A woman was overheard saying, “It’s all the same stuff…” at yesterday’s Pop Up Market at Poplar Grove. The funny thing was almost all of the vendors had NEW upcycled, recycled and repurposed items that have NEVER been to Seaglass before! Nicole with Refindment actually had NOTHING from her SSM space with her at Poplar Grove yesterday and most of us had items we had purchased or made solely for the Pop Up. So, I wanted to explain what Seaglass IS…
We are a group of vendors who buy furniture to sell as DIY and/or paint and upcycle to sell as “new to you” items. Each month we will have a few pieces from the month before, but there will be MANY items that we purchase and upcycle during our off weeks…however, it will always look similar because we all have a look or a style. Tovi with Simply tovi LOVES chairs and the color Duck Egg Blue, I love small tables and paint almost everything Old White. Some of us like a smooth modern finish, while others always paint their items to look beachy or rustic or shabby. The Honey lady will always have HONEY and Robin’s Nest Jewelry will always have her style of jewelry. As vendors, if we buy and sell 3 end tables at a Market, we will go out and buy more end tables…that’s what we do!
Although you will not come to a SSM market and see a complete STYLE change, you may find a new vendor with a new product or different variety then what you have seen there before. Tovi may find a new favorite color and I may decide tables are no longer my “thing” but Seaglass has a certain LOOK or design that will always remain similar but, we promise, never exact. We are always looking for unique and different pieces, but we also go out and pick what is currently the “in” item and we paint colors that sell…that’s what we do!
If you are looking for certain items…let us know! We love to go on the HUNT for our customers! Shoot us an e-mail or let us know at the Market and we will do our best to find it for you! If you have a “look” that you love, share it with us, we love to hear what you are looking for! Oh, and don’t forget, a lot of the vendors do custom work…if you found the perfect piece in the wrong color we can fix that…that’s what we do!
Our October Market will have some wonderful new pieces, some great seasonal items and some pretty new colors…styles change with the season and you will see a few changes at Seaglass but don’t look for too much change…we LOVE Seaglass just the way it is and we sure hope y’all do too!
We look forward to seeing you in just 16 days!
