Vintage Market

I know most of you have been as busy as I have these last couple of weeks. Spring shows abound from workshops to antique shows. It is a fun time of year and the weather here in Chicago has been near perfect. If anything it has been a little warm... dare I even say that. Everything is in bloom here and the air coming through my kitchen window this evening is sheer heaven. How I love this time of year. I hope all of you are enjoying yourself in whatever you are doing. 
I was fortunate enough to be involved in
The Vintage Market
at the lovely home of Steve and Polly. There were twelve of us selling our wares and I have to tell you what a bunch of wonderful gals they are. Everyone worked together so well and we had such a good time together. I really enjoyed everything about this event.
 There really was a great turn out,  the weather was perfect so I think that just added the crowning glory to this wonderful time.
I just want to say a great big thank you to Steve and Polly!
I took a lot of pictures so enjoy... 

Karen did such a great job with the food tent and was so good about feeding us all... thank you so much!

The gals Jude and Anne behind the counter were awesome and handled the crowds so well... and at the end of it all, no discrepancies. Talk about good under pressure. 

Nancy of Second Hand Rose  
Such a sweetheart...

Sunny with a chance of burlap and lace...

Polly,  Kim, Jeanine and Jen

 Polly's pink stove!

Ryan Steve hard at work...

Such a lovely bunch of women... working, sharing and edifying each other all weekend. God certainly hand picked this bunch!

And Steve was kept on the run...

Just a note to say thank you to all that follow my blog... it has been so wonderful getting to know you. I am sorry I haven't been able to get around and leave comments as much as I would like. I do however peek in on you when I get a spare moment.
 Look for my give away later in the week...
I have hit a 1000 followers and I would like to say thank you!

Linking up today with my friend Debra at Common Ground for her Vintage Inspiration Friday

Many Blessings
