Harvest Haul Collector's Fair ~ Last One Of The Season!!!

Calling All Funky Junkers, Passionate Pickers, & Darling Dealers...The Gin'Gilli's Harvest Haul Collector's Fair is right around the corner and WE NEED YOU!!!  The LAST Collector's Fair of the season is on September 7th, 2013 - 8am-3pm.  We host this wonderful outdoor "Flea Market" event in the adjacent parking lot right next to our store.  This way customers (and vendors, alike) can get their fill of junkin' and when they are done buying your markdowns, we totally promote your business space inside the shop!!!

As always, this popular event will be advertised locally in the Press Democrat, drawing new Sonoma County customers to Geyserville!  Additional posts will be created on Craigslist so all those last minute shoppers will know exactly where to find us.  Our last Collector's Fair even brought some great sales inside when people saw the ad posted on Facebook just that morning!

You can find a little bit of everything to meet your repurposed vintage heart’s desire - REMEMBER...Our Junk is NOT garbage!!!  We only deal in vintage treasures that remind you of the olden days.  Things that can be reused and repurposed and new life breathed into them.  Because our vendors bring a brand new variety of merchandise every time, fresh inventory is guaranteed!  The loot you will find includes architectural salvage, vintage clothing, antiques, repurposed jewelry and much more.

Promote your business and help us host this event that brings us all more customers all year round, by showing up to sell your extras outside!  Many of you who participated in the Spring left with less than you brought to the sale and that spells success!  Vendors had fun getting to know each other and shopped each others spaces and still went home with money! 

If you are interested in being a vendor and selling at this EXCITING outdoor event, please contact the store for more details and to rent / reserve your space TODAY!!! (707)-857-3509.  This is also a great opportunity to showcase your outside business, peddle your crafts, and network with other people in the vintage resale industry!

Whether you love flea markets and shop at them often or whether you've never been before and would just like to experience one for the first time, THIS IS THE ONE TO ATTEND!!!  SEE YOU THERE!!!

Trend Watch ~ Autumn 2013

Wanna know what is HOT & ALL THE RIOT when it comes to Chic Personal Style this Fall?  Well look no further...we have compiled the following Top 5 trends for all you shoppers and vendors alike.  These HOT TRENDS are in the forecast, so look for these colors, materials, & design motifs to be everywhere in the coming months...

The color of SUNSHINE makes a big comeback...YELLOW evokes Optimism & Cheerfulness, this pop of color will electrify your personal look!

STRIPES add a sense of order and calm...perfectly integrated into modern and casual living spaces alike.  Look for patterns with neutral hues that are offset by unexpected colors or gradient widths...these are new interpretations on a basic.


Reticulated, punched-out, carved, or incised...products that have a fractured or broken surface will be everywhere this Fall...kinda retro 70's...these items make a room feel feather-light and easy-breezy.  Don't forget to look for these design details in clothing...vintage lace, cutout and sheer back shirt panels, and even suede shoes with airy vents in stylish patterns.

Think of dining on the Mediterranean coast, shopping Moorish night markets, and East Indian architecture.  Surround yourself with these subtle nuances and you will feel like you are on a far away holiday in an exotic and intoxicating city with not a care in the world.

This utilitarian material is back in Vogue...forget about its durability and long lasting qualities, items designed with Sisal, Jute Cord, & Twine give your interior an earthy, no nonsense feeling, while colored string details add a touch of whimsy and kitsch to your world.

Keep these trends in mind when shopping at Gin'Gilli's Vintage Home as many of our vendors will be following these marketplace demands and filling their spaces with items that give a nod to these popular and exciting details.  Use these trends to update your home, make subtle changes to your existing look, and keep up with the times!!!
