We Canadians are a bit shy about self promotion, but that has to stop now! These girls are amazing!

Do Farm Chicks have to, because its not a competition!

Thanks to everyone who had a part in making this Market Great, Birch & Bird, ALL the Vendors!, The City Of Clayburn Village for supporting the community, Thanks to Ivory Vintage Market for getting the ball rolling....and to all the Folks who came out & made the day possible!

And a special thanks to my Family who where there, and those that weren't but wished they could!  my friends, my husband who had to go home for more "stuff", to restock the booth after the first hour! The Bloggers who came and said Hi, that was amazing to meet you all! And a HUGE thanks to my girl Shelley ...I could not have done it without you....Shelley you saved the day & made it so much fun....!

Thanks to Rachel & Lily for having the vision to start what I hope is an amazing new adventure for the area! To Rachel & Lily for being so organized, promotion, media!, beautiful signage, Love the sandwich smart!, yummy food, coffee & treats (where did those Lemon cupcakes come from???).

I know you want to see pictures, I had NO time to take any. But the professionals (and more organized ladies!) that did are listed here...
Birch & Bird, The Old School Market, Sari @ Definnative Arts.

So watch out for more from these amazing Girls!

Glad to hear that it was a wonderful success.

It sounds like a wonderful show. I sure hope I can make it there sometime in the future. I will definitely put it on my bucket list Coleen.
I want to thank you for the message you left for me on my post about Landon. Your husband is doing a wonderful work and I LOVE teachers who have chosen to bless the lives of the disabled.
