 It is less than one week until THE OLDE FARMHOUSE VINTAGE MARKET!!!

I thought it would be a good idea to suggest some helpful tips for market day!  This may be your very first market or perhaps you are a market hopper…either way you need to be prepared for a fun day of JUNKING!!!

1.  Load up your family and friends!!  There is something for everyone at the market…and it’s always fun to shop with someone!!

2.  For all of you early birds…dress in layers! These fall days can be so unpredictable!  Let’s hope for sunshine…but I know the junker’s mind….rain or shine you are coming for the treasures!!

3.  A large enough vehicle so you don’t have to leave a treasure or friend behind!!

4.  A measuring tape to make sure your item is a perfect fit!

5.  Re-usable shopping bags or a cart.  You need your hands free to shop (or to hold your morning coffee) !!

6.  CASH!!  Most vendors are cash sales only.  However, some vendors are now able to accept a credit card.

There will be an ATM on site in Barn #1 in case you need it!!

The Runway Café will once again be on site to help keep you going!!  They will be serving a variety of snacks and lunches &  hot and cold beverages…remember the Hot Apple Cider last year?? Yummy!!  It will be back again this year!!

For all of you non-shoppers, there is a covered picnic table area with some activities to pass the time while your loved one shops till they drop!!

Parking…it’s free and there is lots of it!!!  There will be some wonderful volunteers out there helping you to find a parking spot.  There is also an overflow parking lot at the corner of 105th Ave and Lougheed Hwy.  Just watch for the signs!!

So… Are you ready??

I am so excited to see you all at the market!!  It is going to be a wonderful day of JUNKING!!

Valley Girls Vintage Market and Red Door Farm held their vintage sales this past Saturday.  What a lovely day!!  My daughter and I headed out from Maple Ridge in time to be there for the 10:00 opening…..ok, so we got there before 10, I admit I love being first in line!!  Rain was forecasted but it turned out to be a beautiful day to visit all these wonderful vendors!!  Our first stop was the Valley Girls Vintage Market.  Frances, from  The Nostalgic Nest hosted the market in her gorgeous backyard.  It was a perfect setting for it!   Everyone was so cheery, and all the vendors had wonderful treasures ready and waiting for shoppers to arrive.

I wonder if someone scooped it up??

This is one of Frances’ favorite finds!!  She could have sold it many times throughout the years, but she is not going to part with it!! Can’t you just picture some little boy playing with that truck??  What a great color too!!

Allison and I were ready to re-do her bedroom when we saw all these gorgeous pieces that Frances, from  The Nostalgic Nest (https://www.facebook.com/NostalgicNest)  had done!  The bed, the lights, the nightstands, the dresser, the trunks, agh!!!  We loved it all!!!

Well after shopping and chatting with everyone here, Allison and I headed off down the street to Red Door Farm!! ( https://www.facebook.com/pages/Red-Door-Farm/164637970235532?ref=hl)  We had to go and visit with Cheryl and see what we could find!!

Allison couldn’t leave without this darling little bag made by Cheryl.  There is even lace on it that was her grandmother’s!!  Allison also found a vintage book on Friendship, full of cute poems that she is looking forward to sharing with her friends.  I am tickled pink that she is into the “Vintage World” !!

Well hopefully you had a chance to make it out to these sales and do a little shopping of your own….but if not you will have a chance to see many of these wonderful vendors in September at The Olde Farmhouse Vintage Market!!!  (https://www.facebook.com/events/148745518651654/?ref=22)

I am so excited to announce all the vendors for the fall market!!  It is a wonderful group of vendors and they  are all very excited to create yet another day of Junking at

THE OLDE FARMHOUSE VINTAGE MARKET!! 

TOF_Fall2013_postcard_FRONT_webTOF_Fall2013_postcard_BACK_web

A few of the vendors that have been chosen are so new to this market world that they don’t yet have a blog or Facebook page.  They are very talented people and for some of them they have attended markets in the past, as shoppers, and are now making the jump into becoming a vendor!!  ( I definitely know how that feels!!) I would like to give a shout out to them as I am not able to include them on the Vendor list along the right hand side of the blog until I can add the link to their page.  So here they are….

Magpies

White Rose Vintage

Rose Knight

Rhodeside Stand

Kits Studio Handmade

Boutique Destiny

Sassy Chic

I am so happy to have such a fantastic group of vendors gathered for this market!!  Take some time to have a sneak peak at the links listed (on the right hand side) and start your shopping lists!!  It is going to be a great day of Junking!!!

Over the weekend, I (Barb) was able to treat myself to Aroka Vintage’s Grand Opening and Market, and what a wonderful treat it was!! Dawna’s store is in the cutest vintage home with a beautiful garden area, perfect for the market. It was chilly, but the rain held off so everyone was able to take their time and enjoy.

 

 

Each vendor had beautiful items and displays, there really was something there for everyone!! And to top it all off there was lemonade, popcorn and cotton candy!!! Yummy!!

 

 

 

For those who may not know, Aroka Vintage is located at 2231 Clarke Street in Port Moody. If you have not been there yet, you really need to find some time to drop in!!
