I've had an antiques booth for years, but I have always wanted to do a show, or a fair, or whatever you want to call it. I thought maybe it was a pipe dream, I would need a tent, and a trailer or rental truck to get my wares to the fair, then someone to drive the truck and I couldn't do a show alone.
Then when I had my annual Ladies Champagne brunch in December
I was telling one of my friends about the "Fancy Flea" (I called it Shabby Flea in my post, it's tough being blonde) I went to in November, I said "I would love to do a show like that some day".

She said "I'll do it with you, I have an enclosed trailer and a tent" (She's my friend and you can't have her)!
So, I'm off on my adventure!

In Downtown Lakeland Florida, a cute little historic town 1 hour south of Orlando and a 1/2 hour north of Tampa
Lets see, I need to get crackin on merchandise. I think the aprons will sell well
And I made up some tussie mussies
Now I think I'm a hat milliner, I have a dozen vintage hats, but they are all plain and need some fancying up, they should be perfect for the Flea. I'll keep you posted as I attempt to fancy up these hats!
I'm on the look out for a ton of small tables, chairs and stools. I found this little gem just as she is and added a waterslide decal. Ok, I have one piece of furniture done!
This is going to be so fun!
I'm gratefully accepting any and all advise and tips!
