A Paris Street Market: June 2015

Where does the time go? We haven't recapped the June show!!

The day started off a bit cloudy and overcast. As we were unpacking, it was actually a comfortable temperature. We had a better system for the "unload" portion this year, so it all seemed to go smoother. We were set up sooner than last year and we actually had time to take a few more pictures of the booth before shoppers came and picked their items.

We had a big white section this year. Karli had picked up this old desk earlier in the year and it served as a focal point for one section. The white and gray chairs above were the very first items to be sold (at 7:30 am---before the show even opened). We always take bets on what will go first. Neither of us guessed that one. We were happy to see them go to someone who loved them!

Furniture Booth Display

Along the back we placed a few more primitive and industrial item as well as the wine lamp that Dwight built. So many people stopped by to check it out.

The other side of the booth was filled with black furniture and some of our colorful items. This side also featured some of the kitchen items we'd been gathering.

 We took our customary selfie before the crowds got too big. It was still cloudy until about 9:00 am.

We had a steady crowd from about 8:30 until 11:00. Around 11:00 it got pretty warm, but there were dark clouds building above. Around 1:00 the rain came. So we pulled everything we could under the tent. At that point the crowds really started to dwindle.

The sun came back out at 1:30, but the crowds didn't really follow suit.

We had so much fun seeing all our customers (many repeats from last year who remembered us) and meeting new fans. While the June show wasn't as successful as last year's August show, we still had a great time!

See you again in September!!
