I’m truly a sucker for difficult-to-photograph glass display boxes. This little guy is a steal at 33 bucks!

I would suggest you pick up this amazing little night light at Vintage Crawl next Thursday, but I don’t think it will last that long at $25! #vcto (at The Chief Salvage Co.)

I truly apologize, and know how inconvenient this is, so if you have any urgent questions or requests, please feel free to email us, and we will get back to you in two shakes: codyandthechief@gmail.com.

The Somewhat long-winded story of The Chief’s Moon Bunting…

In the winter, I made a very limited number of these great little phases of the moon buntings for my lady friends. i just thought it was a cute idea. I had seen different versions, done in a bunch of different materials with fabric and paper and such. I found a lovely, high quality black paper that somehow mimics watercolor paper, and went to town. I had made a few extra, so I sold those at the Junction Flea, and they went over very well with people and we got some requests from people with baby rooms to decorate, or wanted them cause they were having a moon-themed party (genius!), but mostly people were just requesting them because they needed a perfect little gift, or to decorate their own kitchen, bathroom or bedroom (these look great hanging above the bed, you know)

Well, as many of you know, I have been working at a manic pace to try and get this humble little series of bunting finished. We were aiming for early May….and now its early June. So i’ll bet a few of you are curious, “What ever happened to that idea?”

Look no further for answers, because I have all the answers you seek! The short form of the answer is: MOON BUNTING WILL BE AVAILABLE AT THE SHOP THIS SATURDAY AT 11AM!! Just in time for the Dundas West Fest!

In Slightly longer form though, we would like to thank all of you for your beautiful support and interest in these little pieces of art. They are hand-painted, hand-strung, numbered and signed. Numbers 1-50 will be available on Saturday, we are very proud to announce. And any extras we have left over will be accompanying us to the Junction Flea this upcoming Sunday.

We will be open a little longer on Saturday, so you’ll have lot’s of time to come claim your very own set!

How wonderful are all of you for coming out last night in support of Vintage Crawl Toronto? How much fun was that?? By all accounts, very fun!! And the reviews have been rolling in from all of our buddies who also stayed open well into the evening that a great time was had by all. Well worth the sleepiness I’m experiencing today!
A huge thank you to Odessa for spear-heading the effort to make the first Vintage Crawl of the year as wonderful as it could be, and a very, very big thank you to Noah Earle of Able Design for making all the promo material so perfect. You guys are wonderful.
Can’t wait for Vintage Crawl, the Fall edition!
In the meantime, please come see us for the first OUTDOOR JUNCTION FLEA of the season this SUNDAY THE 12th! I have been waiting months for this. We will be slinging our usual selection of treasures, deals, and the iced tea stand will be in full-effect. With a few sweet treats and surprises in store as well.
See you all there!
