This is going to be a followup on the Washington Market that I took part in last weekend. I’m posting it as a precursor to a Holiday Show that they are talking about having. Something new to look forward to!
I found this market to be one of the best shows not just to participate in, but also to attend. The people that were walking through and shopping were constantly complimenting on the variety and the quality of the show. To me it was like a French market except there were no flowers (which, personnally, I think would be a fine addition).
The spaces were 10’x10′ but were more of a rectangle. It worked well with my displaying my pieces along the “walls” so that potential customers could browse easily.
There were 2 long aisles with an asssortment of vendors. Fine jewelry, clothing (unique and reasonable)decorative items. And after some of investigating, there was a booth of wreaths made out of coffee filters. I had heard of them but had never seen them. They’re beautiful. Led me to watching a tutorial on making a shabby chic one. But that’s a whole nother post!
Of course, it helped that the weather was such that it would have been difficult to not enjoy oneself!
My neighbor’s were great and we watched each others’ back when it came to needing something. To the left of my booth were 2 that had a variety of vintage and antique peices.
To my right there was a booth of lovely 2 and 3 tiered dishes hand assembled and cut. Also next to that booth was one of large furniture pieces painted very French-like.
All in all, it was quite an enjoyable weekend. It had been so long since participating in a show and I really don’t remember such a comfortable surrounding as this.
I hope this post maybe entices you to get out and visit a market this season. If not one that I am in then any one to get into the changing season. (I am sending in an application for a market in Morris in October called The Three French Hens Country Market. It is held every 2nd Saturday from April to October) Wish me luck! I will be posting about a few of the peices I have left from Washington Market and some ofthe new transformations coming up.
Have a great weekend! Bundle up if your in the neighborhood, going to be a chilly one!
