I want the Polka Dot Flea to be a fun show!
This is the display that will greet shoppers when they first arrive at the air conditioned "Craft Hall" at the Central Florida Fair Grounds June 7th
Yep, I built a dock and a "Swimmin hole"
I'm having so much fun getting ready for the Polka Dot Flea!
It was such a gorgeous day here in Orlando I could hardly get these kids out of the "Water"!
Both Mom and Dad will be dressed in vintage swimsuits
This last week I met a fellow blogger from Texas, Elaine from Sisters Treasures and she has a vintage ladies swimsuit....
......And my friend Terrie from Chic to Antiques is letting me use her grandfathers grey wool swimsuit from the 40's
Thank you Terrie and Elaine!
Now, I know you all want to know....
.........How to build a swimmin hole.... lol!
I built the dock with old fence boards and a fence post I cut up, then I covered the posts with cat tails and moss
The "Water" was made by covering a Styrofoam insulation sheet with 2 rolls of blue cellophane.....I used about 20 glue sticks!
The mannequins are courtesy of Barr Display, one of the fabulous Polka Dot Flea sponsors
I took the child mannequin apart at the waist.....I crack up every time I look at the boy "Diving in the water"
I am working on so many fun things for the Polka Dot Flea....I'm having more fun than a girl deserves
Being able to share this with all of you.........As my grandmother often said.....Is "The icing on the cake"!
