Mediocre photography, more gadgets and my mom's name

Happy Saturday everyone! Some pictures to share. I wish we were better photographers but sadly, for now at least, you have to look at mediocre photography. Nothing new in this picture, just the green buffet that so many people love but it just hasn't been right yet. I think that sometime soon someone will take it home.
I am still loving this possum belly counter and the black shelves on top.

I think this wicker chair and footstool are sooo cute for fall. Can't you just imagine cuddling up on your porch on this set? (either that or wishing you had a porch in the first place : ) )

Beautiful brass twin bed.

There is so much to list from this picture that I love! To start, the columns are pretty awesome. Also, the door resting on top of them is adorable and has some neat old hardware on it. It is a fairly small door so I am not sure what it was originally for but it sure works where I've got it! The brown wicker rocker is gorgeous as well. I could keep going but there is a lot to say since I love it all!

Festive aren't we? Didn't you know pumpkin signs and garlic trailing out from a rustic vintage bucket is totally in for fall?

Oh Christmas...I couldn't hold myself back Tuesday afternoon. I had to bring out some of my xmas pile. I have been planning and saving stuff for this theme for a couple months now. Maybe it is just me but I LOVE (do I use this word too loosely? Nah) the rustic look with the pinecones and kitchen gadgets etc. I am so excited to bring it out front in just a few short weeks!

More of my crazy rusty Christmas! And guess what? We have already sold Christmas signs. Guess I am not the only crazy one.

This just might be my favorite window display to date (I have a biased opinion...I did this one). It might be tied with the black and green window my mom did a couple months back. Either way, there is no denying that we totally rock at window displays.

Side note: I just realized that I always refer to my mom as, well, my mom, so for those of you that don't know her first name it is MariAnne. And better yet, for those of you that don't know my name, it is Brittany.

This is such a pretty vanity. It looks great with the fall colors. It is on hold for someone until the end of the day. Hmmm...what will replace it in the window once it is gone?
Don't forget that we have lay away plans for any items over $50. Now is a great time to lay something away and get it paid for in time for Christmas. So if there is anything you love, put the bug in your hubby's ear about your favorite vintage store. We are also going to be selling gift certificates. It is the perfect gift idea for anyone who likes to shop with us.
If you are like me and your extra decorations are taking over every inch of available closet space, you should know that we sell consignments. So if you have "stuff" you would like to clean out, e-mail us at or give us a call at 541-981-2767.
Well it has been nice being able to blog again. Thanks so much for all of your support and most of all for loving vintage along with us. -B

sorry, thanks and you're invited

I finally have a functional computer at home so the first thing I am doing is apologizing for the major lack of new posts! We are currently using a different computer at the store that is making it difficult to upload photos and since I am completely and utterly technologically challenged, I gave up. I have been hearing that people are checking in to see new pictures of the store and obviously there aren't any, and for that you have my sincere apologies. Just hearing my voice (err you know what I mean) will have to give you your vintage fix for now, unless of course you stop in and see us!

The Market had a new face last Saturday. For anyone who might have stopped by the store you got to meet our dear friend Penny. It was so lovely to have her there and I have a feeling you may be seeing more of her in the future! Thanks a million Penn ; )

We have been busy little bees getting things ready for Christmas. In case you didn't know, the evening of Nov 4th will be an open house of all of the downtown shops. We will be closed Nov 3rd and 4th to get everything ready and will be reopening at 5 pm on the 4th for the big holiday reveal. We have all sorts of projects in the works that we are so excited to share. In fact, I just unpacked my sewing machine after that bad boy had an 18 month hiatus. Now we are back in business, although I am 99% sure my husband missed most of the audio on Monday Night Football : ( Thanks for not complaining love. So, you are all invited to come downtown at 5 pm on Thursday November 4th if you want to get the first glimpse at Christmas down at the Market.

I have been brainstorming some fun evening event ideas for the store so stay tuned for more on that. I really need to get organized so I can follow through on at least a few of the many ideas that I have bouncing around inside of my head.

Please don't give up on me, I promise I will get pictures posted soon! Thanks so much for being the best blog readers and for loving vintage. Until next time -B
