Marburger Spring 2011



Hey all!
Wow! What a trip!
I am happy to report that our spring show at Marburger was great!
These days you never know what to expect,
with fuel prices and many people without jobs!
But it didn't seem to hurt our sales at all!
This was the most stress free show I have ever done!
Something has changed for me!
I think I am over the hump of menopause and have started down the other side!
Yeah for me! It's been a long 10 years!
I never got bent out of shape or worried about how my booth would turn out!
Everything seemed to fall into place and I just let it be!
I hope you enjoy this pictures of my booth!
It looks a bit busy with all the zillions of smalls,
but half our sales was smalls!




  



I really love the CRAP Package thingy!
I actually thought that up on my own!



I had to sneak a couple of pics of Lillie in!
Poor thing her face is peeling,
and her eye is all runny.




P.S. I have a lot of catching up to do, visiting all your wonderful blogs!
I'll see you all soon!

She's adorable!

I saw about 100 things I wanted, and I LOVE the CRAP packages, too!

You rocked it, girl!

What a beautiful and inspiring blog. I will most certainly be back to visit.

Margo said...

It looks lovely, I'm sorry I didn't get to Marburger this year. I'm also sorry I didn't get a chance to visit with you more when I saw you. There were so many people there I wish I could have spent more time with. I still love that industrial work table, bet it sold right away.

T, Everything looks great! I am so happy you had a great sale and I am excited you're coming to Brim. The baby is BEAUTIFUL! Are you bringing her to Brim? PLEASE!

Irma@CosasBellas said...

First of all, a peeling face and runny eye takes absolutely nothing away from Lillie's beauty. She is absolutely scrumptious!
Your booth is gorgeous! I love the color scheme, the vignettes, the layout and especially all the wonderful eyecandy you have displayed!
I know what you mean, I just recently got a spot in a beautiful Antique store and the sales have been great despite the economy and it being the beginning of the year and all. I can also relate with the fact that my sales involve a lot of small items too.
There has to be something for everyone,
right?
Good to know things are going good for you.

Blessings from The OC,
Irma

Your booth looks fabulous, Theresa! Lots and lots of great stuff there. Swoon. So glad it all came together for you so easily this time, making Marburger that much more enjoyable for you (I've seen you during set-up and it's an incredible amount of work to set up and make things look like this) . p.s. your granddaughter is too precious!

I'm so happy this was a good show!! And look at your booth how could it not be???
Lovely things. Wish I could have been there.
You tickle me with the menopause thing.
I think that I will forever experience mini menopauses for the rest of my life!

Carole said...

What a doll Lillie is. I see you got an offer from Anne. Darn I'm always late on the good stuff. hahaha

I can see why you did well in spite of the economy. So I guess smalls are "in"

Too bad everything in my shop is big now:)

Did you sell your CRAP packages? I enjoyed seeing all of the metal pieces in your space. Can't wait to see more.
Love your rusty spring wall pieces too!
