Buying Trip Time!
We are exactly one month away from opening our store! Which means we need to get cracking on rounding up our amazing product assortment!
Later this week, we’re hightailing it out to First Monday Trade Days to scoop up some handmade and vintage items to add to our vendors’ decor, clothing and culinary mix.
We’re on a major textiles hunt this week. From custom pillows to denim embellishments, we’re seeking global pieces to turn into one-of-a-kind fashion and home creations. We love Canton’s wide mix of Guatemalan throws, Mexican serapes and embroidered linens. We can’t wait to show you some handmade cactus pillows we’re designing with a vendor from some vintage chenille we scored last month in Canton!
Our shopper loves some vintage baubles! Turquoise rings are always a best seller so we will definitely be on the lookout for those. Custom necklaces and aged brass bangles are also favorites. We always find these items deep in Canton’s fields and hope this month’s trek is no different!
Our shopper is a nester for sure. Small tables, chairs and bar carts always fly at our shows. We’re hoping to find lots of accent furniture pieces this month for both fixtures in store and to sell on the floor. We’re also looking for two cool accent chairs for our dressing rooms and a small painted dresser for our front studio bathroom. Fingers crossed we find the perfect pieces!
Corbels, crates, brass trays, old pots… These are just a handful of the final touches we’ll be looking for to accent the store and layer in flea market finds to our eclectic styling. Wish us luck this week — and we hope to bump into ya at the show!
