To add insult to injury, at the end of the day some lads arrived to remove some of these props and trampled with their muddy boots all over a 19th century quilt as well as the 30s pink grandmothers garden you can see.
However, this did not seem to deter the shoppers and quite a few items were sold. Perhaps they like the messy look.
I notice that vintage fabric lengths are moving again.
My buddy Jeanette has a table with a different color scheme each week, this weekend it was maroon....she prefers to call it plum.
Some people are just plain ignorant, both in their manners AND in their knowledge of how valuable 'old' quilts can be. Argh!! Still hoping to get to that market sometime before the summer is over.ReplyDelete
It sounds as if you did a good job of keeping your cool. At least you had a good day.ReplyDelete
Oh say it isn't so that those clods got mud on the beautiful pink Grandmothers Flower Garden quilt! Hope you were able to clean it.ReplyDelete
sponged the dirty corner off as soon as I got homeReplyDelete
muddy boots?????? Oh my, I would die!! You seem to have accepted that a lot better than I would have done...ReplyDelete
Glad you had a good day despite the muddy boots :)ReplyDelete
Goodness! I think I would have cried if I'd been treated that way! Glad it was a success for you anyway.ReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my blog.
I would have loved to have shopped there! Glad the day turned-out okay, even with the "hassles."ReplyDelete
