Show pictures!

Hello Friends!


So it happened like this.............


Friday morning the show began at 10:00 am. Based on last years show I still had a good 45 minutes until the crowd got thick.


So I take my time to get my last minute stuff together.


That included getting all my bags situated...


Money in the cash register....


Credit card machine fired up.....


Check out area organized......


and


Snapping pics of the booth.


Welllllll........NONE of the above happened.


At 9:45 I had made my first sale (to another vendor) and we chatted until the show opened and by then it was too late!People were flooding in and sales were brisk all DAY!
We sold out of sleds.....





wreaths were gone.....




had to make some more that night in the hotel room.


{Let me tell ya....you get some weird looks from folks when you traipse thru the lobby at 11:00 at night with a mountain of greenery , ribbon, an old sled and berries}
I was pooped but I HAD to get some things done to be able to sell on Sat and Sun!




The old feedsack stockings were a show Best seller!




So on Sunday morning I finally got around to taking some pics for you!.


{Plus I finally got my check out area organized right before it was time to tear down!}


I love doing Christmas in red and white and it looks like the customers did too.


A HUGE thanks to all the new customers I met and also for the FABULOUS blog followers that introduced themselves too. It always so much fun to meet new friends.


With the show behind me, I am now in FULL ON CHRISTMAS DECORATING MODE at the shop!


This week you will have to enter at your own risk. It will be a disaster zone for a few days but the result is always worth it.
It's beginning to look alot like Christmas............

What great stuff! You have such a knack for decorating..I think you should be in a magazine, have you thought about it?

So glad that you had a wildly successful show, but not at all surprised. ;o) You have such a unique creative flair.

Wishing I still lived close enough; I definitely would have snagged one of those pretty wreaths!

Hugs,
Pam

Beth, there's a reason you do so well...you are simply the best at what you do.
Love your booth. Makes me happy to hear red and white was a success. That's what I'm planning on at W&T's. Let's hope the Texas people are feeling the R&W love too!
