What a whirlwind! This was our first time to do a wholesale market. It was a huge learning experience and a lot of fun. And we picked up 42 new shops. yay!
Here are some pictures of the booth. We used 400 old books as table bases. Half of these were old Readers Digest we got at the thrift store for .25 each. The table tops are old doors that my sweet husband, Matt, refinished. He found one of them in someones trash on the side of the road. The other two were from my sister, Rachael's home remodel. Rachael also made the paper dress on the the dress form and the burlap curtains. We used old Pepsi crates from Yucatan for our store displays. Thanks Diane.

So much going on at once!!!
It has been crazy around here. Faith, Carol, and Dottie from Heart of the Bride had three work sessions with me this summer learning the ends and outs of pottery jewelry. The designs they came up with are fantastic. We will be showing them off this weekend at Market in Atlanta. You will be able to check them out on their website soon www.backtoafricastore.com
While Dottie and I are at Market, Faith will be in Africa training the women there. She will also be getting another group of women started making our drawstring bags.
It has been amazing to watch God work out all the zillions of details to make this project come together. It has been a huge growing experience for me in learning to trust and depend on Him.
Check out the adorable paper dress my sister Rachael Eden made to be the center of our booth at Market.
Take a look at her very cool blog....www.urbanedenal.blogspot.com
