First Day of Fall // Upcoming Crafts Fair

It is the first day of fall! How crazy is that? It seems like summer was ripped from our grasps at the very end. It was very sad, but I’ve brushed myself off and facing this fall season with open arms! Fall is probably one of my favorite seasons, as I’ve mentioned many times before. I’m so excited for what is to come for the remainder of the year!

For those in the Danbury, CT area should come and see me Sunday, October 2nd! I am taking part in a craft fair for the grand opening of a new shop in Brookfield, CT called ‘Somewhere in Time’. It is *the* cutest shop, I love it! If you are a big Etsy fan, or just someone who loves handmade, then this place is for you. You’ll find such an array of goods from jewelry, to soaps, to garden items, to items for your favorite pooch!

I would absolutely love it if you came down to say hello and see what this great shop has to offer. It’ll be a great time and would be a fantastic way to kick off the fall season! In the mean time, check out their Facebook fanpage and you can see some of the great local artisans who are taking part in this craft fair and also see more of what this shop has to offer.

Our first experience at the Elephant’s Trunk Flea Market

Our first day at the flea market was a success! We had a great time and it was a lot of fun. It was definitely a learning experience and we look forward to doing it again. We hope you join us!

6am fog...I took some photos of our tables before the flea market started. It was a very very early morning for us. We got to the field at 5am and there such a heavy fog it was crazy. You can see it a bit in the background if the first shot. Luckily it lifted by 6:30am when people started rolling in.

treasure chest of earringsI was trying to go for a shabby chic look to my table. I know it needs a lot of work, but it was my first time and I’m still gathering everything I need. I promise it will be better next time!!

Here are a few more close up shots of my table. I got the magnet board from a wonderful vendor at the Elephants Trunk who finds create vintage items and repurposes them. I’ve purchased items from her before, and I just love her style. She used a vintage frame and created a wonderful chalk board that is perfect for my magnets. :)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here’s a few more treasures to look at it. I tried getting as many close-ups as I could but I wanted to be able to show everything. Let me know what you think!!

My hubby!And not to be left out, Bil also had a table! He was selling some original Nintendo games and Nintendo Systems as well that he replaced the 72-pin connectors in so they work like new! He blew through his collection of games and all the systems while we were there, so that was fantastic. He made for great company and I’m really glad he wanted to sell with me. His batch of Nintendo items

 

 

 

 

 

We had a really great time though and we did better than we had hoped to do. We’re thinking of doing it once or twice a month to give us time to stock up inventory in between. So we’ll be sure to let you all know when we’ll be doing it again! Thank you to those who stopped by, it was great seeing you all!

Finally Attaining One of My Goals…

Elephants Trunk Flea MarketI am so excited! As many of you know my goal this summer was to start selling at craft fairs/flea markets, and I’m finally going to hit that goal. This Sunday, Bil and I are going to be selling at the Elephant’s Trunk Flea Market in New Milford, CT. For those who have never been{or heard of} this flea market, its one of the largest outdoor flea markets in the area. It’s roughly 60% antiques and then a mix of new, handmade, tag sale items, plants, flowers, food, and whatever else you can think of.

Bil and I go every Sunday to the ET Flea to stroll around and look at all the really cool antiques, dreaming about one day owning a rustic home which we can fill with great vintage finds. Someday that will happen! Either way though, it’s a really nice way to spend a Sunday morning.

So if you’re in the area this coming Sunday, come down and see us! The flea market runs from 7am til 2pm and its $2 per person with free parking. Its located on Rt 7 in New Milford, its hard to miss it! Its going to be a beautiful day on Sunday, so be sure to stop by! I’ll be sure to post on Twitter and Facebook as to our exact location on the grounds for those who want to stop by and say hello. :)

xo, Sarah

P.S. I will also love you forever if you bring me coffee. Possibly a venti nonfat iced caramel macchiato with two splenda? Maybe? ;)
