The Entrance Display For The Polka Dot Flea

I would love to WOW the customers when they first walk into the air conditioned Polka Dot Flea Venue 
June 13-14  at the Central Florida Fairgrounds Orlando, Fl 


So many of you guessed it right on my last post..... I recreated the Polka Dot Flea poster...Ok, I tried to recreate the Polk Dot Flea poster


 I first built a sturdy stand that would fit over the back of the bike and covered the base with fake grass


  Then transformed drawers, boxes, and suitcases to look old





I drilled holes through everything so they would all stack on a strong sturdy plumbing pipe that screws into the wood base



The ceiling in the venue is about 40 feet high



This is what the shoppers will see first when they walk into the


It will stand over 15 feet high

I plan on adding a vintage dressed mannequin from our sponsor Barr Display to stand by the bike and fresh potted flowers around the bottom...In my vision.....It will look fabulous    


This will set the mood for a fun shopping day!

The best part.....I get to check something else off my Polka Dot Flea to do list!

Happy Creating
Carol

Carol,
I want to thank you for your prayers for my fur baby Archie. He had his surgery today and is home now. Very out of it but he should improve by tomorrow. We won't know for sure if it is cancer for two weeks. I will be beside myself.
I appreciate your kind words.
Have a lovely weekend.

Cocoanlace said...

I have an idea. Next year, create your welcoming entrance piece first. Then later make your flyer represent it, rather than the other way around. Not that you didn't do a fantastic job.
