Lydia and I had the privilege of being vendors at the incredible Vintage Marketplace produced by Christy Repasy and Rita Reade. They created a magical environment where art and beautiful objects seemed to appear at every turn. Upon entering the show, shoppers were transported to another world - sort of like the moment in Wizard of Oz when the screen goes from black and white (Kansas) to vibrant Technicolor (Oz)...Everything in sight is Breathtaking!!

As vendors, Lydia and I were blown away by the care and custody provided by Christy, Rita, and Dean. Let me put it this way - Dean set up our tent in less than five minutes! Showday started with Christie giving us a beautiful vintage jar filled with goodies and a gorgeous bubble charm with our name (created by Rita, of course). Water bottles kept all the vendors hydrated. We had a waitress come to the booth to take our lunch order and Duke, the owner of the Oaks restaurant, personally delivered food --seriously, y'all - it was amazing!!!
