4 Days to go to the Shabby Vintage Junk Extravaganza: Vendor Profile - The Pink Poodle

WOW....Can you believe there are just 4 x SLEEPS TO GO the Shabby Vintage Junk Extravaganza launches into the Vintagesphere....Well maybe 4 x sleeps for our lovely Customers however, from the emails & phone calls I've received today....It's unlikely our Vendors will enjoy THAT many sleeps....hahahahaha....Yes indeed we're all FLAT OUT LIKE LIZARDS DRINKIN' creating some Vintage Magic & sleep....??  Well lets just say sleeps a luxury we can indulge in after....  :o) !!

Now I know your ITCHING to meet some more of our SVJ Vendors so without further ado, I'd like to introduce you to Andrea from The Pink Poodle....!!

I received an email one evening months ago from the LOVELY Alicia from Time Worn Style with Andrea's details simply advising if I was still looking for Vendors for the SVJ-X, Andrea would be a PERFECT fit....!!

I called Andrea & we arranged to meet & I knew as soon as I opened the door & saw her smiling face we were going to get along like a house on fire....A few minutes into our meeting, I was mentally HUGGING Alicia for sending Andrea my way....!!

Having owned & operated her own Gift & Homewares store for many years, Andrea has an obvious flare for display, enjoying the creative process involved in creating visually interesting & beautiful vignettes....!

With an interest rooted in textiles, Andrea enjoys upcycling laces & trims & LOVES experimenting with dyes....Having visited Andrea's home & seeing her pieces up close, I know her Customers will adore her work....!!

Now I've popped into Andrea's YUMMY blog & NICKED some of my FAVE pics for you to enjoy all of which will be available at the SVJ-X....!

YUMMY vintage suitcases given the 'pastel treatment'....

EXQUISITE dyed doilies, buttons & bits....

Childrens hankies from yesteryear....!

TO DIE FOR decorative white painted frames in all sizes.

I know our Shabby Friend Rachel would LOVE these....  :o) !!

** sigh **

I ADORE this sweet little ladder....!

This pic is SO perfect....LOVE the Crinoline Lady....!

Indded I do....!!!

Love love LOVE this vignette....!!!!

You can NEVER have too many sewing drawers....NEVER E-V-E-R....!!

I hope you enjoyed meeting Andrea & viewing a small sample of her Treasures....I know she's looking forward to meeting all of you....!

I'll be back tomorrow to continue the countdown & introduce you to some more SVJ-X Vendors....!!

Cheers for now,
Tamnarah :o)

    I want to feature you on the Junk Bonanaza blog...would you be up for it? How about a little interview? Or would you like to guest post about coming ALL THE WAY from Australia?

    Email me when you have a moment (ha,ha,ha!)

  5. I love that "FLAT OUT LIKE LIZARDS DRINKIN'"! That's me here trying to catch up on my blog surfing, somehow I've slouched down so far in my chair I'm horizontal except for my head, not very comfortable actually.
    Lovin' all the vendor posts, best of luck on the Extravaganza!

  6. Ooooh I have been followers of both Alicia and Andrea for ages and I am so jealous of you all being able to well "get your gear out" and have fun at your extravaganza!! So unfair....I will be with you all in spirit though lol, Katherine XX

  7. All so beautiful, I so wish I could be there!
