Thrifting Thursdays – Spring Inspiration

by

One of my goals for Posy in 2017 is to have weekly additions to our inventory, so I’ve begun a new tradition of Thrifting Thursdays. It’s been really fun so far! For one, it’s taken some of the pressure off of my bigger buying trips to find those wish list items because rather than banking all my finds on a few weekends of the year, I’m out there ever week on the hunt for possibilities!  It also helps me stay more seasonally focused. Most of my finds so far have been full of spring inspiration, with cheery colors, creative planters and funky florals.  Another good excuse for constantly working on our inventory is that I can more readily apply for markets, rather than having to wait while I build up vintage stock. And last, but not least, is that I can really fill the shop with pieces that I love and am excited about and continue to offer Posy customers fresh finds! So, cheers to Thrifting Thursdays and the vintage hunt!

New year, “new” vintage finds

by

I love the start of a new year! Fresh possibilities abound. Of course, now that I’m a shop keeper a new year takes on a bit of a different focus. As I was wrapping up the busy holiday season of 2016, I was already thinking ahead to what I want 2017 to look like for Posy. My main goal is to have much more “new”vintage finds to offer, which means more buying trips, more weekly thrifting and spending my mornings posting, posting, posting new goods into the Etsy shop. I’m hoping to continue offering vintage and some embroidered handmade items through Deco’s home store and, of course, will be participating in local markets (another goal is to broaden my markets to be more regional…time to spread those vintage wings!).  I also would like to better keep folks in the loop of my finds and where Posy will be selling. “Communication is key,” as they say!  To those of you who have already been along for the ride, thank you and to those of you who are just coming on board, I’m honored to have you be a part of Posy’s world. Cheers to all that’s ahead!

September Pop Up Raleigh

by

Posy had a great market at September’s PopUp Raleigh in the Trophy Brewing spot on Maywood!  It was hot as all get out, but luckily, the super friendly Jay, of Jay’s Italian Ice was serving up some delicious mango, lemon, blueberry and cherry delights! I got to talk with lovely fellow vendors, like Raana from Zartiques and Lauren from Lauren Sumner Pottery. One of my favorite moments was when Annette from Wendell Antiques shared some history on the Western prints I ook a train in the 1940’s from California back to North Carolina. Really cool!

Up next, a special Patchwork Market this Saturday, October 8, at the Durham Armory from 12-5pm. Tons of great vendors, music, food and a giveaway tote for the first 100 folks through the door! Hope to see you there.
