Sweet Salvage

collections-16 collections-32

Last month, Heather and I had the pleasure of going behind the scenes to of one our favorite stomping grounds, Sweet Salvage.  This top notch curated occasional marketplace open on the third Thursday every month for four days in Phoenix is one of the finest resources for prop stylists, designers, dealers and discerning collectors.  Sweet as it is referred to, has a broad selection of vintage finds, overflowing vignettes of curiosities, architectual elements, stacks and stacks of layering textiles, caches of  mossy garden cloches, garden edgings, industrial lighting and everything in between.

These impresarios of this quintessianal treasure trove are Katie Hibbs and Kim Rawlins.  Every month they carefully create the perfect stage and backdrop for their space, with some help from some incredibly talented designers and vendors.  This crew is dedicated, they hand pick their pieces, are extremely knowledgable, not to mention friendly and helpful.  Breathing new life into so many items, they restore, repurpose and restyle to preserve a little of the past. Each month they have a different theme for inspiration and this month it is Summer Lovin’ from June 20-23rd.  Taking cue, from the beach, travel and plenty of sunshine, they are embrasing the joys of summer.

Collections Week

ModernDrinks-8

Discerning collectors, hmmm or hoarders, what sets the two apart, where do you draw the line?  Why do we collect things?

So here at MDF we can’t stop talking about the many collections we have had over the years.  Why do we acquire the pieces we have, why do we covet and curate these pieces, why do we have such strong attachments to all of these things?  Are we true collectors or are we really hoarders???

This week we are doing our posts on collection, curating  and curiosities. 

We wanted to switch it up this week and share some of our collections along with some other impressive collections we’ve had the pleasure of seeing and learning about.  So here we go…

Please tell us if are you a discerning collector or are you a hoarder, we would love to hear.  Enjoy!
