Pictures from the 25th Vintage Clothing Sale

I have posted some photos from the 25th Vintage Clothing Show, in the Ballroom at the Chateau Laurier. A heartfelt Thank You to my family for helping me get ready for this big event and to my Mom for volunteering to help out this week. She flew in all the way from Nova Scotia. No one can exhibit at these shows without a lot of assistance. It certainly is appreciated.

The Ballroom room is truly stunning . . . from the carpet all the way up to the ceiling.

This is the view from my booth looking out.

Here is my booth and darling daughter (helped for the entire day!)

And a picture from another angle. My coats and dresses did very well and the round rack in the middle of my booth allowed for easy traffic flow. . . although it certainly does get very busy at times.

I just loved seeing how many woman really got into the theme of the show and dressed up to shop. I think I will dress up next year too! This is my niece. She had a really fun day.

Love the polka dots below too : )

Thank you Ottawa for a Great Day !!!!

Lovely setting,Karen! Your girl looks very professional - I'll bet she was a lot of help! Nice to see a picture of Morgan. Can't remember the last time I saw her in person. Glad it was a success for you.
