A bazaar day

The last bazaar of the season and all through the elementary school gymnasium, not a creature was stirring, not even a...customer. But my table looked shabby chic fabulous! I started with a vintage linen tablecloth I inherited from a great aunt.

Displayed my earrings on an old shutter - it worked great!

I displayed necklaces on made-by-me stand-ups (cardboard cut to shape and covered in muslin). Also used a box I covered in old dictionary pages, a vintage mirrored tray and a few ecru colored doilies. You can still buy these goodies from my shop.

Some of my paper goods from my other shop.

Thankfully my friend Karen was selling truffles right next to me and with her, her darling 6 month old, her mom and her mother-in-law we kept each other entertained!

I did manage to get away from my table long enough to buy a cute crocheted hat with a flower and I got some beeswax and peppermint lip balm and some cut and burn salve from the Watkins man. Good stuff! And who knew it was so tiring just sitting and talking to people all day?

You're right, the table DID look Shabby Chic Fabulous! Great job. But I'm sorry the turnout was a wash. I love the old shutter idea. And the circle banners are darling.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, Molly.
