I love these action photo's of the all the shopping that went on at the Polka Dot Flea!


This just blows me away....I had no idea that the line was this long AFTER the doors opened!



















What a fun day, I loved that everyone had such a good time....There was smiles all around!

 A huge thank you to our sponsor Barr Display for the adorable Polka Dot Flea Shopping bags!

And thank you to Lori Barbely Photography for these great action shots.

I love peeking in the booths and seeing what people are buying. And you have so many ladies with cute outfits...I always notice that. I go around too bummy most of the time! lol Enjoy your day! Hugs!

Nora Miller said...

Wow, seeing the pictures leaves no doubt as to why this was a success. Unbelievable wares...I am coming next year!!

Also, I have to know - whose booth was the one with the lace camisole, did they sell the piece the woman was looking at, and do they have an online store...drooling here...

Fantastic - you had an amazing turn out and looks like everyone was doing lots of buying as well. Good luck on everything.

Great photos! I find myself Still browsing,,,,how silly! One thing I neglected to do was take photos of the lovely vintage outfits that people wore. I was so taken by the fact that so many women, (many were young, too) were totally into the event and showed it with gorgeous dresses with little sweaters, vintage scarves, jewelry, hairdos. It was amazing!

Julie Shelander said...

Took a few moments to catch up on the previous posts/photos .... oh my goodness! I was drooling over my keyboard! LOL :) You had top notch vendors who created amazing displays. Kudos to the photographer. Congratulations and I can't wait to see what is next! Hugs, Julie :)

How fun! Wish I could have been there! Looks like everyone had a great time!

April Coker said...

Congratulations on the success of the first Polka Dot Flea, Carol! Wish I could have visited it! By the way, were there any shopping bags left? If so, will you be offering those for sale? So cute!

CelestinaMarie@SouthernDayDreams said...

Carol I love these action shots of happy shoppers. The last one is awesome with the shopper carrying her shopping bag that looks framed, and, the backdrop is your lace umbrella. Love it!!
Looks like an ad for the event.
Thank you for taking us along. So enjoying these posts.
Hugs

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Love these shots of all your shoppers, Carol! I am so glad you had such a successful first outing with this endeavor. Not that I live near you, but I'm hoping you will tell us you plan on doing this once or twice a year now. I am wondering, are you missing your booth at all?

BECKY said...

I loved seeing the line...you built it and they came...and kept coming all day!! It even got down right packed for quite awhile!! So awesome!

How totally indispensable was Brad? What a wonderful son and what a wonderful job he did! Such a blessing to his awesome Mom!!

You set the mark with this flea, and the rest will be even more amazing!!

Hugs,
Becky

Carol - congratulations on such a successful show! I knew you could do it and it would be a huge success. I would have loved to have been there in that line waiting to get in to all of those fantastic booths!

Again, congratulations !

Julia - "Vintage with Laces" said...

You did such a great job, Carol. Nobody would have guessed that it was the first time you organized such a show.
I've seen so many wonderful treasures in the pictures, sigh. I wish I would have been able to visit your fantastic event.

Jane said...

Really enjoying your photo recaps! Just looking at all those shoppers carrying their Polka Dot Flea bags around is such fun - and that LONG line of folks waiting to get in - WOW! Terrific job!

Krista said...

So glad it was a huge success!

Connie said...

What a fun post . . . I love people watching. As I was going through the photos I was wondering if you planned on making this a yearly affair . . . so I'll be looking forward to your next post of the future plans for the Polka Dot Flea.
Have a fun week and enjoy :)
Connie :)

Oh my goodness, Carol! Those vendors would've had to shoo me out the door afterhours. What lovely, lovely "junque" to go through!
Can't wait to hear your thoughts for future FLEAS...

Kathy said...

Congratulations on the huge success! Fun to see how everyone was enjoying those green shopping bags.

Debbie said...

I think I might have missed part three in the hazy haze that is my life right now. I need to go back and check.

It all looks wonderful, and I mean it when I say that I want to come to the Flea. (Actually, I have a powerful hankering to be a vendor at something like this, and I DON'T have any thing to "vend". Now, when you think about it, that says something about the event, doesn't it? It makes people want to be a part of it.

Anyway, it all looks wonderful, and the best part is the fact that those people are carrying bags of goods. If the folks don't BUY, it makes the whole thing kind of useless, doesn't it? Hoping that all vendors came home with serious coin!

I've been enthralled with your photos ... What an event!

Nothing better than a ton of shoppers when you are a vendor at a flea market. That's what it's all about. Something tells me you're planning a sequel.

I could look at pictures of the event all day
I really like the last picture of the lace covered umbrella at one of the booths

Lynn @The Vintage Nest said...

fun seeing all the shoppers Carol and everyone carrying their "shopping bags". In answer to your painted furniture questions, I actually lightly "sand" the painted fabric, making it smooth as leather and do a very light waxing on it. :)

Looks like it was such fun! Congrats!

Marlynne said...

Congratulations on your very successful venture! Only wish I lived close enough to be a part of the fun!

Amy Jo said...

Wow! Isn't that great, it was fun I'm glad we got to come.

Hi Carol!
I've been travelling for several weeks so I've been having fun getting caught on your posts. I thought about you while I was gone and wondered how things went. WOW! What a big success your Flea was! CONGRATULATIONS!!!
I'm so happy for you. It looks like it was so much fun (and a pile of work, I'm sure!). I have really enjoyed all of your photos. How exciting to see many of the shoppers carrying around their Polka Dot Flea shopping bags. Have a wonderful week!

Tamara <3
