AROUND TOWN: Sweet Salvage on 7th - PHX AZ

Over the weekend, I ventured out to a few shops I've been meaning to check out. Luckily, they were located in this one area of downtown Phoenix on 7th Avenue. It was also great timing to finally go experience a local vintage market called Sweet Salvage. Sweet Salvage is a unique shop: it's only open 4 days monthly. By having a limited opening, Sweet Salvage offers their customers a fresh "theme" of merchandise each month. Yes, retailers often re-set their stores monthly, but they are open all the days in between and sometimes, that can just give a tired appearance to the store. This limited opening helps to create hype and excitement - something to look forward to - to experience and enjoy. Sweet Salvage locates vintage & flea finds curated towards a theme - for example this months theme was "Now Showing" with a more old Hollywood theme. They have also had Romancing the Home, a French Market, Harvest Moon, and A Mid-Summer's Night Dream theme to name a few. Vignettes are created by designers & sellers of these finds - all under one roof: Sweet Salvage on 7th - which at one time was actually an auto body shop. Be sure to read the Story of Sweet Salvage on their blog, plus visit them to see the slides from the previous curated shops. Although they had opened on Thursday (with a much larger inventory!!), here is a bit from my tour on Saturday...

Sweet Salvage on 7th - Vintage Market

Movie Star travels...

So vintage chic -  And reminds me also of Boardwalk Empire!
(Could be a COOL future theme for the shop!)

LOVE the books displayed in the lantern...

Great ticking on these bistro chairs!

LOVE the labels on the file drawers from Editors cut to BLACKLISTED!

LOVED this Easy Rider fringed stool!

FANTASTIC means of repurposing!

From the writers cut...

GREAT vintage movie seating...

Located more towards the entrance is a concentrated display of the month's theme...


LOVE Sinatra!

Although the space is mainly dedicated to home furnishings and gifts, vintage accessories + some clothing can also be found. this was from a strong "Breakfast At Tiffany's"  statement

LOVE the pleated band detail to edge the black shade...

Stanchions for crowd control are inside, meanwhile outside is a stand with light munchies and treats... To celebrate the 1st Birthday of Sweet Salvage, next month's theme will be "Let Them Eat Cake" (I wonder if they'll have cakes & cookies inside to sweeten the experience at Sweet Salvage... hee hee)
