09 Feb New! Vintage Garden Market
Vintage pieces, with peeling paint, weathered wood, or iron burnished with rust, just naturally fit into a garden. Gardeners love to recycle and repurpose just about anything for use in the garden, or bring vintage pieces inside for cozy home décor reminiscent of gentler times.
Why buy a boring plastic pot from a big box store when you can use a vintage milk can to show off a cascade of flowers? Or use a rusty grate to define the start of a garden path. Try hanging a weathered wood-frame mirror on a fence so that it reflects the garden back to you as you pass. And there’s simply no end to what you can do with an old Mason jar – or six, tucked into an old wire basket.
If you love this look, you will love the new Vintage Garden Market at the 2013 Northwest Flower & Garden Show, to be held February 20 – 24 at the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle. We’ve assembled 13 of the top vintage stores from around Washington to bring their wares to you.
Here’s a sneak peek of a few of the exhibitors that will be in the new Vintage Garden Market:
CIRCLE CREEK HOME

Their focus is on small, cold processed batches of pure oil soaps, wildcrafted wreaths, handmade home furnishings and one of a kind unique vintage finds.
Patty Green of Sisters Antiques is always searching for unique, one-of-a-kind items full of charm and beauty. The shop has been in the same Issaquah complex since 1997, and is chock fiull of vintage outdoor furniture, plants, benches, pottery, ladders, doors and more. They were recently selected for a Cash Mob which was filmed by King 5 TV.
