I have done craft shows before, and though I loved them, they were A LOT of work. Like “stay up all night the night before trying to get everything together, and somehow manage to get there on time with your booth looking cute” amount of work, meaning you are looking…. well like “you need extra concealer under your eyes” exhausted. That being said, they have almost always been worth it for the people you meet, fun stuff you get to see, and stuff you sell, or new clients you make. My goal is to do some more of these in the future.
So I thought I would try out the Nashville Flea Market. I have never done it before, and it is not exactly a craft show, but I have been there shopping before and it is AWESOME. I remember a few years ago going, and getting an amazing wrought iron chandelier there (which I ended up using at my wedding reception!).
I am SO excited! Who doesn’t love antiques, vintage finds, old furniture, shabby chic items, everything rusty under the sun….. I can just see the barn wood doors, reclaimed window panes, and rusty old gates now! Oh how will I ever manage to stay at my booth and not run off to rummage through things shopping?!
So, if you don’t have your memorial day weekend all planned out, grab some friends and come by! It is free to get in, but it is $5 to park and located at the Nashville Fairgrounds. It is a VERY large area to walk around and shop. It may be hot this weekend, but my booth will be in the Creative Arts building with lovely air conditioning Just look for booth 93….. the girl who might possibly look like she has that “extra concealer under her eyes” look from throwing this together last-minute
