Chairs and other stuff

If you are a junker like I am, you usually are a collector. Your collection will evolve and change over the years. I've had phases of certain things, but then I've sold them. I used to love pink pottery and would buy it if the price is right, but I've moved on from that. However there are some things that I still love and collect and have been for years. One of them is chairs. I know that's a tough thing to collect, but alas that is my fate. It just means I have a really full garage, and I'm constantly rotating them in and out of my house. I love chairs! I also love vintage children's chairs.

Lucky for you I've decided to put my chair collection to good use. Here is a sampling of chairs available to rent at my vintage rental business.

Another thing that I've loved and collected for years is vintage dishes. I love it all...fiesta, pyrex, hull, lusterware, melamac, you name it. I also have a cute vintage syrup dispenser collection and juice glasses like you wouldn't believe.

I personally love going into a home of a collector. You can tell a lot about a person from the items they surround themselves with. What do you like to collect?

Getting ready for Market

Do you love to make things using vintage materials? I do! One of my favorite vintage items to use are wonderful old wooden spools. I use them for cake toppers as well as little inspiration sculptures. I'll be bringing my spool creations.

 I love old books and will be bringing some cool ones to sell.
I love vintage kid chairs. Do you think I should bring some to Bijou?

Have you thought about Christmas yet? Have you made a list? Does it include some vintage items for that special someone? Let me know, I may have just what you are looking for.

Bijou Market

I was excited to find out that I was accepted into the Bijou Market in November. I've never done this show before and I have some awesome vintage goodies to bring to the market. Here's a little preview:

I bought these ties from a woman whose father was a tie salesman for Nordstrom's in the 70's. They are in perfect condition and so very vintage! I'll be selling them for $6-10 each.

A lovely collection of vintage slips bought at a recent estate sale. These beauties will sell for $10 each.
I'll be posting some more items for sale in the next few days and weeks. Lot's of vintage goodies just in time for some awesome Christmas presents.

Mark your calendars: November 16 and 17 in downtown Provo.
