Pink Pumpkins on Parade....

Saturday was the Pink Pumpkins for the Cure event to raise funds for breast cancer research. We did a fast two-hour load in & set up with product on hand and some goodies made especially for this show - like the pink chenille pumpkins, above. What do I mean by fast?

9:30 AM looked like this^
11:30 AM looked like this V

Whew!!! That includes hauling all of the furniture and bins of smalls up a flight of stairs, too! We filled the booth with lots of goodies for girls of all ages:

Lots of soft ivory & tan, gold, and pink

Vintage-look flowers and a great chandelier (wish we'd had electric!)
Some collaged items and embellished bottles, plus the brand new issue of Victoria magazine
More pink pumpkins, flowers, & collage items.

All of the vendors wore pink, with requisite pink bracelet and pink ribbon pin. The sun shone in the big windows of the century-old library building all day - it was gorgeous!

There will be some great shots up on the Faded Elegance blog within days, showing all the booths, vendors, and shoppers. It was a really great time and a worthy cause! If you came by, thank you so much for supporting Snohomish independent merchants and contributing to the Susan G. Komen Foundation! If you didn't make it, don't worry - not only will this event happen next year, there may be a spring event as well!
