I spent Saturday at the Roadside Relics Vintage Market in Livermore. This was my second time to set up there. You can read about my first trip here and here. A few of the same vendors where there and many more. There were tents set up along both sides this time. And I think all the covered spaces were full with some vendors taking up 2-3 spaces!
As you can tell from the photos, my space does look a little different than last time. I decided to put some painted furniture in to display on. It was all for sale, too, but none of it sold that day. I’ll take it to Treasure Island next weekend and use it again. The Music Man is having fun being my picker and he found all these for me!
The photo to the right is an old card table that I bought at a thrift store a couple of years ago. It’s lightweight and easy to move so I always have it when I need some extra display space. The vintage ironing board came from Mandy. I bought it from her at Room With a Past. It’s great for displaying my signs! The “Gone Fishing” sign is sold out!
The wooden spinning display was found on our junking trip to Berkeley almost 3 years ago. I’ve used it a lot. Of course, I always have my clip board out for signing up for our newsletter! It now has a pen tied to it. I kept losing it.
After looking at these photos I wrote myself a note: “Get longer tablecloths.”
There was just a little space between my long table and the sewing machine cabinet so I used my vintage suitcases to display more jewelry. You can follow my Vintage Suitcases board on Pinterest to see lots more ways to use them! I should really tell you how I became the owner of the suitcase on the left… maybe a future blog post.
Unfortunately, I won’t be at this market next month. It’s the same weekend as Room With a Past. If you see something you want contact me and I’ll either ship it to you or hold it ’til I can get back to Livermore. Come back to the blog tomorrow to see photos from other vendors!
