Well, the lead up was stressful but I did it! Or, I should say “we did it!” because I had some amazing help along the way. It pulled together and I was so proud of how it turned out, I had to share!

The view from outside my booth – with my Mama there to help me! 
Loved this letterboard from Letter Peddler – a Canadian letterboard company

You’ll see little critters my mom made – her little company is called Tunbridge Knits, and I will be carrying these adorable hand knit stuffed friends in my shop. They were a crowd favourite, people couldn’t stop talking about their detail and quality.

Shoutout to my amazing hubby who built my peg board wall for me. We were a little worried as we built it, the plywood was VERY splintery (so we may need an upgrade at some point) but it worked out in the end! I love that I can change the layout as I need! 
Samples on the table of my work! 
These were favourites too – the memory match games! Images were placed onto the wood and the outlines wood burned to finish. 
More cute little friends. My chair was tucked into the back corner there which seemed to work out great! And we were in a great spot that didn’t get too hot, especially on such a hot day like we had! 
Another favourite – Storytellers! These were scooped up by a few teachers actually, which made me feel pretty good! They encourage imagination by creating a story sequence based on whatever image is pulled from the bag! 
The Camping/Outdoor themed Storytellers! 
More setup shots.
I love this little mouse. I scooped up some of our wooden blocks that are decorating Silas’ room and waiting for him to be big enough to play with them! They made such a great little addition to the decor here! 

All in all it was a great experience. Since it was a 12 hour day I was absolutely EXHAUSTED by the end of it, and probably will feel the effects of it all week because I am not used to that much social interaction!! But I feel like I made some great connections, met some amazing people, and learned a little bit about prepping and running a booth at a market. It was a great debut, and I can’t wait to set this up again soon! (July 29/30 – mark your calendars!!)

HUGE THANK YOU again to my mom for bringing me last minute things I needed, bringing me lunch, and hanging out with me, to Erin for bringing me cold root beer treats and picking up our dinner and hanging out with me at my booth! To Bethany for watching my littles while I did some last minute running around the day before! To my hubby for the pegboard, the set up/tear down help, and support and encouragement of my little dreams. And to anyone who came, bought, or even just stopped by my booth to say hello, your support and encouragement means the world to me.
