Boy does time fly… and it has been so long since we've stopped to write a blog entry. We have been busy flying around as usual, attending shows and traveling around the globe. Rushing between Australia and California and having all sorts of adventures in between!
One of which was our recent trip to San Diego in September, and a chance to visit one of our favorite fairs "The Vintage Market Place" located in Rainbow, Fallbrook. (Isn't that such a dreamy place to have a fair… in a place called Rainbow!) Miss Rose Sister Violet were lucky enough to actually have a booth at The Vintage Market Place last year, but our busy schedule this year meant we couldn't take part sadly. But luckily we had a free day while in San Diego and the chance to visit as customers!
The Vintage Market Place is the beautiful creation of artists Rita Read of Mammabellarte and Christie Repasy of Christie Repasy Designs. Both have put heart and soul into the fair and it can be felt the moment you arrive. Their own magical booths are a treasure to visit and a treasure chest of gifts and art to buy…. as seen in Rita's booth Mammabellarte…
And also Christie's booth… Christie Repasy Designs…
It was such a hot day when we attended but it only made it more fun as the sun sparkled off chandeliers lying in the grass and cold drinks were had in the shade of trees amongst antique treasures and rustic beauty. We met lovely people and caught up with old friends who had been our dear neighbors last year… Grace Abounding, Vintage Bliss, and Touched by Time to name but a few. It is such a treasure of a show, filled with beautiful booths and vendors who bring wonderful collections of antiques and unique art. Jewelry, furniture, artwork, old fabric collections, lace clothing, vintage treasures… it is heaven for lovers of flea markets and anything beautiful.
No matter the weather, it is a beautiful fair to attend and we are so happy that we were able to visit in September. Next time though we plan on visiting with a pick-up truck or van as we could have bought so much more furniture and really gone to town! Fallbrook is only roughly 40 minutes from the heart of San Diego, and Rainbow is such a pretty spot. We had fun exploring the surrounding area and revisiting fond memories from our trip last year. Thank you so much to Rita and Christie for creating such a magical fair… we can't wait to visit again soon!
