on the edge of town....
is a thrifter's paradise...
and I now have a booth there!
It is called Rustiques, run by Liz and David....
He's the creative mind with great decorating, thrifting and upcycling skills, while she has a head for business. Together they have created a huge emporium of eclectic vintage treasures. I am so happy to have a booth in this fun place.
Here's a peek at the inside of Rustiques, and then I will show you my booth.
I want this door!
I want these clocks!
This is the White Room and it is filled with gorgeous items all different shades of white. It is the room where David shows his great decorating style.
And just behind this mantel is the room where my booth is. I have half of the room right now but hope to someday soon take it all!
The great rust table is not mine, it is the room divider for now. The items in front of it are mine.
If you are local in Wayne County, New York, and want to visit, Rustiques is located at 235 Murray St., Newark. They are open 9-5 Tuesday-Sunday year round. I like those hours! There is a Salvation Army next door and two other thrift stores on the street so it makes for steady traffic.
David said there is already a following there and Rustiques has become a destination for those visiting the area. He is constantly thrifting and picking for great items to fill the warehouse up. Before I rented a booth I would run into him at barn sales and have watched him in action.
I got a peek at some of his stash behind closed doors and there is no shortage of great treasures still to be put out.
Although winter is not the best time for thrifting with limited places to pick, I am always looking for new things to fill my booth.
My Etsy shop (on the sidebar) is going great and I am constantly re-filling it to stay above 500 items. Better SEO that way!
In the Spring I will decide if I am going back to Ye Olde Schoolhouse Country Store, closed for the winter. It was my first adventure in retail. You can read about it in my post titled Spreading My Wings.
I see a lot of pickin' and thrifting in my future to keep up and I couldn't be happier about that!
