Na Da Sale

Well that was fun.....I just posted about our event at Na Da and then deleted it by mistake. Sure can tell I  haven't used Blogger for awhile. Ok so here we go again....

Well we finally did it! We participated in our first juried Fancy Flea. We have been talking about it for a couple of years now. I have been following them across the country via blogs and facebook and thinking it looks like so much fun, would we fit in, would the customer "get" us, and of course buy what we have to offer? Well the answer is YES to all. Friday morning bright and early Molly and I picked up our van, headed to our temporary storage area in a near by town and loaded up. Earlier in the week we had done a dry run and then did some last minute refining and even painting a few things.

The 2 hour trip went well and soon we were pulling into the beautiful Na Da farm. It was all we hoped, picturesque, and teaming with vendors, trucks and trailers, kids and animals. We had 5 hours before the gates would open so we were feeling good. We had chosen a space in the barn thinking it might still be cold and rainy in May. The days were actually fairly nice but very windy so we were happy with our decision. Our space was perfect for us.

We proceeded to unload and set up while sneaking peaks at all of the beautiful booths around us. So many of the names we admire and read about on blogs. How exciting! While we found we needed everyone of those 5 hours we ended up happy with our space.
Ladies having fun

The gates were opened at 5 and instantly the barn was mobbed! It was so fun and exciting. The shoppers were all so great and loved everything. We think we found our people:) After a crazy 3 hours it was a quick but great Mexican dinner and back to the hotel. 

We loved the painted galvanize containers

We were back at Na Da by 8 the next morning. We had lots of reworking to do (thank you ladies) we had sold a cupboard and lots of smalls. While we were able to fill in and had brought extra things for this we were a little sparse on Saturday. We still had a great day. The crowds was still great but a little more relaxed. We learned so much and had so much fun. 
Color was everywhere

Everyone was so great and sweet. We can't wait to go back this fall! 

Watch for our next event in July. We head north to Door County.

Thanks to all the Vendors that were so welcoming, to all the great shoppers and mostly to Anne Marie and her family for hosting such a great event! See you soon.
