Spooktacular October Sale at Loot Vintage Flea Market

At the last minute Nancy and I headed to the dollar store to make the shop look spooky for our October flea market.  

I love the white pumpkin that Nancy painted with a black crow.

I made a glittered, mini, boo banner for Nancy's fancy clown.

One of our customers rolled up in this beautiful, restored automobile.  It looks so good in front of our vintage shop and I had to get a picture of Nancy posing next to it.

This is what the back of the shop (our workshop) looked like a few days prior to the sale.  Nancy and I make a huge mess while we are working.  Nancy says that this is what happens with creative people.  I think that it is partly because we are both so busy and never have time to clean up.

We pulled the back room together just in time for the sale and made it look presentable.  Our customers never suspected the chaos that took place here before the sale.

Nancy hollowed out this giant pumpkin and filled it with a beautiful, fall flower arrangement.

We had new, talented vendors join us in the garden with all of their lovely vintage and repurposed items.

Nancy found this great wooden rosary and tall cloche at a pre-sale we attended at her friend's barn on Friday.

During our September sale, a man stopped by the shop and asked if we wanted to buy his trunk.  We love the weathered wood and the rusty hardware, so we took it.  It is now for sale at Loot and I think it will be the perfect coffee table.

I made some velvet pumpkins for the holidays and sold several of them during the sale.  I have one left in my etsy shop. I went across the street from my house to my friend's farm and she helped me dig through all of her butternut squash vines to find the left over stems.  I love them because they still have the delicate, little tendrils attached.

I also made some linen pumpkins with pretty ribbons and old copper wire.  The stem is from a dried sunflower stalk, also from Casalegno Family Farm.  This linen pumpkin is for sale in my etsy shop.

I hope you have a good night!

Your shop looks so amazing! I love the little clown holding the "BOO" banner. It would look so cool on my imaginary mantle. :)
