St Louis Vintage Market Days just happened in Chesterfield, MO. I normally do a follow up post with pictures from vendor booths but this time it is going to be a little different.
I will be following up with a post about being a vendor and how to make the show successful for you, the market as a whole, and how to use it as a business marketing plan. This, is not that post.
Until then, I want to use this post as a Thank you.
A thank you to the Vintage Market Days team, especially Chanda and her family. Chanda is one of my very best friends and I was at her first show in St. Louis. Chanda and her family work SO incredibly hard. As an event planner, I appreciate this on every level. I am telling you, with over 20,000 people to manage this event went so so so smoothly. I think all of our jaws hit the floor when we saw the line for Friday. That has never happened, not like that. That was crazy awesome!
I am happy to say that at each market I have grown my booth size and sponsorship level, not only because it benefits me but it benefits the event itself too. When you walk away from an event and almost every vendor there had close to or their best show ever, that tells you how lucky you are to be a part of that event. This goes to show how hard these people worked to give us an event of this caliber.
A huge thank you to the vendors. The vendors are amazing. I love when they come to say Hi. I try to walk around but its hard to get away from my booth. But, the friendships I have made from this event are amazing. I wish we had a VMD reunion once a month! I love seeing all the familiar faces. The vendors under the pavilion are top notch neighbors too!
A huge thank you to YOU. So many people came out to introduce themselves and to say Hi. Every single time someone said “I follow you on facebook”, I just wanted to jump up and down. Just talking with everyone is so encouraging and motivating on so many levels. I can not tell you how important this is to me and to meet you guys.
You can find me under the pavilion in April and I hope we get to see each other again!
