Pictures of Spring Show

It’s “EVERY HUSBAND’S NIGHTMARE” show time!!

Washington County Fairgrounds.

April 18 -22, 2017  ~ Weekdays 10am – 8pm; Saturday 10am-5pm

(take advantage of the evening shopping hours if you want to avoid the crowds!)

I stopped back by the show to take photos after I had stocked my booth at Stars.  I wasn’t able to take as many photos at the show as I’d hoped to because I ran out of memory!

I brought plenty of signs!

And my ‘new favorite’ thing to make . . . . .

P1310645

CROWNS!

P1310646

Lots of different sizes and styles.

~ Vintage sheet music ~ Glitter ~ tea stained lace ~ with all kinds of adornments!

Something for everyone!

Look for my mermaid style crowns in the beach display.

Grubby candles!  I found a stash of grubby candles leftover from when we had our store!  They STILL smell amazing!  In fact, you will probably smell them before you see them.  This is the last of them, so grab them up while you can.  I won’t be producing them anymore.

P1310660

I brought lots of ‘bits & bobs’ for the crafters and scrap bookers.  Vintage Bingo cards.  Vintage paper doilies.  Little notebooks and journals.

All kinds of fun little stuff in these jars too!

 On to the rest of the show!

Americana and vintage; quilts, Pyrex and silver.

So much more than I was able to take pictures of!!!

Cream and black and white goes with everything!

Mother’s Day is just around the corner!

FREE parking & FREE admission.

It’s SHOW TIME!!

Sorry I’m a little late getting these pictures of the show posted.  I’ve been distracted by all this sunshine; as I’m guessing the rest of you locals have been too!  Fear not!  The rain is supposed to return tonight so you won’t feel guilty abandoning your gardening duties for a little shopping adventure!

Looks like ‘my color’ is catching on with a lot of other vendors!

And all these pictures just barely scratch the surface of what you will find at this show!  Truly something for everyone!

EVERY HUSBAND’S NIGHTMARE BAZAAR

is open from 10am – 8pm Today, Thursday and Friday.  Saturday from 10am – 5pm.

  SHOPPING TIP: Best times to avoid the crowds is evenings!!  

Every Husband’s Nightmare Spring Bazaar . . . .

Opened TODAY and runs through Saturday at 5pm at the Washington County Fairgrounds in Hillsboro.  Here are some pics of the signs that I took to the show:

P1130529

Not sure how well I like how I have it set up, but not sure how ELSE I could do it either!?!?!

P1130526

I sure two of the 8′ tables set ‘back to back’ to create one large square table; with a shutter facing outward on each of the four sides.

P1130528

I’ve got too many signs to really use the shutters to HANG them on; except for the little bit of extra room ABOVE the ones ‘stacked on end’.

P1130524

Had to take some of the really long ones and just pile them in a tub; and/or prop them at the end of the tables.  (can’t hang things on the wall of this facility!)

P1130525

I’ve got this one small ‘tiered’ stand that helps a little for some of the small signs.

P1130527

I’ll take an inventory again after the show to see which signs sold the best and probably weed out some that didn’t sell well for the next show.  (AND I’ll have some ‘holiday themed’ signs for the fall show to make room for)

P1130531

Keeping the ‘piles’ in order will probably be a challenge.  I’m sure they’ll get mixed up as people look through the stacks.

P1130530

Short or actually ‘building walls’ to display them on, this was my best guess.  Plus I have to be able to HAUL my display pieces in my car!

And that’s IT for my items at the show!!!   NOTHING like what I used to do.  But that’s life!  My bad back is just getting too old to haul as much stuff as I used to!

P1130533Here are some pics of the rest of the show.  )some of my signs are also placed throughout the other displays also.)

THE BEST DEAL OF THE SHOW!!!

We didn’t have room for this wonderful shabby chic vanity in the area with our other stuff, so it’s up towards the front end (closer to the registers) of the show. We got it at a GREAT price, and didn’t have to do any work on it, so we are selling it for just $39.95! It’s gonna go FAST at that price, so get to the show early!

And that is just the stuff that WE brought to the show! There is lots and LOTS more !!

Rest of the show pictures

Here are the rest of the pictures from the show.  Still lots MORE things that I did not get pictures of too.  Spring in the Country is at the Clackamas County Fairgrounds from April 8-12. 

Show owner, Laurie Bothwell and her mom are the ladies who make this magic happen.
