  2. Your booth looked fantastic, lots of great stuff! Even though the turn out was light, sounds like you did ok! Here in Nashville, they keep talking about doing away with the fairgrounds where our flea, which is really great, is held. They've come up with some pretty "stupid" ideas with what to do with the property like make it a park. It's close to industrial bldgs and a not so good neighborhood. Hopefully they will end up leaving it alone.

  3. Jeanine,
    More than anything, I bet it was the Superbowl that kept your customers away. Superbowl Sunday is a massive sports day and most women probably had to be home to feed people. Don't be sad about it. We had the same experience once when we planned a play on Superbowl Sunday. Pitiful ticket sales so we switched days.

  4. Yummy beautiful displays! Love that tray vignette! And the birdie linen. Oh yes a keeper! I love the one color thread. (The right color.) There's just no figuring shows is there!
