|This vignette captured a lot of attention.|
Elaine and I did our first show with the fabulous ladies of Petticoats on the Prairie (the Rodeo Queens) in Ballinger, Texas, this past weekend. We had a fun show where we sold some fun things and met a lot of fantastic shoppers and amazing vendors and enjoyed doing the show in a one of a kind venue, a wool and mohair warehouse, restored by the Bickel family of Ballinger.
Petticoats on the Prairie This building was a must see and will make a great events venue if the family decides to use it for that. It's three stories (we were in the basement by the freight elevator which proved very handy). The Bickel family were so gracious, helpful and welcoming, we really appreciate all of their hard work in getting the warehouse ready for the show.
We concentrated on a Garden Party theme and took a lot of wrought iron, patio items and plants to enhance that theme.
|We still have this awesome glider although, we had a lot of interest in it. The cute picnic bucket and tool chest planter found new homes.|
|As you looked into our booth, this was the scene on the left side.|
|Here's a close-up of the above scene. We sold a lot of the small concrete doves.|
They built this wall and then created this breath-taking display. Please check out their page to see more of their space.
We had a great time as I said, and after getting a good night's sleep in my own bed, I can look back and enjoy all the fun times and more importantly the wonderful people we met (plus all the great friends we'd already made who we got to see again).
