And what a day it was!

May 16, 2016

I came home and PUT MY FEET UP last Saturday after a busy, hot, fun, vintage-sellin’, flower-filled day at the Camas Plant + Garden Sale!

Ah!  It was such a positive experience and the fact that I got to spend the day with my sis-in-law and momma over Mother’s Day weekend was a huge dose of extra blessing!

Below is a photo recap of the successful event.  Pictures were taken either by Lukey or Caitlin…both talented in the art of photography and capturing the moment I must say, and so happy to have pictures as I was buzzing around and would have forgotten!

Luke, mom and I woke up at the wee hours and maneuvered the trailer into our spot on Cedar St. , set everything up and finished off the last minute touches.

About 9:30am, things started picking up!  It was really a consistent stream of lookers and buyers until about 2:30pm when it started to slow a tad.  Wouldn’t have it any other way 🙂

Caitlin was a rockstar scribe, documenting all our sales, answering questions and taking these gorgeous pics.  Mom was the surprise sales-lady of the day- she has a gift.  I loved being with them and sharing the fun.

Wildflower bouquets straight from the farm turned out to be a hit…being it was the day before Mother’s Day and all.  Hooray for last minute, cute gifts!

FLOWER WALL!  It finally made it’s debut.  I think it added a nice little backdrop for the front vignette:)

As much as I LOVE flowers of all kinds, succulents are where it’s at for me.  I love the way they look, the tiny-ness of them, and the fact that they stay alive forever and can be enjoyed year round.  Ma and I planted as many succulents and sedum as we could get our hands on and they went fast!

Aren’t these cool? ^^^

Found these at an old barn sale and was told they are vintage house vents.  I saw succulent planter for vertical garden??

Was pretty proud of my potting shed creation…wheels, hooks, industrial cart, vintage window…yes. It sold to a lovely lady named Nancy and I was so happy she was as in love with it as I was!

I really love this.

The day was a huge success in my eyes and well worth the time spent prepping.  I was so touched and honored when family and both old and new friends stopped by to support FFNW.  Truly humbled.  I loved seeing them.

Thank you so much dear ones.

As of now, I plan to make this a yearly event and to use it as a season “kick off” for our blueberry-flower-vintage barn sale extravaganza up at the farm!

More on that later…

Love and blessings!
