april shop weekend

ready for the april sale
all set up for the april sale

The shop is all ready for the April sale this weekend- and it looks FABULOUS. There are some great treasures this month. There are a few changes down at the store. The name (and owners) have changed to Studio 1404. Kelly, the previous owner, has decided to change directions just a bit, but she will still be a vendor with all of her gorgeous goods. She built a beautiful store, and Brian and Amanda are continuing the tradition. Also, I have moved further towards the front of the building- right inside the double glass doors. Come down and see us- the weather should be perfect!

Well, my booth at Brocante Bliss is just about ready, and this upcoming weekend (Dec. 7-9) is the big weekend! Today's the day we all get ready, and it's really hoppin' down there with all of us arranging, rearranging, placing and pricing.Also, there will be a CONTEST! With PRIZES! Brocante Bliss has teamed up with Hope House this season for the 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway. <--- Click on that link for all the details. Plus you'll be helping women and children through Hope House too! Here are a few of the furniture pieces I'll have available. I'm planning on taking a few more photos of the booth all fluffed up tonight, and I think I'll walk around and take photos of some of the gorgeous goodies everyone else has to offer. I'll try to show more tomorrow. Hope to see you down there! p.s. See this little sparkly house. Um... yeah. Little N and I HAD to have to have it.

here I go.

Well, hello there!My little Mayfly business is growing! I've decided to open a booth space down in the West Bottoms Vintage district. My space will be in the Brocante Bliss building. It's a gorgeous collection of vendors, and I'll be right next to my friend Chris, who was instrumental in talking me into this. I will have rehabbed, repurposed, and handmade furniture and home goods, artwork, and vintage treasures. I'm concentrating on baby and children's items for now because these items go hand-in-hand with my mural services, which I would *love* to advertise a bit while I'm there. Also, it will give me focus these first few months, which I'm finding out, I need. chair drawers I've been thrifting and hunting, scraping and painting (in between photoshoots and editing- did I mention how busy I already am this time of year?). I've finished one large project, this pretty desk/dressing table and I've got several more in the queue. I'm slowly building stack of little treasures to accessorize and fill my space. And I'm sketching out some handmade items too- stockings, little pillows, bird paintings, etc. to fill in the spaces. desk Have you been down to there to the vintage market on a first friday weekend? It's super fun, and there is so much goodness to be found! It happens to be a first weekend right now, so go down and check it out. I won't be there until NEXT month, December 7th, 8th & 9th. I'm a little nervous about all of this. Will I have enough stuff? Will it look good? Will it sell? Will I make any money at this? Only time and hard work will tell. Wish me luck!
