Welcome to Old Soul Studios, We love vintage and aged items that portray a silent story about them. We create new items from salvaged items and create new stories, kind of like the makings of "An Old Soul". We love the art of making something out of nothing, making something old into something new!

This is Fun For Us

Hi everyone and welcome back! As you know from my previous post we have been very busy getting ready for a show. Well we are two days away and have had a lot of fun getting ready. This all started about 5 months ago at the end of the spring show season. We begin the hunt for the next season. Never knowing what you can find or what will catch your eye the treasure hunt for vintage finds is on. I have been doing this for twenty five plus years and I have certain loyal customers in mind as I hunt and I am always looking for that new thing that will attract a new customer as well. This past week I have been gathering up all those finds and preparing them to take to the show Saturday. Mes Amis is the show... one post back you can get all the details.
 I love authentic primitives and with the popular French country farm house look many of the things I found will look perfect with that style.
This displays well with some of our most popular creations.
Chickens are becoming a household word, so I think vintage chicken related items should be a hit!
Our many iron garden art creations attract a lot of gardeners so I always try to find a variety of vintage garden related goods... this year the picking was good!
James has been busy building nest, one of our most popular items for the holidays. We have four different sizes of nest that he creates.
Iron stone has always been a great seller, it is getting harder to find but as you can see I did alright. This is about a third of the collection that will be available at the show.
Fun things hanging on a chain seem to get just about every shoppers attention.

We can't do a show without a good stock of our spoon tags and stamped keys! I put together a few other little shiny things just for fun to add to the rack. Just wanted to give you a little idea of some of the things you will see on Saturday. We sure hope you can drop by. If you read our blog please let us know, we love meeting new friends ~ Jacque & James
