Our vendor spotlight posts give you a chance to meet some of our amazing vendors before the Vintage Charlotte Summer Market on June 23rd at The Annex. Please welcome our first vendor to be featured in the spotlight, Brooke from Cosmic Ephemera:
Hi there! I’m Brooke, proprietor of Cosmic Ephemera and blogger at My Indie Charlotte. I love absurd things like little doll limbs and old photographs of dudes making weird faces. I don’t know why.
My shop Cosmic Ephemera is a much more toned down, aesthetically-pleasing version of what goes on in my head. I’m a collage artist by sport, and I’ve always loved incorporating little bits of vintage ephemera into my wall art and journals. When this ephemera collection of mine starting getting out of control, I knew it was time to open up shop and share my findings with others.
So now I sell vintage scrap kits. These kits are packed with about 20-40 themed pieces. Some of the sets you’ll see at the Vintage Charlotte Summer Market include fashion clippings from 1920s magazines, groovy children’s book illustrations, and lots of old school folks from old school books doing old school things. I also have a handful of delightful vintage books that are pretty hard for me to part with. Look out for a cool 1970s French craft book, and surreal astrology paperbacks that give some hardcore advice.
My aim with Cosmic Ephemera is to give buyers the inspiration to create something fabulous and unique out of one little bit of vintage. Or to just aid in your paper hoarding, so I won’t be the only one.
Oh, and you should know: Cosmic Ephemera is undergoing a little renovation, so most of the items you see here–plus plenty more–will only be available starting June 23 at the Vintage Charlotte Summer Market! I’m excited to see you there!
