Lititz Rotary Club Craft Show 2013

Another great craft show in Lititz, PA is here and gone!  Oh what a time!  I'm so lucky to have wonderful sisters who take time out of their busy lives to help me out! We pulled out Friday morning for a day of shopping and driving around the Lancaster area.  My niece was along this weekend so she was nice enough to take these pictures for me. 
We left the hotel room at 4:15am Saturday morning and finished unloading the truck by 5am! The next show I must take a picture of the boxed "treasures" and props covering the sidewalk. We fill it up! 
The weather was good to us!! The humidity was low!  The afternoon was a bit hot but we were able to move into the booth for shade.
The customers were plentiful and I was able to meet some new online followers along with chatting with my old friends!  Thanks to everyone that stopped by!
 
It is so funny after we are all set up I have some spots I love and some that just don't seem to have the look I want!   But time is always limited and we don't have time to make big changes so we deal with them!  This was my favorite spot for Lititz!  It could be those awesome chairs! LOL 


 My mom has been busy making the awesome coverlet stockings! We tried a different display using some old barn wood boards to hang them on but it needs some work before the next show, which will be the Shippensburg Corn Festival!
 I cut the wooden items out for the grapevine wreaths and my niece Becca painted and helped me put them together!  She was quite excited when half of them sold! I think I found a new helper!
 The trellis's made from grapevine were a big hit! One even found a new home in Wisconsin! Anxious to see how it traveled on its journey! Hopefully, Karen from KM Primitives will let us know!
 My son's birdhouse and benches from the old barnwood. 
 My sister Christa paints the barn wood signs on the bottom of this display. The black eyed Susan's looked nice in the little bottles I wired to old barnwood.

The not so fun part!!! Packing up! By this time we were hot and tired from the lack of sleep the night before and the excitement of the day! The show is over at 4 and we were pulling out of Lititz by 5:30pm.  
 
Now to get busy on more Fall items for the next show which is August 31st, Shippensburg Corn Festival!

  2. Sorry you didn't make it Felicia! Yes, my husband made the spice box but it did sell. I'm not sure if he will be making more or not. I will let you know if he does.

  6. Morning Teresa,
    Well I must say you had one of the nicest booths - along with Lisa George...she had some of the cutest Pumpkins!
    Can't wait to get my trellis up - and then to find the shade flowering vines. I guess I will need to go to a very 'expensive' garden shop for those. Can't imagine our local flower/garden shop would carry them.
    Thanks for holding my two items for me while we shopped.
    Glad you had a good day and the weather was perfect wasn't it.
    Blessings,
    Karen
