Polka Dot Flea Vendors Part 2

This is Part 2 of the Polka Dot Flea (Part 1 HERE) 

The Amazing Vendors!  
This is just half of the photo's taken before the doors opened, I will show you the other half in my next post.....I guess I could title this.......Part 1 of Part 2

These are professional photos from the fabulous Lori Barbely at Lori Barbely Photography


 I want to share with you a portion of the letter we sent to the Polka Dot Flea vendors......It says it all

We are so honored that you would take a chance on our inaugural event; we know it was a leap of faith on your part. We will always think of you, our inaugural vendors, with the upmost fondness.  We were just blown away by your creative displays!  Your patience, attention to detail, and positive attitudes had us jumping through the roof with excitement.  You were truly the reason for the success of the Polka Dot Flea!




























Aren't these amazing booths....So many great ideas!

Thank you Lori Barbely Photography....Lori does photography all over Florida for weddings, engagements, portraits, and any special event.  One of the best ideas we had, was having a professional photographer.  It was so comforting to know that every special moment would be captured and I didn't have to rely on my shiny red Kodak!

See a list of all the Vendors on the Polka Flea Vendor Page

More booth photos on my next post!

Thank you all, for your continued support, and kind words...I have quite a few Polka Dot Flea posts coming up in rapid succession, so don't worry about commenting,.....Just Enjoy!

Happy Creating
Carol

It's not hard to take a chance on you Carol, you put 110% in everything you do. Would have been there in a heartbeat (if accepted) had it been a 2 dayer. Just too old to do that much work for 1 day :))
Hope you will have one closer to the Christmas holidays too.
You are gonna get sooooo BIG !

I'm commenting again because I spotted that "Chick breeding cage" or whatever it was in the last photo. I'm still sort of kicking myself for not buying that and I'm sure that the lucky couple I saw walking out with it are just tickled pick....or should I say tickled polka dot!! Fabulous stuff at this event.

Ros Crawford said...

Oh how I would have loved to have been there. The pictures make me drool!!! I would have spent all day there... just going around and around to see what I'd missed earlier. I know I'd have left with a carful of goodies.

Debbie said...

Now see, you could have hired ME to bring my shiny red Kodak, and we would have had two of them. Ha!

Seriously, so glad you got a professional because the photos are wonderful and will be excellent marketing for the next one.

It all looks beautiful,and you hit the nail on the head in your note to vendors. It's the attention to detail all the way around that makes it all look so wonderful.

Lynn @The Vintage Nest said...

It never fells to bowl me over the imagination of the vendors and their displays. Loved looking at the photos Carol. Did you sleep for 3 straight days when it was over? It all looks spectacular! xo

Holly Loves Art said...

I wish I could have attended and been a vendor too. You had some fun dealers there. I think you knocked the ball out of the park your first time at bat. Congratulations.
