ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! Booth - December 2011 Grayslake Flea- Illinois

This past weekend Frog Husband and I "Split-A-Booth" at the GRAYLAKE ANTIQUE FLEA MARKET in Illinois...  Although we had a fun time together ~ "My SHaBBies" were way toooooo sandwiched-in on my side of the space...


It was challenging to make it all fit!*!*!




LAST WEEK ~ While in California, I picked up this
 FaB ViNtaGe Bottle...
***SNOW-MAID***  
It was "bittersweet" to see it sell...  The Winter Graphics Couldn't have gotten any better!*!*!  



The smaller-sized child's ski's SOLD right away, along with the poles...  I can just SEE it displayed in a basket with some greens GREETING HER HoLiDaY Guests...



PeRfeCt HoLiday "Coffee Table" Adornment ~ lasting long through January...  These naturally-frosted white pine cones were a nature-find from our FALL NEW HAMPSHIRE TRIP... 




These Vintage Bottle Garlands look FaB strung across a Mirror,Windows, Shutters...
Sooooo "Jeanne 'd Arc / Nordic Style!*!*!



How Fun is that Darling Green Cart
 with Red Wheels!*!*!  
It went to a very good home!!!  
Just PeRfeCt - For changing out "Seasonal Decorations"...



My Galvanized Buckets W/Painted Chalk-Board Area, were a good seller...  Adorned with greens ~ they'll make a PERFECT HOSTESS GIFT during your holiday visits...  Tuck-In a nice Bottle of Wine - even better!*!*!




Frog Husband had a LARGE AQUARIUM he wanted to sell...  I came up with a SNOWY WINTER-WOODLAND DISPLAY...
***SQUIRREL***



***RACOON***








Jeff's side of the booth...




PeRfeCt Table Centerpiece Adornment...




ChiPPy Primitive Cubby-Drawers

I just loved this Sweet, Smaller-Sized,
 Winter Wonderland "BiRdiE Display" with candle...
PeRfeCt to display - just about anywhere...  No Worries that it did not sell...  It will now be adorning OUR HOME this HoLIDay Season...

  2. I always love all your shabbies. So great the way you display them. I love the naturally frosted pinecones. I was in NH this fall too and brought back a lot of them. I've been using them in my decorating.

  11. was my first trip down to grayslake...anticipated it being a much more interesting/ truly antiques event...not all the newly created/ current market inventory. the show just didn't meet our expectations/ or the expense of the road trip
