Market Report: First Monday Trade Days Finds
Ahhhhh…. It feels so good to finally have the store news off my chest and out in the open! I hated keeping that secret for so long but didn’t want to disappoint anybody if something fell through. If you read my last post, you know what I mean!
But we officially have a storefront and event studio and are trying to open it as soon as possible. I’ve been shopping like mad for unique, cool finds to make the store feel cozy and so Flea Style.
Given our roots and name, flea markets are a natural place for me to start the hunt. During my monthly First Monday Trade Days visits for shopfleastyle.com, I’ve been slowly collecting things I think will make the store special from fixtures and furniture to even products for inside.
Here are some of my favorite things!
This vintage door turned table will make a perfect display under a rack of dreamy vintage threads!
This vintage vanity will make a darling display in our children’s area!
I wanted wood doors for our front entry and found the perfect pair this week!
I bought six of these vintage shutters from one of my favorite vendors to create a rolling wall display for jewelry or art.
I bought these vintage doors several months ago to create walls in our funky dressing rooms.
I bought 14 columns (see far left) to create booth vignettes throughout the store.
Can’t wait to breathe life into these pretty pieces of history!
For products, I always look for unique bits and pieces to add to our best-selling tassel earrings. Several of these beads are from Canton!
From funky art to an old iron bed for a store display, First Monday Trade Days has been a goldmine for our new space.
This belt was a recent Canton find. We plan to browse the market for lots more beautiful pieces for the online and brick and mortar shop!
This jacket was another recent score!
We plan to have a huge vintage clothing section outfitted by our finds and our vendors’ in the store.
This pillow is one of my all-time fave finds from Canton’s fields!
This chair will move into the store and be piled with lots of future textile scores.
