I TRAVEL ALL AROUND THE SOUTH LOOKING FOR THOSE REMAINING PIECES OF THE GENTLE SOUTH OF A BY-GONE ERA. A TIME WHEN "PORCH SETTING" WAS A SOCIAL EVENT AS WELL AS ART FORM. GLIDERS,CAST IRON PATIO FURNITURE,GLASS TOP TABLE&CHAIRS,CHAISE LOUNGERS AND THE LIKE THAT BE-SPEAK OF THAT "TIME WHEN....."
To my dismay, I only get to do a show at the beautifully appointed WATERCOLOR Community once a year.
The third Saturday in March is always circled far in advance of this event. Although not really "Florida Weather" just yet, it is a far cry from the chilly conditions in the Metro Atlanta region.
The ladies of MONARK EVENTS have everything planned out and in place when we show up. At this show I do not even have to worry with a tent, table, or chair! They have all that already in place with plenty of extra room in the bargain.
As I have gotten older, I have cut back on the number of out of town trips that I make for show. But, if I could do a show at Watercolor once a month, I would be there, and probably the first one in line! It is just that good.
The customers that I have met there are unlike most other shows. These people know that they can afford my pieces and do not play games like those who just wished they could.
It is either buy or not buy, and either way, they are very complimentary and I have been thanked often for coming to them and giving them a chance to buy unusual items without them having to travel to look.
It takes a little getting used to; having people thanking you for taking their money, but I have managed to take care of it. Google: WATERCOLOR, FL. for a truly relaxing vacation spot. It may be a little pricy, but you will get what you pay for--you can thank me later.
SEASIDE is a coastal community along County Road 30-A in Walton County, Florida. It is probably midway between Destin and PCB.
Twice a year they hold what is referred to as a "yard sale", but let me tell you, it is like no other you have ever seen.
The SALE only last from 8am until 1pm. That's right, just 5 hours to do your business. And what a business I do.
The pictures of the crowds that you see here are constant from before the 8am start until I have to ASK customers to stop buying. If you don't stop at the cut off time, you will not be allowed back to the next sale.
If you like making money, then going to some really good restaurants as a reward for your hard work, this is the place.
Send me a message sometimes if you would like to know about this exciting place in the sun, sand, and surf!
