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.

The Glitterfest Show in 3 Days!!! "Vintage Spring Garden"Theme












I only had barely a week to get ready for Glitterfest. And knowing what a fabulous show it is , I managed to push out a few new creations. My Theme is "Vintage Spring Garden", kinda spilling over from the Chateau De Fleurs Show , by the way it was the busiest show ever for us, and left me pretty wiped out! Thank God for His Blessings! XO, Christie

My First Rose Painting Class Project














I had sign-ups at the "Vintage Marketplace" and much to my surprise I sold out of the first date Saturday April 30th. So I will be setting another date June 25th after my show . With this rose design I will be able to work with you on light hitting shapes, some shadowing, mixing and muting color and you can go home with a pretty sign!

 A special thanks to all the wonderful vendors and people who came out to support our show, it was the best one yet!  XO, Christie
