Cherry Street Art Fest - Watseka IL

Here a few pictures of my booth at The Cherry Street Art Fest on Aug. 6 in Watseka IL. It was so very hot!! I felt melted by 7 am. And although it was very humid and hot, it was a successive day.

After purchasing two new tables, I made the table covers and pennants, painted the baker's rack black & added the curtain backdrop, made the pink front corner draperies, painted the canopy legs with rustoleum, recoated the canopy top with water repellant, made the sign for the front of the canopy (this got ruined in the heat) and lots more.

Here is a full view of my revamped booth with our lovely pickup truck in the back:

A wall full of purses, I have been busy!

A view into the left corner -

Lots of altered domino necklaces & my new floral necklaces -

Just a few of my Cigar Box Purses, these sell well -

The right corner with some more bags & my Scrabble Tile Charms display made from a vintage cigar display -

We came home totally exhausted and drained. But overall, it was a great day with a nice crowd.

Your arrangement of the booth was spectacular. I really do love your cigar box purses! I hope you are recovering from the busy, hot weekend.

Thanks everyone for your lovely compliments. It is hard to judge for yourself how things look to others.

It was a successful day, so maybe the new display helped draw customers in.

We are finally feeling better from the heat and all the hauling.
