(& so is Tropical Storm Bonnie)
Just walked back from one of my favorite local shops, Bohemian Vintage in Tampa. Sad to say that today is the last day the storefront will be open.
However Mina will continue sell her fabulous finds online at BohemianVintage1.etsy.com. You can also read about her latest treasures & other fun decor posts on her blog minasdecorandfashion.blogspot.com
I will admit I do a lot of my shopping online & do not "shop local" as often as I should. But it has been a true pleasure having such a lovely (& lively) store literally right around the corner. And Mina is such a sweetie!
She greets everyone with a smile but is content to let her customers find their way around. And always makes time for a chat if you have a few minutes to talk treasures. So I popped by this afternoon to take a few photos before she closed for the day.
Many of the free-use antique photos I post to this blog come from Bohemian Vintage. Mina has a great eye & I am so glad she will continue stocking her Etsy Shop with her latest discoveries. Ciao, Mina. Wishing you the best of luck with all of your new adventures!!
On other local fronts today, the Tampa Artists Emporium turns 3! Congrats, Guys!!
The new owners, Melissa & Anthony, are hosting a birthday bash from 6 - 10 tonight at the gallery. There is lots of art, a bar and.....cupcakes! mmm...mmm... you can't go wrong with cupcakes. They will also be holding a raffle featuring local art & giving away goody bags too.
I decided to donate a half dozen mixed media tiles. I altered some old polaroid transfer tiles (rejects I never got around to tossing) & had some fun with rubber stamps, markers & inks. Here's one of them:
