What a fantastic day at Clover Market! The weather was fabulous, and the crowds were enormous! For about the first four hours of the show I couldn't even see the vendor across the way from my booth, the throng was so big.
I had a great show, and it was definitely worth all of the preparations. My good friend Karen hung out with me most of the show and stayed to help me pack up AND provided her vehicle to transport the big items back to her house that I was unable to fit in my car.
Mr. VJIMT was only available to transport items with me INTO the show, as teenaged Mr. VJIMT competed in the State Spelling Bee Championship later in the day (he finished 4th without studying a lick the whole competition and was disappointed in the result; I'm thinking it's a good lesson learned and still something to be proud of).
Here are LOTS of photos, as promised. The view is going clockwise around my booth starting from the back.
Unfortunately, I didn't bring any of these with me!
Little Miss VJIMT decorated my chalkboard frame for me.
Here are two of the six typewriters I brought with me. Glad I did, since Every. Single. One. Sold! And sold quickly!
One mom bought one (from the sixties, in a case) for her son, who admired that Bob Dylan typed his lyrics and wanted to emulate him. Another bought one for her daughter who is a copywriter. Loved that the younger generation appreciates the charm of the typewriter!
My scary doll got a lot of attention and little hands couldn't do much more damage to him!
Someone bought the green suitcase and was going to add legs and convert it into a table. I'm hoping she sends me some photos -- would love to see its afterlife.
Colleen of Fresh Vintage took pity on me and bought my crib springs so I didn't have to cram it back into my car! Drinks on me next time!
What was I thinking? Didn't bring any of these either!
And that's the day -- thanks to everyone who stopped by to say hi -- it was fun meeting you all! See more photos on the Clover Market Facebook page.
Next spring dates are May 6 and June 3; I won't be back selling until September, but am hoping to be able to go back next month to shop!
