Ho ho - did you see what I did there? My shop has popped up in my old trunk!
In order to complete the pop up shop I am going to add some writing to the inside of my trunk lid and tra la la there you have it! I have been kindly asked if I might have a stall at a local vintage fair so started to collect some bits together. The usual dilemmas regarding a) would it be good enough b) what style/era to go for.
So these photos only show one possible 'genre' (fancy!) - I could not decide on just embroidered linens, just fabrics, just 1960s/70s, just children's, just books, just things that I have made.....
So here is the first version of the pop up shop - I must add an apology in here. At Christmas I thought that I had sold a tin that had purses and assortments in by mistake....I was sorting through some old suitcases today and found them all in there. Humble apologies though that tin did have some nice badges in...
So I have been able to add some embroidered purses and miles of vintage hand embroidered bunting into the mix. Sifting through the 'Cupboard of Wonders' and taking a hard look at children's things - we have enjoyed them all over the years but time to move I think.
Too fuddy duddy?
See - an entire shop housed in an old suitcase - ruddy marvellous (the idea not the contents!)
Pity that it is a little too heavy to fit onto my bike - how delicious it would all look together and then I could tra la la along the sea front plying my wares (steady...)
Just need to add a bit of trim to the edges and during the night I thought of fixing in a little shelf into the lid.....don't worry I have thought it through. In my head everything always looks great - the reality often sadly differs.
Thank you as always for not posting elsewhere (Pinterest take note)
Thoughts and comment gratefully received as always
Coming up next week....how to recover a recovered trunk....
