Fall Show @ Zapp Hall

This Fall Show was hotter than I'd remembered in a while.  I know we always try to prepare for the hotter show in the Fall than the Spring, but I think this past show won for definitely being the worst as far as heat.  It was humid almost the 10 days we were there, but we did have a welcome surprise when it rained for one day.  No complaints were heard for the rain, we so needed it.



However, despite the heat, we still always managed to have a good time (wait until you see the pictures as proof~oh my all I can say is I can't wait to show them to you)!!

The customers that came out bought and even though I sold tons of things I still looked like a I had a full booth.  Toward the end, actually when we were packing up I sold three more pieces of furniture.  I had bought a really cool leather chair, I don't know how I didn't take a picture of it, but it was muted tones of gray that had worn to this color with time, went to a new home in Austin.  I was glad to see a young couple was going to be enjoying it.

I think customers were definitely being more careful with their purchases and they seem to be looking for more and more uniqueness.  This is sometimes hard to find, that's what I try and find as well.  I am just thankful that despite those that had been told that we were cancelling the shows due to the wild fires still came out and bought.  They battled the heat too but it's always worth coming out to the shows since it's only held twice a year.  I think we had really good crowds during the entire show. 

Here were pictures of my booth:

Thanks again to all the customers and friends that came out.  I'll be posting many more posts.  Hope you are having a great weekend.

  5. I was talking to Ted the other day, Gloria's husband. And he was telling me how bad the heat was. I've heard that from a lot of people. Doing a show has got to be tough enough, but in that kind of weather? My heart goes out to you all. Great photos, and glad you did okay!

    Take care, Sue

  8. Your Booth looked amazing and I'm so glad you're sharing photos of the Show. I didn't make it out so its still high on my 'Bucket List', but I did notice that it looked swelteringly humid in the few Posts shared here in the Land Of Blog... not nearly as many sharing visuals of the Show this year so I had wondered if the turnout was far less than usual. I'm glad to hear that enough peeps braved the elements to make the Show a great success for all the wonderful Vendors that worked so very hard to bring fab eye candy for everyone to enjoy & consider purchasing.
