::Vintage Market::

Remember I told you about my wee group of painting mavens?



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.



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!

Your display was lovely. Such a great idea to use a plate rack (Ikea's?) and what a lovely colour you painted it. I might still this idea... Can I?

Sweet! I've been crazy busy the past few weeks and haven't stopped by lately. You are really doing some creative work! One of these days I will have to actually go to Ft. Wayne (I live about 40 miles away) and see your work firsthand! :) I noticed you've done some special projects for people. Would you ever do a personalized sign for my cottage? I've been wanting to get one. Anyways, great projects!

You had me at turquoise. I'm a sucker for that shade, and with the liberal use of turquoise at your table, well I'm drawn like a moth to a flame. Very pretty it all is. I bet you all had a fun time working and selling together.

So great that you have this lovely group of people as support - and they are talented, indeed.

I am loving your soap, by the way. How talented you are!

Thanks so much for joining in this week.
