Sneak Peek Week

We’ve mentioned our upcoming trade show in a few posts—and can’t believe it’s almost here!  This Saturday, we will be at the Red Rooster in New Braunfels, Texas with 15 or so other vendors.  This past weekend, we spent lots of time organizing and planning the final details.  We’ve collected some fabulous pieces and our projects are ready to meet some great new people!  Today, we’d like to share a preview of some of our finds.  These photos show snippets of our vintage kitchen collection.  On Wednesday, we will be posting the full photos with descriptions. For now, can you guess what any of these items are?

Today’s Special: The Invention of Living

In two short weeks, we will be showcasing some of our creations and favorite finds at a trade show in New Braunfels, Texas.  Planning and organizing for this event has been loads of fun. We’ve been reading up on trade shows and finding ways to make our display attractive and unique.  We decided to create an A-frame sidewalk sign—just like the ones we stare down, tummies grumbling, deciding on lunch.  We designed it in our minds and made mental modifications– but because we are not licensed, professional sidewalk sign makers, we seemed to come across some complications almost every time.  Our answer came last month when Ingrid scored a Playskool easel at a yard sale for $5.00!  After a thorough clean up, we spray painted the entire piece in Valspar’s tropical foliage. Our initial plan was to screw the sheets of metal to the plastic, but reverting to our lack of training in sidewalk sign making, we decided on industrial strength Velcro instead—(hmmmm…wonder what else we can “fix” with industrial strength Velcro?!) We added our spray painted magnetic letters and– ta-dah! We love the end result and can’t wait to display it!
