I have secured an Outdoor Booth Space at this UpComing August 9th, 2020 Flea Event.
Honestly, we still have some strong concerns about being Out & About in a crowd, while still needing to take precautions from potentially contracting the COVID VIRUS.  
 
~*I ask that you PLEASE Wear a Mask in-my-booth* ~
and try your best to social distance...

SeLLing ChiPPy-SHaBBy ViNtaGe Finds in "2020"???


IS IT POSSIBLE TO 
Navigate our way "Out & About at the Flea Markets SAFELY"
during this "2020" COVID-19 Pandemic???

~*Elbow-To-Elbow People ShoPPing*~
This pic was taken last year at a local flea, here in Wisconsin.  If you're a Flea Market Shopper, and the weather is good, THIS IS WHAT AN AVERAGE DAY AT THE FLEA LOOKS LIKE!!! 

What About the 6' Rule??? ~ For COVID Safety???
 ~ I really doubt it could be adhered to at this type of market!

I can't envision EVERYONE Wearing a Mask Either!!!
~Especially if it were hot outside...  Hydrating with bottled water & *EATING* - requires having to touch your mask!




~* SeLLing Outdoors Under a Tent *~
I think I miss this the most!  Outdoor Displays are So InViting!!!

Most Tents displayed with merchandise, barely have room to easily walk around in..  How could I police the number of people allowed in my booth? ~ Especially if I'm the only one selling?

Besides the Safety Measures of Mask & Social Distancing,
 -AS A FLEA MARKET SELLER- 
Should I Wear Gloves??? ~ Everyone Touches Everything!!!
Handing Money & writing up tickets would be very difficult.
What about Credit Card Purchases & touching the Device???

Come End-Of-Day PackUp
Unsold Merchandise & Props ~ Will I be bringing the virus home with me???
I CAN'T WIPE DOWN EVERYTHING!*!*! 




As Much as I want to get back to selling at Specialty Shows & Flea Markets, I think I've answered my own questions...

Selling is stressful enough...
Wearing a Mask, Gloves, & Social Distancing would be taking away my Joy while selling to you!  I want to be safe, & I want my customers to be safe, I want to give you a hug!!!  ALL the info out there Todate - IS MOST UNCERTAIN & EVEN QUESTIONABLE...

RIGHT NOW ~ MY DECISION IS TO ~*STAY HOME*~
No Flea Markets "FOR ME" ~ TILL FURTHER NOTICE
My *Frog-Husband* & I are STAYING HOME!

I have a Fab FRESH ChiPPy-SHaBBy STaSH Ready to Sell for this Season!!!
I'm currently *Re-Thinking* how I might move my merchandise safely.
I'll keep you posted!!!

STAY SAFE OUT THERE!*!*!

Easter Table Centerpiece with ChiPPy-WHiTE Clay Pots & more...




 "Cheerful Delights" at the Grocery Store - Yesterday!*!*!
~*Precious Viola Plants in Dirt*~

Sooooo thrilled to be greeted at the grocery store entrance yesterday, by these pretty, uplifting - 
~*Fresh & Alive Flowering Viola Plants*~
WORKING WITH WHAT I HAVE ~  popped these dirt encased beauties in some chippy-white clay pots I had stacked in the garage...   NEXT - found just the right container with "hints-of-rust" to display them in as a table centerpiece.  The addition of a ViNtaGe Mache Easter Bunny was like "jewelry on the dress"...  Hope this brings a smile to your face as much as it does mine! 


Hope you're "lucky-enough" to find a Chocolate Bunny
 in your Easter Basket THIS YEAR!!!  
Remembering the days of our little independently-owned Candy Store, inside the Stage Couch Inn Bed & Breakfast,  Cedarburg -Wisconsin...
BEERNTSEN'S CANDY - No longer in business AT THIS LOCATION.
