Setting Up A Holiday Booth.

When I closed my booth of 13 years last spring to focus on the Polka Dot Flea I had 6 bins of vintage holiday goodies still in storage  


This is where my friend Terrie Ireland came in.  She just opened Vintage Living Marketplace in Rockledge Florida, a short 1 hour drive from Orlando.  Terrie invited me to sell my holiday wares in a small booth space at her market.



I am only going to be there through the holiday season



I apologize for the worst pictures ever.....I forgot my camera, these were taken with my iphone and my booth has no natural light



Vintage Living Marketplace is absolutely gorgeous.  The venue was previously a high end kitchen store, so each vendor is set up in one of the many rooms in the store.



Do you ever find yourself standing on your head trying to see price tags on other blogs......No secrets here at The Polka Dot Closet




What an honor to be in a Market with so many of the who's who in Central Florida vendors.   Here's a look inside some of their booths.








I had so much fun setting up a booth again.......Thank you Terrie for finding me a space at Vintage Living Marketplace!!!


 I am so thankful for how my world has been enriched and all of the wonderful friends I have made by simply pushing ......

I wish you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!!


Happy Creating

Carol

Hi Carol, your booth is wonderful. I love those bottle brush trees and that scale is awesome. I love how you ended this post. You said what we are all thinking . . . Blogging is so much more than any of us thought. It is such an amazing place to connect with other women with common interests and to share our lives and grow wonderful friendships. Who knew?
Here's wishing you a delightful Thanksgiving and an amazing Christmas booth experience.
Love, Connie :)

Laurie M said...

what a perfect place to sell your goods, I wish you many sales and a Happy Happy Thanksgiving! I love your honesty, you are such a class act, lol, so much lovely to see, I could spend hours browsing there, I love the old bottle brush trees, they are hard to find here, they have new ones but they just aren't the same are they,,,

Teresa said...

The other day I found an angel in pinterest, dressed in a vintage gown, and I though of you and wondered if you did this. So glad to see the answer...
And your booth looks pretty much what I imagined for it; down to the kindness of offering honest and in view prices ahahahahah
I hope you have a great time - what wonderful partners-in-crime you have - and that the sale is a success to put a huge smile through the Holidays.
Enjoy and Have Fun!
Teresa
