Open for Business at The Roost + a Giveaway


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
and


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!

So, here is what you can do to win

  1. Leave me a comment on this post
  2. If you are a follower, be sure you let me know and I will enter you twice.
  3. If you want to blog or tweet about it, let me know about that too and I will add you an extra time for each one.
I will draw the winner this Sunday and announce the winner on Monday

 Oh, and if you want to visit my booth at The Roost, here is the address

7307 Nolensville Road
Nolensville, Tennessee 37135

  21. I am one of the lucky store owners of The Roost that is honored to have Mrs. Hughes as a new resident ! She seems like an ole pro at this to us. The pictures are good but it is oh so much better in person-especially that smell she was referring to. Her prices are fab and her sales are already flying out the door...but after seeing the photos no one can be surprised.
    Out little town just became a bit more special with Michelle as our newest addition-please do try and come and see for yourself. If you do not live in Tennessee...ROAD TRIP !
    Thanks for coming home to THE ROOST Michelle :>)
