Fall 2014 Glitter Market Recap

In spite of heavy rain most of the day, Glitter Market this past Saturday was a great success! The weather was perfect on Friday for set up, and I did manage to get my last few things inside on Saturday morning during a lull in the showers. Lots of people drove miles Saturday in the downpour to be there, and a line was waiting at the door at 10am.

I got a few not-so-great photos of my table before the doors opened, but none after my friend Chris arrived to help. I appreciate her so much, as there were times when both of us were adding and bagging as fast as we could. There were also times when we were able to visit a bit and I was happy for that, too. Thank you, Chris!

The frames on the wall and the stars are Paper Crown decor that was already in place. They make a perfect backdrop. Another wall has vintage wallpaper, and another is papered in old book pages. There are also chandeliers hanging throughout this space that make it seem a little bit magical.

To see more photos of the other vendors and wonderful items that were on offer, check out the Paper Crown blog here.

A big thank you to all the enthusiastic and appreciative shoppers, to Cindy Winter at Paper Crown and her able and friendly assistants, to Jackie Peters, to the other vendors (who were great customers, too!) and to my DH who helps me shop for vintage most weekends, carts my finds, helps me paint and refurbish those finds when needed, and is just a good sport about having a house full of other peoples old stuff!

I have photos from three recent swaps to share in my next few posts. Hope you'll stop by to see!


  1. Makes me want to shop! Love your tablecloth!

  2. OMG, what fun! I want a closer look! And, I am so happy it was a success! In more ways than one, sounds like!

  4. You are such a talented soul.I love how your are using all these vinatge items to create something great out of it. This requires a lot of imagination and hard work. All the very best for this beautiful venture.
