Vintage Market

On Sat, I had the pleasure of participating in a Vintage Market, hosted by Vintage 30 and Corner Shop Decor.  What a fun...although very hot (thank you breeze!) day!

The other vendors had so many lovely vintage pieces...furniture in its original state, furniture revamped with chalk, milk or mineral paints, dishes, items that would have been at home originally in a garage...you name it!  But all, I'm sure, could tell quite a story!

One of the most talked about pieces...at least from my perch...had to be this 60's-70's era hamper in gold with a star on the front.  You know the type I mean...everyone's parents or grandparents or aunt had one of these hampers.  I heard many tales on Sat about this hamper...until it was scooped up by a happy customer! 

 

 "The" hamper of many tales!

I have often re-created jewelry out of vintage jewelry.  I like to take old clip on style earrings and create bracelets...

Or for some fridge fun...I can create fridge magnets from vintage earrings or brooches.  Yes!...even your fridge should look lovely!

I had not created "vintage" pieces in a while, so was very happy to have this market to get me "back" to it!

If you get an opportunity...drop by a vintage market.  The unique pieces, colours, textures...all will enthrall you!  Don't worry about missing this one...find another...and I know @vintage30 and @cornershopdecor plan on doing more of these markets...so keep an ear out!  Fun just to walk down memory lane...although I'm sure something will speak to you and want to continue its tale at your home!
