My Vintage Market Booth

First off - Happy Dad's Day to all the wonderful dad's out there - especially mine.  My dad helped me out at the vintage market this weekend.  I think he's starting to get the hang of it.  He was a pretty good salesman.  Mom helped too - she's great at organizing and packing.  So you can see why I need them both!  I'm so lucky to have such supportive parents.

Anyway, I finally remembered (and had time) to take pictures about 5 minutes before the gates opened at 8am on Saturday morning.  Here's what we came up with in the 2 hours we had to set up.  Also, during set up is when the dealers usually shop, so there are a few in the pictures (and mom and dad).

I bought some a lot of linens off of one of the dealers who was destashing because she was trying to start her own sewing business.  It never hurts to ask, "How much for all of them?"

It was a beautiful day, I met lots of great people, and unfortunately this will be my last market until August, because I have a summer class I have to take for my Masters program (at Butler - Go Bulldogs!).  It meets on Saturdays, which means less auctions and junkin.

If you saw anything from above that you just have to have - please email me (melissasantiques AT gmail DOT com).  If you're local you can come pick it up.  If you're not, I can list on etsy and will ship to you.
