Best Weekend ever!!!!!

Hi, it’s Bonnie.

I waited till tonight, to post for last week because I wanted to talk about our weekend. Amy went to Seahive Marketplace in Oceanside for the first time and she said I need to get over there. It’s a new warehouse type store filled with vendors, notably, Boarding House Broads for one. We love everything they do, and Tracy from the Broads is working there. It is at 1555 S Coast Highway, Oceanside. www.SeahiveMarketplace.com. If the weather would let up I would be there. Maybe next week, 104 is too hot for me, but I will get there.

So for what I did this weekend!! It’s a lot. Friday we went to Costa Mesa for the first @flyingmizdaisy show. Just to let you in on a secret—it was great! The vendors brought their best and we met so many we didn’t know. I love how nice the vendors were. Supporting each other, telling us not to miss seeing other booths, explaining what they do, it is so interesting and they all work so hard. It’s not easy loading, unloading, decorating, redecorating, pricing-everyone we saw were on their feet, talking to customers. We talked to Char, who is the heart and soul of Flying Miz Daisy, she was thrilled with the turnout. The music was wonderful, by the way. It’s a cool place too, in a building called The Hanger. Some great vendors are @vindustrial_supply_co, @junkstyledesign, @love_picking_junk and @rusticandrefinded, @seahousedesign. We met @mala_creations too and love her pieces of furniture. Next one is Dec 1,2 so mark your calendars, don’t miss out.

Sat am we were off to Behind the Picket Fence, again in Costa Mesa. I love this smaller show, it is filled with vendors who really care and love what they do. We knew lots of them and it was fun to say hi and shoot the breeze. Of course every time we go I have to say “get the apple pie ready”. It is the best ever and on a hot day with ice cream and a cold ice tea it made me happy. Among all the vendors, we also ran into Lynn, from @sweet Peas Charm, and I wanted to show the brushes she uses for the plaster paint she reps for Calif. Any stores need a paint line, this is the one. I am using it right now to paint the bottom of my old oak table. It looks good-if I say so.

From there we went straight to @topsecretfleamarket. I posted on Ig about this and she just happened to get the building for another one. We saw lots of different pieces from the first time and we’ll let you know when and where the next one will be. If you like France, this is the one to go to. It moves around but in the Orange County area.

On Sunday we saw a post about a warehouse in LA and we made it over there. It is called Vintage Junction at 4436 Worth St, Los Angeles. The owner has an estate sale company and the warehouse is for all she finds. Its HUGE!! So much fun to rummage around. I really need a truck. We could not believe all the good junk. Prices were fair too. It would be a good place to pick and I’m sure lots of vendors know about it. She is only open once in awhile, we’ll post the next one. Also she is planning to have a event where vendors can sell soon. We can’t wait. The more we get out, the more events we find out about and get to go and tell you guys about them. We are posting all the pics we can, #supportvendors!!!

 

Get ready, we start the holiday season soon. Sooner than later if the stores have their choice. But my calendar is booking up. This Sat we are heading out to Barn House Chicks in Thousand Oaks. Every place we go we ask if they have more shows planned so we can make sure we don’t miss them, I suggest you do the same. All the new creations come out for the seasons. We’ll be posting all the events we know about in advance. Hope to see you out there, it’s going to be so much fun.

Thanks for reading…Bonnie and Amy
