clover market, june 2011

Monday, June 6, 2011

After the disappointment of a rainy Art Star show, I lucked out and was able to nab a spot in a lovely local show in Ardmore, PA this weekend called the Clover Market.
It's a smaller 60-vendor event that has shows one Sunday a month during spring and fall.
Unlike a lot of local shows, this one has a definite point of view: vintage! If you know me at all, you know I'm a sucker for vintage.
My neighbors down the aisle, freshvintage, showed up in a Tastycake truck and unloaded a perfect little 1940's homestead.
Poppy & Bean
Just the sweetest mismatched china & silverware ever from Poppy & Bean. Colleen's vignettes remind me so much of my cousin's wedding in Vermont and her selection of vintage clothing looks like it's right out of Brooklyn.
Brandywine View Antiques
Some awesome salvage from Brandywine View Antiques. They had so many great corbels and accent pieces with patina. I was sorely tempted...
Cherry Acres
At first I thought this large trough-like piece from Cherry Acres was some kind of African artifact, but turns out it's a dough bowl for makin' lots of bread. Totally American.
Circa Dee
I was actually too busy to venture beyond my aisle, but my husband is very good with the camera and went sight-seeing for me. What a cool scale from Circa Dee! I feel like I'm back in Lucketts, VA.
Salvation Nation
And some fun vintage broaches from Salvation Nation.
a lovely, little shop
Even sellers of new items, like this quirky jewelry from a lovely, little shop, displayed their products with vintage flair.
Kristen Solecki
All the vintage was rounded out by a sprinkling of modern, but handmade things like these original prints from Kristen Solecki which definitely have that indie feel.
Real Fruit Jewelry
My kids were enthralled by this jewelry made from dehydrated fruit coated in resin by Real Fruit Jewelry.
Marie's Soap Co.
Enticing handmade soaps tied up with string by Marie's Soap Co.
Cool belt buckles from joeyfivecents displayed in old narrow drawers of some kind- from a sewing table, maybe?
Not sure who's bucket this was, but my husband sure knows what I like. He ought to by now, I guess. It's our 13th wedding anniversary today!
And here he is minding the booth for me. Would you buy a onesie from this character?

The next Clover Market will be on Sunday, September 18th. See you then!

Loved your booth! I was lucky to have a nice "neighbor" seller watch my tent for a bit so that I could walk around. I loved your set up and your items - really beautiful! --Jen (@babeecrafts)
