Trade Days in Fayetteville, Texas

Fayetteville,Texas has the neatest little town square you've ever seen.
Once a year, they have a City Wide Garage Sale. The city population is
261. Don't let that fool ya! People flock there on that day. Also they
have a monthly trade days for art/antiques/crafts, etc.. Every 2nd
Saturday. The combination of the two draw lots of folks to this little
downtown square.
My dear friend, Dottie, told me about this little show. She had set up
before there and sold really good. Dottie is an artist I met at Brenham
Flea Market. We became instant friends the first day we met. David
and I decided Thursday that we would work on things to take Saturday.

The first pic here is some wire mesh wall hanging planters we made.
We grow this malabar spinach and this was a great way to show and sell
it. It was a big hit. I sold all the wire mesh planters!

I painted a few wares too. This next pic is a metal water can that I did my
Red Toile designs on. I love the toile on everything now..I am the toile
Queen now! I have gone Toile Crazy! It is available and I'll take it
to our Farmers Market in Brenham on Saturday.

Here's a little overall shot of my booth.

I love Vintage Kitchen wares. I collect a few, then sell, collect more,
you get the idea? Here's a shot:

This is the Courthouse on the square at Fayetteville. It is a painting
waiting to happen.

It was a HOT day in Fayetteville, but we were in the shady yard of the
Courthouse square most of the day.
You can see more photos of my booth and if you go to my picasa web album
