As Emily mentioned earlier, the Attic Birds are taking the show on the road to Oklahoma City!! Though I’ve done antique shows with Red Hen in the past – even selling some things I picked up here and there — this will be the first official Attic Birds show (aside from the Malawi Market we did a few months ago). We’re THRILLED to have gotten into this show, and having seen some of the pictures from past VMD’s – we have HUGE shoes to fill!
To us, selling to people in person (rather than online) allows us to tell the story of the item. We can converse about what we know, speculate about the details we’re missing about the item’s history, and help think about what the item’s future should hold. This is the truly joy-ful part of what we do! And – for those friends and family who think we’ve just become hoarders – it brings a little legitamcy to our little hobby.
We’re also excited to see what other vintage folks are doing to get a new take – and new inspiration on things. And, whatever we see, think, and hear – you’d better believe we’re going to be bringing it back to you!
So, mark your calendars! November 8-10 — Friday 1-6p, Saturday 9a-6p, and Sunday 12-4p. OKC Famers Public Market. All the info you need – including how to buy tickets early – can be found at on VMD OKC’s webpage and Facebook. And, don’t forget to check back with us here – we’ll be posting additional information and maybe even some previews before the show!
