I thought I would share some photos of my new Prairie Thistle space at Bottoms Up in the West Bottoms of Kansas City. I only had two weeks to prepare for the show so I quickly put together a booth design for the show. This venue is open the first Friday and Saturday of each month. I had such a lovely time at the show I have decided to join in again in April. I hope you can join me there, if you have never been to Bottoms Up you are in for a delightful shopping experience.
I will have a bit more time to prepare for the next show and plan to bring in more jewelry, antiques and French inspired goods for the home and garden.
One of the necklaces that I put together for the show featuring a large vintage shell button with a tiny sparrow wired to blueberry lace quartz.
I adore my sparrow cabinet that I had custom made to display my jewelry. It is four feet wide and five feet in height and features a hard rock maple top. It holds an enormous amount of jewelry, but would also be perfect for linens and lingerie. My Master Cabinet maker has agreed to make more of these cabinets by order. Send me an email if you are interested and would like more information.
It was a fun show with a lively crowd enjoying the lovely offerings of the antique vendors.
This was the first mannequin that I purchased long ago. It is actually a boy mannequin torso that I always try to disguise with lots of lace strategically placed creating a more feminine shape.
I also brought lots of antiques for the glass case in my space. This is a lovely Italian figurine of a family of Blue Jays.
Hand carved wooden statues of Jesus are exquisitely detailed.
A vintage beveled glass silver Victorian hand mirror and a white beaded purse with a tiny mirror in the clasp.
A pair of white leather Mary Jane shoes - too sweet.
Our leading lady of Bottoms Up, Gwen McClure. She's a lovely person and you can hear her laughter all day as she greets her returning loyal customers.
This is a photo of Gwen's lovely French inspired offerings.
Another booth filled with wonderful European antiques. The two consoles in the front have silver leaf tops.
There are no words....
What a wonderful weekend and I am so excited about the show next month and I hope you can join me.
