The Open House for MY house!

 
 
We've had lots of good years in this home but are ready to turn the page and see what happens next.  Our realtor, Stephanie, will be hanging out there this Saturday, June 12 from noon to 3:00 if you want to stop in and take a peek.  Then come by and see me at the store! (the house is 2 minutes away!!)
 
 
 The Tour:
 
Here's a preview for you in it's stripped down, staged condition.
 
 
 

 Come on in!
 
 
 
 
 
 
The empty living room which was a dining room.  
And the dining room returned to it's "intended" purpose!




 
 
 
 
 
(yes, the paint is cleaned off the vanity.  Amazing what shows up in photos....!)
 
 
 
 


 
 


One of my favorite places to be.
 
And right across the street..ahhhh. Boise Garden City is good!
 
You're all welcome!!!

The Roses and Rust Vintage Market

 
What a fantastic show.
I'm almost speechless.  Almost.
 
A great crowd, wonderful *junk* and friendly, helpful vendors!
 (thanks Art, Merry and everyone else that helped me with everything from backing in the Uhaul to loading it  up at the end of the show)
Next time....I have to take better pictures but this is what we've got for now.
 
 
 
 Gatherings was right at the front door.


 So was Lipstick Gypsy.
 
 
 I wish I knew the name of every vendor pictured.
Feel free to comment, if you know what I don't!
 
 My next door neighbors from Parma.
They do a show up there in the fall called "Hoot & Holler".  Keep an eye out for that one.
 
 
 Ohmygosh, the trailers.  Guess what is now on my Christmas list.....






And good goods!
 
 
 My daughter, Lauren, was a huge help and so much fun to work with.



 
 
 
 
 

 Next show will be near the end of September.
Really, you don't want to miss it.
  It will be moving North one room to a larger space and I heard there will be a preview the Friday evening before the Saturday show.
 
Thanks Zizi and Bonnie.  Boise has been waiting for you!!!!

We've got a busy June planned!

 
Let's crowd as much as possible into a three week period, shall we? 
 
First off, while I have a captive audience, I'm going to get in a few random shots around the shop....then onto the excitement!
 

 
 


 
 
 
 
TA DA!!!!!
 
 
 
 
We are thrilled out of our minds that the Roses & Rust Vintage Market is coming to Boise.  And that good goods will be one of the 40 something vendors from all around the Northwest showing up with vintage and rusty and old and cottage and cool junk.  You know what I mean!
 
Some of you may be familiar with a show in Spokane called "Farm Chicks".  It started out tiny and has grown to be one of the most popular shows in the country.  Why?  Because great dealers are there but also, great buyers! (face it, would you want to lug a U-Haul from CA if no one came to buy?? Right!)   Your attendance encourages more vendors to want to come sell next time and it just feeds back and forth and grows into this
 monstrous
Vintage
 Festarama!

 This is what the backroom looks like as we stash great stuff especially for this Market.  I'll show you my garage at a later date!
 
 
 
Next on the Agenda!
 
"The Loop" Shop Hop
Friday, June 27 10-6
Saturday, June 28 10-6
 
Ten independent shops encourage you to shop local by making the "Loop" up State Street across Glenwood and onto Chinden to visit their unique, one of a kind places.  Special festivities are planned by each store owner and, trust me, they plan to entice and impress you!
 
Start anywhere on the Loop and pick up a map.  Bring on the fun!!
