Summer flew by this year and the past couple months I spent a lot of my time getting ready for a fun Show I just did last weekend called Junk Barn Girls in Hermiston, OR. Three friends: Alison, Angela and Katie put on this Show at the fairgrounds there and I have to say it was one of the most laid back, relaxing and fun Shows I've ever done, which is important as any of you vendors out there know how stressful it can get.
I hadn't done a Show in over a year being so busy with my kids and just needing a break for a while, so I had stockpiled quite a few goodies!
Fall Shows are always fun to add elements of nature to my displays.
Probably my favorite area of my booth was this corner with the shelf filled with ironstone. It sold pretty early into the first night so I had to disperse all these smalls elsewhere....but I was glad I had at least got some photos of it:-)
I got this table from a friend who was moving from the country to a house in town and I painted the bottom, put metal casters on it and sanded for hours....did I mention hours!!! to get all the thick dark varnish off the top. I love how it turned out and wasn't too disappointed that it didn't sell because it just might end up in my kitchen as an island. I have another similar table from their barn that I will work on next to replace it for my next Show.
The adirondack chairs were the first thing to sell Friday night and the cement swan along with the birdbath shortly after that.
Some other favorites were these horse stall doors I recently got from a friend. They have old weathered wood on the other side. It was fun to set this table with some of my items(until it sold and then I had to find another place for all of them) I guess that's why I like to take pics before the doors open.
Thanks again to the Junk Barn Girls for putting on such an amazing event!
I think I will be using my Facebook page from now on to post photos of my booths and you can follow along there to see where I will be selling next.
Enjoy the rest of your week!
