my first handmade market done! {The Threadery recap}

My first handmade market is under my belt! wowza!

The Threadery was two weekends ago and I can't believe that I pulled it off!

I felt like the three weeks leading up to the market were a complete blur. I literally had no product made and nothing for my booth made. I have to say I am very proud of myself for getting a booth created that I love and plenty of product made as well.

I was beyond scared to sell my items at out in the open. What if people hated it and no one bought a thing were constant thoughts in my head. Thank gosh I was wrong!

I am so grateful of my friends Tobi and Liz who drove down to see my booth in action and support me. You gals are super amazing and I am not sure how I would survive up in Ventura with out you too!
here is my booth! I absolutely love the way it turned out!!

I love that so many of us used fences as our back drop yet none of our booths look the same!

One of my favorite parts of the day was hanging out with so many amazing gals!

I got so much great energy, advice and encouragement from all the ladies who participated in The Threadery!

Below are some amazing shots of my product by the wonderful husband of Kristen who is the other gal behind The Threadery {Rock-A-Bow}
