After all of the craziness leading up to the Polka Dot Flea I am just kicking back and loving it!
I have taken a total break from creative endeavors and turned my attention to doing my very late spring cleaning. I've washed all of the furniture slip covers and all of the windows in the house. Then I hand washed and polished all of my wood floors (Hands and Knees washing) and all of the baseboards.......Whew, it feels great to have it all done!
The first items to sell were the lace covered lamp shades and this cute vintage suitcase, both of these items I had on FB...So shoppers made a beeline to them
I was surprised that ALL of these shabby candle holders sold throughout the day.....They sure are an easy item to find and transform for all of you that have booths and do shows.....I'm certainly going to keep my eyes open for more!
I sold many tussie mussies, vintage slips, frames, vintage sewing patterns and teacup sets. Cups and saucers were hot then cooled off and are once again in demand. I also sold all of my chairs.....
Now, what did not sell......My mosaic dress form....She did get a lot of attention though.
I only sold about 1/4 of my jewelry. I've never made or sold jewelry, I think the prices were right so I am going to give them a another try at the next show.
Right now, even though I am SO EXCITED to do another show..... I am busy running the calculator and working with the fairgrounds to make sure it is financially feasible. I want to triple the space and do a two day show but, at the same time not compromise on any of the details that made the first show such a huge success!
Stay tuned....You will be the first to know!
In the meantime, I hope you are all enjoying the summer like I am...Kicking back and having fun!
