Molly Mo's Antique Faire 2016

It's Tuesday, the week after a vintage market... and usually I am relaxing and taking a breather after all the work, but not this week!
I'm hoping to get the kitchen prepped for cabinet painting.  
Yes, I am that crazy.

Anyway, I had a great time at Molly Mo's Antique Faire!
This was my third year participating as a vendor.

It was so incredibly hot!!
We reached temps in the upper 90's and I was fortunate that my booth got a little bit of shade during the late afternoon hours from a big fir tree.


We still had lots of customers that braved the heat, and I really enjoyed talking to fellow vendors and customers all weekend.


It was the first market I was in since France, so I had all my treasures here and it was so much fun talking to people about the trip, and swapping travel stories.


I was happy with my booth set up- it's the first time this year that I felt like everything looked cohesive and well put together.


My favorite(s) were these industrial cubbies that I brought.  
I got them from a mechanics shop and they are so fun.  I went back and bought a set for me!
 I added some metal casters to mine and it is now in our basement family room area.  




These vintage theatre chairs are from a historic local theatre.  They are so fabulous.  I'm guessing they are around 80 years old.  Wouldn't they look great in an entry way or media room?

I had a few interested customers but they either wanted to split up the pair or offer less on them (they were very reasonably priced, and I had just debuted them here so I wasn't willing to do that on either account).






I absolutely love this art!  It looks like a student piece.  It's a 2 for 1. There's the still life here, and on the backside is a landscape.  Both are so pretty and remind me of fall.  It didn't sell, but that's ok.  I really love this one, and I think the right person will too.
It's at Aunt Bee's House now.


And speaking of artwork, I found this fantastic booklet on how to paint flowers, and just loved the illustrations.  I thought it would have made a great collage of instant art if someone wanted to tear out the pages and hang them on the wall.  It sold.  I'm a teeny bit sad.


I'm still working on a complete look for my booth- I definitely have an end goal in mind- one that is easy to store, easy set up and take down (lightweight), and has a certain look that I'm after.
More on that later.
Part one of that look is a new sandwich board style sign that I made for this market.  I'll be doing a tutorial on that soon.


Thanks for letting me share my weekend with you!  
And thank you everyone who came and shopped Molly Mo's!
I really appreciate it!
A huge thank you to Diane for putting together this market and making it fabulous.
