Market Vintage Inspired Finds November 09 2013, 0 Comments
Life after the Atlanta Home & Gift Market has been busy, but exciting! I attended the show in early July as a buyer, searching for unique, bohemian styled home goods to bring back to my online shop bömisch. Orders that I placed at the show have already been arriving which means lots of organizing in my small storeroom and hours of photography will fill my every moment in the upcoming weeks. I can't wait to start sharing all the new unique items with my boho home decor and gift loving customers!
Goods being showcased in neutral colors of grays, taupes and creams was what stood out the most at this Market, which is very different from the last Market when the products were mainly in vibrant, poppy colors of red, emerald and mustard. A few of the line curators noted that neutrals are definitely in but pairing them with colorful accents is the best way to decorate for the late August, fall and winter seasons.
One of the lines I feel so lucky to have found is Fishs Eddy. Fishs Eddy began as an adventure for the founders, road tripping through the hills of upstate New York, scouring every flea market, yard sale and barn for interesting finds (sounds right in line with what I LOVE to do!). The name was discovered when they stumbled upon a small hamlet named Fishs Eddy and decided it was just the perfectly odd title they were seeking! Borrowing the name, Fishs Eddy opened up it's first shop in Gramercy Park New York City.
Over the next years, the couple behind Fishs Eddy spent their days searching out unique, one of a kind finds to bring back to their small city apartment. From there they would scrub away the dirt to discover the classic American beauty that each treasure held. Customer's fell in love with the vintage pieces and the store grew. Now, 25 years later, the shop has two locations (Staten Island & 19th Street in Manhattan) and continues to stick to it's original vision and style that New Yorkers now know well. They have taken the vintage style from their thrifted finds and created new kitchen and home goods that reflect the old charm that is uniquely early American culture. Millions of edgy, and incredibly fun dishes and glasses have gone through their doors over the years and some of these wonderful pieces will now be gracing my little store as well! Fishs Eddy is the perfect fit for bömisch and will definitely be a staple going forward.
