Trying New Things


Down in the basement of the old Vancouver Academy is a little room stuffed to the brim with vintage finds and oddities of all kinds. Maria's Vintage is catch all for all things collectable and valuable. It is here that I make my fist appearance in the world of vintage consignment. Tucked in a corner are all my small treasures I have collected over the years. All the items I bought, not because I needed but because I liked them and saw an ounce of value in. Hopefully this new endeavor will lead to greater things than just clearing some *junk* out of the closets! 
P.S. I did sadly take a few items out of my etsy shop... but I need a few more items to fill the shelves!




This cookie jar is one of the items in the new shop. 
Just the cutest pink Pyrex style christmas cooke jar. 

P.S. if there is ever anything I show for the shop 
that your interested in... please let me know 
and I will tell you more about it 
and even list it on etsy for you.



I made a handful of these little coaster size signs
 to help create an identity for my little corner.



And with the help of a Martha Stewart Craft tool I made my own sales tags! 

Wish me LUCK!

oh wow, i'm so envious that you've started a small booth. i really want to do that too. my grandmother owns an antique mall, and my parents had booths as i grew up, so i definitely have the bug! there's so much stuff in my house that i don't need but i always say its for the (future) shop! it's smart to begin small with etsy and then a booth... you'll grow from there rather than get overwhelmed. your set up is cute! congratulations on your small business.

please forgive me, but i don't have the hat ready. it has been a crazy week (i'll just say mice, breakpads, broken windows, lost flashdrive=lost assignments etc.) and my mom is coming into town this weekend. i didn't even get to post on my 1st year anniversary for my blog. i shouldn't even by online now! but just had to see if you posted recently!

p.s. your tags are adorable...
