I had to pop in just for a moment on this busy, busy morning…
As you know, last week I participated in “The Barn” Vintage Market hosted by Ruffles & Rust in Snohomish, Washington. It was my first-ever market in Washington, and only the fourth one I’ve ever participated in! It was by far the busiest, and what fun!
The first 90 minutes of the show were crazy. I think they said about 800 people came through, and I think at least 650 of them were in that first hour and half!
I came home with less than half of the stuff I went with. I basically sold out of all my “smalls,” and even though I have several big pieces left, I’m OK with that—just means I’ll have some things to list on Craigslist!
Here’s a peek of what I brought!
The “No 7” breadboard, the covered basket, the little aqua chalkboard, the French box, the black secretary…all sold. I brought home the little black rocking chair; I think it needs to be a brighter color. But then…the little aqua table was PLENTY bright, and I brought it home too, although it was oohed and aahed over by a ton of people!
I took one of my Farmhouse tables, and although it didn’t sell, I had inquiries for two custom tables. The white benches on either side sold, plus I think everything on the table except the long green bench in the back! I sold the little red compass nightstand and the checkerboard coffee table. I did not sell the pink dresser on the left, but I was never that crazy about it. It’s probably due for a re-re-do.
The tall shelf on the right is one I built, and it sold right away! I think I had it priced too low I sold the little aqua organizer, but not much else from this corner. Go figure!
Here’s a closer look at the little rocking chair…this one sold fast. It had the cutest little drawer under the seat!
This is a lousy picture of a little table and two chairs that I took, but I wish I had had several of them! On the right side is a little gray storage bench that also went quickly.
I was able to spread out “across the aisle,” and that was a lifesaver because I had SO MUCH STUFF! The little aqua upholstered bench went to someone who was just going to re-upholster it! The base was originally part of an Ethan Allen coffee table. I removed the top—it was long and awkward—and cut a new top out of OSB to make a bench out of it.
I took another one of my French Chocolate coffee tables, but it didn’t sell. Peeking out underneath is the cutest “First Aid” box I finished, inspired by this one from Home Road (I’ll have to see if I can find a better picture of it later). I was SO sad to see it go!
Here you can see a peek of a little table made from a vintage treadle sewing machine base. I love the look of the graphic on top! I added a shelf beneath after seeing this one from Full Circle Creations.
I really had a great time doing this sale, and it was made possible by wonderful help from a dear friend, a sister, a daughter, and a son. THANK YOU to them all.
Now this morning I need to get off the computer and ready to take my family ON VACATION! I’m super excited to take a BREAK from the garage and just concentrate on my husband and kids for a few days.
See you next week!
