DIY grab-bags of vintage ephemera
So, I've been busy lately- really busy- getting ready for the Hawthorne Hill Farm show I'm doing next weekend. I have no idea what to expect in terms of sales- there's such a great mix of art, craft and antiques and vintage treasures at these shows that I know I'll fit in aesthetically, but it's always hard to guess how much people will actually buy, or what they're going to be in the mood for when they're out poking around.
It's been fun to prepare though- my awesome husband built me some new booth walls, I've worked up several new paintings and lots and lots of new paper-goods. I've also decided to share the wealth in terms of my ever-growing collection of vintage ephemera by putting together grab-bags filled with a whole slew of fun materials that would be great for journalling, scrapbooking and art-making. All in all, I feel like my booth will be fun to look through, even if (as we tell the kids) "it's not a buying day" for everyone.
I don't do a ton of shows- so my set up and prep is maybe not as efficient as the veterans, but I love creating a display, and I really love chatting with people who come out to look around. So if you're in the area, please stop by and say hi!
