Do you have a shoppe? Introducing the vintage market.

Hi, sweetie pies.

I was a painting fool yesterday.

I finished painting the living room
the most perfect shade of faint gray, 
my stone fireplace white
(so that I can properly photograph my denim garland),
  and whitened the weathered window
that I grabbed at auction.
I’ll share everything with you tomorrow because today,
I wanted to take a moment to 
introduce you to my new, vintage market.
See it?

It’s up there, on my clothesline
and over there in my sidebar.
(Yeah, it’s empty right now but that’s the point of this post.)
It’s a concept that I’m so excited about and I’d like to thank Polly at The French Cupboard
for her support when I originally considered a vintage market a few months back.
The vintage market is essentially one big ol’ flea market
for us to share our talent, shoppes, and vintage-ish wares. 

And, one big ol’ flea market for us to shop in.

With the holidays upon us,
I thought it was the perfect time to introduce the vintage market
and increase traffic to your Etsy shoppe or web site
while providing a little extra funding
for my projects, of which there are many.

Yeah, right. 

I’ll be spending it in the market.

I just know it.

Click here for all of the details.
The first two friends to join my vintage market will
receive a free sidebar button spot until December 31, 2010.
Update: Two free spots are spoken for. Thank you.

And, I will do one mini feature of each shoppe
at the bottom of my new posts as another way to let everyone
that they can now find you in the vintage market.

And, for those of you without shoppes,
what do you think?


Also, be sure to check out 
the latest holiday issue of The DIY Life ezine,
featuring 93 pages of the prettiest holiday project ideas
and delicious recipes. (Look for my apple crisp pie!)

    What a lovely idea! No shoppe for me, but I am a happy shopper :-)

    Can’t wait to see your reveal of your living area!! Hoorah!!


  13. Cecily says:

    I would love to do this. Let me know some more about it. Does the stuff in your shoppe have to be vintage? I am soo excited!

  14. Hi Cecily. I couldn’t find an email for you without access to your profile. No, things don’t have to be authentically vintage but should be of a vintage style or work well in a vintage chic home. If you are unsure, send me link to your site and I’m happy to let you know.

    Thank you,

  15. Amy says:

    great. And would love to know the paint color you used. I am looking for the perfect light gray right now.

  16. I loved the greys that are “in” right now-Can’t wait to see the pics of your living room!

  17. Brenda Kula says:

    I always tease myself with the idea of having an online shoppe, then my life and three pets and a saltwater aquarium (which has proved problematic this morning…) and gardening gets in the way. And I wonder if I could possibly find the time? I love the idea though, and know that I will shop there!

  18. What an extraordinary idea! I now only wish that I was crafty enough to have an etsy shop just so I could join in on your fun. I guess I’ll just have to shop there ; )

  19. Olde Tyme Marketplace says:

    Well here you go geting me all geared up to finally add goods to my Etsy shoppe~ which has been severely stagnant for oh I don’t know, since I opened it over a year ago! You’re a stinker like that aren’t ya?
    Give me all the info girlie!

  20. Super proud GB!!! Love the new stuff!

  21. Stephanie says:

    Oh how fun! I can’t wait to shop and read your blog at the same time. Fun, fun
