Adventures of Market

I am behind on my posting. Along with being really busy, blogger was down yesterday and I could not post. When we left home for our trip it was 96 degrees. I had on flip flops and capris. When we hit Laramie Wyoming it was 28 degrees. There was 4inches of snow on the ground and it was snowing, blowing and sleeting so hard you could hardly see. The roads were slick and the hills steep. We drove through about 60 miles of that crap. But we made it and it is gorgeous here.

Thursday morning we started the set up. First the walls had to be made.

I am using hard walls instead of pipe and drape. The paneling is called Coastal Cedar and I love it!

Here are a few shots of the booth as it went together. I have not had a chance to take photos around the show yet.

There are twinkle lights woven through the floral swags which look really cute when they are lit.

After set up, we headed out to the Great Salt Lake. It is absolutely gorgeous. We got in waded and Eric floated. But let me tell you. They warn you about the noseums when you get there, but that in no way prepares you. I have never, seen so many in my life. They literally swarm you. I had little red bug bites all over my forehead. It was crazy.

So far Market has been great. Very busy, the day flew by yesterday. So, that is all for now.



  1. Oh--I remember those nasty noseeums from my Florida days. Bug spray didn't seem to help. Good luck at market, enjoyed your pictures.

  2. Wowzer! Booth looks FANTASTIC! So glad that you posted. Hope you are enjoying your time there. So excited for you! Have a safe return.

  3. Your booth looks wonderful and inviting! I'd love to see it in person....someday if I ever get to a market! Best of luck with your sales!!!!

  4. Thank for sharing! Love your booth, don't love bug-bites!

  5. Wow, your booth looks awesome.

    Had to google noseeums to see what they are! Yikes!

  6. I am horribly allergic to noseeum bites. So glad you shared this as one day we hope to visit there and I do not need the bug bites. I'll have my husband leave me at some quilt shop in the area and he can go see the Salt flats. Or I could stay in the car and stitch. LOL! Market looks like a lot of work but also a great deal of fun and inspiration!
