What a fun and exhausting weekend!
I met some really nice vendors, had a blast setting up, and sold some pieces I showed you here in the last couple weeks.
I had a primo spot- my space was visible as soon as you walked in the door. (thanks Sarah!!)
The faire was held at Mission Mill Museum- a historical venue here in Salem.
Here's what it looked like.
I was so grateful my friend Lois was able to help me with set up! It made things go so much more smoothly and helped to have an extra pair of eyes to see how to put things together.
This was part of the view from the entrance. The hosts of this event made all of the tissue flowers that you see here- hanging from the ceiling beams and on these massive curly willow branches.
This corner was my aqua set :)
The back of my space:
I definitely need to get some creative ideas for my table dressing. It worked, but it wasn't as pretty as some of the other vendors who clearly have been doing this for awhile!
One of my last minute additions to the inventory was this little French label apothecary jar. It sold, as did the filigree cameo bottle that I talked about in a previous post.
This is a little peek at the center of the room. So many fun goodies!
As you entered the room, guests were greeted with this stunning glass house. Two 8 week old bunnies were nestled inside waiting to go home with somebody.
(I really resisted saying somebunny! ha!)
Sarah built this from an inspiration picture she had on file. You can see it here.
Aren't they the sweetest? I got to pet the tan one while we were setting up.
Can you believe these little cuties are litter box trained?? I didn't even know that was possible!
Both of the bunnies went home with someone- and she also bought the lovely glass house. Lucky girl!
I am happy to say that my first sale was for my faux French grain sack chair that I featured here.
The lady who bought it liked it because her maiden name was on it!
I was really happy with the results from the weekend!
My Etsy shop desperately needs to be restocked, so I will be able to do that this week.
Thanks for letting me share my excitement over this venture... I'm already looking forward to more like this!
Have a fantastic week!
