what a weekend...

What a weekend we had at our At Home With White Event at The Wrentham Country Store!!
I arrived early Saturday morning to help Mary Ellen with a few last minute preparations...
Can't believe I did not think to wear white!!!

Mary Ellen spoke a few words to welcome our customers and thanked them for patiently waiting until our advertised opening time of 10:00...
We had many people pulling in at around 8:30!!

One of my fellow shop girls Karen of A Shabby Moment In Time and I were getting ready to capture the excitement of our grand opening...
I am sure I do not look as cute as she does in the photo she took of me!

Then the shopping began...
And it was crazy busy all day long!  Our customers were so excited and complimented us on our beautiful displays and how they felt like they were at Brimfield! 
Wow...thank you!

The beautifully sunny day was full of fun and laughter.  Meeting new customers and catching up with our regular customers was just great.  The energy level was high and then ~ the bloggers started showing up!!

Diane from Passionate for White looking beautiful as always...

Then, the sweet and lovely Wanda from Vintage Fleurs drove down from New Hampshire...
Thank you again Wanda for my beautiful gift!!

Another pretty lady shopping the tent was Jo~Anne Coletti from Vintage Rose Collection...
Me, Karen and Jo~Anne

Now the day was just so much fun but it was about to get more exciting!  The beautiful Susan from Evelyn and Rose came to visit... 
Susan and her adorable daughter Audrey.

It was so nice to finally meet her!  My cheeks hurt from smiling so much!  She came with her family and it was so cute to watch her shop with Charlie and Audrey.  And to top it off she has the most patient husband, letting her shop til she dropped!  Thank you Brian, we had fun!

So there I was, feeling all happy and excited ~ looking around at the shoppers and enjoying the sunshine when this sweet, petite, lovely lady wearing the biggest smile was coming toward me.  It was a blogging friend who came to surprise me...
Michelle and Me.

The lovely Michelle from Petite Michelle Louise!  What a wonderful surprise!!  We have been blog friends for quite a while and it was just such a pleasure to meet her!  We just started chatting away like we have known each other forever!
Thank you Michelle...you really made my day!

Thank you ladies for making the long drive to the shop...it was truly a pixie dust moment for me to meet you!!
Susan, Karen, Michelle and Me.

I would like to thank all our customers for making this event such a huge success!

Big thanks to all my fellow tent girls (and a few guys) for creating such fabulous displays!  All your hard work was worth it and I am so lucky to get to work with you!  I can not wait to see what you create next year!

I also want to thank all the other shop girls for making their booths inside the shop look amazing for the weekend too.  I have never seen the line to check out so long!!

Thank you Mary Ellen for making this all happen.  Thank you for making me a WCS shop girl.  Thank you for being my friend!

Last, but most important, I want to thank my wonderful husband Jim.  I could not have done this without you...
I Love You!

Thanks for visiting today!  I have a lot of photos to share with you this week.  Photos full of fabulous treasures and the people who put it all together!

What a weekend!!!

Susan said...

Oh Sandi,
I am still beaming about this weekend, and meeting you. It was a spectacular event! I would say even better than a Brimfield tent, because of the fantastic 'staging'. I'm still having moments of regret for not bringing home more items that I'm 'recalling'. Hee hee...
Thank you for being so sweet and for a wonderful event!!!

Sandi,

The sale looks wonderful! Sounds like a roaring success.

I'm sure for you the best part was the blogging bud visits. How exciting. The friendships formed here are truly the best part of all this, and to meet up with gals on an already exciting day, well you must be exhilarated and exhausted...

My daughter and I cried like babies when he left!
