{riding & trunk show}

Good Morning to you!!
What a weekend it's been.
In true simpledaisy style I thought it would be great to get up early Saturday morning to do a 20 mile ride with a friend:) All this before I headed out for the simpledaisy trunk show the same day!!
It was just such a gorgeous morning. I was so happy we decided to ride. Here's what you'd see if you headed out to the country in Indiana:)
Lots & lots of farmland!
It was a great morning & even though we were pretty slow it just felt nice to get out on my bike for the first ride of the season!!
Now I am starting to feel the 100 miles in my future.....stay tuned:)
I told you I was going to do a trunk show at a friends house.
Well.....i'd be lying if I told it turned out as I had it planned in my mind! It was cold and gray outside and not a lot of people came. Good thing I had my trusty wine:)
You know I picked this wine for the label......I thought it would be perfect for this event!!!
Matches my display:)
Even though not a lot o people came.... I was SUPER thankful for the wonderful people who did come and who were kind enough to purchase a few simpledaisy pieces!! I hope I made them super happy!!!!!!!
My friend who hosted the trunkshow also had 2 other talented women bring their merchandise.....
We all set up on her deck!! It was so cute. She has the most cozy backyard.

Here is Sara's display....
So completely adorable! Her company is named Girlogik & she makes all sorts of girlie things:)
Stefanie was also there with all of her amazing things she makes in her studio!
I wasn't able to get as many photos of her set up because she came a little late and I had already had my camera put away....
But if you live in the area her shop is Interior Elements & Design...
Well...darn...she doesn't have a website but I included a link to her shop's address:)
And my set up.....

What do you think?!?!? Except for the wrinkled tablecloth!!
But that's how I roll......always in a rush and a little messy:)
I also included lots of cute little starfish......
Starfish just make me smile!

All in all it was a really wonderful time! It was all set up like a cute little shop in the French Quarter. Plus shoppers got enjoy some delicious appetizers and vino. How could that not make you happy??!?
Makes me want a cute little shop of my own......maybe someday:)

Hope all was well with you this weekend!! Did you have any big plans!?!?!?

  1. Wow, cute set-up. Love the idea of a "trunk show" in someone's yard. Too bad about the weather but, at least, you didn't get rained out, right?

  3. What a cute idea-your items all look beautiful. Good job on the early morning ride-I went and rode some hills yesterday-killer hills were you are pedaling 4 miles an hour-2 hours later I was back home. I am glad I did it and wanted more. It looks like you have some pretty countryside to ride by with no cars-i hate cars-they make me nervous.

  6. Your table looked quite bright on a not so nice day. The aqua frame, boxes, starfish plate were great backdrops.

    I cannot believe you pedaled 20 miles before the show!

    I'm happy you had a few sales and hope more will come because of it.

  12. Love what you did! The display is bright and fresh...perfect for Simple Daisy. Plan to do this again...in the fall, for the holiday purchases. That is often a great time for "trunk shows". We always had a great turnout with our October/November shows in Dallas and Knoxville...Christmas shopping?

  20. Hi! I do love your display and you have the right attitude. When I had my Stella and Dot party it was a low show but I still had fun! I do love those stamped pieces, surely that beautiful bracelet flew off the shelf. Either way, you have a great attitude that inspires us all, especially that 20 mile bikeride EEK!!! I feel I am pretty active taking the dogs out on a bunch of walks a day, but you my dear WOW! Again another way how you motivate the rest of us! :)
