We're back ..from ...The Vintage Marketplace at the Oaks

 
Yes We are Back from the Vintage Marketplace at the Oaks this last weekend .."Friday & Saturday"..
 
In the last 3 years of setting up at the Market we have faced the Extreme Heat .. the Wind and a bit of cold but we never had to face a rainy day or more than that several rainy days. The Market has always been Rain or Shine ..but We have always been so blessed and it's always weighed out on the side of "Shine" So we weren't sure what to expect for a turnout on Friday Morning.
 
We all set up and prepped for the rain and hoped and hoped we would have a good turnout despite the rain ..and we weren't dissapointed !!!
 
Friday Morning opened with a wonderful suprise we had an amazing turnout .. it drizzled ..it sprinkled.. it even poured down rain a few times and steadily rained throughout friday and it was a bit damp to say the least ..but I must admit it really put you in the mood for Christmas in comparison to many of our years being 80 degrees and sunny and trying to decide on buying a snowman or not ..LOL !!!
 
To all who came out and braved the wet and kicked your heels up in the puddles and dawned your hoodies and carried your Brellas .. "Thank You" .. We really put alot of work and heart for many weeks before each market preparing a wonderful experience for all of our sweet shoppers and we are thrilled you came out and supported us once again !
 
So for those of you far away who couldn't make it or for those of you who just couldn't make it ..here's a little peek at what you all missed ...
 
 
 
We set up our Christmas Shop once again this year .. And we had a few more colorful things that would have been displayed out front but the rain would have ruined them ..so our 5ft Wood trees had to do the job all on their own ..
 

 Thank Goodness we had my Sis's Tent ..and we set up a second tent to sit under and allow for our cashier area to remain dry... The Tents overlapped just enough that you could walk through from one to the other .. keeping everyone dry ...
 




 The table was decked out with Wonderful Vintage Goods along with our Handmade Christmas Goods ..and trimmed with a wonderful Jingle Bell Ribbon...




 Abbey and I love Old Christmas Bells ..and this set that hung above the table is from our personal collection ..they weren't for sale just purely for decoration ..we found them a year ago at a wonderful Barn Sale ..they date to the 1950's - 60's and are paper Mache with their orginal glitter .. Abbey Topped them with some of our wonderful poinsettias and they looked just stunning hung over the center table ...




 Our Glass Glittered Roses were once again a hit ..and an abundance of them headed off to a Winter Wedding ....



 Our Vintage Lace Ornaments ..Made their way home to lots of Christmas Trees.. Wreaths ..and Mantles ..bringing Much Christmas Cheer ...
 







 The Crates were filled with Christmas Towels and Aprons ..and By Saturday afternoon ..they were all gone ...












 
Once Again and despite the wet weather .. the Marketplace was an absolute success for not only us but all the other shops as well...
 
It was such a joy to see all of the familiar faces we know from each market and to meet new faces too !
 
Thank you to all the Ladies that came by Bus to shop .. and those that made lengthy trips from out of state !
 
And Thank you again to Christie, Rita, Dean, And the boys for all you do to keep the market going and running smoothly ... !!!
 
For those of you who could not make the market .. I have listed lots of new Christmas Goods in our Shop today HERE   and will be adding more tomorrow as well..
 
Wishing you all a Merry Christmas from the Sweet Magnolias ...Sara and Abbey !
