a couple weeks ago, i was pretty consumed with the spring stitch market. it was the best market we've had yet, and i'm sure you'll see why in this very picture-filled post!
some of these pictures are mine, and many are my partner in crime, emily's.
we used to host the market in my house in years past, but we moved to a bigger location downtown at our church for the last 3 markets and its perfect!
every market starts the same: cramming half my house into the back of a car.
since the kids are a little older this year, i decided to let them join me for unloading the car, setting up my booth and marking off the vendor spaces. other than a few "stop running"s and "sit in the corner for a few"s, they were actually pretty helpful.
thanks to stacy's suggestion, i finally hung all my bags and scarves, rather than setting them on the table. and i loved it!
my bread and butter, posies
this stash of baby blankets was thinned out over the 2 days of the market - yay!
not my best display ever, but at least it all fit!
my stitch market business partner, emily of blue corduroy
she does the best mix of vintage and modern!
aren't these big ol' bows so fun?! tuck one under a bun... perfect!
i can't get enough of these crocheted rocks!
they need to find a home on one of my many piles
emily madr the cutest granny squares, and turned them into sachets!
stacy lynn is the only vendor we let sneak in early because she is our biggest helper! after we all get set up we knock out the checkout table and the decorations and all the final details before the rest of the vendors start arriving and unloading - then the crazy begins!
stacy even gave my girls each one of these scarves for helping her set up!
we're all ready! let the vendors arrive!
molly of cookie & curly has been a part of our market for quite awhile - we love her!
