Selling my Wares at the Clark County Fair

It has been a couple of weeks since I posted, simply because I have been so busy getting ready for the Clark County Fair's Country Store.  I live here in Logandale, NV where the Clark County fairgrounds are.  Las Vegas is part of Clark County, so it is quite a large fair that lasts 4 days.  I helped set it up and worked there during the fair also.  Whew, I am glad it is over!    The following photos are of my wares and my section in the Country Store.
First off this is the black satin covered dress form I got for $5.00 at an estate salea few weeks ago.  It smelled reallly bad of cigarette smoke, so I got the most flowery bottle of Febreze and dowsed it about 6 times.  The odor came completely out and it smells so fresh.  I have other plans for this dress form, but for now it was beautiful covered with an antique dickie and a vintage collar.  It was perfect to hold all of my necklaces I have made that are for sale.

Next up at the same day I found this little gem of a cabinet.  Broken glass and very dirty, but there was a vision and it turned into this. . . . . . . . . .
Love I added molding to the drawer and painted it with a Robin's Egg Blue chalk paint that I made myself.
Here is another tray that was in an earlier post from the same day of yard sale finds.  I love chalkboard art, so thought it would be fun to do some on the chalkboard I had for sale.
a few of my pillows
one of the aprons I made with vintage buttons and doilies
this metal tray became this chalkboard
more stuff

Many things can become chalkboards
Another apron with vintage buttons.  All of my pillows and aprons, have vintage elements on them.
More of my vintage elements pillows were there.

My next project is to go to a new show in Henderson Nevada that specializes in vintage, antiques and collectables.
