Well, we survived another week at the Round Top Antiques Week where we are set up at LaBahia. People came out like ants from an ant bed on the first weekend and the booth changed every day as we sold furniture and all kinds of pretties. We were so busy the first weekend that I was not able to get pics of some of our favorite pieces. We had a great old postal unit that sat on a great old farm table...I will see if our neighbor Annette got pictures of that...anywho....we had a great, exhausting, fun filled week!!! Here are a few photos of the booth...
You will notice a nice, lovely rope tied around the huge double mirror armoire . A couple of days we had some unbelievable wind. This particular piece fell forward and a customer and I was able to catch it as it came toward us..While we were doing this Marci was racing toward the stacks of doors leaning up against our trailer that were going down fast. Unfortunately, a lovely little parlor table did not make it, but we saved all the pieces of the table for some fun re-purposing!
I love it when customers share what they are going to do with a purchase. You can see the pretty upholstered bed in the background..... A lady that has a photography studio bought it to use in her studio in Houston. She actually squatted down and took a picture of it to see how it would photograph. How cool is that...she said she does a lot of triplets and multiples baby pictures....can't you just see them all piled up on the bed???? Love that!!!
On Wednesday we decided to try something for the first time. Usually the middle of the week gets a little more slow so we decided to try a wine and cheese party on Wednesday afternoon. It was a great success. Customers were pleasantly surprised and stayed around to shop some more. We had a great time!!!
