The Olde Farmhouse Christmas Market

Friday, November 30, 2012
Hi, my name is Jen and 

Yep, I left my "real" desk job years ago so I could make stuff.  Buy and scavenge for old stuff, paint it, clean it, fix it, and try to get money for it.  And I LOVE it!

A few weeks ago, I got to share all my junk things with a whole bunch of people at the 
Olde Farmhouse Christmas Market.

It was months of collecting and my self made job is actually a lot of work!

But thankfully it is work I love for the most part.

The market was open Friday night and all day Saturday and it was hoppin!  It was nice to see some familiar faces and some returning customers from the previous Olde Farmhouse Market  in June.

Once again, Leah and Barb who organize this event did a wonderful job and it was a huge success.  The venue was the perfect setting, along with all their thought out details and preparation.  I feel lucky to have been a part of it.

There was 40 vendors and a large variety of items. Each vendor had their own personal style, flare and craft.

It was definitely a good way to jump start the holiday season.

This cute little lace vintage purse went to a little girl who apparently has quite the large collect of handbags:)

And this funky vintage chair (which I got some grief over purchasing for it's "unique" flare lol), was the first piece of furniture I sold at the market.  Go figure!

Sharing a love for these these unwanted items and giving them a new chance, is one of the best things about what I do.

Just as the definition reads on my "Vintage" highboy dresser:)

I brought out the lights and had some elves:)

Kristy from brought a whole whack load of her treasures and handmade items so we had plenty for all seeking to find something unique and treasure.

I wish I would have taken a picture of her pickled presents:)

Thanks again to Leah and Barb for making this all happen and to everyone who came and supported all of us and our crafts!


And on a side note, thanks to all my peeps and followers on my blog and facebook page.  Today mentioned me, and apparently, I was their #1 means of external referrals for the month of November via my blog.
I feel special:)!


  1. Your space looked so good! It was great to see you again!

  3. Love this, I to recently have quit my desk job and have started doing what I love, restoring, repainting and making the old, new again. Soon hope to have the shop open and thriving. Best of luck, from one Vintage gal to another.
