Well ladies and a few gentleman, Vintage Junky is open for business! My tiny little booth in The Roost is jammed full of stuff! We crammed my mom's SUV full. And, unbelievably, I only came home with one small box of stuff that didn't fit. We worked for a few hours to get everything just right. I actually made sales of a few cuckoo clocks while I was unpacking. Everything went pretty smoothly, with the exception of a few things... I broke another vendor's vase (I paid for it) a light bulb fell out and smashed on the floor, and Mr. Hughes had a swell time trying to get the shelf out of the top of the closet the booth is in. We came prepared with a plan and a toolbox and everything priced beforehand. So, without further ado... here is my booth!
I told you it was tiny.... and FULL! Mr. Hughes made my sign.
My little display cabinet has already sold :( I really loved it! Oh well, I can't keep it all...
This little medicine cabinet sold as well... this is something that I got a lot of response from when I made one for our laundry room, so I decided to make one for the booth. And, in the background, the Jacqueline (named after my mom) 3 drawer chest that I worked on... I love the way it turned out. I wish I had a photo of it by itself.
A Louis (the Lulu!) chair with some stenciled pillows
The booth needed some light so I covered a naked lampshade with a coffee sack slipcover shade.
Some vintage flower pins
This is one of the items that I have been wanting to do for awhile. Mr. Hughes helped, of course. The little shield shapes have pegs that are made out of vintage organ pulls. I love them! I need to make some for myself and for my etsy shop. Oh, and the background is blown up pages from a 1920s French Dry Goods Catalog.
These candles make the booth smell so yummy and they are wrapped in reproduction vintage French candle labels.
I love top hats and they made the perfect display for my new screen printed towels. I am glad that the screen I had burned about 6 months ago is finally being used!
A few of the vintage items in the booth
We found a couple of concession trays from a ballpark that make excellent shelves.
And a cute little magnet board with button magnets
And, here I am afterwards... sweaty, tired, and very excited!
That was Friday. Then, on Saturday I went to meet with a lady who owns a shop in downtown Franklin and she is going to carry some of my pillows and bags! So, a very exciting weekend for me.
I want to thank you all for all your support of this blog and my little shop dreams. So, to thank you, I would like to do a little giveaway this week...
This vintage grain sack bag with a silhouette of a lady and a vintage flower pin
A cuckoo clock flour sack towel
A little notebook covered with vintage calling cards
All of these items will be added to my etsy shop very soon, but I thought a chance to win them before they are listed would be fun!
