We had 3 hours to set up, and you can be sure that we used every MINUTE of that time! Thanks to my hubby and sister, everything went up smoothly. Of course, half-way through the fair we learned that our semi-short tent could actually go up much higher than the 6-foot clearance where we had it, but whatcha gonna do?! We know for next time! (Sorry about the many bruises my hubby suffered on his head... poor 6'2" guy, he kept forgetting to duck!)
Love my awesome banner. Course, I'll have to get some taller poles since the whole tent will be at least a foot higher next time.
And the inside shots, featuring all my varied design interests...
Chevron ottoman, starfish grapevine wreath, and infinity scarves!
All natural soy wax candles made inside of upcycled wine bottles! I spent many hours perfecting my process on those beauties, to cut, grind, sand, and stain the glass so they're gorgeous (AND won't slice open your hand when you go to light them)!
Also have a nice shot of my upcycled cork flooring wine glass charms at the bottom.
While I love rustic charm, I still require some BLING in my life, so starting at the left we have some very glam Swarovski Bead Accessories (try them as purse jewelry, zipper pulls, or key chains!). Middle top you'll find one of my wine bottle pendant lights with a vibrant purple cord, and below are some upcycled wine bottle business card holders. Far right: Scrabble tile wine charms (plenty of every letter, and at only $2 each, you can create your own unique set of charms!
Wine bottle pendant lights!!!
Upcycled vintage funnel pendant lights, as well as vintage gas station shades that have been rewired and ready to hang!
The day started off a little gloomy and rainy, but it turned around quickly. The sun came out, and I had the opportunity to chat with so many fantastic people!
Looking forward to my next outdoor craft fair, which will be on Saturday, June 14, in Wakefield, MA. To learn more about the Wakefield Festival by the Lake, check out their website here.
