Sara Jo’s Haute & Gaudy – The Vendor Love Series

Sara Jo's Haute & Gaudy

It is 90 degrees outside my door in Norman, OK today, yet I’m planning A Touch of Rust Market’s Holiday events, and perusing images of snow-covered fields, and happy shoppers bundled up in coats and sweaters. ( which doesn’t really make if feel any cooler!)  It’s hard to believe, but this will be our sixth Holiday event in Decatur, Tx and our third in Chickasha, OK.  Time does fly!

I am incredibly grateful to all the vendors who helped us get this crazy thing off the ground, and I wanted to share some of their stories. Honestly, I’ve never met such great people before; friendly, enthusiastic, and creative, always willing to help each other out.  These wonderful folks have been great ambassadors for A Touch of Rust Market, and I’m so glad they continue to vend with us! They are the heart and soul of this business, and a big part of why we keep doing what we’re doing.  Ima start these introductions with Sara Jo, of Sara Jo’s Haute & Gaudy Boutique.

It was a hobby that turned in to a full time busi

I travel many weekends out of the month, I lease space from 2 stores, I am online ( and I do Pop Up parties/FUNdraisers.

It takes a village to do all of this! I have provided many opportunities for my family to get mini vacations and jobs for neighborhood kids.  🙂 When you love what you do, you will never work a day in your life!
