The red crepe myrtle blows in the afternoon wind. It happens almost every afternoon during the lazy, hazy days of summer. Reminds me of the farm acreage and the woods nearby where we found the posted sign.

The red Hibiscus has really bloomed profusely this year. Reminds me that I should bring the red blooms indoors with a few roses for a bouquet. Add a few ceramic decorator balls and I will have a cozy room.

About

Happy 6th Anniversary, Rocky Springs Vintage

So excited to enter our sixth year of making people happy with vintage. This is what usually happens in the discovery process.

The barn releases the item to me. I inspect the vintage piece, dust the item, look for blemishes and scratches, then look to the web for information on pricing and historical background. I decide what to charge after seeing what others charge and then choose a price that is generally in the middle. Who did the piece belong to? Where did I find it? Can I recall a story about the owner that will move a younger person to buy the item? I tell stories that stir a memory or a reflection inside people. I write a story about the item. I list the item and watch the listing to see if others like it, too. I look for an appropriate shooting place around the eight acres or in the cottage home. I design the set. I shoot. I re-shoot. When the item sells, my husband and I pack the vintage piece carefully so the item arrives safely and soundly to you, the buyer. I miss some of the pieces and refer back to the photograph to recall the piece or the story. I then return to the dairy barn and look for another piece. I can see a little more space in the barn where old items have moved out, really. My closet has a little more space, too.

How about you? How did you get started in vintage? Grandmother, Aunt or special someone get you rolling down the vintage road? Thank that person for the vintage ride.
