Fancy Flea Lakeland Florida November 12, 2011

Well, it's been a few days since I set up at the Fancy Flea and I have to tell you it was quite an experience. I was just amazed at the number of people who came to shop. I have set up at venues before where people would come "just to look" or "kill time" but no such thing here. I saw a lot of serious shoppers to say the least. Good thing I packed extra stuff because I had to keep restocking my booth.
My friend Paula, who I shared space with, sold a lot of treasures as well. We are both pleased with our sales.
Just from looking at all the wonderful, creative booths I could tell all the vendors worked very hard preparing for this day.
I have posted a few pictures. Some I took, some my friend Kiki took. You won't see many pictures of my space because I never really fully got set up the way I wanted to. I got hit hard and early with shoppers, which is a good thing.
I want to thank everyone who came to my booth. Even those who just came to say hello. And I really want to thank Mr. Shabby For Sure for pitching in to help me. He got up at 2:30 a.m. to walk our dog, have breakfast, and then drive for an hour to help me set up and unload. He kept our little antique shop open Saturday then came back in the evening to help me break down and load up. It was a very long day for us and all the other vendors as well. Everyone I talked to was exhausted but seemed to be happy like us.
And I must mention how impressed I am with Lori Powell for creating this event and organizing it to run so smoothly. She sure had a wonderful vision.

Thanks to everyone for making the Fancy Flea such a fun experience.

I am a new blogger.

Hi Everyone, This is my first attempt at blogging so please bear with me while I try to figure everything out. I'm not even sure what I will be posting to this blog. I have a little Antique shop in Central Florida so I will probably show interesting, pretty things I have. Thanks for stopping by. I hope to see you again in the future.
