Did you know about the store? Some of you do, many of you don’t. The Olive and Rose (me) and The Rusty Clover (my beastie and the best vintage vendor around) have a store on Downtown Roseville with 4 of the best vintage vendors around and we’ve been open for 2 years.

Fall is in the air and normally, we would be working on our Fall Market at this time with the show being just around the corner. As you may have noticed, Noel is our next show. It is true, we quietly cancelled our September show this year. Last year, when we booked our fall calendar we truly were not sure how my mom’s health would be at this time. A week before Noel 2015 we were talking hospice for her so we did not post a fall show with the fairgrounds. To our surprise, including the Doctors, moms health has made a big turn and she is still with us. This new treatment, autoimmune therapy, is far better than the chemo she has been treated with the past 2 years and we are grateful that she is now back at work on a part-time basis.
So we are in preparation for the Noel Vintage Holiday Market – our winter show with more excitement celebrating the holidays, bonding as a team and family with even more strength!
Save the date for the next show – November 18th and 19th, at our same spot – the Placer County Fairgrounds. We are so excited many of our vendors are returning including the personalized ornaments of Lindsay Ostrom (creator of cuteness), Michael Covert with his beautiful fine linens, Mona Clevenger with her wonderful clothing and smalls, Julia Metcalf and her sidekick surprise, and so much more I will share soon. New vendors may make it in but we shall see. Stay posted for more details as our line up develops.
Enjoy our video of past Noel shows to get your spirit going!

In the early 2000’s, the Sierra College Patrons of the Arts were hosting a show at the private garden of one of the patrons homes in Placer County. The home grew to one of the areas first private outdoor markets – long before outdoor shows were popular outing as they are now. Eventually, the neighbors had a hard time with the traffic flow and our Patron could not host her show anymore. This fundraiser has been sorely missed and long overdue; with much planning and hard work, the Patrons, along with The Olive and Rose, are so happy to revitalize the show onto the Sierra College Campus.
On May 28th, the old show will make its debut again. With 30-40 vintage and handcrafting vendors along with a variety of food vendors, the show will open at 9am with a $5 admission fee. The parking will be free that day for all customers visiting the show. In addition, ticket sales will be available ahead of time at EventBrite for customer convenience.
The show closes at 3pm so come early to get the best deals. This one day event is expected to be a great fundraiser for the Sierra College Patrons of the Arts who support the Arts and Humanities for the College. This will be no exception and we hope that this will be the beginning of many shows to come.
We look forward to thrilling our Olive and Rose customers new and old with vintage treasure, handmade gifts for friends or self, great food, a gorgeous spring setting, and a wonderful fundraiser for the Arts. See you in Rocklin – 5000 Rocklin Road, Rocklin CA. Follow the signs to the show.
I recently submitted my name to another show who was seeking articles for vintage and antique related stories. I am not sure why. I am late for work (first day of tax season at the office officially) and I should be getting ready. But it was one of many impulsive things I do.
Is blogging dead? Do people really read them or are we so enamored with visual things now? I am not really sure – I think I just have been enjoying the writing of more than just a one line text on facebook – haven’t done much of that lately.
What do you think?
Its already the second week in and I am in a coffee house working on catching up on paperwork, updating multiple websites and freshening up our media for all of you. I do have to be honest 2015 was an odd year. I only did two shows outside of our own as mom was sick with cancer. I never realized how overpowering the disease was until it struck moms home, my neighbors home (5 year old with leukemia) and my boss all in the same year – 2015. I have to admit – drawing inspiration for others has been a difficult task – finding beauty in vintage had to be taken down to its simplest forms – things of nature, shapes and natural the wear of wood or metal or crinkling of paper. Our Newcastle warehouse also moved in 2015 closer to home (Roseville) quite unexpectedly and I learned the value of our husbands (Katy and I) and leaning on others to help. I learned the value of our dealers in the store – old and new and how wonderful people can be.
While my hardships were not as hard as moms, my little neighbors or my boss – I am slowly accepting that its ok to be a little tired because it allows me to get more strength from within. I hope that makes some sense. I have also grown from my vintage community and the fun times that we have in junking in the oddest dirtiest and kickass places. I realized its where I can really let myself be me and I treasure those places and that community even more. I am really excited to have the hubbys go with us to Texas this year to experience some of what we get to see and meet many of you out there that we know, the places we eat, the parties we enjoy and the Texas you just have to experience in person – there is no other Paradise like it.
A year ago this time, we thought moms cancer was gone and committed to a heavy spring season – Junk Bonanza in San Diego (Feb. 19-20) , a move up in the date for Mes Amis Spring -(March 4-5 to launch the areas show season), a new show for Sierra College Patron of the Arts (May 28th), and Farm Chicks in Washington State (June 4-5). With commitments made and contracts paid, little did we know mom would get sick and this year she would be facing the end of her cancer and life. Mom is positive – mom is strong and the East LA in her will not let her stop hoping and believing that somehow things will be ok. She grew up tough and she is not worried – I guess then I wont be either. As a planner – its hard not to be prepared. As a junker – you never know whats around the corner for you so I will draw on that experience and let it guide me through this next spring. Thanks to all of you that have lifted up mom in your prayers – pray for all of the cancer patients you know and their peeps around. They appreciate all of it.
As for the Spring ahead, I cannot wait to continue to find inspiration in the simplest forms – color, tone, mood and people. I love how our industry continues to blossom, bloom and fall back to its old traditions and lines all at the same time. Go back to your old magazines (I know you have some) and you’ll see what I mean – the rooms look the same only the wall colors have changed! I hope to continue to share with you via FB and instagram – thanks for checking in!
Have an awesome launch to your year! Enjoy your journey – savor the good and the bad, you need both. I cant wait to cross paths with you!!
