Cottage Vintage Home 1st Sunday Flea Market July 7th Line up......

With  the Uber Chic container sale under my belt it's now time to concentrate on the Cottage Vintage Home 1st Sunday Vintage Flea Market being held on July 7.
The line up is looking VERY good with my special guest Lisa Love Harris, author, who will be at my flea market signing her book,  First Monday Murder.  Along with Lisa, there will be 29 dealers selling their great vintage treasures.  The list is a long one and you can view who is coming by visiting my Facebook page, Cottage Vintage Home.
I look forward to seeing you all there.
Also, don't forget that the Recycled Arts Fair is this coming weekend at Esther Short Park.  It centers around all things recycled, repurposed and reused.  Cottage Vintage Home has participated for 3 years now and I will be there this year with my spoon jewelry, scrabble tile pendants and, new this year, some pallet tables and other furniture.
See you there, 10 to 5 Saturday and Sunday.

Uber Chic......Don't Forget.....It's on June 21 & 22

The Uber Chic boys will be at Cottage Vintage Home on June 21 & 22.  This is just a short reminder so that some of you do not show up at the shop tomorrow expecting to see "the boys" and their container.  Not that I don't want to see you, I do but I hate to disappoint.

Have a great evening and I will be at the shop tomorrow just incase you want to come and see me.

I Don't Even Want To Say This, But................Another Date Change, Yes, Another One

As I was shopping at Nordstrom today, I received a phone call from Dustin of Uber Chic.  Guess what he told me?  What, you can't guess?  Well, let me tell you..................

The container will NOT be ready by June 14.  What?!!! I said.  No way is this happening....again.  But yes, it was and is happening again. 

The new dates are June 21 and 22.  Hopefully, this is far enough away that Customs will have done everything they need and want to do with container by then.  Let's hope so.

So change your calendar again and we'll see you at Cottage Vintage Home on June 21 and 22 in wonderful Vancouver, Wa.  Call me before you come if you like, (360) 721-9980.

Thank you for all your understanding and patience...

What can I tell you ?  The container sale has been rescheduled for June 14 and 15.  There is not going to be a container coming for tomorrow so if you had plans to be at my shop, Cottage Vintage Home, please do not come with the intention of seeing Uber Chic and their european container goods.

Do, however, make new plans to be at the shop on June 14 & 15, Friday and Saturday for the best ever european treasures.  The Uber Chic boys always bring the best items and you will not want to miss this matter what.

It's finally here, the week of the infamous UBER CHIC CONTAINER SALE at my shop, Cottage Vintage Home.  It takes place on June 7 & 8, that's Friday and Saturday of this coming week.

The stage is set for great weather and fun times.  European goodies will be available to see, touch and buy so don't be late and plan to shop, shop, all starts at 9:00 AM.


Well, here we are again getting ourselves all geared up for the June 2 flea market at my shop Cottage Vintage Home.  The weather has agreed to cooperate so I'm not very worried about that.  The wind should not be an issue so I'm not worried about that either.....THANK GOD!!!!

I have many new things that I will have at the flea market.  Even though my shop will be open, please be sure to look around outside the shop for some larger items that I will have for sale.  Big industrial carts and such are not to be missed and at prices that, dare I say, are very resonable.

So please come on out and support these dealers because we are doing this for Vancouver and trying to bring some excitement alittle closer to home.  It starts at 10 and goes until 3.

Get Ready for 1st Sunday Vintage Flea Market.......At Cottage Vintage Home June 2

Well, as things continue to progress here at Cottage Vintage Home,  I am once again in preparation mode for the second in a series of flea markets I am having at my shop.

On June 2, I will be hosting 20 wonderful dealers at my 1st Sunday Vintage Flea Market.  The first one was such a raving success that I can only hope that this one is as well received.  No doubt, it will

The weather has agreed to behave so maybe we won't have so much wind....keep your fingers crossed.  But by all means, please make a point to join us from 10 to 3.

In other new, Theresa Souder-Gordon of Fresh Picked has officially moved into my shop. Her space looks amazing and it carrys a theme that is fun and sassy.  Come take a look at her treasures before they are all gone.

As most of you know, when I opened my store a year ago I had done so without anyone dealers renting space from me.  Well, then I added Chris Kuntz and her Art Circus into my mix offering classes to my customer base and intoducing new customers to my store, too.  Then Theresa has now been thrown into my mix as a fresh face, if you will, for my customers, as well as, her followers being intoduced to Cottage Vintage Home.  I see this as a win-win.

I am delighted to have both these ladies in my shop and I hope that I can help them build their business', too.  So get on down here and take a look at all the great items we now have to offer at Cottage Vintage Home.  I'd love to meet you.
