The Vintage Bricoleur @ Remnants of the Past Fall 2011

Pin It
We are home now after a whirlwind weekend. 
 The Remnants of the Past show at the Modonna Inn Expo Center was a great time of selling, seeing old friends, meeting new ones, a lot of hard work, good memories and the list goes on.

I have so many photos to share, but I want to start with showing you some from our space.  We had three spaces outside under a big white tent.  We loved the open air market feel.
 On to the pictures.
The truck and trailer are unloaded. Now what do we do with all this stuff!

Our space ready to go.

This is how it looked the second morning.  It is hard to tell, but a lot of stuff is gone.

The pretty handmade soaps that my daughter makes.

The crew, Danny, Terry, Angela, Don, Coralie.
 (Missing Melanie, Don's wife, who worked all day Friday helping us set up.  She was home taking care of three adorable little boys.)

This solar water fountain was a hit.  The little cabinet sold first thing.

Lots of frames, mirors, antlers, metal and a sheet music wreath.

A farm table set for two.

The letters sold just before opening, to another vendor.

We had a light hanging through our make-shift ceiling.  Wire and lace.

Fun little bottles with initials

Moments before the show opened, the line waiting to get in.  If you have seen a layout of the show, then you will know that it was a LONG line.

Another shot looking through our space.

I think this one is my favorite.

I love a little touch of green.

Make way for Ducklings!

A little French table and chair set, salvage architectural and old windows.

These letters were fun.  I also love those boxes full of old Pharmacy papers.

Awesome French doors, sound pieces from a pipe organ, and a beautiful mirror that went home with
We want to say thanks to Judy and her family for putting on such an incredible show.

These are just some of my favorite pics of our space.  Be watching for more about the show.

Thanks for looking!
