Thank you for being so patient about the farm event post. Busy week with catch up and filling custom orders on top of life !
As I hinted before, the setting for this event is just spectacular to view. The prairie setting is so calm and tranquil . . .
the gardens spectacular
so we had to get ready for what we all hoped for, a huge crowd of shoppers that would enjoy this wonderful setting.
It was so helpful having lots of help setting this event up. Ana Koval from Lock 16 in LaSalle and her son Peter handled the huge load of vintage furniture and rustic primitives. Here's Peter. George and I setting up the tents. Candy was so kind to be snapping all these wonderful pictures as we had our hands full.
After 2 hours, we were ready and boy, did we need to be ready for this . . .
We had a steady stream of folks from start to finish. We jokingly told everyone that our 2 tents were part of the pre-show as they had to pass by us to get to the barn part of the barn event. Here's where the line continued past our place, we are all the way to the left of this picture but you can see the line trying to get into the barn.
We had several new things we showed here.
