Craven Farm Antique "Tailgate" Sale, Snohomish, WA - June 2008

The Craven Farm Antique Tailgate Sale was hot, hot, hot--literally!  Great stuff and happy customers. Unfortunately, I forgot the flash card for my camera . . . this shows early setup from Craven's website.  Thanks so much to all the loyal customers who visit us despite the pressures we must endure in this economy--keep the faith!!

I’ve shopped this market for years but just now decided to give it a try for selling my merchandise.  It was charming and full of great vendors—some of whom I haven’t seen in years.  Despite some clear signs of recession in terms of what customers were buying, it was a successful show.  Not much furniture shopping going on, so we had to repack a bunch of it.  I decided to do this rather last-minute, so my booth was in more disarray than usual.  But I think customers had fun “plowing through it.”

Not accustomed to one-day shows, I didn’t get out much to take other photos of my friends from Portland who showed up.  So good to see you!

Whew!  It seemed to be over in the blink-of-an-eye.  One vendor looked at all my stuff and said "Didn't anybody tell you this is an 8-hour show?"  Oh well, excess is best!!!

Show postscript:  Hmm . . .

gonna have to rethink that "excess is best" statement.  Threw my back out of whack on the packing to come home.  Can't seem to accept that I'm not a proverbial "spring chicken" anymore :-)
