I got to be a part of the fabulous Deja Vu Vintage Market on the grounds of the Wellbrook Winery this past weekend. It was an amazing day, and even the weather cooperated! There were so many fabulous vendors, and it was so nice to see some familiar faces! The Wellbrook Winery is in Delta, B.C., which is about a 20-30 minute drive from Vancouver (depending on traffic). I ended up renting a Uhaul cargo van, and am glad I did, because I didn’t want to make more than one trip!
I didn’t have a lot of time to do a mock set up, so here is some of my stuff piled into the back yard getting ready to load it in the van. This past week, I was furiously trying to get all the pieces finished, waxed, hardware added, and so on.
Here is my booth just before the market opened:
The pedestal table and chairs sold almost immediately… in face the lovely woman that bought them almost cleared me out!
The mason jar soap pumps were a hit again. I think I sold all but 2 of them. Almost every single person that stopped at the booth picked up the mason jars to look at (yes, we started keeping track!).
I had a few aqua lovers like myself come in and purchase these goodies…
It always surprises me what sells and what doesn’t. These white end tables are the perfect example – I thought they would go right away, yet they didn’t sell. Same with my grain sack rocking chair!
My soy candles were also popular.
My french inspired trunk sold to a lovely woman…
Here is my mother-in-law Frances and me near the end of the day. She was such a big help loading, unloading, setting up the @#$$@#$$##! tent (that I am returning today!!), and keeping a sharp eye on the cash box!
Now onto some other vendors…
Here is Destin’s booth from Simply White. What a breathtaking display she had. Can you believe this was her first market?! I am blown away by her talent and so glad she’s decided to do this full-time. Her husband was also very kind in helping us unload and haul several heavy items from the van. Not surprisingly, she sold almost everything by the end of the day.
Here’s another vendor that I wish I’d had more time to spend browsing her booth…
The CeCe Caldwell gals were also there in full force!
Here is the winery and food vendors:
It was a great day and a lot of hard work, but a lot of fun too. Thanks Maris and Antonella for organizing this market!
