antique mall

by

I’m very excited to share that Posy will be renting a spot at the eclectic antique mall, Cheshire Cat Gallery, in downtown Raleigh’s Cameron Village starting February 1! It’s such a relief to have a place to share all the great furniture and big vintage items currently taking up residence in my attic. It’s my own little spot in the vintage world and one that I hope will get more eyes on Posy. I get to paint and decorate however I’d like…which means I’ve been Pinterest crazy of late! One wall, one peg board and some definite elbow grease needed to get this spot shining! (This is a pic of my spot with its current resident. Keep on the lookout for Posy’s transformation!!)

new year

As much as I’ve enjoyed a nice long break over the holidays and some quality time with my family, I’m getting more excited as the days go by to get back into the swing of Posy things! I’ve got a great stash in the attic of vintage from estate sales, auction and other treasure hunts to post in the Etsy shop or ready for market. We’re talking midcentury metal and wood school desk, lamps, vaseline glass, an amazing turquoise midcentury bookshelf, more linens, record albums, a vanity stool, child’s rocker, and so much more! I never thought I’d be the kind of gal to miss her office…but when it looks like this, I do!

holiday markets

by

I’m so excited (and anxious…but in a good way!) to be participating in two holiday markets this weekend!

First up is the Carrboro ArtsCenter’s annual Elf Market happening Saturday, December 5, 11am-5pm.  There are a ton of great handmade goods to buy as well as fun drinks, food and kid-friendly fun!

Then it’s on to Durham Sunday, December 6, for the Patchwork Mini Market happening at the Durham Armory from 12-5pm.  Morgan Grimm has put together a spectacular variety (75+) of handmade and vintage vendors.  Also, Walltown Children’s Theatre is an amazing non-profit organization right in Durham, that uses theater, dance, and music to inspire positive and social change in children. They will be selling raffle tickets for items that have generously been donated by Patchwork Vendors at the upcoming Holiday Market, including a Posy felt ball garland!

Really honored and excited to have been selected as one of Bezar‘s holiday pop-up shops this week! They’ve chosen a handful of Posy stockings as well as our colorful felt ball garlands to be a part of their funky holiday offerings.  Not only are folks supporting my little neck of the creative woods, but by shopping at Bezar, you’re boosting a company that believes in small business, creative makers, unique products and special vs. big box. All kinds of happy, warm feelings abound!

blue ridge parkway

by

This summer I went on my first vintage-buying trip on the Blue Ridge Parkway and scooped up a car load of gems.  It’s a 3-day miles long adventure along historic US 21. If you’re into picking/thrifting/vintage/bbq, I highly recommend going!

My Nana made one awesome wingwoman…she’s got a great eye and knew what some things were that I didn’t. Of course, she got bitten by the good deal bug and I eventually had to ask (i.e. beg!) her to stop for lunch.

This trip was a dream…getting to hunt down awesome vintage to share through Posy. I hope it’s one of many. I’m ready to roll down the windows, turn up the tunes and take that left off the dirt road and see what I can find!
