I’m typing up this post still somewhat comatose. What a weekend!
The Fashionista and I drove from Phoenix to Laguna Beach late Thursday night. We encountered unbelievable traffic and detours. Up early Friday morning to pack up the truck we drove another 5 hours to San Luis Obispo. I was a bit of a nervous wreck hauling such a precious load for such a great distance.
Upon arriving I was filled with giddiness brought on by the creative beauty of the outdoor booths.
This lovely gem was set up like a French bakery and sold antique household goods. I asked for a card twice but alas was not given one. :(
The indoors booths offered just as much sparkle.
Both Andrea and I loved the booth content and styling by George Garma Antiques and Design.
I loved the silk ribbon accented keys placed in an enamel bowl filled with rice.
Galvanized canning jar lids with chicken wire inserts were offered by Time Since Remembered. As I often use my blue mason jars as floral vases the lids could act as a frog of sorts.
I walked by this antique chocolate mold twice but alas, it did not come home with me.
Our booth featured antique crates that beckoned a closer look.
Within each crate we nestled small vignettes of French found treasures.
Sparkly arm candy and beautiful baubles.
A Majolica pitcher was paired with a sundial and soap.
A basket filled with vintage millinery and antique lace came home almost empty.
The booth was definitely rocking the Casbah look. It was a tight squeeze often filled elbow to elbow.
I couldn’t have done it without this sweet girl. Isn’t she darling channeling her inner Audrey?
After a 10 hour day spent on our feet we sought solace at the the SLO mission.
Taking time to smell the beautiful flowers.
Sunday was another full day at the market. In the late afternoon we packed up, dropped off the remaining unsold treasures in Laguna and headed home to Phoenix arriving sometime after 3 am.
I was never so glad to see a pillow.
I’ll be back on Fit Friday sharing how we managed to eat healthfully while working as vendors and staying in a motel 6.
