Hi Everyone, we had a great time selling at the Antique Expo Show in Portland and I have a bunch of photos to share below. You can also read my past posts Tips to French Flea Markets and our trip to the famous 6000 booth Brimfield Antique Show in farmers fields outside of Boston. First, I have some great samples by our talented design team ladies to share.
Check out this fun toilet roll recipe album that DT Member Kathy Clement created and decorated with papers from CD 1, Creating with Vintage Patterns, our Domestic Goddess Scraps and Kitchen Time Cut (now digital)
DT Member Elizabeth Lincoln printed the glove from our Garden Style Digital Stamp set and created this classy white glove by embossing it on vellum with a matching tag . It makes a great gift holder to tuck in a gift card, tickets or invitation to lunch/tea.
DT Member Darlene Pavlick has a great little tutorial on her blog showing how she made
this sweet baby frame using the Rosebud and Stripe .99 cent Printable Paper Set
Here's a pretty card by DT Member Melissa Bove using a garden image with some of our printable embossed looking paper.
I like how DT Member Sheila Rumney changed the the girl and sentiment from our
Garden Girl Stamp Set (now digital) to blue to match her paper. You can see her tutorial here on 'How to Change Colors' using Photoshop Elements.
Sheila also created this pretty digital layout using Wild Roses Printable Paper 99 cent set and the word Cherish is from Angel Blessings Digital Stamp set.
I love this sweet photo and layout DT Leader Vicki Chrisman did using this photo from her Whatevers Photo Challenge with our Photo Studio Stamp Set. You can get details and the photo from Vicki's Blog if you want to join in.
Here's a bunch of photos from the Portland Show we sold at over the weekend. It's a very strange set up as 'early buyers' can come in Friday the same time as they let the vendors in to set up. It's great for the buyers but a little hectic for sellers.
I have a thing for old hardware so I fell in love with this booth but owner Albie was just setting up and I never made it back. We may do a road trip to California in Aug and go see him at the Alameda Point Antiques Faire and sell there. It's the largest antique show in
Northern California. Held on the 1st Sunday of every month with over 800 booths. Next show is Aug 4/13
Check out this beautiful collection of antique embroidery floss
What an adorable little poem on this dolly's bed
Scott liked this cozy chair and ottoman
Here's our booth inside. We sold a bunch of the letterpress alphabets for over $100.00 a set and several word combinations. They were really popular, even for people buying a mix of 3 or 4 styles of the same letter for a initial.
Our CD's also sold well at the show. I think people who like old images don't want to cut up the real thing, so they loved the idea of being able to re-size and re-print the papers and images.
I was smitten by this booth in the next 2 photos but I can't remember the owners name. He has a spot in the Monticello Antique Marketplace in SE Portland and the store looks worthy of a visit!
Love the cut of this jacket
Hats and all sorts of vintage clothing from Victorian styles to retro funky
Who doesn't love vintage kitchey stuff to add homey appeal to a kitchen.
There was a lot of amazing jewelery in every price range
There were a bunch of booths with unique upcycling and furniture re-do items
I would love to hear what you think of these old plaster patterns?
I will be adding some new items on my next post
Wishing you joy & creativity
