Barn Chic at Junk Hippy

What a great weekend in Rosenberg, TX! This was my first show with the JUNK Hippy Roadshow and it was so much fun. I met lots of great vendors, talked with so many shoppers, and sold lots of clothes and junk! If there is one thing that Kristen and her Junk Hippy team do well, it is bring out the shoppers! The place was PACKED with shoppers for hours and I barely had a chance to check out other vendors' spaces (but I did and more on that in the next post!).

Here is a shot of my space. I sold this gorgeous rusty chippy metal bed. The couple who bought it wants it to be the perimeter on their herb garden. Great idea - hope they send me a picture!

Here was the rack full of clothing before the show. I bought the bicycle rack with the bags at market, but can you believe that I made the rolling clothing rack?! I thought it would be all cheap and crafty of me - how expensive or hard can it be to put together some plumbing pipe on a piece of lumber? 

Well, I'm definitely cheap, but I'm not very crafty, though I made a good attempt. I started on this in December and I finally finished it last weekend. It involved about 5 trips to Home Depot and the purchase of a new drill - a 6 volt plug-in drill just wasn't cutting it, so I got the ever-powerful 18 volt drill with multiple battery packs. I finished attaching the wheels to the board, stood it up, and then it nearly fell over. My dad pretty much rebuilt it and then we propped it up on 2 x 4's at the show so it was sturdy. 
It withstood lots of shoppers, so job well done, Dad! 

This is the first time my ladies have worn clothes in my antique space, and  they were looking good in their new dresses!

I was pleasantly surprised to sell more clothing than junk at this show - Barn Chic Boutique is off to a great start! I am looking forward to restocking with new inventory and am marking down lots of items on to make room!

Thanks again to all the JUNK Hippy shoppers for being so welcoming to a first-time vendor. I had a great time and am already thinking about which JUNK Hippy show to do next! Check back soon for pics of lots of other talented vendors at the show.

Have a chic week,
