Yippee for the Flea!

The Flea market this past weekend was a HUGE success. Not only was it profitable, but it was loads of fun!! It was a SUPER hot Southern California Sunday too, which made for even more of an adventure :)
The way it works is, you can start setting up your booth as early as 4:15am (ha ha. NO). You must be in your booth setting up by 6:15am, or you lose your space all together. The flea market actually opens to the public at 7:30am (but there are all kinds of early birds and vendors wandering around and getting in the way). We got to our booth around 5:45am, and most of the vendors were already half-way set up, if not all the way done. Needless to say, it was GO time! We got our booth set up, we moved our U-haul to the parking area, and we let the fun begin!!! Sadly we were too busy to get many pictures, but here are a few so you can get the idea :) (click on the pics to zoom in and see all of our awesome goods).











And as previously mentioned, if you click to zoom on these next two pics, you will see signs that have my favorite word on them "SOLD."



And these 3 cuties came to visit us and had a little picnic in the shade.
Lisa, Kristin, and I made lots of sales, met tons of nice people, had a bunch of friends and family come to visit us, and we had a wonderful time!!!! We definitely want to do this again!!!

  8. Love your booth. It's nice to see how this is done "clear across the country", lol. We've sold at the Nashville Flea Market and didn't get in as early as you did. Stressful to say the least. Congrats on a great market!

  9. Your booth looks GREAT! So glad it was successful for you (though I'm not surprised since you had so much cute stuff ;) And hopefully you got some much needed rest after being out there so early!
