ROTP, We did it again!... and better!


Thesaurus in hand and I cannot find the right superlative, nor many other adjectives to describe the unbelievable experience at Remnants of the Past. Getting ready for it was exhilarating, and yet some times nerve racking. Getting up at 1:30 in the morning to get there was extremely difficult, but once we were on the road, 
we were giddy with glee and anticipation




Setting up was grueling sometimes as we unloaded all our treasures, 
but as Martin and Johan worked together to arrange everything, 
it was delightful to see it develop.



I walked around greeting all the other folks as they set up their booths and took photos. I would have posted them here, but most of them did not give me their permission as they were sweating and wearing work clothes. So vain!  I love watching all the folks proudly doing their best in designing their booth and may I say they were successful! I was so proud of everyone!




This is only our second time doing Remnants, but I think there is consensus in saying that it was the best planned, the best designed, and just the BEST ever! Judge for yourself, but keep in mind that our photos do NOT do these folks justice. Be there next time and you will experience one of the best vintage sale events of your life,
 and I do dare say THE BEST! 






Our thanks to Judy and her magnificent team, and also to all the other vendors, some of whom drove over a thousand miles to get there!  A special THANK YOU to all the customers who came from all over and a very special thank you to my team, Martin and Johan who are just stellar!

As always, a beautiful post and narration that connects all the dots! Thanks so much for welcoming us to our first Remnants of the Past Show with such generosity and good humor. The experience was amazing all around, even if it was a grueling 2,200 mile journey. We look forward to sharing this experience with you again next time as well!
