Red Barn Market

The last 2 days I have been set up at the Brocton Red Barn Market in Illinois. This is the second year I have done it I really enjoyed it.

The promoters and staff are excellent and well prepared they take wonderful care of the vendors and customers.
It is a jurried show for fine crafts and antiques.

The setting is a big red horse barn in rural Illinois. The stalls are where the booths are it is fun and a challenge to set up there. It was a fun atmosphere . The crowds were really good.

My soaps were a big hit, I am glad because that means I get to make more.

My husband Jose had a really good time he loves antiques and he found a lot of things he couldn't live with out.

The photos are of my set up in my little horse stall midway through day 2. Because I am forgetful I didn't get any photos yesterday when my setup was fresh and full but you will get the idea. There is also a photo of Jose antique shopping.....

I am pretty tired but very happy...... I think I am going to go curl up on the couch and watch Torchwood on BBC America. Good night.....

Yes I agree a horse barn is an unusual place and it was surprisingly nice.
The area is VERY rural.
Thank you for your congratulations..
