What's on your porch?

One of the fun things about blogging is going to be able to show you the inventory coming with me to the next couple of shows.  Dustin, my son and business partner, likes to make your shopping experience a pleasurable one by creating vignettes, which we then try to recreate at the shows.  We start before each show and set up a "store" on my porch and add as we buy.  We move things around and photograph each time new things are added to see what they look like.  What we try to do is to come up with themes and then buy around each theme to make it fun..the thrill of the hunt! 
Our next show will be at the Rose Bowl on September 12, 2010 - again in space J-30!   Come by and see us!  If you are looking for something special or see something in a photo, don't hesitate to let us know.  This is just a sneak peak of our "porch store" as of today.
We are working on getting our website up and running, but in the meantime if you like something, email us and we can arrange to have it at a show or deliver it.   Be sure to click on the picture to enlarge.


  1. Yeah!!! Welcome to blog world Kathee. xo Judy

  2. Hi Kathee,
    I love the idea that you set up a store on your porch before the event, what a great idea! I saw your comment over at Fifi's so I thought I'd come take a look. Your garden is beautiful, as are your items. Happy Labor Day weekend and welcome to Blog Land, you'll love it.

  3. I would be honored to be added to your sidebar silly! You are doing so well I am so happy for you. I will add you also when I figure out how to do it, its been so long since I've blogged. xoxo

  4. Hi Kathee,
    I would be honored to be on your sidebar! I think it's nice you're letting people know you want to have them on your blog, I did that too when I first started and it's always nice to know where your blog's showing up out there and quite polite (if I say so myself ;)

    I am hoping to talk my daughter into going to Remnants with me... not quite sure how far it is from here but will check it out. You'd love Alameda, so many wonderful people, both vendors and shoppers. Have a great holiday weekend!

  5. Thank you Cheryl and Tracie! xo Have a beautiful weekend :) kathee

  6. Thanks for stopping by to introduce yourself. I am honored that you like my blog because with the looks of all the great stuff on your porch, you have excellent taste and style. I wish I had an area to do a setup before a show, but alas all my space is full of junk and would take too long to rearrange. I'll add you to my sidebar and look forward to following you on your journey of flea markets and shows.

    So glad you liked Monticello's. I'm soooo excited to have a space there for their Fall Premier Show and have been very busy getting ready.

    Good luck with your blog and if you have time you might want to consider posting for WW. It will be a great way to get your name out there.

    Hope you are having a wonderful weekend.
