SHoW Booth Pics - Washington Street Spring Market, Naperville, IL

Last Saturday
~* ChiPPy-SHaBBy Booth *~
Washington Street Spring Show
Naperville - Illinois


 Sooooo appreciative of ALL my regular "shabby-shoppers"
 who sought me out "FIRST" in a MAZE of disconnected rooms!!!

So much work goes on behind the scenes!!!
My day started with a 5am Load-In,
which was intense!!!  - Dealing with Stairs in my area & then loading a cart
to pull down a LONG Hallway to my booth space...  What a work-out!!!
I had a lovely spot for my booth ~ but after the first few hours - in this area,
unfortunately the foot traffic was slim!  Could it have been the fab weather outside???
Were people not finding this room in the building???  
Before I knew it - it was 6 hours later since the doors opened, -  time to Pack-It-Up!!!
ANOTHER Work Out!!!  ~ Then the 2-1/2 hour drive home...
A Big Thank YOU to all of you who SHoPPed My SHaBBies!*!*!

Not All My ViNtaGe Pieces are "CHiPPy"...


Thinking  S*P*R*I*N*G!*!*!
~As yet ANOTHER ROUND of S*N*O*W is Falling!*!*!
Ah - Wisconsin...

IN EARLY SPRING,
I LoVe bringing home flats of flowers and displaying them
on carts before they get potted or placed in the ground...
This little beauty Sold a couple years ago in my 
ChiPPy-SHaBBy booth at Cedarburg, Wisconsin's Maxwell Street Flea Market...


NOT CHiPPy???
Although about 95% of ViNtaGe Finds I sell
 have some degree of a NATURAL time-worn patina, 
If an item has really good form - I don't mind if it has been more recently painted. 
 ~ Such is the case with the Folding Cart Pictured Above...
Fresh... Clean... Functional... Draws the eye...
