Busy Busy Busy!

It has been a huge month for us here at the Vintage Shed. We are coming to the end of our 7 day a week opening and it has been a whirlwind for us- we have been so busy and met so many new people, some have found us by accident driving past, there has been lots of lovely design files readers and of course our regular customers, who we love and have become more like friends.

So now we go back to opening Thursday to Sunday, which is kind of nice as there is a small staff here and we have all worn out our welcome with grandparents, babysitters etc to mind our kids while we are down here working and having fun..

A few snaps from today at the shed

Although we back to normal hours we do open by appointment also, give us a call and we can arrange a suitable time..

Back with some more photos next week !

Monday 24th January

I am back from holidays and finally can update everybody with some new stock photos.. There are so many great things  here at moment - I really need to put blinkers on when I walk up and down the aisle's because I really want everything!

The pictures don't really do the bike justice, it is vintage and so cute.. I have to disclose that I did make the car cushion!  I love the vintage rubber stamps , and the printers blocks- like I said blinkers !

We have had a great response to the design files post and had lots of lovely new customers over the weekend, looking forward to meeting lots more..

This our last week of 7 day trading ,including Australia day,  February we go back to opening Thursday to Sunday..

The vintage shed was featured on one of my favourite blogs this week   Such an honour for the vintage shed to get a mention on a Melbourne design blog, that features the coolest places from Australia and around the world, needless to say we were all very excited!

Also we have our monthly farmers market this Saturday , and hopefully some sunshine ( the last two have been raining) 

I am heading to the beach for a few days rest, hopefully next week I will be back with some photos.

The Vintage shed is celebrating one year of business today ! This day a year ago , we opened our doors with just 5 stall holders. Since then we have expanded twice, have a list of 50 people waiting for stall space and host a monthly farmers market.

January has been one of our best months ever and 2011 will hopefully include some new stall space and lots of other exciting things.

Our Christmas display was a huge success and we sold nearly everything that was in it, so following on from that Beck and Jodee took a bit of inspiration from summer for our latest display ( even though it is very wet and soggy down here today) 

I am having a few issues with my computer at home , so apologies for the lack of new stock photos.. Hopefully I will have some in the next few days..

As I type this two of our lovely stall holders Marcus and Bernadette gifted us with a lovely birthday present ! Thanks Marcus and Bernadette, so very thoughtful of you, and it will save Sue and I raiding the fridge this afternoon for chocolate !


Vanessa and the girls are really excited that the Lindy charm school for girls is coming to the Vintage Emporium for a workshop on the 5th March  9.30am -12.30pm.
