Many Thanks To Rita And Christie of The Vintage Marketplace at the Oaks

Well it's been a whirlwind of a last month .. but it's been a good whirlwind !
Last month about 3 weeks before the Market we had to call Rita and Christie and graciously cancel being there ..which was really hard to do. I'm one of those people that once I make a commitment I don't like to break it. But this was a situation that just couldn't be helped.
Well a few days later Rita came up with an idea for us to be able to come and sell at the market ..
They have a vintage truck at the entrance for a cute display ..and she thought that us selling out of the truck would make it easier on us so we didn't have the huge 2 tent setup we normally do. I immediately took her up on it .. they were trying to meet us halfway to get us there and I most definitely wanted to meet them halfway to get there.
So it all worked out .. I ended up going on my own .. and setting up  and selling which worked out beautifully.
Oh my heavens was it ever a hot hot weekend in the high 90's and 100's and being near that black asphalt was no dream ..but hey I was just thankful to be there. So on Friday in the afternoon when it got way too hot ..Should I say Sweltering ! ... I got a bag of Ice and plopped it into the plastic tub my merchandise bags were in ."yes I took the bags out" .. and put my feet down in all that ice ... and  within minutes I was feeling so much better. Saturday Proved to be another day of icing the feet ..and my mini foot pool caught on with some of the other sellers ..galvanized pans were being bought and sold from seller to seller for mini foot pools .. LOL !
Thank You To Rita and Christie for offering up a way to sell at the Market ! ...I had the best time and really enjoyed setting up in the Vintage Truck !
Thanks to Dean and Sylvia and Rita and Christie and everyone else who came and checked on me periodically for food and water .. you were all such a blessing !
And A big Thanks to everyone who came out in the "Sweltering" heat and once again shopped and supported all the small business that makes up "The Vintage Marketplace" ... I cannot tell you all how much it means not only to myself but each seller out there to have you all come !
So for those of you who live to far off or who couldn't make it to this market .. Here's picts of our setup in the Vintage Truck  next to the entrance of the Market ..

  5. Sara, the vintage truck looked so good with your items in there. I had planned on coming but due to the very HOT weather I could not make it as I have COPD and cannot be out in the extreme heat.
    The pictures are great and I was happy to hear that it was a success.
