The really good thing about it was that it made me rethink my whole business and where I want to do from here. Suffice to say I'm downsizing and going back to my original idea from eight years ago that I just want to do my art. I do love painting and playing with furniture but, now that I've given up all but the closet space at the shop, I have no outlet for it nor do I wish to.
Carrying the furniture around is what makes all us dealers cranky. Actually it's the carrying back out and packing back into the truck to take home makes us really cranky!
I can't stop making art and playing with small pieces; I might as well check into the local rubber room and start drooling as a career. Art is my sanity-no comment-it just is.
I like it and eventually someone else comes along who "gets" me and I keep agoing. I hope to open a web store before the end of the year and keep my little closet going.
I do enjoy the setting up and rearranging, etc. but I might be able to get that another way...working on ideas.
There was the cutest girl with the cutest booth there. Every single thing was pink-how could you go wrong? You can't! You can check her out at Rustiqua.com
Of course I scooped up a couple of pink treasures from here, durrrrr! See the pink polka dots on the dresser mirror? OMG!
Long time fave, Stacey Bear, was there. She does the show twice a year and her booth is always a candy store for grown ups. Yum! Snail with sea shell shell, bunny, and beehive pin cushions.

Cute booth overview.
Oh, wrap me in ribbon!
I met two new cute girls from Luckett's. Their booth was so great. As soon as I can find/remember their info I shall share.
See, cool booth, ey?
And so much this and that like this cute scooter on the little white bench...
...antique Jack-in-the-box...old and still scary!...
