How does one go about breaking into the business of selling vintage furniture and wares in a city with a well established antique market and audience?

It felt like a secret society but I knew this was what I wanted to do with myself so I created a "booth" in my home and took some pictures with Lea. Lea is a photographer...and that doesn't hurt. Ever.

 I know this business of "vintage" well as a consumer but when I began talking to people I realized I would have to sell someone on what my aesthetic would be as a vendor - hence the at-home booth, the photos and the subsequent PDF I toted around town on the iPad.

Paris on Ponce liked it, we talked about the vision of their business and how I could fit into it - and *poof* - I signed a renter's agreement and now I'm on the brink of this new adventure!

I am also confident there was a lot of "at the right place at the right time" - stars-sort-of-aligning energy hovering about the sky above my head as I began down this path.

These pictures are a little peek of what the Paris on Ponce family agreed to welcome into their walls.
