Expo Antique Show

We've had a very busy week.
This weekend we were one of over 1,200 vendors
at the Palmer Wirfs Antique Show 
at the Portland Expo.
It was our first time there as a vendor.
We have friends who have been doing the show for years
and have been encouraging us to sell at the show.
We had so much fun!
We sold lots . . .
met some great people . . .
received an invitation to be a vendor at Ruffles & Rust
and another local flea market.

Here are a few pics The Captain took of our booth.
We were so busy with customers, 
I never really had time to set it up the way I wanted, 
and we sold lots of things
before we could get them in their places.
I decided to add pops of pink throughout the booth
and had made some tissue pom pom flowers
(tutorial here) to hang from the tent.
By the end of the last day . . . 
I only had 3 of them hung.
trailer trash turned to cash

The Captain did a great job setting up a lot of the
vignettes as I was busy talking with customers

I also had the opportunity to be interviewed
by The Oregonian newspaper (article here
who took some photos of our space
and included this one 
on the The Oregonian website here.

We had so much fun.
We plan to be a vendor again next year.
Thanks to all who stopped and shopped at our booth. 
I enjoyed meeting you all.

P.S. I will be adding new items to my etsy shop today, 
and to celebrate 200 sales and thank you for shopping,
you can now receive 20% off for 2 days,
ends @ midnight July 13.


  1. Congrats on the successful show! I thought about going to the Expo, but figured it was just tempting fate with our budget! :) So, are you going to take up the offer for Ruffles and Rust? I've never been, but have family in Snohomish, and think a visit is in order!

  2. Congratulation on the success of the show Julie and may I say you looked really great in the photo!
    I could just feel the excitement from the photos and I wish I could have been there to enjoy it in person...
