a fall boutique and new items

Happy Monday!
Well, I made it through my first boutique! Thank you so much for all your sweet wishes and encouragement! It truly made my heart happy and ready for the big day! ;)
It was a great experience, and was so fun to meet many lovely friends and customers in person. 
My alarm went off at 4 a.m. that morning, and was out of the house by 6 to pick up my good friend who came with me. It was such a blessing to have her there. Setting up the display went pretty smoothly, and I even had about 15 minutes to relax and walk around a little before it opened. 
My sweet family came to visit and do a little shopping. It was wonderful to have them there supporting me. There were so many other awesome vendors there, and it was wonderful to meet and chat with them.
The best part was just talking with the shoppers, and sharing a similar love for vintage goodness. I always love hearing the stories and memories that these sweet vintage prints spark.
The Lord truly blessed this day for me, and I am already looking forward to my next one on November 3rd!! 
Some new items from the boutique are in the shoppe! I will be adding more later in the week!! 
Wishing you a beautiful week, and I am looking forward to catching up with you all and reading what you have been up to!!
