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 Chelle and Robert who operate their own auction house and three amazing online shops Chelle’s Jewels, Chelle’s Treasure and Wagner’s Treasures:
Our passion is treasure hunting and the jobs we have created for ourselves reflect that. We own RCW Auctions Inc in Kernersville NC. As auctioneers we are constantly in the world of auctions and we love to pick up great items and we often buy entire estates. We both have certain items we are passionate about and those things stay in our personal collections; for Chelle it is collectible glass shoes and victorian boot vases, hand vases with the delicate painted fingernails, and head vases. For Robert it is old bottles the more detailed and intricate the better. We have two antique booths in The Antique Marketplace in Greensboro and three Etsy stores………still we are overflowing with more treasures than we have time to sell. We are so excited to be vendors at Vintage Charlotte, it gives us a chance to let go of some of our finds at amazing prices!
Robert is bringing a huge collection of Mantiques such as tools, weathervanes, copper buckets, old tools, and a coke cooler. We both love advertising pieces so we will have quite of few of those. I [Chelle] am bringing lots of retro kitchen items. The 1950s – 1970s is a favorite era of mine. I love the shiny chrome, the cute aprons, the colorful canisters.
We will also have some great vintage luggage, books, paper ephemera and mixed media art supply.
