vintage halloween bootique - this friday!

I hear that Martha {Vintage Trifles} moves everything out of her house and transforms it into a vintage BOOtique. I cannot wait to check this out. She has been posting teaser pics on her blog and I've been wanting to share some with you here (all pictures are from her blog). Today is the first dreary day of fall and my focus has turned to my house and the lack of fall decor! Time to go shopping...

Pixie sighting!
Apothecary must haves...
whimsy... treats only, no tricks!

September 30, 5-8 pm, $5.00 Early Moonlight Buying
October 1, 9 am-3 pm Free Admission

display junkie. portland store fixtures

As you know, I have a bit of a thing for display pieces. I push myself for more "less than conventional" ways to display my items. I get more inquiries as my display evolves - "is your mannequin for sale?". No. But let me tell you where I got it - I have been singing the praises of Portland Store Fixtures this past month as my display has taken shape.

Can I give you a hand with anything?
I think I need to create a variation on my "vintage junkie" bracelet - "DISPLAY JUNKIE". You know who you are.

If you haven't been to Portland Store Fixtures on SE 2nd and Main (think OMSI area), then let me show you what you are missing. Portland Store Fixtures carries new items, anything you need for packaging, in addition to a fantastic selection of used displays. Be prepared to scavenge a bit <-- I think this is the best part - there are 2 warehouses full of stuff, from hangers to large display furniture, organized into categories.

I. want. the. pink. one.

Choices. Choices.

I call him tie man. I suspect he did not come from nordstrom this way.
Last but not least, I walked out with a great vintage (teeny waist) mannequin and 2 stands.


booth comes together.

A super quickie follow up to the previous post - I am so thrilled with how my booth set up! This garden setting was so pretty and cooperative on Friday. The next show for me will be Ruffles and Rust - I need to figure out how to pretty up the top of that canopy frame - I can't use the cover at the show, but the frame is allowed.

I am notorious for purchasing from booths around me - I'll share some of those in the next day or two. And yes I bought a display item!


A Vintage Flea Market at Deepwood

I didn't mean to go missing for so long! I'm coming back after a vacation with no internet (more on that later) and the first week of school (which seems like a blur), to let you know about a vintage market this weekend that you don't want to miss. The spot - Deepwood Estate English Gardens, the weather - cooperating, the vendors - how can you miss this?
