8 Days to go to the Shabby Vintage Junk Extravaganza: Vendor Profile - Hunted & Collected

 OK....Things are ampin' up around here with just 8 days to go until the Shabby Vintage Junk Extravaganza kicks off & I'm juggling a gazillion projects hence my late post tonight....!!

It's with great pleasure I introduce to you my Friend, Callie from Hunted & Collected....!!  Callie & I met through a mutual Friend at the Market last year & have shared some MEMORABLE Junkin' adventures in the short time we've known each other.  Having shared a booth at both Friars Town & Maldon already this year, Callie & I are quite the Odd Couple....By that I mean, Callie is quite refined in her mannerisms & speech while I'm quite the bogan & have been mistaken on occasion for a 'sailor'....hahahahahaha....!

Having seen Callie in action before I can tell you now her booth is gonna ROCK....!

Specialising in Vintage Costume Jewellery, Callie has an AMAZING knack for combining her pieces with rustic, industrial furniture & homewares....EVERY time I see a display Callie's put together I turn a darker shade of green....I tell ya...The girl's got TALENT....!!

One of the things I admire about Callie is her genuine love for the pieces she sells & her extensive knowledge....I find listening to Callie talk about Costume Jewellery enthralling & her passion for her pieces is 'catching'....For example....I NEVER knew I would be interested in Vintage Wooden & Bakelite Jewellery....A few nights in a cabin with Callie in Castlemaine & I was HOOKED....I have a LOVELY collection of my own coming along....THANKS Callie....!!

Speaking of collections, I'm afraid I was quite SHAMELESS when I snuck into Callie's website Hunted & Collected & nicked all these pics....They're ALL pieces I want for myself however, they're really not an adequate representation of Callie's Treasures so I suggest you pop in & see for yourself....!!

I LOVE this little fellow....!
I smile just thinking about owning a piece like this....!!
Lee Stein....Say no more....!!
You can NEVER have too much Lee Stein....!!
Be STILL my beating heart....Appropro dontcha think....By far & away one of my FAVE Callie pieces....!!  And the little lucite fellow below is ADORABLE....!!

Now it's AFTER midnight & I'm about to turn into a freakin pumpkin so I gotta fly....!!

I'll be back tomorrow night with a call for help & advice from my US blog Friends....!

Sleep well everyone, the weekend is upon us....!!!

Cheers for now,
Tamarah :o)
