The Chateau de Fleurs December Artisans and Vintage Vendors

The Last Marketplace of the year 2010 took place this last weekend. We had a wonderful time ..Our spirits were lifted to see all of our Friends and Customers..It's so great to get 2 full days to just enjoy such great people !

It's so hard to believe a years worth of Marketplaces have taken place... it seems like it was just January and Rita was contacting us to take place in her and Christies First marketplace ..and Abbey and I hadn't been selling anywhere except online in the last 3 yrs so we took a week to consider if we wanted to. We came to the conclusion we would try it One time and make a more permanent decision from there ...AND as you already know here we are a year later and 4 Chateau marketplaces later not to mention we threw a few others in too and now have to shops opened. It's been quite a busy year and as I look back now I can see why we've said we're TIRED ..LOL !!

We are already looking forward to next year ...and the First Chateau de Fleurs Marketplace of the year in March. Our minds are already switching up gears and thinking what we will bring into the new year ideas and new styles. It's a great thing to work in the Vintage Arena ...always creating, and displaying and challenging yourself to do new and different things.

Thank You to Christie and Rita for a Fabulous year ...if it wasn't for them ..I'm not sure what direction my life would have turned this year ..God did a Great thing when he placed them both in our lives !

Thank you to all of our Customers're the best ..!!! We Love to see you every show rather you buy something or not ! And we are so grateful to know that when you purchase something that you love a piece that we have chosen or created which keeps us moving forward.

The show this last weekend was awesome ...and now being a little more seasoned after 4 shows ..I had the time to get around and take "ALOT" of pictures of everyones shops to share with all of you. So sit back and enjoy !
