Hico Vendor's

 You've seen the preview of who all was there and I know you want to see more.  It really seemed like a great show, there were so many people there and I was wishing I had been able to go out on Friday since the booths I stopped at seemed picked over.  Here's what was left when I was there on Saturday:

Let's start off with Mickie and Brandy's space.  I know while talking to several of my friends there, they were wanting to construct walls for the show and I think several of them used some cleaver ideas to do this.  Mickie used burlap that was applied to wood and old steel bed springs for a partial wall.  Love that she hung ironstone plates on it.

I could tell they had sold good because their booth was pretty empty.  If you know them, they can pack it in.  I still managed to find a few treasures with them.  As a reminder, they will continue their Accumulations Vintage Home and Garden Fair again in October, tentatively around the weekend of Halloween.  So please keep watching for details.  Their show will again be in Driftwood.

Next, we saw Denis of Ruby Grace:
I loved what he did in this display.  You can't go wrong with clocks and Raindeer moss.

He had so many fun things in his booth:

This was the new vendor, Brenda I had mentioned from the previous post:
Her booth was so interesting.  Such pretty handmade things.

Here's more of her booth:
She said she's located in the Homestead store in Fredricksburg and no she doesn't have a website.

Moving on to Linda's booth:
There's Ludmil, hard at work.

Of course Linda had pretty things:

I had to include this picture of the walls that Ludmil builds and brings to the shows:
Aren't they fabulous.

Next, I stopped by to see Amy of Bloom and Bee Swanky:

She had such pretty mannequins that she said had hats and other things which all sold the day before.

Look at this wonderful table she had:
With her signature candles on it.  They smell so wonderful, espcially the lemon grass one.

Here is Gloria of The Sweet Pea's booth:
She's now carrying beautiful linen clothes, which can be found in Winnie and Tulula's in Athen's.

She had pillows piled in a daybed:

The Winnie & Tulula crew are having a sale on June 5th at the store.  Be sure and check out the details on their blog.

Next up was Dorthy of The Shabby Y's booth:
She had such interesting displays.  Lamps that were recreated from slips and cups and different things.

Here's another great idea:
Repurposed broches that now hang on pearls, so pretty.

 If you were looking for pearls, she had them:

Finally, I stopped back at Felecia's booth:
Look how pretty her booth looks.

She was set up with her sister-in-law Mandy of A La Parisiene:

In case you don't know, Felecia makes the most pretty things, pillows, cones, and many other things:
Wasn't that a great trophy.

Look at this beautiful cone:

My final destination was the Hico Store:

Such interesting displays:

Pretty things were everywhere:

I'm always drawn to flags:

They previously had the white store that I mentioned in the post about Hico, but was told they've closed that store.  Hope you enjoyed the tour and will plan to come out to their next event in October.  If you want to see more of the displays, click here.
