Spring Vintage Market Photos









Stunned!  I was completely stunned.  Taken aback.  Breathless.  It was that amazing! 
We had lines of shoppers out the door and photographers shooting the displays for an upcoming book.  God gave us the most lovely weather.  And I discovered that not only are the vendors talented artists, they can also run the counter, balance books, bake and do customer service like you wouldn't believe.  They were amazing in how they made the shoppers feel welcome and still watched over my family and our home.  It was definitely an example of "good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over"!

At the end of the two days one thing stood out to me in particular.  It wasn't exhaustion, though I think we were all about ready to fall over. It wasn't the quantity of sales, though we are SO grateful to each one of you that came out (I couldn't believe it when I heard that shoppers even traveled from many states away to visit our sale)! It wasn't that I got to meet the family that lived in my house for 30 years, though that was over the top cool!  What stood out to me was how this group of women ministered to each other and to those around them.  As I walked from room to room and visited with those outside, what I saw and over-heard was women lifting each other up, offering help, praying with each other and sharing experiences.  We were so blessed to be with each other.  I was blessed.  Honored to have been a part of it.  Stunned!  Truly stunned!
