Salvage ATL – Holy! What the? F it! I’m doing it.

10 Apr

This Saturday is the Salvage ATL event where my lil’ vintage line {verdigreen} is debuting in the real-space marketplace.

I have mixed feelings of excitement and terror as I consider my presence outside the safety and comfort of the Etsy interwebs.

To try and take my mind off the mounting to-do-list of funnery for the event, I created an Etsy treasury to highlight some of my vendor-mates.

They’re full of unparalleled awesomeness so the curation of their shop pieces had the opposite effect and now I’m feeling even less at ease. So here I sit, sipping Green Tea Ginger Ale which is almost as good as a beer.

Please come visit me, in BOOTH #1 (wh-wh-what?) this Saturday from 11am-6pm & bring me a PBR (the event sponsor – total score) to calm my nerves.

Can’t Sleep – Allergies Win

4 Apr

Insomnia is not something I am EVER afflicted with until tonight after 2 rounds of allergy meds appeasin’ my sneezin’. Today has the potential of being rough. The optimist in me thought since I was up I should be productive so after putzing around on Twitter and FB and Etsy I opted to create a Treasury (a curated collection) loosely based on Game of Thrones. 

While I’m here and since it’s been seemingly difficult to tend to my WP of late, I’d also like to mention that I am besides myself with anxiety (the good kind, if there is such a thing) about the upcoming Salvage ATL event. I am honored to have been invited/accepted onto their list of vendors as I am a mere novice amongst ATL greats in the vintage community. I want to treat this as a learning experience since it’s my first foray into the actual marketplace (versus my virtual vintage {verdigreen} on Etsy where I normally live). But I’m also excited at the possibilities of theming/decorating my booth to attract like-minded collectors and those thoughts paired with the lack of time I have to dedicate to such grand ideas have left me hopeful that I will somehow pull it all together like a magical wedding planner.

So without further ado, I bid you adieu so I can officially begin my day with 3 hours of sleep, 2 itchy eyes, 1 runny nose and unlimited daydreams.
