Pumpkins, Halloween Garlands/Buntings & Coin Purses this Weekend at The Checkered Corner

Anita and Patrice of the Checkered Corner are getting ready for Fall.  They have invited me, Isa Creations Vintage, to bring some Halloween handcrafted items to the Checkered Corner this coming weekend located in historic downtown Littleton, 5650 S. Curtice St.  Thanks Anita & Patrice!


Since I sold out of 2 style of Halloween buntings at September's A Paris Street Market, I have been busy creating more of the same style just in time for this weekend.  Visit Checkered Corner's Facebook page here, and their blog here.

I also want to let everyone know my friend Amy, of the Pink Attic Cat, has been busy very packing all her vintage treasures as she prepares to move her shop to a different location.  The Pink Attic Cat will have it's new home just a block away from her old location in historic downtown Littleton.  The shop will RE-OPEN for her annual Holiday Open House.  I will post details as they become available or you can visit the Pink Attic Cat Facebook page for updates here

Here are some photos of Isa Creations Vintage items you will find this Thursday-Sunday at the Checkered Corner.

Fully Re-stocked on these style of Buntings previously sold out.

A Paris Street Market (September) and June's Visit

The last few days have been another whirlwind.  My dear friend June is here visiting from San Antonio, TX.  I picked her up at the airport early on Thursday.  We did not waste a minute.  We were at 3 estate sales by noon.  June was so happy with her vintage treasures.  On Friday we only went to one estate sale.   She purchased a purple transfer-ware soup bowl for me... an extra birthday gift.  I will post a picture next week, I have not photographed it yet. 

My last Paris Street Market was this past June.  I was not a vendor during the months of July and August.  During July we were mostly traveling; however, during August I had to of been extra productive because I have never had so many new items from one show to the next.  It was nice to hear from a few customers at yesterday's A Paris Street Market that they missed me and were happy I was back, especially with new items.

Thankfully June was able to help me get ready.  Many new items needed to be priced and  tagged.  Buntings needed to me measured and tagged.  I was surprised by the volume.  Although I hand-craft all the hand-crafted items, I just set them aside and move on to completing the next item. If June were not here, I would not of slept the night before A Paris Street Market.  June also woke up at 3:45a.m. and we left the house at 4:35a.m.  We setup the booth while it was cold and damp...and dark.  By noon we were hot and sunburn, even me (I rarely sunburn).

I want to thank all of my customers, especially my repeat customers.  I may not know all their names, but I recognize them.  June and I had a great day.  We worked hard but also had fun.  I have to say, not only is June my best friend and surrogate sister, she is also my biggest supporter.  She purchased many of her Christmas gifts from me.   Even before June's large purchase, September's A Paris Street Market was my best ever!  Thanks to everyone who has made that possible!!

Buntings or Garlands - Chalkboard and Vintage Hankies


Buntings or Garlands

Lots and lots of them.

They will all be available this Saturday, September 6th
A Paris Street Market in Aspen Grove

 Chalkboard and Vintage Hankies

This will be extra long post with photos since A Paris Street Market is tomorrow.

 Two separate chalkboard garlands or buntings.  One large enough for Happy or Sweet or Baby.  The other long enough for Christmas, Birthday, Sixteen, etc.  All the chalkboard garlands have been seasoned with chalk and are ready to personalize.

I have created over 20 vintage hankie buntings or garlands.  Most are color themed and two are just white vintage hankies.  This is a sample of them:
