Holiday 2017 Updates!

2017 just flew by, and it’s time for the holiday season!  We’ve got lots of great gift items and kitschmas classics, and we’re ready to bring them to you!  We’ll be participating in two shows this November –

The Pittsburgh Vintage Mixer – now in it’s 10th season, PVM brings together dozens of regional sellers for the best vintage party in town!  Find details about this year’s November 3rd and 4th show at the Teamster’s hall in Lawrenceville here.

We’ll also be attending Boheme Pittsburgh’s Pre-Holiday Market at Spirit in Lawrenceville on Sunday, November 19th.

Can’t make these shows?  Don’t worry – as always, we’ll be bringing kitschmas and collectables down to E.N. Miller Antique Mall in Verona by the end of the month to get ready for our big December sale!

We want to take a moment to say how thankful we are to all of our customers throughout the year – you guys are the best and we hope you are having a fabulous fall!

Holiday Happenings!

Kitschmas Chaos!

Kitschmas Chaos!

Kitschmas chaos has arrived at E.N. Miller Antique Mall in Verona, PA – we’ve dropped off lots of holiday items and will be bringing even more down this Friday, including an aluminum Christmas tree, ceramic light-up trees, elves, and more!  We’re fully stocked for all your gift-giving needs, too – from midcentury classics to 1980s nostalgia, we’ve got a little bit of everything down in space E-11 on the top floor.  We’re also keeping our Etsy shop fully stocked, so if you’re looking for clothing and accessories from the 1940s – 1970s, you can find it there!

We’re going to be taking a break from November 11 – November 20, so we’re sad to say we’ll be missing this fall’s Pgh Vintage Mixer, which will be held at Spirit in Lawrenceville on Saturday, November 19th!  We hope you all will go out and support Pittsburgh’s awesome vintage scene – it is sure to be a groovy time!  We’re working on our December schedule, so you’ll have the opportunity to shop our stock somewhere in the ‘Burgh, we’re sure of it.  Our Etsy shop will be on vacation from the 11-20 as well, but we’ll be back (with lots of new goodies) later in the month.

It’s that time of year where we reflect upon what we’re most thankful for – and, as usual, we’re thankful for this awesome and supportive community of buyers and sellers that allows us to do what we love!  We want to thank everyone who has supported us this year, both online and IRL – we love you guys!  Happy holiday season!

New Space, Same Place!

bannerWe’re happy to announce we’ve moved to an even bigger and better space at E.N. Miller Antique Mall over here in Verona, PA – come see what we’ve got in stock!  We’ve been talking a brief break from heavy picking to get our current stock organized and showcased both at Miller’s and online – so look forward to new items popping up on the regular!  We’re ready for cooler temps, fall fashions, and, as always, fabulous finds – and of course, don’t forget that Kitschmas is on the way!

Pittsburgh Vintage Mixer Pop-Up at East End Brewing!

V__4348(1)Come see us on Saturday, August 20th at the Pittsburgh Vintage Mixer Pop-Up at East End Brewing!  We’ll be bringing some great summertime goodies – and we’ll be set up the next morning at the Tour-Ed Mine Fleatique, so you’ll have two chances to shop with us this August.  If you can’t make it to the Pop-Up or the Fleatique, stop by our space at E.N. Miller Antique Mall in Verona or check out our Etsy shop!

In the Summertime, When the Weather is Hot

V__4B09The summer is flying, and July is here!  We’ve been busy stocking up – new items include some phabulous phones that will be coming with us to the July 17th Tour-Ed Mine Fleatique, more clothing in our Etsy shop, and lots more housewares in our space at E.N. Miller Antique Mall in Verona!  We want to thank everybody who has bought furniture from us lately – we’re actually on the lookout for kitchen tables, since we can’t seem to keep them in stock!

When we’re not out picking and buying, we’re out working on our 1966 Serro Scotty and our 1972 Shasta 1400 travel trailers – there’s always something they need from us!  Also, this year Arlo is managing two bee hives that are doing wonderfully, but need lots of attention.  In our downtime, we’ve been hanging out at the 90 year old pool down the street.  This is our favorite time of year – estate sales every Saturday, flea markets every Sunday, fresh vegetables on the table, and sunscreen in my handbag.

Come see us in space 122 at the Tour-Ed Mine Fleatique in Tarentum on the third Sunday of every month, all summer.  Pray for sun, and say hi when you’re there!  We hope you’re having a healthy and happy Summer season!
