This weekend kicked off the first of twelve monthly vintage markets for Sweet Salvage, here in Phoenix. Considering today's home plays an important role in who we are, the January theme to start the new year was "For the Love Of Home." Since the the new year allows people to look at their homes with a fresh eye, each member of the Sweet's crew had asked themselves these questions as they worked on setting their vignettes: Does this space work for my family? Does it compliment the goals we have set for ourselves? The Sweet's team brought into their creations what they felt represented "For the Love of Home" - from the laundry room, to the kitchen, home office, bedroom, bathroom, dining room, family area and garden. The team not only set impactful displays to sell, they each  incorporated their tips for a functioning and well organized home. The designs are beautifully displayed in a purposeful sense. The "For the Love of Home" event also seemed like the perfect time to demonstrate some ways to add color back into your world, which is easy to do with the popular and natural palette of greys, taupe, and linen. Indigo blues, fresh greens and hints of radiant orchid (the Pantone Color of the Year for 2014) seemed like a natural accent...

Since this is also the start of the new year, Sweet Salvage planned and released the upcoming vintage market dates for 2014 - with one special note: Since Spring holidays (such as Easter & Passover) are falling earlier in the month, their will be a shift in the Sweet Salvage traditional third Thursday & weekend event to the fourth week for April. If you're planning a trip to the Phoenix area, or you already live nearby and have heard the Sweet buzz about this monthly market event, be sure to mark your calendars and plan to stop on by...

  1. Thanks for info on this great event! I'm new to the Valley and glad I found your blog for info on things like this. Cheers - CT

  2. I've been to Sweet Salvage several times but haven't purchased anything yet. It's a lot of fun roaming through the place and seeing what's being offered each time. Will continue to go because I just know there will be something eventually that I can't live without :) The other vintage/antique shops along 7th Ave in the Melrose District are also good places to shop.
