Remnants of the Past was wow, wow, WOW!!!

Our booth. Had to get that Ocean Beach sign in there, a bit of the beach in the country
What a show! Remnants of the Past is an amazing show. From the people that came ot the show, our fellow dealers, the staff, the kind owners of this fabulous property, talking with Rachel Ashwell, all of it was so special. The day flew by, it was so busy with customers for hours and hours, the line coming in didn't stop. I've never seen anything like it before and we've been involved in a lot of shows.
Here's a peak at our booth. We were running out of merchandise after a couple of hours.
Pammy, with Up in the Attic, was our neighbor at Remnants, a jewelry dealer, was kind enough to let me share some of her photos.

Erika and Sandy from the Tattered House in Roseville had this amazing harvest table from West Virginia - just loved it. I shot a photo of it when they were setting up before it got covered with their fabulous merchandise. These girls rock it!

Deb Bob from Retreat Style had outstanding merchandise:
This is another amazing display - they came all the way from Washington:

A shot of the hills in the background - perfect weather!


Here's Carol, the fabulous pumpkin booth - her pumpkins are like nothing I've ever seen before - they have inspirational sayings on them, nothing to do with Halloween.




Rachel Ashwell and me - she's so genuine; I always enjoy seeing her.

Huge iron chandelier embellished with twigs and glass jars - beyond whimsical!

The barn was the perfect setting for all of the creative antiquers showing their wares

More clever displays . . .
We'll  be back on April 30th - don't miss this show, it's like none other.

Hi! Thanks so much for the mention of Retreat, but we wanted to let you know that the photo with the caption isn't of our booth! ;0) We were booth 12, outside next to the orchard, with black & white vignettes.

{I wanted to buy your Ocean Beach sign but couldn't leave our booth to get it!!!}

Oops! Thanks for clarifying. I loved your booth! I didn't get out of my area long enough to take too many photos, it was sooooo busy.

I sold all the other signs I had except the Ocean Beach one which means it's meant to be yours. Hah!
Let me know - we can pop it in the mail to you, no problem.
