Less Than a Week to Go and Busy, Busy, Busy!

The Vintage Marketplace is less than a week away! Next Friday and Saturday, the 7th and 8th of September, in Fallbrook/Rainbow, CA. you’ll find my husband and I as vendors at one of the top 25 romantic style markets in the USA.

We’ve been busy, busy, busy preparing for the show!  Besides bringing some awesome vintage finds, here’s some things in the works right now:

candle holder

Repainting this vintage candleholder.  The paint was peeling so it gets a makeover.

felt flower brooches and hair ornaments

Crafting felt flowers an making them into hair flowers and brooches.

booth decor

Making more booth decor (don’t worry, they’re not vintage patterns)

vintage furniture in progress

Painting furniture.  This little side table is darling and has drop leafs.

paper flowers in progress

Crafting more brooches and hair flowers from vintage papers.

bedspread soak

Soaking antique crocheted bedspreads in OxyClean and Fels-Naptha. These will be decorating my booth and afterwards find a home with me.

textile approver

And, of course, they met approval even before their soak.  Kitties are quick to approve of textiles.

    Ooooh, your felt flowers look lovely! I’ve not had a chance to make any yet.

    That little table is darling!! Wish I wasn’t 1000+ miles away!

    I didn’t know you could use oxy-clean on vintage linens; I’d love to hear what kinds of cleaning products/techniques you use for that kind of stuff. I see random (and conflicting) info all over the internet, and it always seems very general (be gentle, don’t use bleach, etc.). It’d be interesting to get the straight dope from someone who actually cleans their linens/fabric. Perhaps a future post, when you have a lull? :^)
