Everyone Has a Sign

Before the Vintage Fall Market Weekend, I had asked all the Shop Girls to name their booths.  The names and signs were so creative. 

This is Nancy D.'s sign.  It is one of my favorite names.  Simple, elegant, and I would kill for that frame.

Nancy also has this wonderful vintage Underwood typewriter on a great oak desk.

I've never seen such a pristene antique slip.  If only I had a tiny waist.  I would wear it proudly with my cowboy boots.

Martha made her Abode banner.  It suits her perfectly.

Pam's sign is wonderful.  Everyone wants to buy the small black shutter.

Nancy J. has been to the Paris Flea Markets and wanted to display her wares like they do in Paris.  She also calls her space by a Stall #, #13NBJ.

The original blog queen at the shop, Sandi, A Cottage Muse, just adorable.

Karen K. has two booths.  The Eclectic Palette fits her perfectly. 
Maureen or Auntie Moe's booth always looks amazing. 

Chanel's Shabby Rose has just gone into a new space in the shop.  Mary was working on it when I left the shop tonight.  I can't wait to see what she has created tomorrow.

Jackie, Bluebird Studios, has two spaces with very creative signs.

If you know Jeannie, you would know that this tiny sign "Garden Room Interiors" is hers.  Not overstated, simple, elegant and pure precious.

Tumblebrook, is the name of Susan N. space in the front room. 

I am The Vintage Shopkeeper.  Sandi's husband, Jim, hung the sign up for me.  He did a wonderful job.  I also bought my initials made out of galvanized steel roofing at Brimfield.  I was going to put them in my shed, but I decided to put them in my space instead.

A Vintage Fall Market Weekend

The shop's Vintage Fall Market Weekend is well under way, with one day to go.  I did snap some pictures before we opened the doors.  I had asked everyone to re-do their spaces with fresh merchandise and new displays, and all the Shop Girls blew me away with what they created.

Martha made some great burlap banners.  She's going to make me a vintage banner for my new shed.  I can't wait!!!

This 6' harvest table in Jeannie's booth, sold the first day. 

Practically all of Mary's (Chanel's Shabby Rose) old clock parts flew out the door.
