Fantastic Show at Expo

Expo was a big blur, just like this picture.....

This is how it went down. Thursday morning Marci from Cottage Lights picked me up at 8am. We were off to Carson for some last minute junkin. What was I thinking?????? We went through 9 outbuildings...Oh my. I was a little overwhelmed. Purchased our incredible finds, load up the truck (boy was it loaded) head back to Camas, unload the truck, load the truck for expo, head to expo, unload the expedition, unload the truck, Christa comes, unload her expedition.

Friday, up early head to expo (after Starbucks of course) we start setting up, half way done, Marco ( a dealer from Japan) comes and buys most of our furniture, now we need a new layout and MORE STUFF!!! Set up number 2 almost done when another dealer bumps my upper cabinet and tips it over breaking a bunch of vintage perfume bottles, set up again......Needless to say it was a scary, awesome and a exciting experience and we can't wait to do it again in July. This time we will be outside sharing two spots with Marci. Monday I spent the entire day junkin, those pictures will be posted soon.

We met some fantastic new friends and signed up some great vendors for the Whimsical Wishes show in April. Kay from Surprised by Joy will be at our show and Marci from Cottage Lights will also be a vendor.

Sure to be stocked full of fabulous finds.

I did manage to get a few pictures of our booth, between the waves of customers.
