Merry Happy

Merry May Vintage is a boutique housed in a throwback trailer. Usually around this time of year its owner, Ashley Eaton, would start toting the mobile shop around town to various events and festivals. But when her generator was stolen earlier this year, Eaton had to come up with a backup plan for getting her goods to her loyal shoppers.

Her solution? Bring the customers to her. Eaton will host the Merry May Vintage Sale in her backyard at 1430 East Edgemont Avenue. Merry May fans will find everything from Eaton's trademark girly clothes and cute accessories to bigger items she wouldn't be able to fit in her trailer, like furniture, all at deep discounts. Eaton says that without the generator she and her trailer will be out of comission through spring, so this might be your last chance for a Merry May fix for a while.

Shop the sale at 2 p.m. Saturday, November 9. There's no charge for admission. And Eaton says her mom will supply the snacks. Visit
