The Chapel Market

Hey there, lovely people!

The Chapel Market | Perfectly Imperfect

So I showed you our space at The Chapel Market, and after we were finished setting up, we breathed a sigh of relief.  I was pretty proud of how quickly it came together and that we made it to Montgomery with no broken jars.

We arrived on Saturday morning at 8 am, and there were already folks to greet us there…

We put a few last minute touches on things (and even unpacked more product), and before long the doors opened.

This is literally second 3 the doors opened….

And this was minute 2….

Please imagine me now, pressed up against an old farm table with my massive zoom lens and southern drawl, “let me know if I can help y’all.”

That pic above was the line at 9:10.  It was NUTS in that place…in the best way.  We brought Julie, Natalie, and Lori…and are so glad we did.  We had two checkout lines, and neither stopped checking people out until 10:30…and just for one second, until the next people walked up.

I was so happy to be able to help customers and chat with blog readers…it was SO wonderful meeting each and every single one of you.  I didn’t get any pics, so if you got one of us, please send them my way!

Events like this fill me up and remind me why we do what we do–thank you for every kind word spoken and for your tremendous support at the Chapel Market.

Oh, and that cotton?

Gone by 9:20.

P.S.  A huge thanks to Layla for asking us to be a part and to the other vendors–you all are rock stars.

    Shaunna, It was such, such a special day. What a treat to get to shop and chat with all of you. Thanks for sharing your talent and vision with us. I am planning to see you in the shop before Christmas. Love those visits to Troy!

    Shauna, I was so thrilled to meet you at the Chapel! Wow, was it packed! While I was standing in line to pay for my goodies, a cute little lady was in front of me with a bunch of cotton. I told her that my father-in-law had a farm and I would have never thought to cut it and sell it like that; you’re so smart. The lady said to me, “well, it’s not real cotton”. I told her it most certainly was! I told her the stems just had florist tape around it. She was so excited! I thought you would get a kick out of that story. I so hope ya’ll do this again next year!

    Looks amazing from yours and Layla’s pics and all I can say is I am so happy I ordered my cotton stems online the week before the chapel market so I got some before they disappeared! :)

    Shaunna, I really enjoyed meeting you and your crew last Saturday! Your booth was precious, as were all the others. I just live about 2 miles from the Waters, so I’m really rooting for Chapel Market 2014, as well as continuing annual (or even semi-annual!) events.

    I really NEED an “Alabama state flashcard”, so please let me know if you get more of those in your shop or info on where to find one. I’m sure I will come see you at your place the next time I’m passing through your neck of the woods!

    Many blesssings!

    I had a blast helping Marian and seeing you again! Did you sell that awesome farmhouse table??? I cut out early and was halfway home when I realized I forgot to check with you! I didn’t take any pics so thanks for capturing my rear end waiting in line for the doors to open! LOL!
