Eye Candy From Fellow Vendors At The Fancy Flea


I wanted to give you a glimpse of some of the other vendors at the Fancy Flea, their booths were so crazy cute.   I was only able to walk down 4 booths on each side, so I missed so many of my friends!  There was 218 vendors.......Here's a glimpse of just a few!

This is Cassandra Van Curen  and her friend Karen Hillman





These are my friends Sue and Kathy from Chic and Shabby




This is Paris Rags



Sylvia from My Trinkets





My friend Denise from Rusty Gate Antiques got a great picture of the crowd


Can you believe all of these shoppers!! 

 What a day,what gorgeous booths, I really believe a huge key to getting sales is in the presentation, and these talented ladies sure gave me something to aspire to!

Happy Creating!
Carol

Wow, it all looks amazing!! I see a few things I like :) I read your previous posts, and so glad you sold quite a few things!! Especially your larger pieces, yeah!! You'll have to have a partner with you next time to help out, so you can get a chance to see all the other sellers and booths, and to do a little shopping :)

Have a great week!

Marti said...

Definitely sensory overload. Too many wonderful things!

Will be thrilled when it is warmer here and we are able to have sales again.
Thanks for sharing sweetie

Hi Carol,
I would have a hard time not buying all of this pretty stuff.
Paris Rags is so wonderful. I follow them on FB and everytime they post something new, it sells.

I'm so glad that you had fun.

Such a beautiful setting for such beautiful booths of goodness. How perfectly you and your goodies fit right in. I can only imagine what you would have acquired if you had not been busy with sales of your own. More help next year so you too can "browse". A full trailer going and a full trailer returning. :o)
Presentation is the key...but pleasant people and lots of smiles is even more important.

Carol, I am amazed at the huge crowd browsing and shopping. Don't see how you were able to watch over your things, answer questions, make change, etc. That would have freaked me out. It looks like there was a little bit of everything for sale. I'm sure it was a fun day for shoppers.
Thanks for showing us all the pretty things we missed.------Shannon

Nora said...

Wow, it looks wonderful. Wish I could have been there to shop! I agree that I would have been overwhelmed with the crowd, kudos to you for this this all alone!

Just amazing everywhere you look! I would love to come sometime...what a sale! I'm glad you had good weather, too! Enjoy your week! We're still in NC but hope to be back in sunny FL soon! Hugs!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Great pictures, Carol! It looks like it was a great day, both weather wise and the turn-out. Nice to see you guys weren't in full sun with no trees around! I just ordered a top from Paris Rags online shop!

Lauren @ My Wonderfully Made said...

Wow! THAT is my kind of shopping experience! So many great booths and on such a beautiful day!

Krista said...

Just found your blog and I love it!! Such cute things!

marda said...

It looks amazing...I would have needed a cart/wagon to haul all the things I'd have bought!!! I certainly would have grabbed the curio and laundry sign... and I see a fantastic bell jar I would have grabbed in a heartbeat. It's been years since I've had the opportunity to shop in a venue like this.. maybe that's a good thing... but I sure do miss it.

Amy Jo said...

It definitely was crazy with all of the shoppers! I had a hard time getting into some of the booths it was so packed... But I had so much fun... I can't wait to go back again.

Shabby chic Sandy said...

These photos are amazing--I want everything I saw!

Tracy said...

Wow, fabulous booths and a great turnout! I would have done some major damage to my checking account at this!

Marydon said...

TY Carol ... it was religion & because of such a short time knowing one another.

I still lust that pink dress in that gal's space ... it is to adore.

Have a beautiful week ~

Thank you so much for telling us about your experience at the fancy flea. I am participating in my first ever antiques fair. It is next month & I have been searching for helpful blogs such as yours! I have enjoyed my visits to your blog and will be back to visit often! If you know of any other blogs I can visit to find more helpful hints I'd love to know. Loved your treasures.
Blessings, Aimee

Debbie said...

I can totally see how just strolling among those booths would get the creative juices flowing in a huge way. I would love to make this a little road trip with some friends. I need to do a little research and see if they have anything even remotely similar a little closer to home.

Sisters Treasures said...

Carol, you and your fellow vendors do "get" the importance of presentation in venue shows.
I love all the great vignettes in the booths and am going to look up some online.
I'm so glad you had an overall great experience.

Now, that is just a feast for the eyes!! I would love to shop and just take my time looking at each and every treasure!

HeartVintageDesign said...

Great post Carol and thank you for including mine : ) By the time that pic was taken, I'd already sold the display along with most of the stuff I'd brought except the pillows. Everyone we met was great, I wish I'd had more time to browse : )

Soo pretty! Wonderful photos thanks so much for sharing!! I also enjoyed your article on what didn't sell. It was wonderful meeting you!

Hi Carol,
The weather was horrible in Miami that weekend, so I didn't want to chance such a long drive. Boo, hoo!
It was a fabulous show I can tell and your booth looks awesome. Glad you did so well.
Hugs,
Patti
