I recently just had a mini panic attack when I realized how close we are to the next Junk Ranch. I have been working on my displays and thinking about what to sell and I just realized I haven't even sent in my application yet. WHOOPSIE. Thankfully, I am fairly certain that I can still get in - (AMY?) I will be sending in my application this week.
I didn't want to take the same old, same old. I mean, I always sell kind of the same sort of stuff, but I don't want to take the EXACT same stuff that I had at the last sale. I have seen someone that sold at the last sale at two events since and it was the exact same stuff. The exact same stuff. Where's the fun in THAT?
Last night I was thinking of things to sell and a sort of theme - like Fall and Winter-y stuff when I had an epiphany. Vintage Christmas. Like a LOT of vintage Christmas. Aluminum trees, color wheel, fake fireplace, vintage Christmas tablecloths, vintage ornaments, blowmolds, stockings - THE WHOLE SHE-BANG.
What do you think? I think I might have the "in" on vintage Christmas at this event. There might be a sprinkling here and there. But, I would have a LOT, like a LOT, LOT, LOT. This is the first weekend in October. Do you think it is too early? Or just right? I think if you like vintage in general you MUST love vintage Christmas. Right? RIGHT? So if you are out at a VINTAGE MARKET and you see VINTAGE CHRISTMAS you are going to be all "Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!"
This is from the HORRIBLE Holiday Bazaar that Lara and I did last Christmas. Bad venue, no advertising and the wrong type of event in the first place. But, looking at these photos I see that I can do vintage Christmas, vintage Christmas crafting AND vintage all at once and have it look cohesive. I think. *Ignore that high school art project poster on the wall and THEN it all looks cohesive.
So, do you think I should mostly sell Vintage Christmas or is it too soon? I will take other Vintage items like chenille spreads, wool throws, baskets, housewares and kitchen wares, plus all my ephemera stuff AND the feedsack pendants and book cover clipboards in addition to the Christmas.
I'm excited! Should I be? :)
