the queen bee market, baby!

ohmyword, you guys!  i had such a great time at the queen bee market this weekend!  the booths were amazing, the vendors were so sweet, it was so fun meeting so many of the customers, and of course jess and mique were super stars for organizing it all!

here’s some pics of my booth.  i went back to my old booth designs and used vintage luggage and accessories as a contrast to my bright and punchy products, and i am so happy with how it turned out!

we had 4 hours to set up.  it took me 3 hours and 51 minutes!  it never takes me that long, but it was really fun adding little details to my space.  and besides, the best booth gets a free booth next market, so i’m hoping all that time pays off!

this is a shot of my space just after my initial base set up. i’m so thankful to ruby rose for lending me all the vintage frames!

and here it is all filled up!

do you see my new pillows?!  so excited to list what’s left today!

i loved having this fun garland i made with ruffle scraps and yarn.  it doesn’t get much easier – just take a strip of fabric and tie a single knot, then repeat over and over and over!

i’ll be featuring many of the amazing booths tomorrow, so you can virtually visit the queen bee market.  if you came and visited this weekend, thank you!  and for those of you that couldn’t make it, sorry, but you seriously missed out!

    Linds- QBM wouldn’t be what it is without you. We are so lucky to have you. My only regret is falling asleep mid sentence on Friday night. And that we didn’t get to play more. Miss you already. And love you. xoxo

    I Went to QBM on Friday night and I loved it. I chatted with you at the last QBM and I didn’t get a chance to this time. I bought your brown and cream bag with the turquoise and brown posies and I love it. I have gotten so many compliments on it already. I hope you have some ipad cases left My kids got me the new white ipad 2 for Mother’s Day now I need something cute to put it in.
