To Market...to Market...our first annual "Vintage Market Day"July 21st, 2010 in blog
I know this is short notice...but I'd SO love for you to visit our first annual "Vintage Market Day" (aka our first occasional sale!!).
When: Saturday, July 24th
Time: 9am - 3pm
Where: 1985 Richwood Drive in sunny Mansfield, Ohio
What you'll find: Lots and lots of antiques, primitives, trash-to-treasured vintage decor for your home and garden, redesigned vintage jewelry, junk AND MORE!
My friends (Terri, Carol, Robin, Ginny and a few others) and I have collected, cleaned, repaired, painted AND created until all hours of the night... Actually, I've been thinking of putting a cot in my basement! A lot of it has been piling up (I mean stored...) in my basement - and right now, there's at least a path to walk through! We've got SO much stuff!!!!!! There are 5 or 6 of us, and I gotta say we're experts in the science of collecting (I did not say hoarding...) - so you just don't know what you'll find here!
I've posted new pics on my blog - www.sylviasdaughter.blogspot.com - and wanted to share a few here too. There are so many successful occasional sales in Minnesota, and of course those Junkfest girls just really know how to throw a great sale (and I will visit it one of these days...promise!). So.......we're going to give it a try too. We've handed out flyers EVERYWHERE, advertised in the local newspaper, on my blog, and craigslist - so, I'm expecting just a few shoppers. I've gotten emails from blogging friends from different parts of Ohio - and I can't wait to meet them. And, I've been told that our very own Junkermidge is hoping to make the trip too - woo hoo!!!
Even though it's supposed to be close to 90 degrees on Saturday, we've chosen (actually I almost made it mandatory - ha ha) - that we wear vintage dresses, aprons and hats - so that will definitely make for some fun photo ops!!! And, there will be refreshments (cookies and lemonade) AND door prizes - sounds just about perfect, right??? Now all we need are customers (oh yeah...and dry weather would be awesome too)!
So, I know lots of you are too far away to visit - but I wanted to show you what I've been up to - and it's just alot of plain ol' junk busy-ness!
Have a great summery weekend!
P.S. Oh yeah...almost forgot - there will be a few clocks for sale too!
P.S. and FYI - I'm already planning for next year - it'll be Saturday, July 23, 2011 - save the date!! :) (I'm such a planner.........)
