May 2014 Vendors: Antiques, Creations & Vintage Galore!!

In our first blog post, we told the story of our show’s founding – a fateful antiquing adventure that resulted in a truck full of treasures and the wild idea to start our own antique show. Now, eight years later, it’s almost impossible to believe how things have changed! While our first show started with only a handful of vendors, we expect more than 100 to participate in the May 3-4 show just three weeks from now.

Our vendors are arguably the most important part of our show – the essential ingredient that make our shows the exciting, lively, one-of-a-kind treasure hunt that they are. While our love of junking and vintage is what got us hooked into the world of antique shows, you could say that it was our vendors that kept us (and you!) coming back for more each year. With their insatiable love of antiques and an unparalleled creative eye, each vendor brings something special to each show. And ultimately, we love nothing more than surrounding ourselves with like-minded antique addicts!!

In our recent Facebook contest post, you told us just how much you love and anticipate our vendors each year with comments like the following:

The little yellow typewriter! I follow them on Instagram! - Tammy Dunehew
Great show every year & amazing vendors all around...but looking forward to seeing the folks @The Rusty Bucket of Camarillo - their great picks, reasonable prices and super friendly service makes me keep going back - Leanne Afetian
Uber Chic, Atelier de Campagne, and Farm Girls Vintage!!!! Woohooo! - Marietta Elizaga-Carlin

We loved hearing from you last week, and wanted to give you a little extra preview of the amazing booths that will be at our upcoming show. Below is just a small sampling of the vendors and products that will make an appearance. Check out the vendors page on our website for a complete list!

TA Vintage Designs is headed by the wonderful Tammy Auther, who creates unique and individual jewelry pieces that are crafted from vintage and antique pendants, charms, brooches, baubles, beads and other found treasures.

The Gentleman Farmer and Gussied Up Antiques are more than ready for the next Speckled Hens Show. They have been scouring the countryside for old farmhouse, vintage country and unique garden pieces. They recently returned from a trip to Northern California with some great finds! For those of you who like old country, vintage farmhouse and a bit of old garden charm, you will find them in booth #106.

Polly Jane’s will be bringing her signature cashmere scarves, flower pins and cashmere headbands! She also has vintage glass insulators on candlesticks and lots of fun new goodies.

American Barn and Wood, a reclaimed lumber yard located in Paso Robles, is ready for the May show. They have an assortment of goodies they will be bringing, including barn wood, barn doors, windows, barn beams for fire place mantels, barn wood furniture, and of course their ever popular barn bits!

Bay Cottage Succulents and Antiques is ready to go! Master Gardener and owner S. Lee Olson will help to open your eyes to the wonder of succulents. Succulents are easy to grow, amazingly beautiful and offer endless varieties. With summer coming, what a wonderful time to learn about water conservation planting!
