Recap of The Backwood's Marketplace

Gypsy Farm Girl + Rooster Tails = The Gypsy Rooster! 

Meet our funky Gypsy Rooster mascot, created from a late night sewing spree and lots of fabric scraps! He welcomed guest at one entrance into our booth at the recent Backwood's Marketplace. 
The weather was absolutely gorgeous for this show! We were able to set up early and didn't have to worry about the wind or rain disrupting our plans and for that we are thankful.

This show, we added live plants and some scrap art. I collected the seeds (bundt pans and door knobs), planted the ideas with Jeff, and he fertilized (welded) them and all of a sudden these fun flowers sprung up the day before market! I love how they turned out and they got lots of comments, although some thought it was a waste of a good bundt pan and others said "who would have thought of that?" Ummm, me! :)
vintage market
I had this bike, that we named the flower peddler and promised a video of me riding it Sunday morning, before the market opened. 

Here's one of the video's of me riding down the dirt road at market! (There's also a live video available on facebook of us walking through our booth and a final bike ride, before it went off to its new home.) Apparently, everyone was worried about me crashing, but I didn't! :)

Since the market, I have been adding lots of new inventory to my shop, so if you couldn't make it out to the market, I can ship to you!

Here's a partial view inside my tent.

The gazebo was part of the property and we were ask to include it within our layout and include some decor around it for picture taking. 
The market coincided with the history gathering and I had some of my vintage church paintings available.

Angea's Farmhouse sign. I had fun creating these truck and camper tin signs / wall hangings from scrap tin. I love my cutting tool that I found to cut the metal. (The truck sold. but the glampers are available.)

Miss Gussie - she loves going to markets and letting everyone peek inside her. She loves all their sweet comments and the super excited squeals from a few!
Looking out from the camper door.

 Almost all of the tin bird flew away to new homes!
Here's a view of all our space! We kind of had a lot of stuff, between the two of us!

 A great big THANK YOU to everyone who came junkin' with us! We appreciate everybody who stopped by our booth to shop and visit. We love getting to see all of you! Also, thank you to the Blackstone Family for letting us be apart of this market. If you were unable to attend, but see something you like or something you wished you had got while you were there, please check in my shop as I am adding new inventory or send me a message. (clothing hasn't been added yet, but hopefully this week I can get it photographed and listed.)
Not all who wander are lost... happy trails till our paths cross again.
