Another Arizona Shop and a Sale
Before I show you my finds that I brought back from Arizona, I wanted to show you one more shop and another great monthly sale that we discovered!
(Please excuse the photos-they were taken with my phone.)
Last year after my hubby and I shopped the Sweet Salvage Sale (you can read about this year's sale here) we hit many area shops that were recommended to me. This year we did the same.
If you're in Phoenix a must-stop shop is Rust and Roses!
This shop is filled to the brim with amazing goodies!
There's even a huge outside area bursting with delightful eye candy...check out all this industrial goodness!
The owner is such a sweetie! While we were chatting I mentioned that we were staying in Tucson for the rest of our trip, and she told me about a great once a month sale going on that very weekend!
Well, yahoo!! Of course we had to check it out the next day! (My mom and I drug Keith and my dad along with us. They were good sports!)
This monthly sale is called 'Gather-A Vintage Market' and it didn't disappoint!
My parents and I met the owner, Tray, who is an absolute GEM!! (I feel terrible that I didn't get a picture of him but I was so distracted by all of the wonderful treasures, that I didn't think of it until later.)
He was so friendly and helpful and he let us pick his brain about both the creative and business aspects of running the sales. (As shop owners we're always interested in hearing about other proprietor's experiences.)
They are located in a warehouse and there are 8 different vendors who contribute their considerable talent and merchandise to this venture.
They started these sales about a year ago, and are steadily growing in size and in client numbers.
(They recently expanded into another part of the warehouse.)
Tray introduced us to his family who are all involved as well, and to one of his creative designers.
It was truly a delight to meet him and talk with him!
You can feel how passionate he is, and his creative vision is an inspiration!
If you live in the area or will be visiting Tucson, I highly recommend that you visit this fun sale!
Here are more pictures to drool over...
Thanks so much for stopping by!
I promise that I'll be back soon to show you my finds...I won't tease you much longer!
Have a great day :)
