ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! Booth LAST SUNDAY @ Cedarburg's MAXWELL STREET FLEA...

Making a "last minute decison" - to once again sell at Cedarburg's Maxwell Street Flea,
 was definitely a good one!!!
 I tappered my selling stock to accommodate the needs of this "lower-end" Junker Market and it worked!*!*!  Filling containers with flowers... AND combining like-colors, yielded little display effort on my part , which was welcomed ~ especially AFTER having a SaLe at Our Home - the day before... 

 I'm just A*M*A*Z*E*D at how many items flew out of my booth!!!
It was all about the "lower price point"...
It was a good feeling to know my "regular customers" 
found me in my new booth location as well...




Cotage-Style Porch/Potting TAbLe
Time-worn Old light blue paint
~ Still Available ~
Great Form!*!*!




• Rusty Crusty Planter Bucket...
•Re-Purposed Industrial Light Housing
Found Good Homes...







 BeSt PaTiNa
Naturally time~worn Bucket...
Sooooo much more interesting than brand new!*!*!



 Yummy Orange Colors
made EVERYTHING P*O*P...








 New ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! Customer, Sandy -
Vamped Over This MIrror as soon as the 
other Customer walked away!*!*!

BY DAY'S END
It only took an unheard of 30 minutes to
pack-it-up, tent included - YES!*!*!
Thank YOU SHaBBy ShoPPers!!!


It's Back to being BuSy ON-THE-HUNT
"Freshening My SHaBBy Stock"
In preparation for my NEXT S*A*L*E

SATURDAY, JUNE 15th
