Our vendor spotlight posts give you a chance to meet some of our amazing vendors before the Vintage Charlotte Hoilday Market on December 8, 2012 at The Fillmore Charlotte. Please welcome Brenda from OliveYouMore:
I’m Brenda Matthews, professionally, Midday (10a-2pm) Personality, or ‘DJ,’ on K104.7 here in Charlotte. ‘OliveYouMore’ is my ‘side business,’ and my creative venture with my hubby and carpenter, Kenny. He scratches his head at the things I bring home from my ‘junking’ adventures…a free rusty/crusty ‘roached’ metal glider, a Habitat ReStore table with a broken leg, old crusty door, which ‘we’ made over into three projects – a cocktail table (SOLD!) end table, (FOR SALE) and a chalkboard (ours!). He really liked the sterling silver flask I paid $1.31 for…found out it was worth upwards of $400.00!!!
Here are pics of some of my latest projects, including chalk-painted furniture, chalkboard frames (vintage and new), and re-purposed Christmas stockings made of felted wool from ugly sweaters, and funky skirts and jackets. What’s ugly has turned into Christmas-cool! I’ve also been creating dessert pedestals from candle holders and trays and dishes. I have a variety of vintage Christmas tins, aprons, tablecloths and tree skirts – some with local history!
