Ivy St. Market & Trailer

Ivy St. Market was another fun day! The weather was in the high 70's and so pretty. I love meeting people and seeing return customers! My 10 year old granddaughter Hailey came to spend the day with me and what a great help she was. 
I had so much fun making more clipboards.
Here are a few out of the 14 I made. I made some small ones also.
I made this cute retro valentine garland. Each valentine measures approx. 8 x 11 inches.
Last time I had so many people wanting to buy my dish drainer displays, so this time I had some for sale! You can buy them at Walmart. :)
 I made several more journals & tags but I forgot to get pictures of them.
Tours of the trailer went on all day! 
I love how it even brings in the guys! They love to talk about trailers, restoring them and of course I have to bring up fly fishing and that I love to fish! That keeps them a little longer while the gals shop! LOL! There are so many women now on the lookout for a trailer!
 I will be adding new things for next month! If you are in the area, come on by! It's easy to find the little trailer and the gal (me) wearing an apron and pink cowgirl boots!

I saw those dish drainers at Walmart after your post about them and was tempted to buy one.

Sweet retro clipboards, but I'm flipping over your trailer! My hubby recently found one to fix up, so I gave him the "Sisters on The Fly" book for Christmas. He loved it, even though he is a guy, LOL! Wish I was in CA to visit your sweet trailer & shop!

Cindy said...

Looks like so much fun! I would have been going over every little thing in your trailer. I love it and want one too!

wendy said...

Those clip boards are would you even be able to decide which one you'd want when they are all so cute!!

I love your trailor too.

I just adore your trailer. It always makes me happy to see it. I have a salt and pepper shaker in the shape a car pulling a trailer. I've never used it. But, I would love to send it to you, if you don't already have a set of your own :)
If you would like it, let me know. Send me an email and I'll get it out to you :)

Looks like you had a great time and I bet your customers did too! Love the trailer and those curtains are adorable!

Sounds like you had a great time-enjoy! Love the hankie garland:@)

Kristina said...

Those clip boards are so cute! A few of my kids would loooove them. Do you decoupage them?

Crickit said...

I love your trailer and all of the fun and cute vintage things inside!

The clipboards are adorable too!

I'm so glad that you had such a fun and successful day. I am really enjoying your blog as I am a new follower! :)

My goodness you must stay up all night to get all the things you do, done. How nice that you can go to these shows and sell your things and meet lots of nice people.
thank you agian for my order, sent two of the bookmarks to my sister in law, she will love them. Hard for me to give them up, but I was a good girl.
Hugs Nancy Jo

C'est moi Claudette said...

Oh how i WISH I could just pop in one Sat. morning and see you standing there with your pink cowboy boots. I would surprise you and run and give you a great big hug... maybe 3 or 4 big hugs. I would buy all your goodies, but you know I'm a pink and blue girl don't you? I used to be all about red (only outside now) inside my other homes, now not so much as an apple : (
LOVE your ideas and your sweet trailer, you know that. You live so far from me : (

Jacqueline said...

Dear Maryjane,

You make women's hearts sing. Thank you for bringing such joy and happiness to the world of blogging!

You and that little trailer could become a major addiction of mine. The clipboards are creative and fun and inspiring!

Happiness to you!

Brenda said...

Oh Maryjane I would love to visit your shop on wheels! I do not know where I would spend the most time though shopping or visiting the inside of the camper. Love it and yes I am looking for one also!

Connie said...

I guess I will have to say that your blog is my very favorite and I am always surfing the web, looking for unique and wonderful blogs. I am new to blogging and just started my blog a week or so ago. I will be aspiring to make my blog as cool as yours, but that will take some doing. I wish I lived near Ivy Street Market; I would just love to meet you. Please check by blog out at and if you have some suggestions I am wide open for any ideas to do a better job. Thank you, Connie

Amy B. said...

Sure wish I lived closer...your trailer and 'goods' are so cute!! And I super LOVE the idea of using your trailer as part of the set-up! I'm going to try that this fall when we do our one sale of the year!! lol

Mary C. Nasser said...

Wow! Wished I lived in the area!
Looks so fun!
Love your creations and display!!

Wishing you a happy new year and all the best,

Oh I'd love to come to Ivy St. Market too but Kansas is too far away. I love all those retro & vintage images you use. Where do you get the pattern images? I have lots of the others. Your stuff is all very cute!

I wish I lived closer so I could visit your trailer and see all your goodies in person. Your clipboards are such a cute idea!

Tania @ Out Back said...

I love what you have done to those clip boards, they look fantastic!

Wish I had a caravan that cute, you have decorated it just right :)

Kathy said...

Oh how much fun it that. I love your mod of transporation...great display and what an eye catcher. Your goods are as cute as your trailer is. Have a great week. Kathy

Claudia said...

I just love seeing your trailer. Do you have a "Dishdrainer quilt" ? I saw them in a magazine and thought of you. I made one, but my cat thinks it is for her to lay on.

Selena said...

Now where did you find the pin up cowgirl tablecloth and material you have on the windows? Did you create them yourself? I don't want to copy what you have there but I have been searching for a year now trying to find just the right 'look' for my linens and this is purty close. I love what you have done with your trailer SIster! (Yes I finally signed up too ;) I can't wait to get out on the road and actually camp!

Maryjane-The Beehive Cottage said...

Hello Selena!

The tablecloth and napkins are from MODA. I am sure if you Google MODA you will find them. Try eBay too. I bought mine at a Sister on the Fly campout in Idaho about 4 years ago. One of the sisters was selling her set and I grab them up fast!

Good Luck!
