Vintage Lynchburg 2016

Share this with your friends!

hs2016It was a chilly, but beautiful Saturday for the Vintage Lynchburg Holiday Sale.  We were able to get everything set up the night before, so I was ready to go by the start at 7:00 am (coffee please!!!).  I’m always a little nervous as I get everything ready for the event.  Fear creeps in and I start to wonder if anyone will come by my booth and/or if anyone will like what I have worked so hard on for months!?!?booth2016I definitely have to keep my thoughts on promises from the Lord…and I start to feel more at ease after the first sale. 🙂 It’s rewarding to know that something I made is blessing someone else life.
It was so encouraging to have many of you (and other friends) stop by to say “hello.”  Thank you!!

This year I had a lot of “reversibles” for Thanksgiving and Christmas that made it fun for customers.

Thank you for sharing this journey with me.  Please let me know if I may be of service to you.

Update: My paperwork to open an online shop is almost completed.   Who knew there were so many details and paperwork to complete to be able to do business in Virginia! 🙂  I decided to place both Happy Heart Books and Happy Heart Made under the blanket of Happy Heart LLC.

Here’s a new logo design for the shop (this was for a black & white ad for Vintage…it will be yellow…such a happy color!).  What do you think?  screen-shot-2016-10-04-at-4-01-34-pm
