The Vintage Marketplace Springfield Ohio



Woohoo!! We survived {and truly thrived} The Vintage Marketplace in Springfield Ohio! 
We had a 15x30 booth space. It was a first for me having a space that large, and driving out of state, so we were in a total panic going into it. 
All the questions swirling through my head, am I bringing enough, is it good enough, can I pull this off without looking like a total newbie?

Well the verdict is in, we are already planning to go back in September!!
It was a wonderful event, excellent venue, fabulous customers and a great group of other vendors. 
I wish I had been able to make it through and say hello to everyone, but we were movin and groovin. I sold almost all of my large items and many many smalls.

I did, however, have the chance to make it to a few others near me and say hello and even get a couple of photos!!
 I met Theresa of  Time Worn Interiors


I got the chance to see the ever fabulous Jackie of Shambora Studios
again!



Urban Farmhouse was there.

 I was excited to finally meet Lesa of Salvaged to Sassy
who I have been friends with on Facebook for a bit now.



 Next door to me was Kim of Bungalow Interiors
she was just as sweet as can be! Upon packing up to leave they accidentally broke a table and asked me if I was interested in it to rehab {Uh YES please!}

 And I got to see Sue of Sullivan and Murphy 
again. {Always a pleasure}
 It wasn't ALL work, there was definitely some play.....
This is how they open wine bottles the junk style way!
 There wasn't a cork screw, so yes, they are using a drill and a screw....
My husband got the honors of popping the cork! 
{He hates this photo, so here is to hoping he doesn't read this post!}

Jon Jenkins and Sue Whitney did an amazing job of putting this show together and gathering up this fabulous group of vendors!

  9. I just saw your comment on Sue's blog and had to come over and look at your photos. Glad you had a good show. I probably stopped at your booth, but then I stopped at almost every single one (to my husband's dismay).
