The Boutique.


the main display table in the living room
  The Holiday Boutique was on Saturday...and it was so much fun! And it was also a success! My aunt's house was completely transformed into a true boutique...it was great.
There were about a dozen of us who participated and there was a wide variety of items for sale...vintage finds like thimble shaped shot glasses, beautiful floral dessert plates, silver salt and pepper shakers, beautiful dish sets...and more. Very cool stuff...it was hard not to buy, buy, buy!

We also had handmade items...ornaments, hand knit wash cloths, adorable appliqued onesies, homemade dog treats, lots and lots of yummy baked goods, handmade wreaths, adorable sock monkeys, quilts...and more! 

We had a steady stream of visitors from start to finish. We mulled some delicious apple cider...we had Christmas music playing in the background...there was lots of laughter...and lots of SHOPPING!

baked goods beautifully displayed on the island
 
ornaments, glitzy wreaths (made by my aunt), glassware and
 rustic snowmen (made by yours truly...)

vintage-like glitter ornaments...one of my offerings.
 
Mr. and Mrs. Come-a-Calling...my mom made
these adorable little Christmas mice...and my
friend Sue took them home as a pair!

My Aunt Lisa made this sweet little mouse sitting
in a snowball...isn't he darling?

You might recognize this young lady...it's a
Mimi Angel complete with wings and a halo!

Appliqued onesies and fancy tutus...so stinkin' cute.
My cousin made these sweet little numbers and
they are adorable.

And would you believe...it was pouring down rain! It rained like crazy when I arrived in the morning...just in time to unload my wares. And then...it POURED in the evening, complete with thunder and lightning, just in time to load our cars and go home!! But that was OK...what's a little water?

Thank you to my Aunt Lisa for opening up her home for this endeavor. And I'd like to extend a HUGE thank you to my uncle D...poor guy was misplaced for about three days while his house was torn up and transformed into the Holiday Boutique extravaganza. But, being the amazingly good sport that he is...he made the best of it! (Thanks, D!)

How fun! I'm so glad it was a success. Wish I could have been there too, although I would have had to leave my purse at home. :)

I too would have loved to have been there...so many beautiful and sweet holiday crafts...what fun.

If I click my heels 3 times...maybe next year?

I love those snowmen! I collect snowmen too, but this year doubt they will come out of storage. So glad it was successful!!

NO wonder it was such a success...IT"S GORGEOUS. I want to go there all the time.

Your Aunt Lisa's mousies. Definitely, a must buy.

Glad it went well, I know you put a lot of work into it.
