Traveling Trunk Show Sisterhood - OUR BIG SHOW!

The trunk show was a success! We had 7 wonderful vendors set up shop and sell despite the rain! The sisterhood was united and fun and friendship prevailed!
This was my VINTAGE BELLA outdoor tent area.

We had trunks!

This is the soggy Vintage Bella studio.

The Queen of Re had a marvelous selection of vintage and antique goodies!

The Queen of Re also had an indoor area to sell her wonderful handmade denim purses and piles of old quilts and sewing supplies. There was too much rain to keep the trunk show entirely outside.
There were gourmet treats by Mom's Cookies! Her snicker cookies were to die for!

My Mom sold her line of Sophia's Saponata Old World Soaps. Her booth was lovely and smelled amazing.

The Queen of Nostalgia sold very unique, vintage-inspired treasures.

The Poet's Daughter sold unique Halloween items that were flying off the shelf!

The Buzz sold a line of wonderful accessories!

There was rain!

And occasionally, there was sunshine!

Vintage Pink Plastic Little Pretty Dancers

These darling little vintage plastic buggers are about 1 1/2" tall. Dainty and darling! I have three sets of these I'm listing in my etsy store!! Each set has over 20 little pink people per listing!

Vintage Wooden People Occupations Toys circa 1940

These very cool old wooden toys are going up for sale in my etsy store. Aren't they so politically uncool? A see of light skinned men in typical job dress and the one lonely gal carrying a basket of veggies. She's just a simple housewife collecting produce for her family's dinner that she will so lovingly prepare, no doubt.


I took these photos today of the beautiful hibiscus blossom in a pot on my patio. I know by tomorrow morning the bloom will have closed up and probably fallen off. I had to preserve its beauty!

Sweet peas and bees

This is a photo I took earlier today of a bee just loving my sweet peas!!!!

Marie Antoinette Note Pad

My Marie Antoinette note pads were featured in a lovely French, red-themed treasury in etsy today. Many thanks to ThreeWishedStudio!!! These note pads and several other designs are usually available in my etsy store - when in stock!
