A Peek at the Halloween Trunk Show...

Thanks to all who saved the date and came out to join us at Denver's 5th Annual Halloween Trunk Show! We were blessed with a beautiful day and many smiling Halloween fans. This year we had a handful of collectors fly in from out of state to adopt my one of a kind creations, so that was a treat to connect in person at the show! And of course, it was a pleasure to see so many of my local collectors who have been so very supportive of me over the years. :) For those unable to attend, here is a peek at this fun event, and I welcome you to join us next year! It took me extra long it seemed to set up my booth with all the new products I had this year. So, I only had a few minutes to spare right before the doors opened to snap a few pictures. And, I just realized that I never went out front to snap a shot of our garden vendor, and I wish I had! Obviously, I was a bit frazzled ~ typical!! Nevertheless, enjoy the images I was able to capture. And a big thank you to Leo of Leo's Automotive for offering his squeaky clean garage to us!

It looks absolutely fun! You did great. I missed my flight Friday night to Denver and was unable to make the Trunk Show. :( I plan on going to the Ghoultide and can't wait!

What a wonderful show! Johanna your work is great. I have to admit though very shame faced that in your first photo my eye went to that wonderful orange enamel jug first thing! Like some people in my life I guess I'm here to keep you humble!!!! HAHAHA! Great work.

Johanna Parker said...

Hahaha Len! Yes, we definitely don't want all that Halloween hype to get to my head :) I'm with you too - that orange enamelware pitcher is quite stunning for us orange and black-loving folks...

And thank you Audrey, Donna and Cathy!!
