She and her favorite rancher (ie husband) were in Pueblo, CO for a quilting show. Their booth benefits from combining our quilt patterns with wonders from their antique business. (See D&J Country Antiques)
The next weekend I was at a quilt show in Mobile, AL (and very thankful for my favorite driver, problem solver, mover/hauler, The Dietz.) The southern booth utilizes antiques, too – the ones usually found in various corners of our house.
PS – BOTH sisters use old ironing boards!
There are some notable differences. Whereas the Colorado sister was trying to sell her antique quilts
And yet, some things are very much the same. Both booths have the same patterns and the same samples and the same demonstrations.
However, the Colorado show sold more of those patterns than we did down south. The Colorado Sister thinks that the reason may have been the real cowboy hat in her booth …
I wasn’t so sure about that. After all, I had help in my booth, too.
But, then again, she could be right.
It makes me wonder … what can we do to make our booth even more inviting? What makes a quilt show booth appealing to you?
