Welcome to Let's Talk Vintage!
If you're new to the party, we want to
give you a big LTV welcome!
Feel free to join in and link up your
blog posts about vintage items you love,
collect, use in projects you are working on,
or are inspired by. You can even
link up items you sell, as long as they
are vintage or are made with vintage items.
This week I am sharing the big Grand Opening
celebration of my new brick and mortar shop,
Think my sign made it clear enough what
was happening? I really had no idea
the banners were that big when I ordered
them online. But, people were coming in
saying they saw the sign from the road!
That works for me!
We also had a social media contest.
Customers were to take their photo with
their favorite item and then post it
on Instagram or Facebook...tagging us
of course. Names were drawn
out of a hat, with two winners
each receiving a basket.
I did my basket with
a "Two for Tea" theme while my shop mate,
Kathy, did a "Tisket a Tasket, a Picnic
in a Basket" theme.
Here is our table full of yummy snacks and treats.
I gave customers some Mother's Day gift ideas, too.
I enjoy setting up displays with themes...
this week I'll be setting up a patriotic theme.
And this pretty little gal is new to the shop
and one of my favorite pieces we have
had in the shop so far.
I decided to try Annie Sloan chalk paint.
A beautiful French pink paired with a sweet cream.
The paint is really smooth and silky and
when combined with the wax you get a
super sheen, plus added protection.
I'd be curious to hear if any of you have
tried the AS paint... and what do you
think of it?
Thanks so much for reading along
with my adventures in the shop
process... always something
new and exciting going on!
