Molly Mo's Antique Faire - part 2

Good morning!  

I wasn't really planning on having two parts to this topic, but it was probably better than having too many photos in just one.
I will never apologize for picture heavy posts- that's what we love to see when we visit blogs- the pretty photos... am I right?

So here's part 2.  
One thing I really liked about this year's show was the addition of Friday evening early buying.
It seemed to go very smoothly, and it was a great atmosphere.
Diane, the owner of Molly Mo's, is such a wonderful host.
Since she's been in this business, she understands what it's like as a vendor, and she really takes care of us. 
All with a smile!
It's been such a privilege to be a part of this market.

This table was something I've had for awhile.  
It originally had a black wrought iron base and a table top that I built.  
The top was way too heavy and I was never happy with how it turned out, so it sat in our garage until this summer when I decided to hire Redemptive Woodworx to build a new rustic top for it.
 I love how it turned out.
Matt is a great guy that we've known for a long time.

I also painted the base white and I think it has an overall fresh and rustic feel to it.
It's a better fit to my style, and something I'd use in my own home!

I loved this little vignette.  
It's what I featured on FB and Instagram!  I sold most of what you see here.

I just loved this dresser. 
 We bought it on our anniversary.  
You read that right.  
My wonderful husband of 23 years who loves me so much, agreed to a day of junking on our anniversary.
He's a saint.  He did tell me several times how much fun the day was.
A saint I tell you.

I painted this beauty in MMS Ironstone and it chipped like crazy!  
I left the top natural.  I actually had some mercury glass knobs ready to install, but I just never had the time before or during the show. 
I dropped it off at Aunt Bee's earlier this week after a big piece sold (and the new knobs properly installed on it) and it sold in less than 24 hours.  
So this is the only photo I got of it.
Sorry about all the shadows, but I just couldn't not feature it in at least one shot!

These soda crates have a great story.  
Shortly before Molly Mo's when I was neck deep in projects, I was working on several pieces in the driveway. 
A neighbor whom I had never met before pulled over and said she was so glad she finally drove by while I was working out front! 

She asked if I would be interested in buying some vintage pieces from her since they were getting ready to downsize.
Yes please!

We made arrangements for me to meet her and go through what she had that I might like.
This was part of the purchase, along with several other great pieces I will share later.
She and her husband were so gracious and sweet, and it was just another perk of working where my work is seen.

I was really able to spread out at this year's market, and I quickly realized I needed more flat storage for all my smalls.  
Jon was able to run home mid-set up and get our garage rolling rack for additional display space.  
It was a lifesaver and worked great!

Some of you may remember a couple of these shortening cans that I had at Junk Salvation earlier this year.  I found another one (in my favorite color) from another vendor this summer and couldn't resist it.
It sold along with most of what you see here.

Jon and I made the galvanized wine barrel orbs (just to the left of the bench) and it was a fun project we put together before the show. 
We made two of them and they both sold!

One of the buyers said she and her husband were going to make it into a chandelier.  
Love hearing those kinds of stories when these items sell!

These two gorgeous vintage quilts were so unique and pretty.  They did not sell, and I'm trying to decide if I have enough wall space to display them at Aunt Bee's House, or if I should list them online.  
All but 2 of the shabby white frames sold too!

This was the first time I used my awning doors at an outdoor market, and they held up really well!  With the gusts of wind we were worried about them tipping backwards, but we figured out a way to secure them (pretty much by adding heavy weights in the window boxes at the base).

It was one of my best shows ever, and I'm already looking forward to my next fall event!

You can see upcoming event info on FB, and if you aren't in the area, you can always shop online with me on Etsy.

If there's ever something you see here on the blog that you are interested in, message me and I can let you know if it's still available and the shipping costs to get it to you.

I'm so grateful that I get to do what I love, have my family and friends be a part of it, and make money doing it.  Thank you again- from my heart- for your support of what I do!

Thanks so much for your visit!
