Finds From The Flea Market
Hi well I just went to "LOOK:" today at the Santa Monica Flea Market. I love getting lost in all the history and delicious treasures one can observe from afar...I think I got too close today and could not resist some items that I HAD to HAVE. Those of you who have the "BUG" understand my needs...I first started with the glass jars with the numbers. I thought...

    Just in case you’re curious — your gorgeous inlaid wood box was made in Sorrento, Italy… that’s the Sorrento coastline with Mt. Vesuvius in the background. That wonderful little town is known for it’s inlaid woodwork. We were there this spring with Bob and Dawn (right before your big event in Venice)… here are a few photos of the town as well as a craftsman making pieces like your little box. :) Enjoy your treasures!!—last-day-on-the-sea/

    Just engaged and now I know there’s no better way to get through a heat wave than thinking about planning my own wedding…and this giveaway! True bliss!!

  14. sonia reply

    Pick Me! This would mean so much! My friend and I are young faces to the event planning industry. Trying to launch a business out of our passion comes with challenges. So much so, we could only afford to purchase one ticket for your event. The second ticket would mean we could both go. Thank you for this opporunity!

  15. Thelma Gipson reply

    I am in Austin Tx, and starting my own business in event planning with a partner we both want to go to the event, but not sure we can both make it, it would be wonderful if we win a ticket.

  16. Katy Carrier reply

    Katy Carrier! So excited about your event! :)

  17. Open Ended Blog reply

    Oh, this is very exciting! I hope its me. I’ve seen so much promotion for this event that I daydream just seeing myself there with so many great people. My fingers are crossed!!!

  18. Linda L reply

    I am a huge admirer of your work and there was no doubt in my mind that I had to go. Now all that’s left to do is figure out how to get my 7 week old to take a bottle!

  19. Jennifer Matheny reply

    PICK ME! On my goodness! I have been trying to get started in the wedding planning industry. I think going to this event will really help me network and get my foot in the door. Going to this would be the beginning of a dream for me! I am so excited! Congrats to whoever wins!

  20. cindy reply

    Thank you for an amazing giveaway! I have been really contemplating on attending and hope to win… if so it’d be the perfect end to my birthday weekend in LA! Hope to experience the most ridiculous event ever!!!

    It’s perfect – The Most Ridiculous Giveaway for the Most Ridiculous Wedding Event Ever! I would love to be selected – I am beginning the planning stages for our wedding and I would love to attend this amazing event. I definitely am lost with all of the options out there. Getting great advice from leaders in the industry would help me get more comfortable with the planning process and help me find how to make Jason and my vision a reality.

    Thank you for the opportunity!

  22. Sarah Walpert reply

    I would be honored to be considered for a ticket to this event. I am a recent college graduate who is absolutely inspired by you and your company. What a wonderful opportunity it would be to learn from a true master!

    Mindy, it’s been a long time since we met but you continue to inspire me. It would be an honor to be a part of this once-in-a-lifetime event. Thanks for being so giving and willing to share.

  24. Ana Vick reply

    If I won I’d be more than thrilled to be at the event but due to the current economy I cannot afford to purchase a ticket. I’d love to be there to be furthered inspired by your work and that of the other speakers. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting you at your book signing at the Wedding Salon and I look forward to hopefully seeing you again!

  28. Elisheva Basseri reply

    I’d be honored to win a seat at the party! After years of building the foundation, I took my wedding planning business full time earlier this year and couldn’t be happier to be in this amazing industry…Best of luck to all my new & aspiring entreprenuer sisters out there – if you offer a quality service and put in the time, you will be a success!

  42. lisa reply

    I first saw your announcement for your ‘upcoming event’ as you were taking your vacation with your girlfriends. Here I was keeping my eyes posted to the blog everyday and when you listed the bootcamp, I commented and am determined to go.
    I have been planning weddings for four years now and have been contemplating to finally have the courage to leave my full time job and chase after this crazy dream or to be content with letting it fill my creative side, part time.
    So if I get the ticket? I am making a mad dash for the dream.
    If not, well…I am going to be the optimist and wait and see. :)

  43. Jessica Kaufman reply

    I hope I’m not too late to be put in the drawing! This sounds like an amazing day, a dream for sure!

  44. Dannielle-The Aspiring Event Planner reply

    Ahhhh…I am so nervous to see who will be the lucky winner today!!!!!

  45. Samantha reply

    What an amazing event + venue! What a treat to attend.

    Thank you for this contest, Mindy. I would absolutely LOVE to attend!
