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.
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.
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!
