It's taking me this long to find a moment to recap one of my most favorite weekends of the year.
It's all seems like a blur since the Big Show, but it was probably because I have been running like a "mad woman" every since. Not to mention the weeks before the show as well.
You see, I have been doing Serena's amazing show since there were just a wee handful of us. I think 6 of us at the "little grange" when this all started.
And now? 200 plus amazing vendors with treasures that I vowed I would not shop for.
* I only bought 1 item. A killer small rodo-bin from one amazing dealer at the end of the second day. (ROOST in Spokane... omg. Check out that store when you are in Spokane!)
This show is me and more than just displays and selling and such.
It's about seeing friends and shoppers that I only get to see at the show. Hugs and laughter (and my friend Julie who takes the most amazing photos, captures me at my "most craziness" as we work through this weekend)
It's about madness and oh so much fun.
And I thought we might "miss it this year" due to one special redhead feeling the need to graduate "oh so close to the FC weekend date".
And knowing that her bestie, "Hannah #2" as she has been so named by Heather would have to make the "hard choice" of finishing out her senior year and "missing the big show".
And wanting her to know "some friends were thinking about you"
But this show has been more than just creating and selling.
It's about friendships.
And having my "Minnesota girls" making the trek to be here and helping and displaying for hours on end.
So by the end of Sunday. Crazy pooped out, it looked like a tornado had come through our booth. A crazy almost empty 24' Uhaul.
But super happy and content, not about selling. But seeing everyone and reminding me why we do this .
Year after year.
