This was in Friday's paper -- a preview for the sale (click here to read it online).
|I took this with my cell phone, but you get the picture. Oh, and|
the Boonton shop being referred to is Savannah Hope Vintage.
I bought a bunch of hand-bound journals from Jillian Zoltner, jewelry from Gal Pals and from Susan Buteau (including evil eye bracelets for the girls), and a cute crocheted kitty shaped purse for W's niece, and a little purse and fingerless gloves from Cat's Crochet Corner. I snacked on some really, really good cookies by Sugar Lips Bakery (and plan on ordering more), and also picked up a revamped comic book necklace and a pair of OMG! So cool! plastic navy handgun earrings by Red Delicious Things. I want to wear them every day.
My favorite blog reader, crafter, and good friend, ADeM was there selling her stuff from her shop, Savannah Hope Vintage. She carries the most inspirational handmade, repurposed items; I ordered a Frida Kahlo doll from her. She had her awesome handbags, soaps (that I adore), and a bunch of fun new stuff. (More to come (big stuff) on Savannah Hope Vintage, so keep posted.) Retro Rocket Girl was there with a rolling rack full of vintage dresses, tops, all sorts of clothing. Shoes, too, and really cute flowers for your hair.
W and I were there selling our Denville note cards. Lots of our friends came to visit, and some brought their children, which we always enjoy. We even made plans with our friend to go see the George Condo exhibit at the New Museum. Such a great day.
Last night, I hung the art for the Love Is show that opens on Saturday night. I was hanging the work from all day, until near bedtime, and all that time in the gallery was really interesting. W came to help me hang the bigger pieces, and his help was invaluable. One of the artists, Marco, who was there to simply pick up one of his paintings, ended up helping another artist who came into the gallery upset over getting a flat tire. He'd never met her before, but immediately went outside to her car (in below freezing temps) to put on her spare. The night was an interesting one, to say the least. Ultimately, I went home to W and within hours, in the comfort of his presence, I fell fast asleep. It's been a long but successful weekend.
The Love Is Opening Reception will be held on Saturday, from 5 - 8 p.m. at The Gallery at River's Edge and is open to the public. The Gallery at River's Edge is located at 106 Broadway, Denville, NJ 07834.
