This weekend I happened across an estate sale. Of course I had to stop, and I was so glad that I did. I found this pretty little wicker chair. The back is a beautifully intricate heat shape. I had never seen anything like it before, and so yes, I bought it.
Last Saturday I had a booth in our local Vintage Market put on by our local Chamber of Commerce. I wasn't sure how I would do, and I was so happy with the outcome! My best sellers were my pillows, which I love making! I sold my little rocker and all of my sewing boxes. I sold the little antique dresser I just finished, and met so many wonderful people! I even found a shop that will take my goods on consignment in the fall. I thought it would be fun to show you some of the items that I have blogged about and were sold on Saturday.
This little display cabinet was a pretty quick fix. I had to cut and replace the glass in the front of the cabinet. Then I sewed a collaged fabric piece for the inside of the cabinet. I lined the back panel with corkboard before I attached the fabric. I was going to make this piece to display vintage sewing items, but then I thought I would add hooks to the top and keep it neutral so it could be used to display jewelry, hang family photos, and really the possibilities are endless!
I love these little Cathedral windows! I keep trying to perfect the process because they are so time consuming. The first ones I did completely by hand, and then I started reading on the internet ways to make the process a little easier. (The sewing machine is your friend!) I found a great tutorial at lovelylittlehandmades.blogspot.com. Here is what I have so far. I'll update as I progress!
I'm an art teacher and junk lover! I like to hunt for and repurpose treasures from flea markets, old barns, yard sales and funky shops.
