Ruffles and Rust: The spring, 2012 edition
By: A CatEyeGirl  -  5/14/2012

Without exception we have a short list for some of our favortie vintage markets / funky junk shows and Ruffles and Rust: A vintage market to inspire is one of them.

Here's the pics from the spring edtion of Ruffles and Rust . . . if you missed Ruffles and Rust in May, the fall edition is in October.  October 19-20, 2012 to be exact!

Screamin' 1950s . . . we have NO discipline when it comes to color and ability to find our inspiration in white or muted colors.  We love color!

Pyrex . . . vintage + useful + practical + pristine = inspiring!  So is that equation like the funky junk version of what we learned in college algebra . . . who said we would never use it?

Go Outside and Play!

The picture is a little dark . . . however, what you are looking at are Edwardian hats, 1940s shoes,  a 1920s "flapper" top and matching flapper hat . . . auh, vintage clothing is FUN!

Our model, Lucy, who has been a loyal servant this past year, was sold to another vendor . . . as always, EVERYTHING in our space is for sale!  There are never fixtures or tags that read NFS (not for sale) in our mall or show spaces.  Every single thing is always for sale!

It's spring and time to play and live outside . . . in the garden, on the porch!

Fun stuff . . . lots of cool vintage outdoor furniture.  Agent 99 took the 1930s glider with four visible coats of peeling paint in technicolor to two shows . . . it came home twice which she took as a sign that maybe she should keep it and pair it with its twin that lives on her patio.  You had your chance, twice!  So if you want it, you will have to pry it out of her life and haul if off of her patio!

That's it . . . join us in October, in Monroe, for the fall edition of Ruffles and Rust.  We'll be there, will you?
