I'm Going To Be A Vendor At The Fancy Flea November 2, 2013

I'm so excited to tell you about my next adventure.  

I am going to be a vendor at the Fancy Flea for the second time November 2, 2013.  The Fancy Flea is a show that is loaded with shabby vendors.  Romantic Homes Magazine listed it as one of the top 10 flea markets in America!  It started 6 years ago and has grown to over 300 vendors.  It's advertised as a 
"Vintage Home And Garden Show"


It was previously held in the cute little historic town of Lakeland, Florida, an hour south of Orlando but, the Flea has outgrown the small town of Lakeland and is moving for the first time to the fairgrounds in Plant City, Fl. 
  
There will be tons of parking and acres of Shabby Vendors


It will be great to be able to set up the night before instead of at 4am the morning of the show and it won't be wall to wall people


Look at this booth by "Chic to Antique" at the 2011 show, the vendors go all out with their cute booths


 The last time I did the Flea was in April 2011.  It was the first and last show I have ever done.  I was so nervous and excited, you can read about it HERE.  

Oh Don't we hate pictures of ourselves...I'm much prettier and younger now lol! 

Make the picture small so no one can see you!

The show was more fun than I could have ever imagined and I sold just about everything! 


Now, as much as I loved doing the Flea, I had to conceed that I could not do it again without a lot of help.  Those of you that do shows know how labor intensive and physically exhausting they are!

So.....I'm partnering with someone.  Yes, there will be plenty of help setting up and selling at the 
Fancy Flea

So, who am I partnering with????

OOP's ..The Blog meter just ran out, I'll have tell you on my next post.

Psst...To the handful of blog friends I've told, don't spill the beans!

Happy Creating
Carol

You know the only reason you almost sold out, don't you? It's all that fabulous "stuff" you show us that the people love! Too bad I'm not closer, as I'd offer to help just for the fun of it! And I know it must be tons of work to set up, sell, and then clean up afterwards. Best of luck to you.♥♫

Doing the markets is a lot of work, but a whole lot of fun too. I'm so glad you are giving it another go.

MY SHABBY FRENCH LIFE said...

A little far away from France ! So bad ! Here in France we don't have shabby flea markets : shabby chic is not really well know, but hopefully we do have the shabby chic magazine translated and sold everywhere. I hope you'll put a lot of pictures !!! you look cute on the picture with the little French apron...
