My vintage pop-up stall!


I have been busy all weekend preparing the stock for my 'pop-up stall' at the Daylesford Bazaar. I have a cute space in there with pigeon holes, a table top and big shelves down below. Since I moved house to a smaller place a few months ago I've been forced to have a massive clearout. We took a whole trailer load of unwanted things to the op shop. I then had to tackle my collections of vintage wallpaper, linens, fabric, books, tins, toys and craft things. I have put aside my very favourite things, but much of my stash is going to be on my stall from this weekend.


There are also some pieces of furniture including a giant old doll's house that I used to have at trade fairs to display toys, and it has cute vintage curtains! I love it but I just have no use for it right now.

I have never had a stall at a vintage shop before. I chose the Bazaar because it has a lovely, rummagey vibe and I like the people who work there. It's not all fancy and over-priced, and in fact most of the smaller bits and pieces in there are under $10, yay! That suits me fine, I am just keen for my lovely 'junk' to go to a good home! I will probably have the stall open for about a month, or until most things are sold.

This is where I am up to at the moment, everything is piled up in my garage, and I'll be setting up the stall this week, I'll post some photos when it is ready. There are so many great stalls in the Bazaar, you might not immediately spot my space in among everything else, but all the price labels say 'Allison'!

So do pop in if you are coming to Daylesford. The Bazaar is on Vincent Street as you head out of Daylesford towards Hepburn. Don't forget our Winter Warehouse Sale is also on at Lark this Saturday, and the Maker's Market and Farmer's Market, so it's gonna be a fab day.

Its looking nice. The display fitting are popular display devices which work well to fulfill the promotional goals of the businesses.

It's best to start when the dog is still very young, around 6 months of age. Remember to start with slow rides and short distances, because the puppy's bones are still growing and fast long-distance running can damage the growing joints and ligaments.Dog Trailers in Melbourne
