Vintage Market

The delightful talented ladies...
Lily & Rachel 
Birch and Bird
(an incredibly creative blog)
are putting on a  
Vintage Market
Please go to
to read all about it and find out who else is coming!
I have posted the VENDOR SPOTLIGHT
they have done on me...but be sure to go see all the others listed on their blogs!

(We are very excited as this is happening almost outside our front door!
The historic town of Clayburn Village is the setting and it has wonderful old buildings!
I really like the way Rachel & Lily set up their blog how they highlight everything....
...not to mention the products they sell in their etsy store!)

We first met Colleen Sawatsky of Vintage Home at the Ivory Vintage Market in White Rock last August. She is so sweet and was one of the first vendors to sign on for The Old School Market and has been beyond supportive of us through these planning stages! Colleen is an avid collector of all things pretty and her lovely work has been featured in Canadian House & HomeStyle At HomeCountry Living and even in O's that for a resume! 
We most recently recognized her fresh take on beachside decor in this adorable guest cottage featured in Style At Home. The photos were coincidentally taken by one of our blog friends, the very talented Janis Nicolay of Pinecone Camp.

Pretty, right? We're so looking forward to seeing what lovely pieces Colleen brings to the Schoolhouse on May 28th...see you there!

Lily + Rachel

Aren't they nice!.....I am hoping you can make it to the sale!

Teresa said...

Oh My Goodness Colleen~
That room that is featured is making me want to add some of that beautiful BLUE in with my white...oh and some HOT PINK too!
I may have to design my new loft studios with these colors.
Are those pillows made from vintage table cloths!?
This is my HAPPIEST look!
You and Koralee need to come to Bainbridge and help me design my new sewing studio.
I'm getting my new machine this week...I think.
Do you sew?
Hugs and this Vintage Market sounds FABULOUS!!!!!!!!!!
I adore your style!
Thanks for always popping over to Bainbridge and making me SMILE!
