Between running errands and appointments this Summer I have gotten some embroidery finished, but projects are still awaiting to be completed...yes...some fall inspired and...yikes...Christmasy and made some great finds at the mall. I have yet to take pics of the progress or finds..my bad.
Now, I do have a very special...What I Did On My Summer Vacation...to tell you about.
During the past 3 months I have been working with the Ohio Valley Antique Mall to acquire a space in their
Mall.This is my FAV antique mall in Cincy. It is a 65,000 sq. ft. vintage and antique wonderland sprinkled
with OOAK crafts...old and new.
This pic was taken at the front desk
and there are still more vendors to the front left and right of this desk I didn't get in the shot!
Not only are there aisle and aisles with booths and booths to browse
and over 200 cases to check out
they have a couple of small areas for themed displays using various items from assorted vendors.
These are from the Summer..they change almost weekly it seems.
Of course while shopping you do work up a hunger and they have a lovely little Cafe
with yummy sandwiches, hearty soups, scrumptious bakery goods, and refreshing beverages. Beleive it or not they have 2 eating areas filled with even more themed displays with items for sale!!! You can give your feet a break and browse vintage and antique offerings from the comfort of a chair while eating! Okay, I don't know about you, but those are two of my favorite things to do...hehe
Well, since I've showed you around the place a little, it's time to introduce you to
Brown Gingham on the Avenue
My case..#224... is located on the back wall at the end of Phoenix Avenue. I have added other creations since this pic was taken.
I like to invite you to my little Grand Opening this weekend and kick things off with an end of Summer sale. All items are 15% OFF Fri Sept 7th-Sun Sept 9th. Actually the whole mall is having the sale. So, if you're in the Greater Cincinnati area this coming weekend come on over. Plan a whole day or the weekend.
