To Market To Market

Here are some pictures from the last hurrah of the Christmas selling season...



On Wednesday night I set up my little table for a Holiday Market that accompanies a Women's Christmas Banquet at a Fellowship North. The event had been rescheduled twice due to nasty ice storms, but it finally came together and boy was I glad!


I began joking that I was going to have to host a sale in my living room in order to get rid of some of these lovely goodies before Christmas...



I tried to focus a little more on stocking stuffers and gift wrapping then on holiday decor, figuring that this close to Christmas most people were done decorating or at least buying it.


The planning paid off and I had a good night - especially considering the economy, rescheduling and late date. My little bundles of tea-stained vintage (looking) candy canes were a hit, as were the little vintage (actual) match books.



These party pockets also sold well - great for putting gift cards, candy and small items in.

Perhaps my favorite new creation were my "Sweet Tweats."
These little glittered birds were a hit and I wish I had taken more pictures of them before the event... I will defiantly be adding them to my Birthday and Easter collections as well as Christmas!
But even more than having fun creating and selling for this event, was the chance to get to see so many friendly faces again! My time at FN was very sweet and special and even though I know I am right where I am supposed to be now, I still miss getting to visit with so many gals over there, and hug their necks. It was great to see and be seen, and to be tackled by Berit, who may win my Hugger of the Year Award!
Thanks for taking a little tour of my Market table with me. Tomorrow I am going to share some very FAB news from the Blog world so stay tuned...

  3. I LOVE your glittery birds.

    And thank you ever so much for your sweet package. It really made my day (and the card made me laugh.) Even the shredded paper was gorgeous! I am sorry it has taken me a few days to say thank you, been crazy. :-)

  4. Your christmas stocking stuffer goodies are absolutely darling. Just wanted to say thank you for the "Believe" Christmas banner. I received it yesterday and it has been hung on my mantle underneath my Santa collection. I love it! It was packaged so nicely and made my day to receive it. Thank you so much! Merry Christmas!
