One of my favorite things about Spring and Summer is garden time! There’s nothing like digging in the dirt, watching veggies grow, and being able to go outside and pluck something fresh to eat! I have 2 raised bed veggie gardens at my house and my mom has several at the cottage.
Lost & Found
Well, I had the opportunity to get a larger space at Lost & Found here in GR so I decided to try it out. Besides the shelf space I have at this great shop this is the first time I’ve ever rented a larger booth space. I love this shop because it’s not your typical antique mall with booths just crammed full of stuff. The store is more like styled rooms and seems like a good fit.
Anatomy of a Show Part 4
So the truck thing was a little crazy, but our booth turned out pretty great! We got tons of compliments and lots of folks telling us our booth was their favorite which was such a nice thing to hear! One of them even said if she had a ribbon she’d give it to us! Thanks to all of our great customers at this show! Below are just a few pics of our booth.
Anatomy of a Show Part 3- Ode to Mr. Truck.
Wow, what a week. Feels great to finally be back home! I thought I would have time to post pics during the show but I was too exhausted at the end of the day. We set up Thurs which meant 9 hours of unloading the truck and merchandising our store on the road. Speaking of the truck, Mr. Truck was a little cranky on the trip. We went out to leave for opening day and it wouldn’t start. I called a cab, then a super duper nice couple from Chic Unique let us hitch a ride with them. Then we hitched a ride back to the hotel with Emma Lou Vintage who were gracious enough to offer us a ride back to the show in the morning. Then, Vintage Chic gave us a ride to our truck at the shop. We are so thankful to have been surrounded by super nice and helpful folks. We can’t thank them enough for helping us out!
Anatomy of a Show Part 2
Well, we’re all packed up and ready to roll out tomorrow for The Vintage Marketplace this weekend in Springfield, OH within the Springfield Antique Show! Just a couple things to get together like directions and snacks! Even we can hardly believe how much stuff we fit in this truck!!!
Here are a few newly available artgoodies designs! My classic red bike is available for a limited time in this great turquoisey aqua blue! Plus my swan towel is back this summer in 100% certified organic cotton AND artgoodies first and only 2 color ice cream tea towel is back by popular demand! It’s inspired by my summertime favorite, Boonie Doon’s mint green ice cream! All 3 are available here now!
Anatomy of a Show Part I
It’s almost here! The Vintage Marketplace inside the Springfield Antique show is comin up quick! This May 18-20th in Springfield, OH. Myself and Lisa B will have a fantastic booth filled to the brim with vintage wonders and vintage inspired handmade goods! Below are the beginnings of what’s headed to the show. This unorganized mess is a little embarrassing but I can’t wait to merchandise it all into a beautiful vintage shop! I sure hope we can fit all this in the truck!!! This is just my half, aahhahaa! Lots of great larger pieces and tons of smaller vintage goodies for you! Shop the early bird time on Friday and get first dibs on all the treasures! Stay tuned for more pics as we load up the truck and migrate to Ohio!
color of the Month-Blue Review
Color of the month comin at ya early this month! I love all this aqua blue business! My collection seems to be expanding beyond the little corner shelves in my kitchen nook. As usual, some items in my vignette and table setting are for sale here and the others will squeeze back into my little shelves.
