Last Saturday was the long awaited Petaluma Vintage Spring Boutique. I didn’t sell at this one, but couldn’t wait to shop it. Extremely charming as expected and what a wonderful group of women!
I took some photos of the great handmade and vintage items and displays -as such things are always inspirational, and if you do shows it’s great to see how others display their goods.

The weather was balmy but traffic for the sellers a bit slow. Apparently spring is a tough time of year for shows. The booths were so wonderul, and the merchandise fantastic. I found some really fun vintage goodies to craft with and a couple of great little gifts for a mom-to-be and a teacher.
My big buy was this fantastic HUGE biscuit box that how sits atop my dining room hutch. The photo doesn’t do it justice. Just look at those labels and the typography, can you stand it?! I couldn’t, so it was my Mother’s day gift to me. (I try to work the most current holiday to my shopping advantage.)
