My Mom and I had a booth at The Pec Thing a couple weekends ago. You may remember we did it for the canadian viagra last fall. We set up a touch differently this time. I do believe we had more stuff too! How is that possible?

Our booth set up was nicer this year in that we utilized the back wall by hanging thing directly on it and we set up a long table with tall shelves at one end which gave us a nice separation from the next booth.

I also made that Super long (27′+) garland from fun vintage and new fabrics and doilies. It helped define our space and looked cute, if I do say so myself. I think I am going to try and find a space for it in my sewing space, or part of it. Otherwise it may be put up for sale on etsy soon. But I love it so much! :)

Our Goal was to get rid of the bigger stuff! :) I should have taken a picture at the end. It did look a lot different. But we still have plenty left. Surprisingly enough suitcases where not as big as they were last year. Who would have guessed? Globes are still hot though and we sold all of ours as proof.

 

We are not sure if we will be doing The Pec Thing in September. Well I know I won’t be selling, I may help my mom a little bit if she does. I am guessing having a 2-3 month old may make it a challenge.  But we hope to do it again maybe next year in one of the buildings where everything isn’t covered in dust at the end of the weekend. The only downside to the show is really the dustiness, well and how HOT it was this year. Yuck! Don’t do a Flea Market when your 9 months pregnant, it’s a little brutal! :)

 

The fun news is we are going to try really hard to get into Kane County Flea Market next spring/summer. We attended this past Saturday and feel like we would be a better fit there, along with have better traffic and more appropriate clientele. It will be a fun and exciting new venture to try another venue.

 

I hope you enjoyed the little booth tour and if your on Instagram look for a flash sale sometime later this summer. I am not sure that I will get around to it in the next three weeks before Norah is due. But you never now! :)

Another week another weekend! Yay! My little family and I have nothing planned this weekend and I am so happy about that. We will be enjoying the lovely fall weather, putting up some fun fall decorations, spending lots of cozy time together, and maybe tackling a small house project or two. What are you plans for this weekend?

Here’s a peek at the past week via my phone and instagram, my favorite! Linking up with Jeanett from liferearranged!

My mom and I had our first Flea Market booth last weekend (blogged) / Drive home from the flea / A $1 spray bottle makes for a happy boy

So… Yes, I had a Flea Market Booth and I sold lots of stuff. But I also bought a few things! ;) So I thought I would share with you guys!

I found some truly fantastic stuff! Several feed sacks, some of which are bright yellow (already working on a project with these), a lovely vintage quilt top for $10 (It is in rough shape so I will be cutting it up), some fun quilt blocks,  an awesome suitcase, some mini glass ornaments, a giant world map, canadian pharmacy order viagra label, a playskool wooden mailbox, the cool canvas is hand written and I LOVE it, a and can you even handle the christmas tin? I couldn’t and for $1 I HAD to buy it.

 

Yes, I may have too much fun at Flea Markets! My favorite score to date is a vintage USA pull down map in the yummiest of colors. You may have caught a glimpse of it in various home pictures. It cost me a whopping $6. Have you ever scored big or found one of your favorite treasures at a flea market?

My Mom and I participated in our first Flea Market this weekend! It was awesome. This is our booth. Vintage Trunk, my mom came up with the name. We had such a blast, preparing and setting up the booth. It is so much fun to be validated by selling vintage you find to someone else.  LOVE IT. I will hopefully be doing a little etsy sale of some vintage in my currently closed woollypetalsvintage. So stayed tuned. In the meantime take a walk around our booth.

The check out area. I sketched our logo I designed onto a chalkboard for a booth sign.

Some furniture and toys.

This was a fun display of linens and kitchen utensils.

The school and travel stuff. Every one of those globes sold. And some of the luggage too.

Christmas, not as popular as we expected but we’ve still got a bit of time before the Season starts.

Some trays, lampshades, art, and fun mid century lamp, and some embroidery I did.

Some embroidery pieces will be making there way into the shop.

Lots of dishes and randoms things.

Graters, sifters, and games. Oh My!

Thermos’ and bundt tins.

Some vintage fabric garlands.

And back to the sign and the checkout spot.

We participated in The Pec Thing in Pecatonica, IL. It is a good sized show and had record attendance this weekend. If you are ever in or around Rockford (closest big city) in September or May you must attend.

We have a lot to learn, but we had a blast and did super well. I can NOT wait for the spring show. Now I get to shop some more. ;)

This week and last week I have been prepping for my first Flea Market.I have a booth with my mom. I am excited, nervous, and I am sure will be exhausted after the weekend.

So this week may be a little light on posts, but I will be sure to post pictures of our booth next week. I will be taking some handmade items too, and I am contemplating a pop up shop for left over vintage after the flea.

In the meantime, here’s a bunch of the stuff before pricing. Pardon the blurry pictures these are all taken with my phone.
