Happydashery at Picnic

Sunday, November 8th, 2009

I’m so pleased to share that my vintage shop, HappyDashery, will again be a part of the Picnic Music and Arts Festival.

This will be the first ever Christmas Fair version of the fest which is that much more exciting for me since I’m crazy for the holidays.

Here are the deets:

    Picnic Holiday Sale
    December 12, 2009
    Irish Heritage Center
    Portland, Maine

Rumor has it there were double the usual amount of applicants so I’m doubly honored to be picked. The full roster hasn’t been posted but check their site again soon to see who else will be there. Lots of excellent local talent for sure.

More Happydashery news…

Aprons are on sale through the entire month of November (plus FREE shipping!). Just in time for holiday baking and entertaining.

Street Treasures

Monday, April 27th, 2009

For someone who professes to love all things vintage I sure don’t share a lot of my treasures with you.

Take photo, put photo on computer, share photo? Not that hard, but sometimes, well….

It’s pure laziness, I tell ya.

Anyway, here is my latest acquisition. Found on my very own street, free for the taking.

I’d love to use this in a laundry room for all our towels and sheets but there’s that whole thing about not having a laundry room. I guess it will sit here in our dining room for a while until the perfect place opens up. The shelves are a bit unstable so I can’t just put dishes or really anything heavy on them. Any ideas?

Not One Word About a Baby in this Post

Monday, November 24th, 2008

Remember when I said I had some vintage finds to share? Well, here’s one that has been sitting around in my kitchen (too much counter space can be a bad thing sometimes) for at least a month or so.

I found four of these brass and glass lamps at a rummage sale a while back.

For four whole dollars. Total.

They have hooks on the bottom of each that would enable them to clip onto a table, which makes me think they might have come from an old library. Though, what’s the point of clipping them to the table when they could also just sit on the table? Am I missing something here? They also bend at the hinge in the middle.

What do you think they were used for? And what kind of shade would you put on them? I’m stumped, though really excited to move them on to the next stage. That of being a working part of my house.

I’m counting on all you thrifting types to help me figure out how.

Picnic: Music & Arts Festival and Me

Tuesday, September 9th, 2008

Once upon a time, there was a brand-spankin’ new festival planned for the city of Portland, Maine. Picnic: Music and Arts Festival is happening this Saturday, September 13th in Lincoln Park.

Come see yours truly in good old booth 64, as well as these talented folks. And of course, many many more.

If you wonder where I am this week, I’m buried under a pile of new vintage goodies for the fest. I’m a bit crazed, but I can’t wait.

See you there!
