High Desert Vintage Shopping Events for March 2, 2013

The High Desert’s Smoketree Junction Antiques, 815 Hwy 138/Oasis Rd in Pinion Hills and Vintage Gypsies, located at 20601 HWY 18 Apple Valley cottage 302, Apple Valley, are the places to go for flea market days this first Saturday of March.

Try out your haggling skills at Smoketree Junction Antiques’ Haggle Days. Meet the vendors and negotiate a great deal. Shop at the Saturday Flea Market, or barter at the Sunday Barter Market. Mark your calendar for every first weekend of the month. This is an outdoor event, but do go inside the shops and visit the outdoor nursery where you’ll find amazing yard art for sale.

Specially featured this week at Smoketree Junction Antiques is Artist Andrea, gifted with an amazing talent in mosaic, decoupage, and other art.

Want to learn mosaic art? Take one of Andrea’s business cards inside the shop at the front counter and contact her for more information on signing up for a mosaic art class. (She’s very patient with beginners, too!) See this fabulous vintage tub designed by the amazing Andrea:

Andrea recently made these darling button push pins, perfect for adding to the message board in your kitchen like this cool wine cork message board:

Ask a shop vendor in Smoketree Junction Antiques to direct you to Andrea’s space to find the decorative push pins and her many other artistic beauties. Browse through G&A’s rustic country upcycled space where you’ll see 30% off of everything – you’ll find the wine cork boards there.

Take extra spending money and don’t be in a big hurry because you don’t want to miss this fabulous weekend at Smoketree Junction Antiques.

Now for those of you meandering over to Apple Valley to do some vintage shopping, mark an A1 on your to-do list for Saturday, March 2nd, to go by the Vintage Gypsies shop. You’ll find anything from romantic accessories to wear to rustic upcycled decor and everything in between – even a revolutionary skin care product called NeriumAD that is showing amazing, true, real results and improvements in fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration, uneven skin texture, enlarged pores, and aging skin. Find out more about the vintage giveaway opportunity for those who sign up for the skin care product.

Vintage and Craft Entrepreneur Networking

Everyone participates in social networking. It’s called connecting with like-minded individuals, same as word-of-mouth advertising. We let others know about our services and end up making new friends – friends that have friends that have friends and on and on. Eventually, one of those friends will mention a need for a particular service. That’s when we say, “Oh, I met just the person you need to talk to.” Sound familiar?

Saturday, December 10th, Linda Marie from Linda Marie’s Enchanted Treasures hosted Holiday Cheer for vendors, customers, and friends. It was an enjoyable evening of mingling with like-minded individuals. There were a blend of many talents represented by entrepreneurs who make or sell vintage lovelies and antiques, specialty crafts, write books, photography, and more.

High Desert Blogging is a place to connect with other talented entrepreneurs in the High Desert. We blog about your business, craft, or other entrepreneur specialty. We service the High Desert in blog networking, blogging classes and workshops, and blogging for businesses.
