A Successful Market Day

Kate had her first show and what a success it was.
Her new business, Rustic Market, is off and running with many customers 
inquiring if she had a shop.
This magnificent headboard did not sell, but I think most people couldn't 
see it's potential as anything other than a headboard.
I would use it as a piece of art on a wall, set it on a mantel, or put vintage 
hooks on it and use it in an entry way for hanging coats.
Check out this unique vintage bike that she turned into a table/shelf.  It was a little hard to display to it's best since it needs to be attached to a wall to make it stable.  But regardless, it was noticed by many for it's uniqueness and found a loving home.
Her rusty letters practically flew out the door.
This piece of furniture came home with us.  Although it looks like it has many drawers, it actually is a dresser with only 4 drawers.  I think it would look great in a boy's bedroom, an entry way or fantastic in an office with a black printer on top of it.  Plus, it would allow great space for storage.
This altar table we found on The Longest Yard Sale.  It is such a beautiful piece.  It was missing a drawer (which we didn't notice until we got it home), so we added a piece of decorative wood carving where the drawer should be to hide the hole.
All in all, it was a very positive and fun day.  Exhausting, but fun.

I wish I could have gone. Was the green thingies a long bench. We have a Real Deals store and they can't keep Rhodes letters in stock. Love the bike.

I love it! Beautiful room. Blue paint looks restful. My bedroom furniture is very much like yours, but have had it for years.

I can't believe the headboard didn't sell Cindy, because that is the first piece I would have grabbed. If shipping wasn't so much I would love it! Your daughter is such a doll and I'm so happy she did well on her first sale. Love that she is into vintage and rustic too. Tell Kate hi from me :)

Congratulations to your talented daughter on a successful sale. I can see that she's got a lot of imagination and creativity in the way the interesting items are displayed. All the best for future market events.

SO SO happy for her! She looks so happy and pleased in that pretty pic of her.

Write me a note and let me know what she's wanting for that neat headboard thingie.
