The Vintage Dames descend on local Fairs with CeCe Caldwell’s Paint Flying!
We are just now catching our breath after 3 weekends of Fall Fairs and then today, a road trip to Maryland to batten down the hatches on our sailboat in preparation for “Sandy”! Who is “Sandy” you ask? She is the approaching hurricane forecast to hit the East Coast on Monday, October 29th. They expect her to pound on Pennsylvania, Tuesday, Oct. 30th, one year to the day that we were dumped on by another Nor-easter that brought a record snow! Sandy is looking like she will stall for a couple days dumping up to 4″ of rain! We are praying that she will hang a right and head out to sea!
The first event we attended was Shrewsbury’s Fall Fest on October 6th. We joined our friends from Pink Pretty Peonies and set up on the corner of Main and Forrest in front of Serendipity Antiques! This was a great location. Just a short walk to Juliana’s In The Village, a fabulous restaurant serving French Press Coffee and locally raised, all natural artisan foods. Perfect for this organic coffee connoisseur selling all natural chalk + clay paint!
We met a lot of people, told them how great CeCe’s totally green paint is, showed them how easy it is to use, and sold some too! One of our customers started painting a table, bought it, the paint and wax before heading home!
Our second event, October 13th, was at Pearls Market in Downingtown. We were invited to do demos and set up with the ladies from Re~Fresh. The will be a vender at Pearls beginning in November… stop in and say hi for me!
We dropped some paint off to our friends of Shutters & Sand who were set up in the parking lot of Pearls with a house full of beautiful painted furniture! Karee delivered my custom shelf she painted for me… it is sitting on its side in the picture above, has the sailboats painted on it… it is beautiful, I was so pleased with it. I promise to post pictures after I get it hung.
Another beautiful fall day, perfect for “letting the paint fly”.
Last Saturday, October 20th we set up in our hometown at the “Dillsburg Farmer’s Fair”.
We saw a couple classmate, some relatives and even a neighbor or two, such as Sue and Craig of Mowery Antiques they were checking out our eclectic display of stuff!
It looked like rain, but never did. Later in the afternoon the sun was warm and the day was beautiful.
We had a great opportunity to introduce CeCe Caldwell’s Natural Chalk + Clay Paint to the Dillsburg area. Dawn from Antiques on Baltimore stopped by to say hi and check out our cool vintage stuff!
The beautiful vintage quilt with the peach border found a new home with Nancy. It was hard to let go, but she treasures old quilts as much as I do and I know it will get the tender care it needs.
We met a mother and daughter who were as excited about our paint as we are. They were heading home to decide what to paint… looking forward to seeing them at one of our workshops.
Thank you to everyone who stopped by for a chat, picked up a brush, and bought some paint at each of these Fall Fests. You are the reason we hit the streets with CeCe Caldwell’s Natural Chalk + Clay Paint.
If you missed out on getting your hands on some CeCe green paint, you can purchase it from ouronline store.
