Antique fairs and flea markets are not just great venues for buyers but for sellers as well. I believe it is an art onto itself to set up a successful booth in an arena full of other dealers. My eye went right to these exquisitely made pieces by Letty Worley at last years Country Living Fair.
She makes her unique creations from salvaged vintage relics, trims and mohair. Some are even functional like this needle holder on the left. Others are just wonderful pieces of art. All are signed and one of a kind.
At the Country Living Fair this dealer did it old school, handmade brooms created on site were selling like hot cakes. You had a choice of natural or finished wood handles.
Then there is Dorthey Loud, a dealer from Florida who specializes in high end vintage jewelry, clothing, accessories, Judith Leiber bags and in being fabulous.
Win Some Art Goodies!
I really fell for the booth of Lisa Price of Art Goodies. Her original linocut block prints were mixed lots of groovy vintage goodies and the bright, cheerful booth pulled me right in. I love the bold graphics of her designs and then I saw the Pie print and was sunk and she bakes them too!
She has offered up a two prizes a pillow and a tea towel, winners can choose the patterns they like from her etsy store.
