The Summer started off with a bang and I visited the East coast three times in six weeks! Needless to say I am finally catching my breath…again. :) Updates to the website and web store along with more blog posts coming soon!
May & June were a whirlwind with Brimfield, The Country Living Fair & The Vintage Bazaar. It is wonderful to have the opportunity to travel but in the midst of it all my husband and I moved so we are happy to be home.
I want to share some fun details of our road trips out East!
Brimfield Tweetup Event
This year I not only attended the Brimfield Tweetup event, I had the opportunity to be a part of it. I furnished the tent with vintage chaise lounges, couches, tables, chairs and lighting. Gretchen Aubuchon and Shane Inman of Fashion + Décor put on this amazing event and this year was definitely the best yet! It was Over The Top! Benjamin Moore was one of the sponsors along with Robert Allen and Rue La La. Benjamin Moore launched their new Williamsburg line while we were at the event so I had the pleasure of painting with some of the fabulous new colors!

Shane Inman designed the tent and the details were amazing the including his custom-made rope chandeliers.
The bar was adorned with 144 bottles showcasing the new Benjamin Moore Williamsburg line.
My beautiful and sweet Mom Edna was with me in Brimfield. She enjoyed the tent too!
The Fabulous Warren Bobrow Mixologist Extraordinaire made yummy cocktails for everyone.
While the Tweetup event was happening we also set up shop along the main drag of the Brimfield Antique market with WorthPoint. We were setup in front of Francesco’s Italian restaurant and I think we tried everything on the menu!
If you aren’t familiar with WorthPoint then you should be! They are an online information company that has become one of the world’s leading resources for researching and valuing art, antiques and collectibles.
I recently partnered with them because it is a tool I use just about every single day! WorthPoint bridges the gap between modern technology and the antique and vintage world. Collectors will not only find WorthPoint's data to be amazingly useful, but it will also help increase their bottom line. I am very happy to be partnering with such a technologically savvy company.
