Vintage Glasses + Flea Market Finds!

Friday, March 23rd, 2012

Hi everyone, thanks so much to all of you who linked up to the Spring Craft Link Party yesterday, I’m enjoying all that creativity you shared! There’s over 300 links to fantastic projects, be sure to check them out!  Today I’d like to give a shout out to one of my favorite stylists Mr. Matthew Mead and thank him for allowing me to be a (small) part of his latest publication Flea Market Finds.

Matthew asked me to contribute to the publication with my most favorite vintage find so I chose to share about my mid century Empoli colored champagne glasses!  Read the whole story of why they’re so important to me on page 7.

You’ll see a few other favorite bloggers featured too, hey there’s Kim and Marian! Turn the page for even more peeks at favorite finds by other stylists and bloggers too.

My Matt and I snagged those champagne glasses on a visit to a shop in the West Village in NYC called The End of History.  We were so inspired by all the imported colored glass we discovered that we bought ourselves those glasses ten years ago – they’re one of my most favorite things on earth.  I popped into the shop again on my trip to NYC last spring, and it never disappoints.  Take a tour of the shop with Apartment Therapy here.   

Back to Flea Market Finds – I’ve read the entire publication front to back and I think it’s some of Matthew’s very best work.  Article after article of projects to inspire you to create with vintage and flea market finds.  Inside the 150+ pages (no ads!) are new uses for paint, old maps, fabric transfer, milk glass, fern fronds, textile dyes, gilding, the list goes on and I love it all!
