If I tell you I had a great time at The Vintage Marketplace show I would be seriously underselling the whole thing.
Simply stunning! Creative use and re-use abounds. A vibrant atmosphere chock full of inspiration. I posted a few photos over on FB (so head over and follow me there) and will get a post going in the next few days.
A quick showing of a couple of finds that simply had to come home with me:
Another teapot for my burgeoning restaurant ware collection and two metal "boxes".
Check out how I've already put them to stylish use:
Glitter storage in one drawer and stamps/stamp pads in the other (did it all fit - of course NOT). Sponge brushes and glue guns in the cash box. So much cuter than the plastic bins! I do wish it all fit in one. I have a major problem with never using everything because it is stashed in various places around the house.
And while there were no helpful comments on what to paint first (see the post about that here) I went ahead and picked something to start. Final project shots will follow.
All right. Time to go and strap on the feed bag - it IS Superbowl Sunday after all!!!!
