Okay, so I am always reading about these events from the West Coast for these beautiful 2-3 day events. They are like a flea market, but everything is shabby, and pink, and pretty, and vintage, and fabulous, and gorgeous!!! They sound like so much fun!!! I always want to attend one, but can't obviously afford to leave work and my family for several days and travel and get a hotel... soooooo...
I would love to do something like that out here. A Shabby Show if you will!! There are several of you lovely, and talented ladies from CT, NY, Mass, and RI (Hi Elyse!!) I was thinking that maybe we could all get together and rent a space maybe set something up like a craft show/flea market. I'm thinking lots of pretty tables and displays. Before Christmas would be a great time to do it!!
Does anyone else think this is a good idea?? Is it feasible?? Do we have enough interested people out here in New England/New York region?? Where is a good place to have it?? I'm thinking somewhere in CT is right in the middle of NY, RI, and Mass. Even a one day event would be so much fun!! Okay, so it might be too late to plan one for this autumn, let's get together and plan one for either the Spring (pre-Easter would be a pretty time of year to have a shabby event) or Autumn of 2010!!!
This is what I'm thinking:
♥ Handmade items
♥ Fabrics and Trims
♥ Pretty Handmade Jewelry
♥ Altered Books
♥ Scrapbook Supplies
♥ Craft Supplies
♥ Shabby Finds (flea market re~do's)
♥Tags and Pretty Paper Items
♥ Painted Goodies
♥ Anything Pretty, Shabby, Pink, etc...
♥ Could be Vintage or New
