Dagmar’s Home Decor Will Have a Booth in the Newburgh Vintage Emporium

Newburgh Vintage Emporium opening March 1, 2014

I’m so excited to make it official: Dagmar’s Home Decor — my vintage treasures, my handmade soy candles in vintage teacups, and my painted furniture — will be available at the Newburgh Vintage Emporium, NY.

I’m going to have a 10×10 booth there, and there will be 50 other vintage vendors. If you love vintage treasures even just a little bit, you have to check this place out!Dagmar's Home Decor

I specialize in vintage china and glassware, milk glass, mason jars, Pyrex, tins, linens, vintage books, and all kinds of shabby chic/cottage/farmhouse decor. You can see some of it in my Etsy store.

During my trips to thrift store and flea markets, I see so many small furniture pieces that I’m so tempted to bring home and paint, but I didn’t have an outlet to sell them. Now I do!

I was told about the Newburgh Vintage Emporium just by coincidence by a local antique dealer, and it was a perfect fit. The emphasis is on everything vintage, and that’s exactly what I gravitate to when I buy things.

The Emporium is slated to open March 1. Troy Ford, the owner, has been busy getting the booths build, and today was the first time I drove up with L to take a look at my space.

Check out their Facebook page — it’s buzzing although the place is not even open! Look at the 1,500+ Likes and people who can’t wait to visit.

This is going to be one busy place: there is worshop space in the back for furniture painting classes, they will sell chalk paint, and in the spring they will add a cafe and juice bar in an old train car.

And the Emporium is right next to the highway, on the corner of Route 9W and Route 84. I just went north on the Taconic, drove over the Newburgh Bridge, and it’s right off of exit 10 S. Getting back home is even easier — the onramp is right next to the Emporium.

This is the booth I now have to fill with vintage merchandise. I’ve been thinking about it in my head for weeks and have been buying small bookshelves and other little furniture to display my items, but it’s going to be interesting to see if it’s going to look like I envision it.

Having this little “store” is going to be a ton of work — finding, cleaning, and pricing items, making candles, driving them there, styling the booth — but I’m really looking forward to this new venture. I’m also thinking it’s a good learning experience for L to see what it takes to be an entrepreneur.

This is a little table I painted with DIY chalk paint until 2AM this morning. Once it’s finished, it will be available in my booth. I’ll write a separate post with the DIY chalk paint recipe soon.

Let the new adventure begin! I hope you will come by if you are in the area and let me know what you think! Look for Dagmar’s Home Decor in booth #33 — it’s facing the front window.

Hi Cindy, you live in Lake Lincolndale? We are practically neighbors!!! We need to get together. Maybe we can even drive up to the Emporium at some point when we both need to restock.
