I was out of the house early this morning to go to the Old School Market in a little town called Clayburn about a 45 minute drive from my house. This town was established in 1905.
I found out about this market from the Birch & Bird ladies Rachel and Lily. It is held in an old school and it was packed full of great stuff and great people. Everyone was so gracious about letting me photograph their booths.
My first stop inside was at Jen’s Dream Decor to see her lovely fabric memory and magnet boards and clocks. Jen has an Etsy shop here.
Jen said she would like to have a blog one day and I tried to encourage her to start one…maybe when Blogger is playing nice again.
Next stop was at Kevi’s booth Twig Home. She has such cool stuff.
I just have to do the rake thing. Brilliant. Her booth was so crowded I could only get these two shots and even that took some time. Love the paper wreath.
Moving down the row I came to Birch and Bird and their interesting pieces.
Ha, ha, I like this one. Too funny and true.
Who is next on our tour? Stephanie Mason from What Wood You Say that’s who. Now she doesn’t have a web site either but she had some great painted pieces with a black & white theme.
Now here is a great idea. Trove is a company owned by Jessica MacDonald that rents vintage pieces for thing like photo shoots and events. Rentals??? I know. Have a look and make sure to check out her site for some very interesting wedding ideas.
I really wanted to buy those clocks but that is when I found out that they only rent the items for events and photo shoots.
Tracey @ Raggy Girl Vintage had a tableful of goodies. I could see more than one person wanting the cushions. I have more she says, I have more.
Last but not least there was Colleen from Vintage Home. Hi Colleen..waving my hands now…When I gave my card to Colleen and asked permission to take photos of her booth she said that she had actually been to my blog before. I bought a couple things from her. First of all I bought some damask napkins. You can barely see them on the table below.
Along with the napkins I also bought the green ladder below. My son leaned it up against the river rock fireplace when he carried it upstairs for me and it looks awesome there with some of the river rocks being almost the exact same shade of green and a perfect height.
These were not the only booths at the show. There were many more with jewellery and other things but I was there for the vintage pieces.
It was so nice to meet the ladies and now to go and see their blogs. Now if only the followers gadgets were working I could sign up.
