If I become president and my house

Happy Friday, can you believe another week has already come and gone? I figured I should share the goods since I have been slacking for a while. There are some very cute new things and even some things you all missed out on seeing since I took so long to post new pictures. We are very excited for the next junk swap. I need to get my buns in gear and figure out what I am bringing. Hmm.. More on that later but for now, new lovlies.
This looks like one massive cabinet but it is actually two pieces sold separately. The top cabinet happens to be sold and waiting to be picked up so boo if you love it : ( The lower cabinet, however, is still for sale and oh so darlingly chippy. This level of shabbiness is not everyone's cup of tea, but I really adore it. When you see a piece like this, you just know it has been well loved, and would have some great stories if only it could talk.
Close up of the lovely little drawer. Here you can really see how much this bad boy has been through. $295
Concrete quail, oh so cute for inside or out, and even a little mossy. $15

I was soooo excited to come across these old books that were actually affordable! Man people always want an arm and a leg for them. They are a popular item out in the blog world right now. They are the perfect finishing touch for any little spot that needs a little something. Stack of 2 $8

We have another bistro set to replace the one that was oh so popular and could have sold 10 times over. This one is about the same size, but the shape is a bit different. And oh yes, it has a creamy finish so it is hard not to love! 3 piece set $175

The two vintage locker baskets that we had both sold (sad day for me!), but we have this cute little green one to replace them. It really is a reproduction but still fun and functional. $20

Horrid lighting, I know but as I have previously expressed, I am not much of a photographer, so we are going to have to work with what we've got here. In this display are five, count 'em, five, of my fave items we have here at the market right now.
Numero uno-the sweetest little chair ever! If I ever become president, all dining chairs shall be replaced with these. $40
2. The shabby mirror made of antique moulding $40
3. Super sweet shabby little table $125
4. Another old book stack $8 and drumroll.....
5. The shabby stool. Another thing you just can't help but love right? $35

Just thought you might appreciate another shot of this little dandy.

Here you can see the layers of paint showing through. First is that darling milk paint green, and next pink, followed by what I hope is it's final layer, white!

We set the brass bed up again. Doesn't this just make you want to curl up and take a nap?
On sale $275

Again, here is the pink medicine cabinet. It looks great paired with this white dresser. The cabinet could be the quirky little addition that one of your rooms needs. It would be the perfect unexpected twist in a room other than a bathroom.
Dresser w/ pink glass knobs $125

This little cabinet is a newcomer to the shop. The color doesn't show up very well in this picture but it is a yellowy green color. $75

We loved this cake plate and lid. It is large enough to hold a pretty good sized cake, but why not put a bird and nest inside? $35

Cute little white birdhouse $10

Congratulations, you made it to the end! Thank you so much for reading our blog and we always enjoy it when you come down to the shop to say hi! Have a great weekend everyone.

PS If anyone out there loves to snoop in on other people's houses as much as I do, you might like to look at my blog, Stuck on Gray, which you can find by clicking here I post about projects that I am working on in my house, and once in a while, I get them finished!

Vintage find sharing

Each time our customers take home treasures from the shop I always wonder (and sometimes ask) what is their plan for that piece? In some cases, I personally have spent hours shopping for the piece, sanding and painting it, lugging it down to the shop, and arranging and decorating it. Therefore, I feel it is only natural for me to wonder where it will end up, will it be loved and appreciated? etc. Crazy of me, I know, because I know that all of you take our vintage finds home and make your homes look amazing with them. But still, I love to see pictures of what you ladies decide to do with them.
Starla bought this mantel from us last month and might I say, it is the perfect addition to her bedroom. Yes, she is lucky enough to have that much extra space in her room! If you can't tell, this is me being VERY jealous. The picture is a bit blurry but I think it looks darling and goes perfectly with her other decor. Thank you Starla for sharing!
I would love to see where your treasures end up, so e-mail me before and afters (or just afters)and I will share them on our blog. Send pics to
Also, there are only 4 spaces left for our junk swap next Wednesday night so be sure to come in and sign up if you want to join in. The Market is adding a couple of special "junk" items in the swap so you won't want to miss it! Happy snow week everyone, keep your fingers crossed.

Hello there, I forgot to bring my camera today so I am sorry to report that there will be no new pictures today but we have so many adorable new things so I will be posting pictures asap.

I am very excited to announce that we will be hosting another Junk Swap! Here are the details. The fun will begin on Wed. March 2nd at 7:15 pm. The cost is $10 per person to participate. Here are the rules.

Each person brings 2 home decor pieces (around $20 value per item) they wish to rid their house of (new or vintage)

Items do not need to be wrapped.

You could combine several small items to make up one larger item. Clear as mud? Call me if this makes no sense.

Cabinet, locker baskets and junk swap?

I tried but had troubles uploading pictures so they are all out of order. I am in a bit of a rush but I thought I would at least post some new pictures.

I just sold this wonderful farm house cabinet this afternoon but since it is so pretty you still have to look at it. We have two similar cabinets coming in this week so if this is your cup of tea, be sure to check back ( :

I absolutely can't scroll through without mentioning these vintage locker baskets. I know I say I love everything and it is my favorite, but I truly mean it when I say it about these. I see them all over blog land with all sorts of treasures stowed inside. They have a way of adding a bit of vintge charm to any room. Love love locker baskets!

Oops here it is again, still just as gorgeous!

My photos do this vintage medicine cabinet zip for justice but in person, it is so so darling and pink pink pink!

Ok that was a pathetic grand finale but I promise I will do better next time. Your vintage eye candy needs will just have to be satisfied by this quick post. Until next time! B
Oh and P.S. The Market will be hosting another Junk Swap Wednesday March 2nd at 7:15 pm. We had a fabulous time at our trial swap and everyone left with things they loved so all in all, I would say it was a success. The cost is $10 per person to participate.
