Last Wednesday when Mr SVJ & I were due to go up to the Scout Hall in Ashburton to begin transforming it from BLAH to FANFREAKINTABULOUS....I realised the battery in my camera had died....Unable to locate the charger I made a 'mental' note to come back for it in the morning & take it with me back up to the hall....
Long story short....It took Mr SVJ & I from 10pm Wednesday until almost 8am the following morning to do what we needed to do & I didn't make it home until the afternoon by which time I'd completely forgotten about my camera, charger & a number of other things....!
So can you believe it....ME....Tamarah Charter, Blogger, Keeper Of The Past, Organiser of the Shabby Vintage Junk Extravaganza, MULTITASKEREXTRAORDINAIRE....Didn't take one single SOLITARY picture to capture all our hard work....!!
I would think THAT in itself warrants me a turn or two wearing the DICKHEAD hat....But wait....There's MORE....
I popped in to see my GORGEOUS Friend Sue from Montreux / Trove Trading yesterday for a bit of a catch up & while I was there I thought I'd suss out what she's been doing to produce those DROP DEAD YUMMY pics you see on her blog....Well you could have felled me with a feather when she replied, "I just use my iPhone"....
C-R-A-P ....I HAD my iPhone in my pocket during the Show & DIDN'T THINK to use it....!!!!
Now that GUFFAW guarantees me some bench time in the DICKHEAD hall of fame FOR SURE ....hahahahahaNOT....!!
THANK HEAVENS Mr SVJ had his video camera with him so I managed to get video footage late Thursday afternoon....Unfortunately, the big lug's been using the camera at work this week so I have to wait until he brings it back home before I can share it with you....!!
I'm THRILLED to say the Show was a BRILLIANT success....The team of Specialists participating went above & BEYOND....The displays were AWESOME & the sets designed & built for the two days left no doubt as to the creative talents of the individual businesses involved....!
The hour long Early Bird session was WONDERFUL....We had 44 x Vintage Enthusiasts shopping up a storm prior to opening to the general public....!!
The gift bags were a big hit as were the prizes (from my own stock) drawn every 10 minutes....My ONLY regret was that I was SO BUSY, I barely had time to catch up with everyone....!!!!!
Now the LOVELY Ryn from Flo & Olive has kindly allowed me to use a couple of pics she took of her own GORGEOUS space....
I'm sure you'll agree this was a TREAT for the eyes.... :o) !!!!!
And then....The FABULOUS Miss Eagle over at The Network took a HEAP of pics & posted them on YouTube for us....I've been trying to leave her a comment to THANK her for taking the time to do this alas....Blogger is being a JERK....AGAIN....And keeps booting me out every time I try....!!
While this clip doesn't show a lot of the hall & the overall 'look' we achieved, it gives a GREAT overview of the eclectic Treasures offered over the two days....!!
The ever DELICIOUS & TALENTED Andrea over at The Pink Poodle also posted a heap of pics from late Thursday afternoon so you MUST pop in to see those.... :o) !!
Well I must away....To be honest I'm still K-NACKered & have spent the last few days trying to put my house, storage unit & paperwork in order....I think I should be done with all of that by the end of next week....I HOPE....!!
I'll be back tomorrow night to announce the winner of the Shabby Vintage Junk Extravaganza giveaway so stay tuned....!!!!!
