Savannah Flea Market Festival

The Big Savannah Flea Market Festival hosted by Two Women and a Warehouse was held today on Bull Street. Today, was absolutely wonderful. Mel and I got up this morning at 4:30 a.m.-packed the car and headed to Bull Street to set up our booth for the big sale. Buyers started arriving before 8:00 a.m. and the selling began! It was great meeting new people, getting advice from dealers and store owners, making some wonderful contacts in the business and just meeting nice Savannah people. We got some great feedback from people in the business and we realized that our booth was showing well and we had items that people really were interested in buying. We sold a lot and even made a new friend that we will hopefully be partnering with at a booth in the Pooler area at a store called Treasures. (More on that later.) Mel and I enjoyed working together and hanging out all day under our tent booth. The biggest hit of the day were Mel's robots! He and my daughter, Kennedy, made robots and creatures out of junk-metal pieces they found at yard sales and thrift stores. Their robots are truly a work of art. I'm so proud of Mel and his vision for art-everyone LOVED the robots and were begging for more. I took lots of pictures and tried to capture the awesome day that unfolded as the sun came up-I'm thankful to the store for hosting such a great event! We will definitely be back next year!
