now , that the shows are over , I get to relax .  Well, maybe just a little bit.  I do have two booths to keep up with, my Etsy shop and oh yeah, stockpiling for those two big Country Living Fairs in the fall. That means auctions , flea markets and junk shopping which I LOVE to do. So I will close with a few pics from the shows.
