Sandy Bryan: Vintage Enthusiast and Owner Olive And Rose
PLACER COUNTY, CA (MPG) - Anyone familiar with the antique, vintage and shabby chic scene in Placer Valley has undoubtedly heard of Sandy Bryan. Her passion, attention to detail and love for all things vintage shine through in her businesses and interaction with her customers.
From the Olive and Rose to her Mes Amis Vintage Shows (now renamed Revelry) to her co-owned shop Tumbleweed and Company located on Vernon Street in Downtown Roseville, Bryan keeps quite busy. She began as an antique dealer in a small co-op and never imagined that she would transition a part of her business to show production, but that's exactly what happened.
Back in 2009 Bryan's antique shows began on Oak Street in Roseville and she explains how they evolved throughout the years. "They were a great hit and huge service to the City of Roseville but when the cityscape began changing with the new civic center and round-about, I continued producing the shows as The Olive and Rose and eventually moved them indoors to the fairgrounds," elaborated Bryan.
She prides herself on finding good vendors who share her love for vintage items. "It is very easy to think that booths just create themselves at our events but there is a lot of hunting, gathering, cleaning and repairing for a great item to end up in someone's booth," commented Bryan. "I love visiting each booth and learning something new about the acquisition each vendor has because every dealer's eye is different and sharing that with the customer is what make the show transaction so special and unique each and every time."
Currently the indoor Revelry shows are on hiatus for this year; however she is thrilled about the upcoming outdoor show at the Sierra College campus in Rocklin on May 26. "We are so happy to be producing our newest joint venture with the Sierra College Patrons, The Vintage Marketplace," explained Bryan. "This will be our third event together at the Rocklin campus and the entrance tickets are only $5."
Mark your calendars all you treasure hunters out there as you won't want to miss this incredible show. There will be more than 30 hand-picked vendors, food trucks, free parking and shopping to your heart's desire from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
