First of all, I would like to apologize for being away from my blog for almost two months. If you read my previous post, you know that I started merchandising a fabulous store called "Serendipity". It's a wonderful mix of antiques, vintage, home and garden, along with local art. The store is housed in a huge, 3000 square foot building that has beautiful stained concrete floors, large windows, and high rafters that are prefect for hanging antique baby buggies, rusty bed springs, and all kinds of re-purposed lighting fixtures. If I was a busy woman before the store, I'm a crazy busy woman now! In the middle of April, we were involved, as a store, in our first vintage trade show "Three Speckled Hens." We had a blast, met so many new people, and learned a lot about the vintage trade show business. The three "hens" that put this show together do such a great job and make everyone feel so welcome. We were so happy to be a part of it, and look forward to doing it again in the fall. It was nice to get our feet wet with this show, because we were just invited to be a part of the" Remnants of the Past" show. Remnants is a huge vintage show. Not huge in size, but huge in popularity and it is held here on the Central Coast. I will be introducing my new line of sari silk lampshades and pillows at that time. The store will be well represented in our booth with a great mixture of plants, vintage, and re-purposed art. So much to do, the show is only a month away.
