ALL SET UP & READY FOR THE SVJ FAIR...PEEK LOOK!!


Hi ladies...a quick little post to give you a sneak look at my stall I have spent ALL day setting up for the SHABBY VINTAGE JUNK EXTRAVAGANZA~~~~~~~~

I must say having HAD a BIG shop in my previous life, trying to display "hundreds" of bits & pieces in a 3 metre x 3 metre space was quite a challenge...especially when i had all stuff packed away in boxes & suitcases & had NO idea what was where!!!!

Anyway...my wonderful 21 yo son arrived not long after I got to the venue (he drove a van I hired)...and he unloaded ALL my goodies AND erected the marquee I purchased for this event...

SOO the following are some photos of my stall...(was unable to unpack quite a few things as I literally ran out of space)...

Tamarah from "shabbyvintagejunk" blog..(organiser) HAS AN AWESOME STALL & has spent hours upon hours beautifully decorating the hall...

Alicia from "timewornstyle" blog is just next to my stall with GORGEOUS GOODIES...

Sam from "shoestringsplendour" blog...her stall IS FULL OF PRECIOUS beauties...

& from what I have seen from the other girls setting up...I TELL YOU..this would HAVE to be THE BEST/ORIGINAL fair of its type in Melbourne...if not Australia??

All the girls have been JUST THE BEST...SOO HELPFUL...GORGEOUS..with goodies to MATCH...

So if you want to experience THE ULTIMATE in markets....THIS IS definately IT...

There is a wonderful MIX OF VINTAGE/INDUSTRIAL CHIC...FRENCH CHIC...so DO NOT judge this fair by MY stall...~~~ there is a WONDERFUL MIX....

so please come along & say hello...

Ashburton Scout Hall...
High street
Ashburton...

frid/sat....8.00 am - 5.00 pm...

ALL GIRLS HAVE gone to EXTRAORDINARY lengths to MAKE this event TOTALLY AWESOME!!

xx andrea ps...I have to be there by 7.00 am tomorrow...so an EARLY START for a change for the OLD GIRL!!! PLUS i still have a LOT of tweaking to do & pricing!!

So glad I came over from Tamarah's blog to visit here! Your booth looks fantastic, you are using your space so well!
I could never get all those goodies in that space and make it look so fabulous!
I'd love to be there but it's a bit of a hop over from mid-Canada so I'll just have to be content with drooling over the pictures!
Have a great sale!
