The last five days have been a blur. Market has come and gone. I’ve been halfway across the country and back again. New friends, new ideas and a new appreciation for the work it takes to make huge events like Market happen. It’s going to take a few posts to share it all with you.
Friday morning was Jane‘s Schoolhouse lecture followed by booth set up. Quite a dramatic difference in the before and after photos, don’t you think? Boxes and suitcases filled with beautiful fabric treasure transformed a small, dull space into a colorful corner of optimistic beauty.
The show stopper, fondly called “Doris”, was the mannequin on center stage dressed in Sassaman style. Susan, Jane’s assistant, made the dress using Vintage Vogue 1094. She sewed sequins to the center of each daisy on the skirt for an eye catching sparkle that delighted passerby.
The 100 Billion Stars contribution graced this side of the booth. I’ll show more of those up close in another post. Picture taking at Market is an iffy proposition with a point and shoot camera. I did manage to get pictures of most items before shipping them ahead.
There’s more to tell but I need that second cup of coffee in the worst way. Have a great day, everyone! I’m looking forward to more Market posts, so stay tuned!
