We're all trying to make a go at flipping furniture and vintage goods, so we're working together brainstorming ideas and sharing techniques and tips.
One of the gals owns a shop in a small lake village nearby, so a few of us schlepped our wares up there and set up a vintage market in her parking lot.
(visit her facebook page here)
Tons of fun.
Here's some pics I snapped of some of our set-ups...
Aimee of Restyled Vintage Designs did the turquoise table and frame set up on the right, and the other items are Sara's of Revived.
Look at this crackle! Aimee is a new retailer for American Paint Company....she also sells out of a shop called Yesterday Once More in Shipshewana IN.
Sara and her hubby Eric brought lots of cool stuff....they turn over items faster than anyone I know!
And here's some yummy-ness from Kari's Cottage in the Woods Creations. Love her painted yardsticks and signs! That buffet is done in Annie Sloan's Cream....total bliss.
This was my set up....only brought a few small tables from The Serendipity House and tons of my handmade soap.
When things were slow, I brought along an assortment of paints and waxes, brushes and boards for us to try out new products and techniques. I didn't get a pic of that because, well, I was playing with paint and waxes....
We've all had a great time getting to know each, sharing ideas and dreams.
I'm excited to see where our little group goes, and we're hoping to add more artists to the flock
I can't wait for the REAL Serendipity House to get itself built so I can host pop-up shows where my painting mavens can showcase their talent :)
Sharing at Claudia's A Favorite Thing party because new friends and vintage markets are definitely a couple of my favorite things!
