Having Fun at the Weekend Show

Beautiful weather, though rather hot, a lovely location at One Way Antiques in King, great art, fun music, and wonderful crowds, but alas... not too many sales. Seems to be the state of shows these days. I made about 1/3 of what I made at the same show a year ago. Ah well. It was worth it just for the camaraderie and the inspiration of seeing the work of other artists. Here are some photos... hope you enjoy!

I shared my booth with my husband, and we set up next to the music stage. He displays most of his knives in cases, especially at outdoor shows, lest some small child come along and grab a knife and hurt him or herself. I try to have an earthy look at my booth to complement the style of jewelry that I do. So I use old Moxie crates, a moose anter, dried pinto beans, rocks (which I forgot to bring this time!!!), and other such things.

Here are a few shots of the location and other booths and sights there...

And here's a silly shot of me dancing to the blues of Big Ron Hunter with some old man who'd been dancing alone... and another good friend of mine who came to join in. Had a great time, but it seems I almost lost my skirt!

And finally, a couple shots of the band as we did our Sunday set.

So, same time next year, I suppose!


  1. looks like a lot of fun--and you look fab in those boots!

  2. Thanks for the update and the festival of photos :)

    Looks like you had a grand time despite lack of sales... I had to stop doing craft fairs altogether at this time :( but it sure can be a lot of fun when weather, friends & sales are to be had !

  3. It's sure great to see you, Rebecca, in some of your local "habitats"; you look great and the pix are super!Glad it was fun..

  4. Looks like a fabulous time!! I love your booth set-up.

  5. what a charming and beautiful location rebecca! your display is lovely and you look like you're having a blast kicking up your heels!

  6. Wonderful photos, looks like everyone had a fabulous time.

  7. Great photos and beautiful location! Love the wardrobe....those boots remind me of some Emmylou Harris outfits! Looks like you guys had fun! Maybe more important than big sales! Thanks for sharing.

  8. Super fun post! I really get a sense of who you are in your natural environment! Your booth looked great- sorry the sales weren't there though. Glad it was fun anyhow.
    And, your hubby is so handsome. I love beards! My man has one too :)
    Thanks for sharing, Rebecca. You put a serious smile on my face. I love knowing people like you who are so full of vitality and a sense of adventure. Awesome.

  9. I am getting such a kick out of your dancing partner there! hate I missed that! That guy is at every single outdoor music event that happens here in town and ALWAYS dancing! Summer on Trade, the Jazz behind Big Shotz, Downtown Jazz & Blues - it's amazing! All of them! And apparently One Way too. I love it. :)

  10. The show pictures are great. Your booth looks really really nice, wish you had a few close ups ;) Sales are down here, too. Hopefully not a sign of the times and I really hope not a sign of things to come. I looks like you had a blast, though.

    Great minds Janette... I think she looks like Emmylou Harris too!

    Rebecca, you look so happy and fun! I bet we would have a great time together. You and your hubby make a cute couple, too.
