Bee & Mason has been around now for 
just over a year and in that year 
it has gone places I never dreamed.
Well, we now have taken another path down
the road of vintage.....

I missed having a "shop" for many reasons
and kept thinking when the time is right
I would find a new one or it would find me.
It hasn't until last Sunday.

I was cleaning up and organizing 
after the Plucky Maidens market on Saturday
and figured I would play around taking pictures of things.

That night sitting at the computer and cruising Etsy
I thought "why not open and Etsy shop."
That is exactly what I did with two items.

Well it has been 6 days of learning how it all works
(still really haven't figured that out) and posting
new items to keep it all interesting. 

I have to say, I haven't had this much fun
since my last show. 
Ok, that probably isn't a good measurement 
since it was just last Saturday
but you know what I mean.

It would be great if you all could stop by the shop,
add it to your favorite 
and give me any feedback you might have
about the photography, the descriptions, prices etc.
I want this to be a success and a positive one
and need all the help I can get. 

Here are some of the beauties I have listed.


stop by....

shop local....
or at least small box....

I look forward to your thoughts.

i love bird cages but
i don't like the idea of keeping birds in them.
maybe it's an architectural thing
but i really have a funny obsession with bird cages.
i found this art deco beauty today.

here are some ideas of what to do with a bird cage
other then trapping a beautiful bird and locking her up.




pretend bird


in portland we are for some reason famous
for putting a bird on it
well in this case i say
"forget the bird, and go for the cage"

a HUGE thank you to all 
who came out too support us at the 
Plucky Maidens Vintage Holiday Event

we can not thank you all enough.

as usual we met some fantastic people 
and had the pleasure of sharing the room with
some of the pluckiest vendors.

Just Chic
 The lovely gals of Just Chic.
The very plucky vendors 
who kept us laughing.

Lisa of ? because I left her business card
in my "office" box which is still on the truck.
but did you all know she is a writer of mystery books?
will we be characters in her next?

and Lola's who had the the most
lovely jewelery.

of course there were other plucky maidens...
so many that i barely got pictures of some
on our floor. 

Chris of Mack & Momma
with her wonderful smile.
mack & momma

Tawny and all her gorgeous jewelry.

Julie of ? (again, the card in the truck)...
she had the best collection of vintage Christmas.
i bought a vintage tree topper from her as well
as grabbing a few quick pics.

i really do need to get better at taking pictures
and not loosing cards so i can remember
all the amazing vendors i meet.

there were so many others that i just didn't
get to see or saw so quickly without my camera.
you just had to be there.

of course i remembered to snag a few of my own space....

a ransom of silver

colorful baubles


more cocktail accouterments

do you see a theme?

affordable housing....

gift tags

advent calendar hand knitted by my mom....

we had so much fun we really would have loved
another day to hang with all the lovely plucky folks.

a BIG thank you to my mom for hanging with me
and my Mr. O (the pluckiest guy around)
for schlepping my goodies up and down the stairs.

and of course we can't forget a special 
shout out to the pluckiest of maidens,
Pam & Maria
for putting on another fantastic show.
