Cool and Groovy Garden Party

This past weekend was my friend Lois' Cool and Groovy Garden Party. Every year just before the holidays, she invites her creative friends to set up in her garden to sell their goods. She sends out invitations and puts up flyers to bring the customers in. We have fun and entertainment and sangria and sell our stuff to wonderful people. 

She has hundreds of items she's made set up all over her house, porch and yard...

in her dining room... and bedroom...
Sorry, but all my pics of the living room didn't turn out :(



in the wooded lot next door... through this gate...



Sorry... can't remember this beauty's name, but here's her stuff!

We set up in the yard... Here's my stuff...

Brenda and Becky's stuff...

We had a wood carver the first day, but I forgot my camera. Entertaining neighbors come and put on a show. Of course they invited Lois up to play the tamborine with them...

It's always so much fun! This year I also set up a tea station for market research. You can read about that here.

This may be my last post for a while on this blog, as I'm really trying to concentrate on getting my tea business up and running. You can follow me at The Bohemian Tea House. I'm even considering just listing all of my crafts in my Etsy shop and only doing tea at events. I'll let you know when I get things posted there.

I'm sure I'll be participating in Tuesday Tea, either from here, or the tea house.

  6. I wish you the best of luck with your new business. It takes forever to get started and even longer to turn a profit. But I know you will make it! Loved your booth, too.
