Persimmon Hollow Recap - Day 1

I just want to start off by saying that I love our little store front.  I really think we used this booth space well and I love how everyone's things flow together well.  Also, if you are interested as you read this, there is still time to come see us!  I know we were all disappointed by the turn in the weather, but our building is HEATED!  So if you want to come out, know that you will not be freezing the entire time.  Pretty much every shop in the Hollow is heated.

Without further ado:
 How cute is that?  Our things are so colorful!
 We have actually rearranged a bit since the pictures.  The table is now all the way against the wall, which opens it up a ton.  As you can see, for the most part we mixed our things together.
 There is a large display of Gleeful Peacock on this side, which definitely attracted a lot of attention.
 On this wall you can see a big display of Weather and Noise along the shelves.  Angora Jane's colorful roving hung from the front cage wall and many people came in to touch the pretty softness.  
Many of my cowls hung from the other side of the cage and I scattered hat stands around the booth to show off the shape of some of my favorite hats.  You can also see Holly's jewelry and Shannon's chocolates scattered about.

 Here my headbands and a flower pot of Shannon's colorful white chocolate suckers commingle.  
 More pretty white chocolate flower suckers.  I love how she displays them in colorful flower pots.  At only $1.25 they are a totally affordable little treat.  (I did end up buying one little baggy of white chocolates.  They are shaped like giant aspirin tablets and actually say Aspirin on them)
 More cowls and roving!
 My view from the corner.  Shannon and Holly and I sandwiched ourselves behind the booth most of the day, although we each took turns running around to look at other shops.  I did end up getting a few things to add to my display, I am totally excited for the ARF show and all my new display stuff!
 This cutie patooty came to visit us in the middle of the day.  Look at her modeling one of my baby bonnets.  Isn't she the cutest!  Well, I am going to make her one in either green or blue and a tad bit bigger because the ones in the booth are infant - 6 month size and she needs one a bit bigger than that.
You may remember her sweet face because she owns one of my blue baby pinch hats and a giant pin Sunshine and Carousels flower which she has pinned to the hat and wears with beauty and grace.  :-)

We had a good day of friends and fun and met a number of really nice Red Hat ladies.  We are hoping for another fun day, please don't let the weather keep you away!
