Last weekend All That Jazz joined other vendors from our shop, Abundance Vintage, in a space at a local event called The Country Chicks. They were having their annual Fall Harvest event and we were invited to join in the fun! This is Jazz's section in our shops 12 by 12 space. We were the first in so got to pick our placement in our spot!
Overall we did sell some things and it was worth the effort but we didn't sell as much as I thought we would have. I think as you look at the pictures to follow, you will get an idea why. Our stuff tends to be more French Country/Shabby Chic and this show is known for a more Primitive style. I think people that shop here are sort of still stuck in that decorating mode. Lots of black and red. I tend to like lighter colors.
I did sell this bookcase. I don't think I showed you. It was a Goodwill find. It started out with your usual ugly brown stain and had a hole in the back, but it had dainty lines and cute feet! It was a lot of work though. I don't think I'll be doing another bookcase soon. They have too many sides! I used a lot of my Chalk Paint on it too. Then I added clear and dark wax. I loved the way the dark wax made it look grungy!
This stuff all belongs to the Country Chicks, the hostesses. She said she uses a lot of spray paint!
I loved this piece, it didn't sell but I'm sure it will soon.
This space was a favorite, it was styled really neat and when we stopped by 2 days later it had sold a lot of things. I also wondered if we didn't sell so much because we were at the end of the line in the barn, not outside in the tents where people shopped first. However, since it rained on Saturday I was thankful for the barn.
I thought this was clever!
Cheerful sitting area.
All in all it was a good weekend. It took a lot of work to get ready for it but since I had a lot of merchandise left over I don't have to worry so much about keeping the booth stocked this month. I have to admit, it's more fun to be a shopper than a vendor, all the fun and none of the hassle!
Hope you're having a great week!
