Where You Can Find Me

I'm doing quite a few shows between now and the end of the year, so I thought it would be helpful to share the list. I hope to see you at one of these venues! :)

October -8th Second Saturdayz at Magnuson Park
October 21st & 22nd Ruffles & Rust at The Monroe Fairgrounds
November 3rd, 4th and 5th Pickering Barn Craft and Antique Show in Issaquah
November 12th Second Saturdayz at Magnuson Park
December 10th Second Saturdayz at Magnuson Park

Links to Second Saturdayz and Ruffles & Rust are on the left under favorites. I'll provide info on Pickering Barn as it approaches. It's gonna be a crazy time of year for me but I'm so looking forward to it all! I'll have tons of French chairs (as usual!) some Gustavian inspired pieces, pillows and so much more...see you soon. :)

19th Century Forged Iron French Campaign Bed


This is such a special find. Plucked from a garden gazebo in France is this 19th century forged iron French campaign bed. Beautiful chippy blue paint (don't know if it is original paint or has been re-painted in past years). All the slats and pieces are intact. So charming! $525.

I've decided to change things up a bit at A Touch of Mink and expand my selling platforms. I'm opening an Etsy storefront where I will be featuring some of my pieces, including my custom French chairs and lots of my smaller items such as pink depression glass and other nifty finds.

Plus, my besty Traci from A Mix of Madness and I are going to be in at least 5 (yes 5!) fleas between now and Christmas. Stay tuned on my blog where I will be posting a complete list of where you can find us.

Lastly, I will be creating a section on my blog with a list of services (such as custom furniture painting/distressing) as so many of you have been asking about custom work.

Keep in touch and happy hunting!


Have a wonderful day!
