Flea Market Under Glass - Saturday

My daughter, Emily, and I
worked together on Saturday
during the "FMUG".
The show was great!
I was selling as fast as
I could make them...
Here I'm writing up a sale.
So fun to have photos of me
working doing what I love.
Working with an out of state customer...
sizing a necklace to her specifications
for layering with another piece
of mine that she bought at
another time.
Fun!
I love that my friend, Mary
and her daughter, Hanna
surprised me by coming
to the show.

All photographs are courtesy of M Kahle Photography
and Mary's talented eye...
My customer, Susan, shown here with me
got up at 3 a.m. and drove in from
Green Bay, WI,
with her dh for the show.
Amazing customers!
This vintage bisque doll
turned angel necklace
found a very happy home.
A few of the pieces I still had left
towards the end of the sale...
My precious daughter...
what a great helper
she truly is.
Lots of fun pieces...
this key was a fun find
and
was actually redesigned
from this original creation to
something better
for a customer that bought a long necklace
from me in the morning,
went to lunch,
and came back for
another one to layer with.
:)
I so love these prop elements in this photo.
The mannequin was transformed by me
(see the tutorial for that here).

  5. Judy, Laurel, Janis and Vanessa-
    Thank you each one of you for your precious comments and the time you took out of your busy days to encourage me your friend. :)
    The long hours and hard work truly paid off, and now I can plan on just a few minor tweaks in my vendor space, and concentrate on creating lots of jewelry to sell at the next events.
