Success at Our First Show!!!

Whew!!!, we made it..Our first annual Snohomish Antique and Art Faire was a hit...It was more work than I imagined, but it turned out sooooo good. The weather was the best ever, can you believe it? The majority of the vendors were more than happy and want to come back next year. There were a few that didn't do as well as they were hoping, but still enjoyed themselves and thought for the first year, it went well. We know what we need to work on for next year and will have more time to plan and advertise. We are hoping for at least 100 vendors next year, enough to fill up the whole street! And thank you all who attended and blogged and called about the show. We appreciate all our awesome local customers and friends who help make an event like this a success. Maybe next year we can get some of you to help pass out flyers, etc. A special thanks to Timi..she showed up VERY EARLY and helped us load in the vendors and pass out the yummy scones that my friend Brigit made for the vendors. I told Brigit that she needs to have a booth next year to sell them. She got up at 4:am to bake them... Kimberly from Faded Elegance and her husband Anthony were non-stop along with Debbie from the city and Haley from.... Haley and Company. Her "boys" helped us pick up all those damn road signs afterwards and stored them in her back room. Thanks again, everyone. (Oops, forgot my husband/laborer, Vern.)
The next big event will be Farm Chicks, June 6th and 7th. Mary and I, along the husbands will hit the road on June 4th.. We hope to see you there.
After that, I'm not going to do anything but bask in the glory of havng just the store to concentrate on...until HOT BLOGUST NITE!! Saturday August 8th. I have had some really good response to this little party. I will keep you up to date with activities, door prizes, demo's and how to's from some creative types....wine, food, fun, shopping.... what could be better?
Here' to a wonderful summer, we deserve it!
Be Good,
Annie

It was a great show! It's just what Snohomish needed! I can't wait to do it again next year. Hell I would be happy with doing it once a month! ;-)
My pleasure to help, it was so much fun getting to meet everyone.
Looking forward to Farm Chicks.
I finally got my blog badge done and posted with Camp Whimsy.
YEAH ANNIE!!!! Great job on the show organization.
