The Vintage Bazaar!
It was a lot of fun! Just a 5 hour event, I still sort of feel as if it were a dream! What a whirl of a weekend! So much vintage goodness. With help from James, we were able to set up on Friday which was awesome. It was the easiest set-up I've had for a show..even got to stick around and calmly merchandise to the Cocteau Twins (which was pretty sweet since I more than often play them when I'm working at home, haha). Libby and Katherine are all around awesome ladies and did such a great job organizing this first-time event. I am very excited to see what they do next!
I don't really know how to recap other than just saying, if you love vintage and you weren't there, why weren't you there? Good finds and good people. I hardly got to shop at all..just standing in my booth, spying around, I could have found a handful of things I would want. I did end up scoring a lovely lace dress from my "across the street" booth neighbor, Karyn of Max and Chloe Vintage. Karyn and I actually use to work together and it was a great surprise to see each other! Neither of us knew that the other was busy selling vintage these days (though it certainly makes sense)! I'll have to get a photo of the dress..
Met new folks and saw other friends as well..Val (another old work pal) of The Nine Stories, I didn't get a photo of her booth, but she had a nice and simple set up and she made her own garment racks! Met a nice little lady called Tess of Tessaboo Vintage. Saw my craft show pal Lisa of Art Goodies / Vintage Goodies and she had such a cute booth. Also met her friend, Lisa of Lisa B's Retro Style, who had her booth behind mine which worked out so good for my set up!
It was a very busy day / weekend (did I mention that the line to get in was around the block??)- so thankful James was able to help me out. I really wanted to do the bazaar with my Mom, but she was very busy preparing for an event of her own that was Monday. It went well and was exciting for her, but she was missed and I know she would have enjoyed the bazaar- next time! And there will be a next time!
p.s. gotta give a shout out to Francesa of 1385 for the lovely turban that I wore!
