|Us. Taking a break in one of the adorable travel trailers. Elena loved the trailers!|
Before I left for the show, I had a nervous moment and I told my husband that I feel like I'm a nervous freshman and it's the first day of school. I was going to the show to shop and browse, but I also wanted to scope it out to see what it was like, I wanted to see if I could fit in with this crowd. I mean really, could I run with the seniors? It's a bit of a dream. My sister and I often talk about it, doing it together, someday - when the kids are older, someday - when we have time, someday - we dream about being on the vendor side of the show. So, at first I wasn't sure. I was very impressed with the displays, the inventory and the aesthetic and as I walked around the show, I started to feel more like I could fit in here. I saw a lot of items that I liked and considered buying, but I refrained because I realized I could find the same thing at a yard sale or a thrift store for a fraction of the price, or I could make that, you know - just like the vendors did. I realized I could, in fact run with the seniors, someday. I was also relieved to see a vendor or two sitting by themselves with their nose in a book, and they still seemed to be selling items. Whew! I might be able to do it after all... except, I'd bring a magazine, lots of them.
Anyways, back to the show... I snapped a few photos to share with you.
|Another adorable travel trailer. Elena decided if she had the money, she would buy it and make it into her clubhouse.|
|Books. My little girly loves her books.|
|I loved these! They were giant.|
|I loved this too. Enamelware with a spout. Awesome.|
|I loved these. Reminded me of farm-life in Minnesota.|
|Elena loved these. And I loved that she loved them.|
We wandered around for an hour or so and then we left with our three small purchases. Elena and her horse ribbons and me with these. A Princess House glass dome ($8.00) and 2 really cool linen seed bags ($10.00).
|I knew I already had the perfect size stand at home to go with it. I love it!|
|I have a certain "someone" in mind for this seed bag. Pillow or tote bag? Or, I guess it could be framed and hung on a wall. I can't decide. What do you think?|
The next "Junk Salvation" Vintage Fleamarket by The Funky Junk Sisters is in Puyallup,Wa on May 13th & 14th. Oh, I can hardly wait!
