Urban Vintage once again proved to be an awesome vintage market! I had a really fun time planning out my booth design, using an old door from our 1950’s home propped up on saw horses as a center “island” for display. It made for a good flow and easy access to all the small bits as well as larger furniture for sale. Vistaprint and a graphic design friend made my Posy sign dreams come true with an amazing vertical number that was easy to assemble on site, shares my social media details and just gives some nice “oompf” to my spot!
This was my favorite collection of Posy goods to date. Midcentury furniture, industrial metal file cabinets, pretty glass, picnic baskets, embroidered pillow cases, a Pendleton blanket, amazing lamps, enamelware and fun brass figurines. Basically, if I was shopping for myself, I would’ve been in hog heaven! It’s definitely helped to focus my buying and stick to those pieces that really bring me joy.
On top of all this, I met some really neat folks. One guy bought a yellow metal recipe box because it was just like his mom’s growing up. He even texted his out-of-state siblings to confirm it was the same one. I was stoked to help him score some mom brownie points! Another guy, a metal and leather worker in Raleigh, bought the serape blanket for his truck and one family bought the Corelle Corningware dishes, walked around the market and came back to buy the bowls too! Talented friend, Staci, of Juniper Bay Metals bought a light green metal side table for her studio which makes me all kinds of happy! I always love to see what will draw people in and which items they’ll be smitten by! Talented local photographer, Kristen Randall, took these awesome pics (entire Flickr album here).
And I took these pics of my space:
A huge thanks to the lovely Handmaidens who have a real knack for putting on an amazing vintage market and making it equally fun for vendors and shoppers alike!
