Dalton Saturday Market & Chattanooga Market

Woo - what a weekend!

I am coming off of a great weekend at 2 totally different shows.

1st off the first Dalton Saturday Market which was a great market for its first time ever. I met some incredible people and got FANTASTIC feedback about my work. I loved the energy in Dalton and how genuinely excited people were to have this market in town. I can't wait to do more! It ended up being one of my most successful shows - especially being only 5 hours long! How wonderful. And Lynda of Another Sassy Product and I had a great set up together at both shows - we made it like we were one booth almost like a room in your home! We work so well together - and I am so thankful I have her and her or my "daughter" Alison to hang out with all day. They bring so much happiness to my world!!! Here are a few pics from the day - and look at my new set up - thanks to my parents for the awesome screens (they are from past set ups from shows long ago :) )




Then came Chattanooga Market - awesome turn out, bad winds, so-so day - I am not sure if I am meant to be at Market - not sure if it works for me or not, but I do want to try more, I have afterall done just 2...so we shall see. But if nothing else I love Paul & Chris the guys that run it - they are awesome to work with - and go out of their way to make you happy! Again I was next to Lynda - and people really loved our booths together! Here are some photos from the day! And one of my newest customers with a barrette that seemed to be made just for her!!



Now I get to go get ready for Who Fest!!

until next time...
xoxo
