Noel Vintage Holiday Market

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving celebration.  Even though we did it small this year, we still have enough turkey left over for several more sandwiches, but the pie and all the side dishes are long gone. We were blessed with gorgeous weather all week long including last weekend for the Noel Vintage Holiday Market.  The show was held indoors at the Placer County Fairgrounds on Friday evening and all day on Saturday, so we had plenty of time to set up before the opening bell on Friday.

This is the lounge that greeted customers as they walked in the front doors.  A perfect spot to rest your weary feet and chat with friends.

I couldn't believe the amount of natural light we had, I was tempted to put on my sunglasses when I arrived Saturday morning.

One of my favorite dress forms found a new home.  Her base is made from a vintage lamp; I think the lady who bought her might have plans to wire her up.

Most of my rusty stuff is gone including this ladder and stenciled ammunition box.

I'm having seller's remorse about letting my Tonka Ramp Hoist go, but I can't keep everything.

They were priced separately, but the same lady bought the set of six silver goblets and the mirrored tray.

Thanks to all my clever blogging friends (from this post) for the idea of using a ribbon to secure the wire cloche to the pedestal silver base.  Everything remained intact even when I wrapped it up for a customer.  

My mom's jeweled wreaths went to good homes.

The small silver trays and muffin pans disappeared along with the repurposed light fixture/spring tree.  I had to keep adding silver to the picket fence box, yes!

Let's take a walk around the room.....

Vendors were spread out on the stage too.  I wish I had a picture of every booth in the room, but so many were still setting up when I went exploring.

I'm definitely looking forward to doing it all again next year.

Lots of things on my "to do" list this weekend and next week.  I need to get all my stuff priced and set up in the store for the Paris Flea Market opening Thursday through Sunday.  I sold so much jewelry, so I'll be working on  replenishing my inventory for Holidays in the Vineyards at Big White House Winery on Saturday and Sunday.  Hopefully I'll find time in the middle of the night to clean my house for my good friends who will be staying with us and selling next to me at the winery.  I'm really going to need wine by then!!
