Dreamy Vintage Junk Shop {Ideas for Decorating Your Own Booth!}

Are you like me? Do you dream of owning your own shop one day? Do you have a board on Pinterest with ideas for making it all pretty-like? I have been really dreaming big lately and putting myself out there for new opportunities! As you know, I have a booth in downtown Burlington where I sell my vintage junkie finds and painted furniture, but I want more!!

Ideas for Junk Vintage Show

Ya’ll remember when I did the Salvage Sisters show a couple weeks ago?! It was so much fun! Heather and Hannah are such sweet gals! I had a conversation with Heather telling her that I was living vicariously through her. She is living  my DREAM! So, until I have my own shop… I thought I would share some more pics with you from the show… so many ideas and inspiration for those of you with a shop… or for the dreamers out there like me!!

Salvage Sisters Ideas for Junk Show

From the minute you walk in the door at the Salvage Sisters… you know what you are in store for! A whole lot of vintage and a whole lot of junk! Shabby goodness! Farmhouse finds! Rusty relics! Chippy furniture! A little bit of everything and it is organized so well… you feel like you are travelling through a mecca of timeless treasures!! This is the front foyer…

Ideas for Flea Market Booth or Vintage Show

Many of you loved this idea when I shared it on Facebook… old spools for jewelry and scarves!! So for those of you who asked me to put it in a post so you could pin it… here you go!!

Old Spools for Display

In the main part of the shop… lots of painted furniture sits beneath a huge pergola! Old bicycles and vintage finds fill in the gaps.

Also on the main area is where my Junkie Paint is sold! A cute little chalk sign let’s people know to pay at the paint table.

Did you see my DIY Metal Bunting Banner? So cute right? And remember my ‘lil table was a curbside find… from two houses down! EEeeek! But she looks sweet with all my paint on top!

Vessels like old bathtubs and chicken feeders are filled with vintage linens and tea towels.

    These pictures make me drool! Of course at my age, I sometimes do that anyway!! Lol. Love all of these things.

  2. Very nice display’s.

  3. Love these pictures! We have a lot of the same dreams and I enjoy living some of them through you. I have enjoyed watching your blog grow in the short time I have been following…you should be so proud of yourself:)

  4. I was wondering if you could point me in the right direction to find the “plate lady” or “dish lady” or whatever it is called. They decorate with plates on the walls, I thought it was going to be featured this past Weds on Vintage News Junkie or some site and I can’t ever find it. I like plates and saucers in displays, even platters in displays on the wall. I thought it could be on Vintage News Junkie this past Weds. I enjoy looking at the vintage junk and how you find them and prepare them. Thank you for any info you could give me.

    • Hi Linda! I’m afraid, I’m not sure what you are referring to. :/ I’ve never heard of the plate lady or dish lady. I’m sorry… I wish I could be more help. But I am glad you stopped by and I hope to see you here at Vintage News Junkie again soon!! 🙂

  5. Love the new store!!! Good luck!

  6. Oh, this looks like a fun place to get lost in on a Saturday afternoon! Love all the beautiful displays, and of course, your Junkie Paint table!
