Sweet Salvage Trip

I remember when I first started blogging,
I would notice other bloggers would go MIA
from their posting every once in awhile
 and I thought -
wow I would never do that!

I love blogging - why would anyone need a break?!

Well now I understand - this has been a really busy summer and I have slacked off a little but I'm ok with that!

Let me show you what I've been up to...
I just got back last night from one of my little holidays and I am so excited to share it with you now that I'm home!

I went to Scottsdale AZ with Carrie from
The Passionate Home in Langley, and we had the best weekend!

We went down to to the Sweet Salvage Show -
a monthly vintage market that is hosted by
 Kim Rawlins and Katie Hobbs.

These are two of the nicest women I have met on my vintage journey and even though we showed up on their busiest day of the month they took the time to allow Carrie and I to "interview" them
all about their fantastic market!

 Well, I interviewed them - Carrie was off somewhere fooling around -
who does she think she is?!
The ladies put on a four-day show once a month
in a huge warehouse in Phoenix.
Every month is a different theme, which is how they
keep things looking fresh.

This months theme was "Now Showing" and was a tribute to vintage movies and shows -

 everything from Breakfast at Tiffany's...

 to Alice in Wonderland...

It was amazing! Except for Carrie - still fooling around...
Here she is still fooling around - thinking I won't notice,
cause she's blending into the background...

She's lucky I don't fire her...

Back to the beautiful pictures...

Vintage cute!

beautiful displays...

creative merchandising...

Oh, and just when I thought I would switch to video and give you a true feel for the show...she was still fooling around!

Thanks for stopping by - and if you're in the Phoenix area be sure to check out the monthly show at Sweet Salvage!
