Business Name: Tularosa Vintage
Personal bio:I was born and raised in Hemet Ca. and still live here. My parents were antique dealers and store owners most of my childhood, so my junkin blood runs deep. My mom does help me with the shows and I cherish that time we spend together. My dad? Let’s just say, I miss him everyday. My family is everything to me. I have two great kids and a hubby that supports me always, even when he can’t get to his tools in the garage. (Cuz of all my junk)My newest hobby is my vintage trailer, her name is Tinnie after my great grandmother.
How did you start your business & why? I started my business 4 years ago doing small flea markets, working my way up to some of the biggest and best vintage shows in the west. I love all the friends I’ve made along the way, this circle of friends is an amazing one. Started off as a hobby, and hopefully I will be able to quit my waitress/management job at a local restaurant, to do the shows full time.
How would you best describe your style and the items you sell? My style is shabby/cottage style. I sell vintage, handmade lace and linens, vintage china, handmade, one of a kind jewelry, and furniture, among other things.
When was your first Junk in the Trunk Vintage Market? My first JITT was September 2014
And what is your favorite part about the event? Or a favorite memory? Favorite part of the event is being in a different state, making new friends and connections. And the live music is pretty rad too.
What’s your favorite place to get away in the summer? Being a California girl, I love the beach, or anywhere I can pull my 1965 Aristocrat Lo-liner vintage trailer.
