Lots of Good Changes!!!

  After the March show at my house, Rita and I decided we had out grown this location. So for the last 3 weeks we have feverishly  been looking for a new home to move "The Vintage Marketplace" to.We finally locked into a wonderful rustic country park with room to add more vendors and plenty of parking space! It's called "The Oaks". Still in Fallbrook in a little area called Rainbow, 10 minutes south of  Temecula, off the 15 fwy. Already located on the property is a fabulous restaurant (that people travel far and wide for), a country store, a charming little flower shop, a recycled salvage yard and even it's own little gas station. Anyway we are very excited to become a part of this family of venues. Here is our postcard for June . XO Christie

Here's a peek at our new location.


  1. It sounds wonderful; best wishes in your new location!

  7. Christie,
    I have purchased your work in the past. I just wanted you to know that I have been a fan of yours since YOUR VERY BEGINNINGS, do I dare say how many years???? (Just kidding, my 50's are wonderful). God has truly given you a gift, I think your talent is limitless. I am sending you many blessings and good wishes for your new venture. I hope you will be posting dates of your vintage marketplace, I am looking forward to making a trip from the East Coast. ........Debbie
