Please welcome our new vendor, #504 Nichole Purviance also known as “Red Bird Vintage Market”.
Her booth is located in the NE Corner of the Third Floor and she started with us on January 1, 2016
Nichole specializes in vintage glassware, specifically Pyrex. You know, the colorful stuff with the fun patterns!
Why is current Pyrex so boring?
As to why she got into this business, she says “I’ve always enjoyed antiquing. When I was a little girl, my mother used to take me with her when she went and I always had fun looking at all the interesting and unique pieces. I got into vintage glassware because I enjoy the variety. There’s lots of fun, colorful pieces out there. I personally collect certain patterns and decided it would be fun to share the other pieces I find with those that enjoy them as much as I do.
Other occupations? This is IT!
Nichole is also interested in interior design and keeping up with the latest trends in home remodeling and decor and trying her hand at a little “DIY”.
JoBeth Nastar & Sharon Schulze known as “It’s All Good” became a part of the River Market Antique Family in July of 2015.
You can find their space on our 3rd floor, ask for dealer #145’s space.
After many garage & estate sales, they decided to get into the actual fun part of business by becoming vendors.
When not antiquing, JoBeth likes to fish, do anything outdoors and read while Sharon’s other hobbies include scrapbooking and photography.
Sharon is retired from the record manager and archivist business and JoBeth is still active in website sales.
David joines River Market Antiques in February 2015.
You can find his booth on the 2nd floor, South Side aisle
David’s favorite things are from the 1930’s through the 1960’s. “I like products that have clean lines and a modern look”. ” I don’t consider myself an expert in any particular merchandise.
He started buying at second hand stores when young because “I couldn’t afford new things”. He grew to appreciate the quality and design so started collecting and his collections grew to a point that he decided he better start selling to make room for living.
David’s other occupation is program manager at Butler Manufacturing.
Hobbies and interests outside of antiques is music, old movies and architecture
