Wow....you know how you feel when you eagerly anticipate summer vacation for a long time - and when it's over, you suddenly feel like there's a new found void in your life? That's exactly how I feel this morning. We have been working non-stop for months getting ready for the Lucketts Spring Market, as well as The Vintage Home Market just a couple of weeks ago. I do have some shows lined up through the holidays, but for the next month, I can take it somewhat easy! Yay.
As far as Lucketts, I can say that it was a FABULOUS show and we had a great weekend. Luckily, the trailer was a LOT lighter coming home. :) There were some challenges with parking and traffic, but it didn't stop the crowds from getting in! We were blessed with gorgeous weather this year as opposed to the rainy weekend last year. Unfortunately, there were heavy downpours on Thursday which made for lots of mud, but it all worked out to be a great weekend!
Here are some pictures of our tent this year:
This cow painting is probably the one thing I shouldn't have let get away. :) I love her...
As you see in this picture, the line Saturday morning was very long!! Notice the pond? That is actually supposed to be the parking area... There was a lot of rain last week....
I didn't get a chance to walk around and take a lot of pictures, but here are few on our row.
I have to admit that one of the highlights of the weekend for me was finally getting a picture with Marian Parsons - aka Miss Mustard Seed. I've spoken with her several times over the years, but this time I was able to catch her Sunday morning before the crowds ascended upon us. I tried to convince her mom to join us, but couldn't get her to. They are both just the sweetest!
I learned a couple of things this weekend.... First, use sunscreen (notice the v-neck sunburn?), and I am allergic to hay. My eyes itched and swelled all weekend...but hey, it was better than having the furniture sitting in mud! One of the trade-offs of doing outdoor shows, but oh so well worth it.
Now, a couple of days of rest, then back to working the booths!
