Arriving at 5:30am, we spent several hours assembling the booth, and setting out all the lovelies; here Laura’s pretty balloon chair~
Vintage French eyelash trim on vintage grain sacks~
The finished booth was stuffed with merch~
Oh yes, did we have antique French linens….
Dyed, ombres, neutrals….Stacks and stacks….
And pink….the Pantone Egg, vintage French medals hung on silk ribbons….
The little scooter…
Pink was splashed all over around the booth, including in the Evian bottles left from Christmas, filled with colored water, with Cupid’s Arrow~
Pink lemonade for our shoppers….
For our Valentine theme we had bottles of “Elixir d’Amour” (those Champagne bottles!)~
Grain sack pillows made with new old stock 1920’s puffy monograms set off the white linen stacks; other letters are available; pillows to order~
And about the most adorable vintage French footstool you can imagine, covered in the same vintage grain sack~
Laura had little gifts ready for our blogger-visiteurs~
And we fluffed and tied and sold a lot and fluffed some more~
Until after noon, when Laura started to worry, “Will Eddie Ross ever come by?” Chin propped on her hand, she looked something like cute little Opie in this pic~
Until….ta dum…. a chance encounter with the lovely Amy Meier~
Lucky Amy, she found a fine French linen sheet, with her initials!!
And happened to share with us “I know Eddie Ross, and Jaithan is still here!”
Left to right, Laura, Jaithan Kochar, Amy Meier and Jaithan’s lovely Mother, with a sweet little French Basketeer basket full of Metis gifts and Point a la Ligne candles for Eddie and Jaithan~
Suddenly, Laura’s expression was sort of like this~
Thrilled, I believe, yes, is the word, both of us! Our neighbors wondered “are those girls drinking?” No we said, it’s just the pink lemonade, with a dose of meeting a few Blogger Idols.
We are in the middle of revamping our online store. Please email us regarding specific items, and look for more spotlights on merch soon!
