Market this Saturday!

May2nd2017

Hello friends and followers! Just a quick note to remind you of the Alberta Dames New and Vintage Market this Saturday, May 6th in Crossfield at the Crossfield Community Centre 10am – 4pm (early birds 9am-10am). I have been working diligently on several projects and I have to say I’m pretty pleased with the offerings I’ve got ready! I haven’t updated Honey B’s website with these new items as I want to unveil them at the show. However, having said that, what I plan to do is post them on the website the morning of Friday, May 5th so that anybody who wants a peak has an opportunity to do so. Please note I will not be accepting pre-sales or placing holds on pieces.

I will also place a post on the blog with photos of those items but you must go to the website for information, pricing and measurements.

Hope you all make the trip out, I think it’s going to be lots of fun and there’s going to be some really great things to see and buy! I believe my booth, Honey B’s at Home, is in the centre of the auditorium on the back wall.

Here’s information on the show once again but don’t hesitate to direct any questions to me! Thankyou! Barb

Thankyou! <3 <3 <3

I want to thank each and every one of my fantastic friends for coming out to the market this weekend! I was overwhelmed with the love and support! Seeing all the familiar faces and knowing that you made the time to stop in and say hello was so heartwarming….thankyou soooo much! It’s so great to be back doing what I love and having you all support me in that. We had a load of fun and great success! A special thanks to all the other vendors who participated and introduced themselves, it’s so great to make new friends with common interests. Here’s a few pictures of the booth we set up. A heartfelt thanks to Eric and Stuart and my loving husband Murray for helping with the set up and take down…I couldn’t have done it without you!

Dining Chair Redeux

Oct29th2015

I found these dining chairs in the summer and have been working on them when I have the time out at the acreage. The nice thing is having the space to work on these projects without having to clean and up and put away every day, I can just leave as is until I next get to them without infringing on any space while we make a mess throughout the house. So I finally got them all finished up after a few months only to have fallen in love with them and trying to think of ways to use them in my home….maybe the craft room? However, with that beautiful white fabric, may be susceptible to dusty hands!  I decided to keep for now and see how the house comes together and if there’s a place for them. If not, they will go up onto the website or be included in a Spring sale. These were tough…lots ‘n lots of staples to pull, gluing and tightening, painting a few layers of cream with antique glazing, then the task of upholstering by myself in a nice heavy linen/cotton french fabric. It was well worth the effort as they’ve come out beautifully.
