**Vintage to the Core**

Vintiques LLC hosted a BLOW OUT (1st TIME EVER) show on May 3rd, 2014 here in the rural countryside of Idaho! 

Jake and Skee Wood, the show's promoters and  curators, personally recruited Lipstick Gypsy for their 1st annual Antiques and Uniques Market/Vintage Trailer Show! 

Before Lipstick ;-)

The event was held at the VERY vintage Garrett Ranches rustic fruit packing shed. No longer used for that purpose, it made a PHENOMENAL vintage show venue!!!

The shoppers came in DROVES and waited in line with great anticipation for the shed doors to be opened at 9am sharp!

Our booth position was FRONT and CENTER and FIRST inside....this is a side shot of our space and what you would see as you entered the show!

After Lipstick ;-)


Lipstick Gypsy up and ready to receive all of the OH-SO-FAB JUNKY JUNKERS!

What an AWESOME crowd and FANTASTIC customers we experienced on this day!

While we typically travel, this Idaho show right here in our own "backyard", proved to be a FANTASTIC reminder of what INCREDIBLE family, friends, and customers Lipstick Gypsy has been blessed with!

For another FEATURE presentation of the show....Vintage Trailers at their finest!

It doesn't get any better than TRAILERS and JUNK all in one spot!!!

Circle the.......CAMPERS!!!

Our ABSOLUTE favorite feature of the show was the display of vintage caravans from every year, make, and model! What a FUN gathering! Tin Gypsy was SO SWEET and HAPPY in this impressive line up!  All of the trailers were open for touring during the show. 

 Every vendor that participated worked hard and did a GREAT job with their display! 


LIPSTICK GYPSY was HONORED to receive the BEST IN SHOW WIN for our booth space!!! WOOOHOOO!!!

Words CANNOT express how EXCITED and HONORED we were to have been invited to be part of the ground floor beginnings of such a CLASS ACT event!!!

THANK YOU Jake and Skee for not only 'knocking' yourselves out, but 'knocking' it out of the park in your endeavor!!! Getting to know the two of you has felt like 'old friends' who really care, support, and celebrate others success! 

THANK YOU to the Garrett Ranch Family, specifically for opening your doors and hearts to all of us that were involved with this very special event.....it would not have felt the same anywhere else!!! 

THANK YOU to all of the lovers, supporters, customers, followers, shoppers, story sharers, die hard JUNKERS of Lipstick Gypsy for allowing us to do what we are passionate about all the while making a living at it! :-) We LOVE you ONE, we LOVE you ALL!!!

Can't WAIT till NEXT YEAR....!
