A little soggy. Bone tired. But all it all, none the worse for wear. Lucketts 2013 is behind me.
Can I hear a hallelujah?
We set up on Friday, and once again I felt inadequate. I tried to get more stuff ready for my booth, but between everything that's been going on for me the last month, I didn't have it as full as I would have liked.
Especially when I looked at my neighbor's booths: To the one side I had Susan from Uniquely Yours ... Or Mine, who is one productive and talented lady. Plus this year I was sharing my double space with Erin from Picked and Painted--who also turned out to be a furniture-painting fiend. They both had tons of cool stuff.
However, I've got to say, when I looked around at other booths I thought mine was okay. I just happened to be surrounded by over-achievers! :-)
And by Sunday night I was glad that I didn't have much to pack up and move back. Especially since I didn't have a contingency plan on where to put it! It was nice to look into my living room and actually see it instead of a stack of furniture.
It rained Friday night, and threatened to rain all day Saturday. Finally in the afternoon the skies let loose and we all had a mad dash of bringing in and covering our furniture.
Thank goodness all my furniture was waxed or finished with wipe-on poly though! I felt sorry for all the people who had upholstered pieces sitting out.
Sunday dawned foggy, but no real rain thankfully.
I had a chance to shop around a bit, and came home with some goodies which I'll show you once I get them set up. I loved looking at everyone's booths to see how they were merchandised. There are a lot of talented people out there! Unfortunately I didn't get a chance to take photos.
Sales weren't great because of the weather, but I'm happy with how it turned out for me. All the work was worth it.
But you know what I'm really happy about?
Now I can get to all of the projects around my house I've been needing to do.
And the next big event for Mr. P's Emporium is moving into our bigger space at the Homestore. I'll show you photos once everything gets settled!
