Urban Vintage 2016

by

Posy had a terrific time at the August Urban Vintage market in the beautiful new event space, Traine, over at Seaboard Station. It was so fun to be in my own neighborhood and see lots of familiar faces! Rick, manager of one of my favorite lunch spots, Seaboard Cafe in Logan’s Nursery, even stopped by to show off the vintage horse art he bought…excited about the die cut technique and old nails on the frame. Urban Vintage is full of awesome vendors who know their stuff and love it! My first two sales were from other vendors, including the lovely Jenni, of SuzAnna’s Antiques.  Zartiques, was our neighbor, for the 3rd time and it was great, as always, to talk shop with Raana who, like Posy, aims to make vintage accessible and fun.  Posy has been stocking up on vintage at these various yard sales and buying trips all summer, and it was awesome to finally get to show it off. This was our best collection yet!  The remaining pieces were delivered to our booth at the Cheshire Cat the following day. Next up, we’ll be heading to PopUp Raleigh  September 17 (12-5pm) at Trophy Brewing. But for now, we’ll just bask in the good vibes of a successful market!

Posy’s booth! Full of bright yellows and colorful finds. Our toolbox collection was a popular spot.

Raana, owner of Zartiques, always brings these must-have pieces that fly out of her booth quick! She took the accessible bit a step further and actually delivered this metal cabinet to help a customer out.  It’s inspiring!
