Thus begins the last few days when I burn the midnight oil. The house quiets down, the needs of everyone are met, and I can focus on the last bit of crafting, pricing, and gathering into piles all that I need to put on the show. The last space is filled, the to-do lists are long, each day is marked out. I love this part. When you're so close and you just keep checking things off the list like clockwork. Shelly and I are very excited about all of our vendors, and especially welcome all the new faces. It's going to be a good one, see you there!

My name is Shelly, I am a wife and a mother of two boys, ages 11 and 14. I love all things vintage.. My good friend Sharon and I decided to start something new seven years ago....and that's how the Girlfriends Holiday Market got started......
and I'm Sharon, also married and a mom to four "kids". We have two boys and two girls and a new daughter-in-law who warms my heart when she calls me mom. The kids are 29, 27, 25, 23, and 19!! We also added two lab puppies, 3 months old.
With this crew I've learned the art of multi-tasking, putting on really good birthday parties, and most recently a wedding. Like Shelly, I love old stuff too. The Girlfriends Market is my most favorite event so far!
