I hope to get this post completed before I pass out from exhaustion. Today my friend Chris and I were selling at the annual Rock and Roll Yard Sale, a street fair/market with vinyl sellers, live music, crafters, and vintage dealers. I’ve spent most of my free time the past few weeks sorting through boxes of stuff that I’ve had for decades as well as pricing and preparing -- with the hopes of clearing out loads in one fell swoop. And I did. We couldn’t have asked for more perfect weather and the crowds were non-stop all day.
With the exception of two right nearby, I didn’t have a chance to visit the other vintage sellers, so no purchases for me today.
I’ve always loved the scarves, linens and jewelry in the shop ‘Carmen & Ginger’ on Etsy, so it was fun to get a quick glimpse of their retro wares.
July purchased this early 1970s striped knit mini by Whistle Stop from me and wore it immediately.
Tezcatlipoca’s Colin Glascoe plum and gold print velvet maxi dress was drop-dead gorgeous.
I didn’t get to see much that wasn’t in a 15-foot radius of my tent. So I was glad that Famous Seamus, the world's mellowest cat who puts in appearances at a number of outdoor events in the area, passed close enough for me to give him a head scratch.
No pictures of me at the Sale, (and I wouldn’t have allowed any as I was too hot and bedraggled). I wore this outfit with a straw hat instead of my flower crown, and tons more jewelry.
I'm linking up to Not Dead Yet Style's Visible Monday and then crashing into bed. Now that this event is over, I do plan to catch up on my blog reading!
