SHOPPING & UPDATE: New Items In Stock + Customer Photos!

I would be remiss if I said I didn’t feel guilty for not posting more and updating you all on the great and fabulous things happening in the land of JJV, not to mention in my life personally.

So much has happened since my post about participating in Black Market SF, that I guess the only thing to do would be to start from there.

Black Market SF is probably one of my favorite new pop up markets in San Francisco. ¬†It’s a night market with a super chill and cool vibe and it is RSVP only. ¬†Yes, honey. ¬†So if you want to make sure you get in, you need to hop to it and get a ticket. ¬†Be sure to visit their website and tell them Jillian sent you. ¬†The next event is April 19th (I won’t be selling this month due to some awesome surprises coming up), and you should make sure you join the fun.

Hello from Black Market SF! March 2014

The most exciting news for me is that this year I am getting married! ¬†You probably remember my Paris trip and all the goodies I got there- but what I didn’t tell you is I also got engaged, and I wanted to hold on to that feeling for a bit before telling the whole world. ¬†But if you have taken a look at my Pinterest lately, you have more than likely noticed my huge board of Wedding Inspirations. ¬†And if you want, I will be happy to post about any wedding DIY projects I will be working on with one of my nine- yes NINE bridesmaids (I love them too much to not have them next to me).

Now, on to some awesome customer photos!  I sold these pieces from the shop and these lovelies were so great to send me photos of how JJV furniture revved up their decor!  Check it out!

I love this chair! Every time I find them, I fall in love! This chair is perfect at this desk and the color is superb for the room! Click the photo to see more info.

This awesome reclaimed wood planter box looks so perfect by the window!

For all of you who have just been jonesing for new merch in the shop, don’t fret! ¬†We are creeping our inventory levels up and we are almost at 300 items in the shop! ¬†HOLLER!

Here are some of my fave items in the shop now.  There will be more soon, especially after this weekend when we will be in LA at The Rosebowl (you should come visit).

 

 

And last but not least, for those who missed it- JJV was on the front page of Etsy this month!  WOOT!

I am always so pleased to see how furniture from the shop takes on a life of its own after it leaves my hands. ¬†I strongly believe that just because it’s old, doesn’t mean furniture is dead. ¬†It just needs another chance to live on. ¬†And that’s what I’m here for. ¬†If you have bought a piece of furniture from me, please shoot me an email with a photo of it in your house (email is on the home page).

In other news, I will be at Fairfax Flea at The Garage in downtown Fairfax this Saturday!  We had so much fun last time that I had to do it again.

Deeeeelish!

POSTMORTEM: Silver Lake Art Craft & Vintage + Rose Bowl Flea Market

Last weekend Allyson from Birthday Life Vintage and I embarked on¬†an epic road trip to Los Angeles¬†to do two shows; Silver Lake Art Craft & Vintage and¬†Rosebowl¬†Flea Market. Silver Lake was such a cute little place, with the farmer’s market right down the street it was the perfect day for an outdoor fair! ¬†Allyson and I had so much fun there, we hope you did too!

¬† At Silver Lake, I met Carrie from¬†Barrington Blue¬†and Lisa from¬†Recycculents. ¬†It’s so funny, the day before the market, I was browsing through¬†Instagram¬†and I found Carrie’s photos and I fell in love with her designs. ¬†As we pulled into the parking lot of the elementary school that morning to set up our booth, I instantly spotted Carrie’s upholstery work. ¬†What a¬†small world!

At the Rose Bowl, we decorated our space with a July 4th theme!  We got up super early (3am) and got to The Bowl at about 4:30am.  It was really crazy with all the pickers with their flashlights hunting us down and snooping through our van while we were unpacking!  It was so much fun though.

Allyson and I got so pumped for our themed booth that we even dressed up in matching outfits!  Allyson is wearing deadsock vintage red, white and blue floral capris and a boatneck red and white striped top.  I am wearing a red and white striped tank that I made and a maxi skirt I made from blue and white floral vintage fabric.

All day we ran into super cool, fun and fashionable people; and I couldn’t help but to take some pics!

We’ve got some really fun stuff planned this month, and I’m so excited (maybe a little something in store for all you SO CAL folks)!

This Sunday (tomorrow), you can visit JJV at the Alameda Antiques Fair, as per usual.  You can shop with us this time in booth V17 (I know, I knowРyou have to walk farРbut I promise it will be worth it).  We will have great furniture picks for all you movers and shakers with tiny spaces, great accessories, and of course a clearance rack (sweet)!  And yes, we do have Square, just in case you run out of cash.

I also just finished reupholstering three of these lovely beauties…they make a great desk chair, boudoir lounge chair or would be a perfect fit in your living room or sun room. ¬†I picked up the fabric from my lovely friend Allyson of Birthday Life Vintage at our¬†Tr√®s Magnifique¬†Sidewalk Sale last month! ¬†It’s a vintage distressed striped canvas, and I’m absolutely in love with it. ¬†The chairs also feature powder blue velvet piping. ¬†J’adore!

By the way, I made this super awesome flyer with an app on my iPhone called,¬†A Beautiful Mess, which also turns out to be a super cute design blog by super cute femmes Elsie & Emma. ¬†They have the same obsessions with design, food, fashion and decor that I do. ¬†I secretly hope to meet them someday (well, I guess it’s not a secret anymore, huh?). ¬†Check them out, and download the app! ¬†It’s only $.99!!!!
