After the Show

The farm chicks show was a blast. Thank you thank you to everyone who came out and shopped at our booth. I was blown away! It was so much fun meeting you all and chatting. And thank you Serena for putting on a fabulous show.

I am going to go back a little bit. The last few weeks have been crazy. On Wednesday we had some friends over and ordered pizza and worked on pricing.

Thursday was spent packing everything up, Jessica came over, yay!

Friday was the big set up day. Unfortunately it was pouring outside. This was our first time at the show and when we walked in with our first load to set up, panic set in. I felt completely intimidated. Everyone had really cool stuff, I didn't think we measured up. I tried to relax and just focus on the set up. That day flew by. We worked the whole day and just barely got set up in time. But this was the fun part, making it all look pretty.

Saturday was the day of the show. It was bright and sunny, a welcome change from all the rain. We had so much fun! We met so many great people. We loved our neighbors, they were so sweet. We had Blue Canoe across from us and TippyStockton was right next to us. They were all so sweet and had the greatest stuff. The imagination of everyone there is out of this world. The set ups are top notch. It was busy Saturday! I guess over 4,000 shoppers came on Saturday!

And Saturday night Celeste threw the greatest party. That is a whole other post. It felt like a wedding reception. It was so much fun! More pictures soon! I'm going to post pictures of other booths tomorrow. I'm also going to update my much neglected etsy shop this week.

That pop of fun farmy color was so refreshing in a sea of white and burlap. I love the color and the whimsical fun feeling your booth gave to my mom and I! I'm bookmarking your etsy site right now!

I'm kicking myself for not purchasing those hoops. I thought about them all weekend. Good to know you have an Etsy shop!!! I'll order them through there. :)

I love Chantel's discription of your booth being like a candy shoppe. You did such a gorgeous job with your booth and you and Sam + Jess make such a super great team. Loved seeing your success. Any talk of "next year" ? I am dreaming about a booth of my own now. You and Courtney have so inspired me. And thank you for all the little extras...you really shouldn't have...no one told me that the week after F.C. would feel like the week after Christmas...
So blown away by you girls...you were amazing! Lets try and get together soon friend...

Hi Becca,
It was great to meet you at the show (My mom was Sam's Kindergarten teacher) and I think your booth was fabulous! The two of you make a great team. I just wanted to say Hi and I think it will be fun to follow your blog.

Hi Becca

I was so happy to meet you finally. Your booth was AWESOME... What a refreshing breath of fresh air against all the neutral colors at the show. Don't ever be intimidated by other vendors booths. You have your own UNIQUE style, embrace it, build on it. You stand out in a crowd, and that is a really GOOD thing. I hope to see you at Harvest Treasures in August at GardenStone.

I can't believe how much stuff you had! It was displayed very well! Wish I could have been there! Next year...
