To Market To Market

I'm so excited...a week from Saturday I get to be in my very first vintage market! I have been dreaming and planning non-stop for how my booth will look and I think it will be so amazing! I've definitely been doing a lot of buying lately between the store and the market, but I think I'm all set.

The idea of having my own booth is so exciting to me because it will be a very specific look. I've had in my head for a long time what a small space that was all mine would be like and it's so incredible that that will finally become a reality. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love selling at The Cottage, I just think a small space like an outdoor booth that is all mine will have a very different look and feel to it than selling in a large space with other vendors.

One problem I've run into is that I really need a 10x10 white pop-up tent for shade (like you see at cookouts/tailgates or...vintage shows). So if anyone is local and happens to have one I could borrow, drop me a line!

The chunky sugar bowl in these photos is just one of many ironstone pieces I'll bring to the market. For some reason this particular little pot really captured my heart. It's odd to me, of all the pieces I sell, which ones turn out to be hard to let go of. At least I got to put some pretty white hydrangeas in it before it went to a new home : )

For those of you who are local, join me and around 25 other fabulous vintage/handmade vendors for the first ever...
