The Re-InVintage Fair



Last month I was invited to be a part of the 1st ever Re-InVintage Fair in Missouri. It was soooo fun! I had been wanting an avenue in which to sell all my great re-furbished finds and this fair just landed in my lap!










My neighbor handed me a flyer and said,"This is right up your alley!" I called the number and Janice was kind enough to invite me to participate! Janice owns "Julia Price's Tea Room", a beautiful victorian home here in town. She had a great vision for an outdoor affair and it was a BIG success!


There were about 12 vendors and Janice hopes to have more as time goes on. Thoughts are that there may be another Fair in the fall when we have our annual Turkey Festival.




Here is a refurbished wicker set that sold before I even got it all out of the truck! I reupholstered it in vintage fabric and trim then added vintage pillows in ticking and velvet.





A fabulous lunch was served inside the tea house! (Sorry I forgot to take pics!) Janice prepares a wonderful fruited chicken salad on fresh croissants. MMMMM! Bon-bons and sweets round out the menu.




My daughter makes these sparkling necklaces out of vintage buttons!





A collection of Pie Birds.





Lots of shabby furniture for sale.




Some of my vintage linens for sale.




Picking out aprons...






We had a really nice weekend even though the temps were 90's!





Most of these pics were taken of only my booth so go here to see more of what some other vendors had to offer!







Can't wait til next time!

It looks like it was a really fun event! I'd love to try selling at a fair like that, instead of doing Ebay. It would be fun to actually meet the person that's buying your treasures and taking them home!
You asked about the color I used for the backsplash. It's called Secret Garden, and I'm almost positive that it's by Dutch Boy. It goes so well with all of the red stuff in the kitchen!
