My 1st Furniture Sale...

Here we go...
sleepy, nervous, and excited,
not quite sure what to expect.
The trailer is loaded.

All set up and ready for the sale.
Love how the dresser turned out
in the fabulous turqoise...
It sold and I am having seller's remorse. :)

It was sold to a teen for her room.
Just what I imagined...
She was practically laying
on it when she found it. :)
So I know it will
be well loved.

The man who helps make my dreams
become possible however he can.
Love him :)

My Mom and Daughter,
thanks for all your help!
Love you both!

All in all our first sale was a huge success.
It was held at our small hometown Fall Fest.
Another reason to love small town living
is all the love and support from
close family and friends.
We couldn't have imagined
a better start to our
newest business venture.
Thanks to all who came out,
for all the warm wishes,
and to those who purchased our furniture.
