Okay, wow, HEY EVERYBODY! For the past few weeks my mind has been 20% Old Navy, 10% worrying about school, and 70% Pop shop. This past weekend was the big event, and although I'm sad it is over with, I am also relieved (and really, really tired). I can't even begin to describe how wonderful and magically the whole weekend was. I met some really amazing vendors and customers, and ugh, it was just perfect! This event really gave me hope for my business. I always doubt myself, because I don't sell that much vintage clothing in my booth, but slowly and surely it is catching on! It makes me so happy that there are young people appreciating the same things I do. I decided to bring a lot of things I've made, too (flower crowns, pom-pom crowns, pins, etc.), AND PEOPLE LOVED IT! (which was the most surprising tbh).
The big face pins are the newest product for the Mad Mod Shop. I did them as an experiment, but holy crap I completely sold out the first day!
F is For Frank had some BEAUTIFUL jewelry and I seriously regret not getting anything from her!
Anitantique Vintage had the most amazing pieces from the 1950s and 60s. I had to psychically stop myself from buying all of her vintage lingerie, flower enamel pins, and purses.
Okay, so Bearmojo is literally the coolest shop ever. These furry friends are made by life-long couple, Andrea and Todd, who are also the cooliest. I ended up buying a wallet from them (HOW COULD I NOT RESIST?! I named him Alfonso, awww), and talking about Michigan's love for guns, Jack White, taxidermy, and many other things. It's a shame they live in Indiana!!
Heather from Lone Star Vintage was definitely one of my favs. Not only did she trade me a bitchin' psychedelic maxi dress for a pom-pom crown, but we talked about vintage clothing throughout the whole weekend!
Nothing But A Pigeon is kind of a bad ass if you haven't already noticed. She takes taxidermy to an all new level by making it cruelty-free with the magic of yarn! This was one of those vendors where I had to physically stop myself from buying EVERYTHING. But I do plan on getting a custom order from her sometime soon for my log lady cosplay (more details soon!).
The best customer in the world // my outfit 2nd day (I was sort of a hot mess day 2 so there's not a lot of photos of me haha)
How was everyone's weekend?
