How was your weekend? It has been raining here for days and I could really use some sunshine! To start with, I’m trying to finish up an outdoor paint project for the final installment of the Outdoor Extravaganza. Second of all, my plants are water-logged. Frankly, my body and mind operate so much better when they’ve received a good dose of Vitamin D! How about you?
Not all was lost. On Friday, one of my friends and I attended The Vintage Chicks sale. It was my first time going, and although it was difficult to navigate because of the crazy number of people, I was glad I did.
I’m not one to decorate my whole home with vintage pieces, but I love adding something here and there to bring character to a room. I was immediately drawn to these antique prints, but at over $300 a piece, I had to pass.
This birdcage chandelier hanging from a branch arbor was stunning. Imagine how beautiful this would be at an outdoor party.
If we already had a cottage, I most likely would’ve picked up this red and white 7UP crate.
I loved the shabby chic look of Deborah’s (one of the vendors) sign. She also writes a blog called Ramshackle Romance.
In this tent, we found 3 amazing antique dog prints and a bucket that my friend had to buy (basically for a song!).
We made our way to the main building, where it was pretty much shoulder to shoulder shopping. It was pretty much impossible to take any photos- sorry! This is where I bought (you guessed it!) a milk glass bowl. I love finding new pieces to add to my collection.
Our last stop was outside where I spotted these rustic tables. I was hoping the first one would be the right size to use as a side table for our basement family room, but it was too big- drats!
This second one gave me an idea for an upcoming project- any guesses?
Although I only went home with my milk glass bowl (and some kettle corn-of course!), I had a great time and will be back next year.
Do you like shopping vintage? Are there any sales or markets you like to attend?
Don’t forget to get your outdoor paint project ready for Wednesday!
