Window at Monticello-An Update

Early Monday morning I headed over to Monticello to re-do the front window. I had great sales the first two weeks of the month and got lots of super positive feedback on my "Spring Cleaning" theme.
I basically emptied out the entire window and started from scratch to create a "Boudoir" theme with a huge rolling clothing rack full of vintage slips, nighties, dresses and more. Lots of jewelry including soldered necklaces, earrings and rings made from vintage finds, ticking pillows and vintages cases, a cute vintage vanity and a unique antique bench/chest which would be perfect at the end of a bed or in an entry.
Darcey at Monticello took some great pictures of the space which you can see on facebook. If you're not already a facebook fan of Monticello, go right now and like them. It's a great way to get updates on what's going on with sales, specials etc.
I'll be heading back in tomorrow with more goodies for the window and my regular space. Between restocking my booths and getting ready for Farm Chicks, I've beeen one busy girl. TTFN!

Monticello Home & Garden Show

Where the heck did March go? What a crazy, busy, fun month that was but here we are, now in April. I had a great visit with my little brother in beautiful Phoenix, AZ. Did quite a bit of thrifting and found some lovely vintage items. We also spent a few days during spring break up in Seattle and Vancouver, BC. The weather was kind of crummy, but we had some great family together time, ate some great food and saw the sites.

I also spent some time in March getting ready to be the dealer for the window at Monticello for the month of April. Just got moved in yesterday and while I need to add a few things and maybe do a little tweaking here and there. I have to say, I am tickled pink with the results. Here is a picture courtesy of Darcey at Monticello.


Kind of hard to get a good picture of everything as the glare on the window was pretty bad. For the first half of the month I’m going with a Spring Cleaning theme. Then in a couple weeks, I’m going to change it up with a Vintage Boutique theme. So fun to do something new!

Don’t forget, the Monticello Spring Home & Garden show starts this Friday. Lots and lots of great stuff the dealers have been saving just for this show.


As you can see, the show runs through May 28, and the dealers will be continually restocking, so make sure to come in often.

My next big show is Farm Chicks, the first weekend in June. Starting to get really excited about it. Lots of projects in the works and I know it will be here before I know it. Now, if only the weather would cooperate a bit so I could work on those projects. TTFN!
