Vintage Market Success!

IMG_2429(1)

We had a great time at the Chartreuse Barn Spring Market Days last weekend. The beautiful weather brought out a ton of buyers and treasure hunters. We were so busy with our own shop that I did not get much of a chance to explore everything on the grounds — but from what I saw, those looking for treasures were surely not disappointed. Chartreuse features 6 historic barns/buildings filled to the brim with unique and vintage goods, and last weekend the grounds were full of even more goodies than usual (like ours!). It was a great experience for our first foray into staging and designing our space for retail, and we had a blast talking with customers about our process, our projects, and custom order requests. Here are some pics from our shop and a few from around the barns and grounds. You can check out more about Chartreuse at http://www.chartreuseandco.com.

We love vintage Americana — basically anything with a flag or an eagle is pretty rad.

This giant barn is full of furniture -- many of which is unfinished or needs fixin' up -- awesome!

One of the best things about the market was getting our kids involved in building the tent and setting up the shop! Great practice for when we have our own place one day…
