Vintage Marketplace Fun


Rita Reade’s and Christie Repasy’s Vintage Marketplace Show is one of the best, bringing together vendors with gorgeous booths, stunning displays and absolutely wonderful vintage and antique wares with lots of eager shoppers four times a year in the tiny town of Rainbow, California. Last weekend was no exception, I absolutely LOVE going to this great show. Below are some of the pictures I took before the serious shopping began….you will see, beyond compare!

All the booths are decorated to the nines….there is so much to see, and be inspired by!  This time the theme was Beachy.

Each spot a little treasure trove of loveliness.

Beautiful flowers planted in such imaginative containers.

Everywhere you look there is another creative idea, beautiful piece of vintage furniture, and a whole booth filled with treasures.


A shabby lover’s dream.

One of the most fun booths there…loving the giant paper flowers and watering can with garden hose.

A beautiful planted container by Rita Reade.

Wonderful display, look at those cute little signs made of scrabble letters.

Great display using an old bed spring.

Lace, mannequins, rhinestones and jewelry, how can this go wrong?  Loving every thing in this display.

An old English Tea pot Cozy and sweet Victorian dishes…in pink!

Shabby Chic Pink goodness, love this crackled, old paint.

There are so many more photos of this fabulous show, I will share more later this week, come back and see more and be inspired…I was.

    1. Hi Debra, you are so welcome. Come back for more, these vendors really worked so hard at showing off their offerings, and their displays and vignettes were wonderful.

    Looks like fun, Lidy! I met Christie at a show in San Diego a few years ago and she is really lovely as well as super talented! Glad to see she is still doing great~
