Tricia LeTempt is on board!
Wow! Our ranks are growing and the word is spreading. The Vintage Marketplace, at the May Springfield Extravaganza is gonna to be a party! And we’re so glad that Tricia LeTempt of The Red Door Antiques will be joining us. She always loved the Springfield Antiques Show & Flea Market and has been a frequent shopper but when she heard about our Vintage Marketplace section in this May’s Extravaganza, she knew she had to be part of it.
Tricia’s a long established antiques dealer who specializes in country, industrial, garden and farmhouse. She says she has a love for things that are “strange, unusual and quirky”. Many of you may have met her on the road, doing shows from New England to Texas and point in between. Of course, you may also have visited her at The Red Door, her “little” 7,000 square foot shop in Eddyville, KY. If by chance you still aren’t familiar with Tricia, you need to pick up this month’s Country Living magazine, because her darning knobs are featured in an article on collecting. Congratulations Tricia!
Tricia’s excited about the Vintage Marketplace because she’s convinced that “Repurposed is where it’s at. It’s do-able in every price range and there’s something for everyone. It’s not about the $5,000. piece of furniture”. She summed up her thought by telling me that “Repurposed puts a whole new light on the antiques business”, and I couldn’t agree more.
