I have come across something rather wonderful that I’m excited to share with you – especially if you sew!
On Friday night, my husband and I popped into Fancy Tiger Crafts and my eyes were drawn to this: (pardon the quality of the photo, my phone is acting up)eVINTAGEpatterns has created Downton Abbey style patterns to coordinate with Downton Abbey fabric by Andover. The 1920’s are in full swing what with last year’s Gatsby and now Downton entering this time period. 1920’s memorabilia can be difficult to find so, creating it yourself makes a terrific option. It is rumored that some of the pieces used on Downton Abbey are authentic and, therefore, not able to be washed. Imagining the cast in beautiful, but stinky 1920’s era gowns creates quite a picture, doesn’t it? I don’t see Maggie Smith tolerating that, do you?

Candidness aside, eVINTAGEpatterns offers beautifully illustrated pattern booklets from the 1920’s thru the 1970’s. Loveliness like this is not to be missed!
Happy New Year! I’m stealing a hashtag from Instagram today to bring you my latest sale information. I learned the tag from @jasondominy, a swell guy who posts very useful and (often yummy) pictures and information. Point is, 2D to 3D is when you meet someone in real life whom you follow on social media. Well, here’s an opportunity to meet and shop Meteor Vintage as well as several other great local vendors on February 8th:
There is also a Facebook page for the SweetheART Market here. Please join the Facebook page and share this information so that we can have as many folks there as possible shopping for their sweethearts. Solo for Valentine’s Day? Trust me, with the deals at these events there are lots of good-looking single ladies and men of various ages out shopping whom you may meet over a vintage Fire-King coffee mug, artisan marshmallow, terrarium, wine charm or one-of-a kind handmade item. Or, let me match you with the vintage item you’ve been looking for! Mention this post and get 10% off one item with me the day of the event. I’d love to meet you!
Did you miss the opportunity to shop with me last weekend? Good news! I have another booth coming up on Saturday the 14th! Come see me 10:00a-5:00p at The EXDO Hall, 3545 Larimer Street, Denver, Colorado.

Support your local economy, buy great gifts & enjoy a stress free shopping experience away from the big-box stores… how can you go wrong!?!” (quote courtesy of the Denver Post)
My last few weeks have been filled with thoughts of the Small Business Saturday Artisan’s Market. I was going to prepare a list of the vendors selling with me on Saturday, but someone has beat me to it in the link above!
Small Business Saturday was created by the American Express Company in 2010 and is celebrated every year on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. This year, Small Business Saturday is on November 30th.
Here is a sneak peek at some of the items I will have for sale on Saturday:
Next weekend, I am setting up shop at the Larimer Street Swap Meet hosted by MegaFauna and Cash From Clutter. This is my first foray into selling my vintage finds face to face to the public and I am beside myself with excitement! If you’re in Denver, please come by, shop and say, “Hello!”
