I have been super busy preparing for my first big show. It was Saturday, April 27th, in Creal Springs, Illinois. I can guarantee that you all have never heard of Creal Springs, but the Blue family puts on one heck of an outdoor vintage/antique/primitive market twice a year...right on their front lawn!
There was more than 85 vendors and over 2,000 shoppers despite the chilly, rainy weather. A great time was had by all! The Gathering even made the local evening news.
I met many wonderful people and I'd like to welcome you all to my blog and to my Facebook page. For those who were unable to attend, I thought I would share some pictures of my booth. Forgive my cell phone pictures.
The crowds were lined up early to get in the gate.
And pictures of my booth.
I had a great first show! Nearly all of my pieces sold and I received many compliments on my work. It was just the ego boost I needed to feel like I'm doing the right thing by starting this little business.
Be sure to stop by and show a little love to Blue's Junk & Primitives and tell Gail I sent you!
