**ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! Booth** ~ Last Weekend, DuPage Expo Antique Show...

This past weekend I SOLD my "ChiPPy!-SHaBBy!" ViNtage Finds at the DuPage Expo Antique Show in St. Charles, Illinois...  Even with mountains of snow ~ and I mean MOUNTAINS of Snow in the parking lot, Saturday's Show had a good crowd waiting - as the doors opened at 11 a.m.  Unfortunately, Sunday's attendance and sales were quite the opposite...

ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! Booth with a "hint of Spring" ~ just minutes before the doors opened...



I arrived for set-up on Friday afternoon...  I always love being able to set up the day before...  Doing ALL this by myself is quite physical...   With all the hard work behind me, come selling day, I can then enjoy my displays, selling, and talking to my customers...




The ViNtaGe Tattered & Worn Ballet Pointe Shoes SOLD OUT in the First Five Minutes of the Show!*!*!




 I just loved how my center display turned out...  The perfectly chippy TRUNK & BIRDCAGE went to Texas!!!



This ViNtaGe 1940's Calendar had such FaB Bird Graphics!!!  It looked sooooo Anthro...  That too, went to a good home...



This chippy vintage desk was 2-die-4!!!  That too, flew out of the booth right away...  I loved it's original drawer hardware with barbola flower garland surround...




Say Hellooooo to these "SHaBBy-SHoPPinG Bloggers"!*!*!
Do check out their blogs!!!

After Saturday's Show, a group of us went to a Thai Restaurant to Celebrate JUDY'S Birthday (Tapestries of Nature Blog)!!!  Saturday was Judy's actual BiRthday!*!*!



 It was such a pleasant get together!!!  During shows it's so hard to talk with other dealers ~ so this gathering made for "fun chit-chat"!!!



          Starting at the left:  Janice, Denise, Judy, Diane, Judy, Anita, Patty, & Mark...

More on "other dealers booths" in the next few days...
Thanks to ALL of you who came out to support US...
