Vintage Trifles Halloween

I can hardly believe it has been seven years since we started the Halloween Bootique! Thanks to all who have attended and supported my love for creating seasonal décor and an entertaining atmosphere to display it. I so enjoyed seeing your reactions and giggles. It made my heart happy.

Many of you have asked if you have missed my annual Halloween Bootique, and the short answer is no.  Through the years we have changed things up a bit. We have gone from a cozy intimate show in my home to the big extravaganzas at Historic Deepwood. Well, it’s time to mix it up again, and I wanted to let you know what’s in the works.

What’s Ahead
I have moved into a time in my life where the time and energy to create everything for this seasonal show are more than I have available - and I am sure some of you can relate! This does not mean, however, that I am abandoning the whimsies and creative ideas that live in my head and just waiting to become “real”.  So how to best share the lighthearted ghoulies and Halloween treasures with you all? Etsy might be an option, but I don’t enjoy the shipping process. I thought about having a small space in an “antique mall” but that would still require toting, moving and setting up.

Maybe something new . . .
During recent conversations with my pal Casey we discussed plans for her upcoming shop in Springfield and she asked if I would like a home for my seasonal creations at Rescued Living. 

It’s the perfect solution – no big show to plan, no space to keep organized. I get to focus on creating magical pumpkin princesses, glamorous gourds and bewitching treasures. Pure bliss!

Spooktacular Goodies Available Soon!

Vintage Trifles Halloween will now be exclusively at Rescued Living in Springfield, Oregon.  Don’t miss the opening of this new shop that offers the perfect blend of re-purposed, salvaged and, of course, rescued furniture and home décor creating an Industrial/Chic vibe. Warm and cozy . . . with an edge. Proprietor Casey Boyd is bringing her unique look to a wonderful, little antiquing hub in Springfield.

 I will be on hand so come and visit!  Event info below.
