Remnants of the Past and other stuff!!

Paula Marie’s Vintage Finds

All last week on our Instagram we have been posting pictures of our trip to Three Speckled Hens. What a great show. We wish we didn’t have to wait for Oct to go again. That’s probably the best thing you can say about a show. It was a wonderful time. Be sure and look at our pictures.

Last weekend we went to Remnants of the Past, which was in Southern Calif. for the first time and our first time going. It was held at the Orange County Fairgrounds by Centennial Barn. It’s a good location. It will be here in Oct again and we will post a couple of days ahead to remind everyone. Lots of vendors there that we knew, several we had just seen at Three Speckled Hens. Always nice to see people you know and chat a little. We want to welcome Remnants of the Past to  So. Calif. and we are glad to have a chance to see them grow here. One of the vendors was telling us a story about the song “Happy” by Pharrell and a group dance, sure wish we had video!!!!

There were several vendors we had never met, and hope to see again. Be sure and check our Instagram-weremadabout-to see more pictures. We have lots more shows on our calendar for the future, the next big one being Julian Junkture and The Barn Vintage Marketplace..  It is May 27-28 9-4pm. It’s free which is good since it’s going to be a tank of gas for us from where we live, and two hour drive.  Anyway, we haven’t been to Julian in years so it’s exciting. A beautiful area.

Shabby Chateau

In the next two-three weeks we hope to get out to Riverside for Vintique Alley and Vintage Flair and Mrs. Darlings and Made. Those are our favorites there. Then to Yucaipa for The Nest and also to Long Beach for several of the stores there, Casa de Luxe, Romantic Home, Vintage Emporium for sure. And Covina for Shabbyology and and and…June 2 and 3rd is put aside for Vintage Marketplace in Rainbow, Ca.  Not missing that one!! Mark your calendars, you won’t want to miss any of the fun.

Today we went to Fullerton to see Made New Home Furnishings at 115 S Harbor, Fullerton. We were thrilled at what DeeDee has done with this space. That store is in such a great area, with all the restaurants. There’s a crepes place going in across from her soon and lots going on with the Mercantile Market which is the first Sat of each month in her parking lot. Next one is June 3rd. Quite a collection of makers as they try to keep it varied and new. 10-4 pm, free. The store is open Tues-Sat so go on by and say hi. Also right down the street is The Brick Basement 113 N Harbor,and The Found Shop, 122 N Harbor,  if you want to make a day of it. That’s our favorite activity-figuring out how to put together a day of visiting all these stores. One a day doesn’t cut it anymore, we want to hit 2 or 3. Addiction is one word often used about us!!

Again, please let us know of events close to us. We do want to visit as many as possible and share them with you. All the vendors we know are so hard working, they deserve to get as much attention as possible. Several of them spent two days at Remnants and then we saw them Sunday at Driving Miz Daisy. There were a few we also saw at Three Speckled Hens too!  We are in awe! It is hard work to haul furniture around and hope you are going to sell it.  So help us out by leaving a comment here or on Instagram to tell us about shows and stores, we’ll try our best to get there and tell others.
