True Farmhouse Blessings from above !

We're over the moon excited ...about this last weekends marketplace ...!

The Lord sprinkled True Farmhouse Blessings on us all weekend .. to him be the Glory !

Thank You so much to Christie Repasy and Rita Reade for hosting a wonderful marketplace at the Oaks !

These two wonderfully hardworking and talented ladies along with Rita's husband Dean did an amazing job getting over 30 of us into the oaks park in just 1 day. Quite a task it was ..but they did it with amazing finesse and perfection ... !

Being that we were setting up in a new location for the first time I know Abbey and I were a little nervous on how the turnout would be ... within the first 30 minutes of opening on Friday morning ...all those rumbly in the tumblies and butterflies dancing ...were all gone we had a Truly Amazing turnout ..and I'm thrilled for everyone ! I think we are all always happy to stay put with the "bird inthe hand" if you will ..and sometimes fear change and new ways ..however this change and new way ..really came out wonderfully.

I think the only thing that changed with this show was the sheer size of it ..of course much larger ..which for us vendors took away the intimacy of being nearer each other and chatting more. But I must admit ..I spent so much time visiting with Friends and Customers that came to shop ..that, that was such a joy in and of itself. Meeting up with old friends ..and new faces ..and learning new names and making new friends ..was just purely a pleasure !

I was truly honored and humbled a sweet girl ..that came quite a distance to buy one of our Paper Roses and meet us .. Kristin ( i hope i spelled your name right) was such a pleasure to meet you ..I'm looking forward to seeing you in September ..and bring those girlfriends of yours this time ..even if you have to drag them ..LOL ! You Made my day Saturday !

Because this marketplace has grown so much ..and honestly we were so busy both days ..I was hard pressed to get any additional pictures other than our own shop right before we opened on Friday morning. However ...if you visit the wall on the Vintage Marketplace at the Oaks FB page ..Rita and Christie Hired on Claire Brocato to photograph the marketplace ..(so smart on their part) ...I'll post a link at the bottom of this post for you all !

So here's our Shop ..for those of you who were unable to attend or to far away to attend ..and here's what our suprise set up and display was !

We decided to create a Faux Farmhouse front to our shop ..from old Shutters doors and windows ..and give our entire shop the true Farmhouse treatment ..from the Outside to the inside ...

Welcome to Our Farmhouse ..Come on in The Doors always Open !

We hope you have enjoyed a little bit of our farmhouse ...and we welcome you to visit again in Sept ... Yes Sept. we'll be doing this all over again.. Abbey and I are already designing our next shop ..and we can't wait to bring you a delightful Fall Farmhouse....

Visit the Vintage Marketplace at the Oaks FB page HERE to see the other vendors shops ...and displays ...

Sending you all many Farmhouse Blessings !
