The one about the vintage wedding trunk show


a bright idea...

A customer and I (ok, mostly her) came up with a great idea after I found out she had amassed enough vintage linen tablecloths and napkins to use at her wedding for 200 guests. A trunk show! And because I'd like it to be a little more diverse I am inviting anyone who is so inclined to send me photos of your wedding-related stuff that you would like to sell. Jewelry, cake toppers, vintage or antique whatever. Of course I am extremely picky about what comes thru these doors so please bear with me. A vintage theme is the goal, but if it's handmade it does not have to be old. So here is the call, gather your crafty friends together and send me an email.
Update: The date is February 21, a Saturday, right after Valentines Day. Stacey Costello will be bringing her wonderful cake toppers, ring boxes, etc, made with vintage ribbon and such. Katie Baker will be making ring pillows and other beautiful gifts using vintage hankies and linens. I will definitely be making something, I have all sorts of creativity bouncing around my head right now :)

By the way I wish a very happy, healthy, prosperous new year full of good people to you!

Is this a real life event or an online event? My gf makes beautiful wedding jewerly. I have sent the link to this post to her.

This is an real event that will be held at the shop. I saw Katies ring pillows yesterday made from vintage linens and they are sooo pretty. I would love to have jewelery here! It will be a great day with champagne punch and treats, too!

We might need to take a little road trip. We're in the OC but I know the way to Santa Cruz and will drive almost any where for champagne! What fun! And thank you for your sweet comment on my blog.
