Monday Recap

What a lovely fall weekend. The leaves on the tree in our front yard is finally turning shades of orange and yellow, and there was a consistent chill in the air. Saturday was spent cuddling on the couch with the hubby and the evening was spent celebrating my sister-in-law's 21st birthday. And Sunday was a work day.

Better Than Naked was at the Silverlake Art Craft & Vintage Fair on Sunday, at the new and improved "new" location (actually, it's the previous location). I must admit that I really liked this new location a lot better. Because it's a smaller parking lot, the set-up is more uniform and flows through all the booths. The vendors are still ever-changing, but there were a few familiar faces. At our own booth, we were offering up some fashion-tabulous prices and finds in both vintage and handmade!
- skirts were being offered for only $5! All dresses were only $10 - and came with a FREE belt!

One gal was smart enough to pick out a hot pink 100% snakeskin belt to go with her adorable gray, pink and black dress. We were also offering up small clutches at only $5 and wallets starting at $2! And, of course, we had Mystery Bags for the kids.

One fashionista walked out with a Burgundy Pair of Leather Boots for only $12, while another took advantage of the unique and beautiful pair of Etienne Aigner vintage boots that were almost NEW condition!

Our handmade section was given to Katelyn, a fellow handmade fanatic who was offering up fun and frilly crochet scarves starting at only $20!

It was a lot of fun watching the girls practically run up to our booth to try the different styles on. The greens and yellows were the most popular, and Katelyn is working hard this week to fulfill her special requests.

One of my personal favorites, as well as shoppers, was the vintage, mint condition, mink stole. Not only is it soft to the touch and beautiful in color, the inside is lined with satin and features the previous owner's name. Oh, I can only imagine how beautiful she must have looked and felt when she wore this gorgeous piece out. It is available for $150!

After a great weekend, we are going to bust our behinds in the earlier week to post as many handmade and vintage items that we can so that we can enjoy the company of our family and friends during this Thanksgiving holiday.
