Vintage Lynchburg Holiday Sale 2013

On Saturday I was a vendor at Vintage Lynchburg Holiday Sale sponsored by the Regeneration girls.

Vintage Lynchburg Holiday Sale

The sale was held in a warehouse on historic Jefferson Street in downtown Lynchburg.

Mr. SP helped me set up my booth the night before the sale.  Don’t you love his artwork on my bulletin board turned chalk board?

Vintage Lynchburg Holiday Show Sweet Pea's Booth

I made a fun pennant sign out of cereal box pieces and scrapbook paper.  Ornaments were displayed on a shutter from my mom’s historic home and milk glass on a shelf the former owner of our home left behind.

We used our old screen door and springs from a crib that Suzanne and I found on an early morning run to display ornaments, candy cane wreaths, and pallet wine racks.

I was sure that my dog pillows would make a fun presents but I didn’t sell a single one.  I have plenty of dog owner friends, so these will still find a home.  A few people liked my chairs and table but they didn’t sell.

Below are a few snapshots of what the Regeneration girls were selling.

Since I was manning my booth all day, I didn’t get a lot of opportunity to visit the other vendors. Before the show started, I snapped a few pictures to share. Junkpartners had some fun albums and lots of vintage Pyrex that I loved.

Another booth, not sure whose.

Aren’t these cards fabulous?

This was my view for the day.

It’s always surprising what sells and what doesn’t sell.  I thought that my Christmas things would be more popular than my vintage items but I was wrong.

Many thanks to the Regeneration girls for their hard work in organizing this sale and for selecting me to participate.

  1. Looks like lots of fun! I’ve done shows like this before and it is always surprising what sells! Have a great week ~Sonya

  2. Paula,
    We were thrilled to have you participate! Thanks for this great write up and fabulous pictures!
    The first vendor with the reclaimed wood was Whitney DeWitt with Live You Designs (her items can be found at Studio Eleven on Main St). Those amazing cards were original artwork by Lisa Jonas ;)
    Best,

  3. I’m curious then….what sold the best? It’s always interesting! Your booth looks so great!! I’m sorry I didn’t get a chance to stop by but it looks like it was a great sale. I can’t believe your chair and table didn’t sell. I thought they would be first out the door!

    • Megan – My cousin made dog treats that sold like hot cakes. I sold quite a few vintage maps and patterns. The candy cane wreaths hanging on the wall all sold. I only sold three ornaments the entire day. I really thought that they’d sell.

  4. Totally cute stuff everywhere! Oh and I love your husband’s handy artwork!! Cute! :)
    Too bad you live on the other side of VA …or I’d have visited! ;)

  5. Oh Paula, I totally know how you feel. I was a vendor at the Va Beach Christmas Market this year and it just about wore me out getting ready for it! I did decorate, but I admire you for knowing when it was time to sit this one out. Your home of Christmases past was lovely by the way! I love that you still cherish your stocking and tree skirt that came from your grandmother. Those are very special pieces! XO

  6. This looks like a great show. I enjoy going to craft shows and markets but I would never want to be a vendor. It must be exhausting making things to sell, packing and unpacking, setting up a display, and then putting up with insensitive remarks from passers-by who say, “Oh I can make that.” But back to your post — it is fun looking at these pictures and recognizing items featured in past blogs. Merry Christmas Paula!
