Country Living Fair - Post 1 of many!
I have so many photos to share, that I thought it would be nice to drag it over the week a bit!
We had an amazing time at the Country Living Fair in Atlanta this past weekend. I wasn't sure we were going to make it at first. Jared had a bad stomach virus early in the week and when it was time to leave Wednesday night he had a high fever, chills and couldn't keep his eyes open. So. . . we waited until 5:00 the next morning when he at least had the strength to drive. When we got there Melissa and I unloaded the trailer while he slept for 4 hours in the truck! He got much better as the days went on thankfully. So here are a few highlights with more to come this week. . .
One of my favorite things in the booth - snatched up on the first day by this lucky gal (maybe she will post)! I had to look forever for an affordable red truck to use - old men in overalls love the rusted metal at auctions and I never win!!
We were nestled in the trees which was both lovely and challenging (lovely because the trees made great props but challenging to get a trailer through).
We sold almost all of the bundled books (the leftover parts from my Old Book Cover Journal Class), all of the vellum stencils and the wonderful wool blanket went home with Country Living editor in chief Sarah Gray Miller who I had the pleasure to meet at the show.
Just a little peek at the booth on Friday . . .
One of my favorite vintage store displays for "Hair Nets". Our Vintage Sew On Buttons fit perfectly in there. This was definitely the JBS product that sold the most. . .
Jared was the King of the checkout the entire weekend. We made a great little desk from a vintage plant stand and a heavy pewter tray I had. It worked perfectly - so perfectly that I decided not to sell either piece. . .
Vintage red tins (is there any other color?) and button cards on a vintage ironing board (a.k.a. a great fold-up table)!
