Ladies Night Out in Elmhurst

Returning to the Wilder Mansion is always a joy.

It was a gorgeous Wednesday afternoon, and I got the same table as the Holiday Market last year.

Soon I was set up.

The ample set up time meant I got to peruse the other booths in mid-dress after a delicious lunch.

This undressed booth is a piece of art without the gorgeous Jewels Botanica it later displayed.

Roz Long of RGL Marketing for the Arts does a fantastic job curating a wide variety of jewelers into the show.

I was inspired by their skills.

There was even time for a vendor to snap a photo of me.

Fashion was also well-represented, with hats, convertible skirts, scarves and a variety of other accessories.

Other rooms had mini-manicures, massages, sweet samplings and wine.

Ladies soon started walking through the doors, perusing all the wares.

I’m thrilled one of my puzzle pieces walked away, as did a sculptural pendant.

Some ladies dressed to the nines.

Since Tannins was conveniently located next door, I got to sample their lovely red.

I sold a ladybug (hooray!), and got shoppers thinking about commissioned ornaments.

Angel and I look forward to returning here in November for the Wilder Mansion Holiday market.
