September Vintage Bazaar

My first Vintage Bazaar all by myself, and it went off beautifully. I miss STUDY, its true, but being on my own presents a different set of rewards and obstacles. Here are some photos of the booth.

Recent Acquisitions

I am Cinderella. So busy getting cleaning the house I have no time to make a gown for the ball, or in this case, a website and blog worthy of my awesome new finds. Also, my house isn't clean, I just spend all my time scouring the Chicagoland area for things that make my antiquarian knees weak.

The Vintage Bazaar was a super success. Thanks to Libby and Katherine for all they do.

I am gearing up for Dose Market on October 16. It's always a fun day and I love the food vendors more than they could ever know.

So above are some recent images of newish inventory. If you were at the Congress, you may have seen some of it in person. For Dose, I plan on continuing this trend of rejecting mid century modern and all of its empty promises. Oh, unless it's certain McCobb pieces. Or Wormley's classically influenced interpretations. Fine, it just won't be Scandinavian... unless it's a Saarinen coffee table. Anyway, stay tuned for more.

Out with the Old, to Make Room for More!

Update:Sale was great but still several pieces left, including much of what is pictured here! Contact me with any questions.

Before I premier the new brand at the September 18th Vintage Bazaar, I am having little clearance sale to purge my storage room of some items that are getting a little stale. Please join me this Saturday, August 27th, 9 AM-3 PM at my house, 2632 S. Oak Park Ave, Berwyn IL.

Items include as-is furniture and upholstery items, housewares, and a few non-discounted new finds for good measure.

Cash only.

Call me with any questions!


Past Tense: Beacon Apartment Living Room

This living room was the place John & I shared from July 2009-June 2010. The room was so big that you are only seeing the sunroom portion here. It also housed another sitting area, which I can't seem to find a photo of.

Sofa cushions from the teak sofa fell victim to the puppy (and red wine) and were replaced by large wool pillows from CB2. The wall color was a deep, custom grey with linen white on the trim. Reupholstered typing chairs, in cream wool, purchased from Amazing Space. The french measuring cups were from Room Service in Andersonville.

Past tense: Taylor Apartment Living Room

Here is my apartment's living room from November 2009-July 2010. Located at Taylor Avenue & Madison, Oak Park, IL. The sofa had been on the front porch of my Oak Park House. The chairs now reside in the lobby of my office!

This was a great little apartment for me for awhile. It was bright and clean, with Southern light and tall ceilings. I believe I painted the walls Iceberg by Benjamin Moore.
