Well one thing it can be called is lots of fun!
We were invited to participate in one that happened Saturday, Aug. 13...it was a first for us...and we had so much fun...found some wonderful "stuff" to buy and also sold lots of "stuff"...the bestest of both worlds :)
The venue was perfect....a wonderful building with lots of old brick walls, original stenciling around the ceiling, great architectural elements, the perfect atmosphere for a sale of vintage items....
The other sellers were great, somehow our items blended together and created an irresistible vintage collage....at least irresistible to me....I found so much I needed to buy! Even better we turned out to be a very compatible group, lots of talking and laughing....fun!
The customers were super...several were planning Vintage themed weddings (hint...this seems to be the latest trend for weddings) and helping them find the perfect items to enhance their weddings and later their new homes was ....let me say it again....fun!
Thought I would share with you photos of the shops setup for the sale and links to each of them...this way you can be part of the fun too!
Entering the building the morning of the sale this is the sight that greeted everyone...
Who can resist a cabinet loaded with chemistry glass? I couldn't...just sayin!
"Found" is a company that rents and sells vintage items, specializing in props for weddings...click on the name and check them out...you will love what you find.
They are the owners of the amazing location where the sale was held...below are a couple more photos of the items they had in this sale.
By the end of the 4 hour sale they were pretty much cleaned out...
We first heard about the sale when Danni of "OhHelloFriend" sent us a message asking if we would be interested in participating....It took us about 5 minutes to decide...YES!
This is a photo of part of her display, sigh....so much great "stuff"....
Tucked in another corner of the front room was "Ruche" with a table full of wonderful items and racks of vintage clothing...(vintage clothing was one of the "hot" items at this sale!)
When you look at the photo of the view that greeted the customers you can peek through the door at the back and look into the other room where 6 more sellers were located....
She describes her style this way..."I love the patterns, shapes and textures of the mid-century era....I love discovering little pieces of history and using them to transform my space. I am also addicted to bright colors, especially coral and mint."
A great selection of vintage clothing, wonderful handmade pillows and to quote them " one-of-a-kind items, other items are handmade or repurposed from vintage elements".
You can see by her photo the great selection of vintage clothes, handbags and home decor she carries...also check out her blog for info on the B&M shop she is opening....and more of her unique items she collects and sells, Salvage Life Blog
