Valley Vintage Market

Here they are...The pictures of my booth at Valley Vintage Market.  With windows in the back of the spaces it made it hard for me to get great pictures but heck at least I took some.  :) least I took some of MY space...I have know idea why I didn't take any of the others....
I guess I was just to darn excited!!  This was my first time at a vintage market.
It was so much fun and I met some wonderful people!

Anyway ...What do you think of my gray dresser?  I used Miss Mustard Seed's milk paint on it, but then added some rain water and grey over that. I used a chip brush and just kind of crisis crossed the paint as I went.  

I heavily distressed it and then added the numbers from The Graphics Fairy using the Mod Podge transfer method...You can find my tutorial here.

I had a little bit of everything there...I will give you more detailed tutorials for some of things later this month.

I sold this lovey vintage typewriter to the nicest people on the first day...(I'm always the saddest to see my typewriters go...but I know this one went to a good home)!

The cutest young couple wanted my burlap lampshade so bad, that I told them if the came back late Saturday and the lamp hadn't sold yet I would just sell them the shade...
Time to make a new shade!  :)

My jewelry went well too....Which is a good thing, because I really do enjoy making them!!!
My spoon and hardware jewelry were displayed on my dress form...
(She may not be the most glamours thing, but I got her free on the side of the road and she's become a true friend....The kind that is always willing to help out).

My domino pendants were displayed in a variety of ways.  :)

My Drexel side table was my first piece of furniture to sell...not a surprise...It was lovely!!
Did you notice the hat rack/jewelry holders on the back wall?  Bryan and I scored a whole bunch of faucet handles in a box at an estate sale...The oar or (hee-hee)  is it a paddle? I also turned into a hat rack...I wish there was a better way to display it...I think it got lost back there.

I will do a tutorial on my burlap bags and pumpkins later this week.

Well....I had a blast both getting ready for and doing the market!!
They do have a web site; Valley Vintage Market  so check it out!!
The next sale is October 18 and 19...I plan on being there.  :0
