~~My Booth at the NWA Boutique Show~~

Hey Guys! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I am recooperating from the NWA Boutique show...Whew! It was alot of fun, but I'm glad it's over. lol...I sold alot of items so I was very pleased. I was in such a tizzy that I almost forgot to take pictures. I'm glad I remembered...but I was in a rush so they are not the best. You might recognize the green desk and hutch I displayed some of my items on. We hauled it up along with a few more pieces of furniture. I could have used more display pieces...I didn't realize I had so much stuff! lol...Once alot of my items sold it didn't look so cluttered...we did end up moving the things on the floor.

My best sellers were these frames. I wish I had brought more!

I have listed a few items on Etsy and will be listing more over the next week. I have a huge house to decorate that I will be showing too. Busy!Busy!! Have a great Monday!

Wish I lived closer so I could have attended. Can't wait to see what you put on etsy. Love Love Love your stuff! You are one of my top blogs to read!

Oh my goodness gracious Kristen everything looks amazing. It's like having your own pretty store front to sell from. Your apple green hutch was perfect to display everything so beautifully. That must have taken some time to set up. I'm so happy it went well for you! I'm proud of you too!

Did I miss the tassled frames? I think I must have one of those for my living room. Gorgeous! I actually did a frame post tonight.
I love displaying frames and yours are at the top of my list.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Your display is so pretty. You booth had to have been one of the more popular ones. The hutch that you brought with you was just perfect for display. You deserve a rest after your hard work this weekend!

You need to open a shop! Kristen, what a beautiful display. If I were at that show, your booth would have drawn me immediately over. Your wreaths, well, you know I LOVE them and your frames are beautiful! Your work is truly amazing! =)

Kristen,

As usual, I am amazed at your creativity. You do such a wonderful job on all your lovely creations.

Last Christmas i purchased two Santa tassels from you and absolutely loved them. this year I have gingerbread theme going on and would love a few tassels this year as well.

I would have loved to have seen your booth. I am sure photos do not do it justice.

Blessings to you today.

In Grace,
Marie

Angie said...

What a great looking booth! Love everything in it!
