The New Times here in Phoenix recently released its list for "Best Of 2012" - And I'm thrilled to see the monthly vintage shop - Sweet Salvage - made the list! The New Times said, "Every month, we strive to make a little more room in our apartment in hopes of squeezing in a new vintage find from Sweet Salvage. The d├ęcor shop opens its doors every third Thursday through Sunday with a new theme and fresh merchandise. To its sprawling Seventh Avenue space, shoppers flock to find globes, signage lettering, metal lockers, and large pieces like reupholstered couches and chairs, tables, desks, and, well, just about anything else you might desire. Items fly fast, so be sure to get to the store as early as possible if you want first dibs on the decorative wares." And that is the truth! 

A wonderful mix and merge of vintage fashion and decor...

I've been touring (and doing a little shopping) at this monthly vintage pop-up market since July. I've gone on various days during the four days it's open. Last time (in September) I had gone on opening day in the morning and it was as c-r-a-z-y as Black Friday!! This month, I went around 5ish on a Friday, and it was not only quiet, but so spacious; they appeared to have been wiped out (in a GOOD way!!) See last month's theme: Wicked Faire - all Halloween and Fall inspired... Next month's theme reminds me of my Holiday Home from 2010: (See Simple Comfort & Joy ) - probably because it will be called "Comfort and Joy!" Here is my tour of the October French Market theme at Sweet Salvage...

 Chipppy and milk finished furnishings plus menswear inspired finds from bow-ties to ticking stripe chairs...

Glamorous finds in noir and a unique chandy in a bird cage display... 
Plus two black glass goblets I HAD to have :) 

Lots of lovely grey linen pieces...

Gorgeous shades of deep greens on glazed amphora vessels, old books, a velvet slipper chair and a fabulous chippy finish on a buffet...
