Horton's French Market 2012

I am back from a fun filled week in Indiana, the show was a success and better yet, I got to spend some time with some of my favorite gal pals. I have to say those 3am chatterings at the table caught up to me when I got home but it was worth it!

Jody Lynn, my first born and show partner...

April Lea, Donna's only daughter and show partner...

Miss Donna herself, show producer and hostess with the mostess...

And last but by no means least Tot our little Kentucky hillbilly... 

In spite of the heat and humidity we all outdid ourselves in booth setup and design.
 Tot won the best booth award and a 100 gift cert to boot!

Because of the heat, attendance was down from last year but sales were up, so it is always hard to determine a show.

 The Horton's worked hard and Donna outdid herself on this show and I want to say a great big


and Karen Horton

The French Market at Horton's of Tipton IN,
 is in it's 4th year of production and it has really captured the essence of Provence. The minute you walk under the lavender archway you have passed quickly in time from rural Indiana to a little French marche' in the heart of Paris. 
Come walk with me and visit the French vendors of the market.

Warning... many pictures, be prepared to be inspired and 
you might want to grab a cold drink.

Cute... Holly Beth Horton rocked her space!

The shop gals and Alee always have a wonderful look...

The Secret Garden is always open at Horton's

Thank you for staying with me, I will be posting on Jody and my space at the end of the week... please stay tuned!

  21. I loved your display--the sewing machines & ribbon--so beautiful!!

  22. Looks absolutely delightful. And perfect weather, though it might have been hot. We were in Paris last year and overnight, across the street from our hotel, a flea market went up at the park. Amazing what was available. And by that evening, it was all gone -- as if it never even happened. Have a wonderful weekend. Tammy

  23. electricity compare

    It sure feels like I was there shopping with you. I love those vintage stuff. I hope I can visit the market some other time.

  24. Hi Rebecca!
    The photos are great! This was my first year attending the French Market. I was impressed by so many hand-made items. It was also good to meet you. I'm looking forward to more stories about the reservation.


  25. Glad you had a good time in Indiana! I sure wish I could have visited the flea market this year, but had other plans. So thank you for the pictures. I poured a cup of coffee and enjoyed the show!
