Hello to all of you wonderfuls out there who read our blog! The exciting news is ready to be announced. We are moving up to the Antique Mall. There will be a few life changes coming up for me that will not make it easy for me to devote so much time at the shop, so we are compromising and doing booths. This way, we will have even more time to hunt for great old stuff and work on our furniture projects. Do not dismay-I will still keep up on the blog.
Sadly though, when you come to shop you will not be greeted by our smiling faces : ( It is a bittersweet transition for us, but we are excited to start a new chapter in our vintage loving lives! Thanks to all of you who have loved our shop and our finds throughout the past year.
We will still be here until the end of April, or until the store empties, so it is a great time to get a deal on that special something you have been wanting. Enjoy 20% off your purchases until we close, and spread the word, I don't want to have to move it all!
I just moved into my booth last Saturday. For those of you who frequent the mall, my space is the first on the left side when you walk in, in the window. You can't miss it, it is practically blinding and full of my favorite color white! My mom will be moving into her booth on May 1st. Hers will be just one space away from me. Be sure to check us out.
One more thing, we are helping out a friend open up her antique filled barn. It is full of GORGEOUS antiques that she has collected over many years so stay tuned for more on the opening of that wonderous place.

Happy Friday everyone!
I just have to start off by saying how absolutely special I feel right now. I have been so blessed this week by gifts from customers. I was given an amazing little side table, earrings, and a wire vine plant. I am so thankful for the opportunity to have met so many amazing women this past year. Thanks so much to you all for loving Vintage, but more importantly for being such wonderful friends to us. You truly are appreciated!
And since I know you are all dying to see my newest piece of furniture, here are the before and after! Doesn't it have some gorgeous carved legs?
I haven't decided on a permanent (yeah right) home for it yet, so I put it in the entryway and stuck the shoe basket on it. Not super practical but I am not known for my practicality anyway.
I seem to still be having troubles getting this post done after days of trying, but I simply REFUSE to let technical difficulties get the best of me.
We just got in a wonderful group of items this week, many of which were rescued from local historical buildings. One of our customers has finally decided to part with some of her collection after her years of preserving historical properties. You know the drill, I shall start with my FAVE!
This farmhouse desk is so very pretty. I cannot even imagine a more perfect place to sit down and relax and blog. You could not help but be a creative genius with this baby beneath your laptop. $165 (but really priceless if you want my opinion, you don't but too bad)
Of course I have to show off the chippy legs. We have mother nature to thank for that wonderful patina.
We have so many new chairs. It is hard to see the color in this picture but it is painted a light sage green and then distressed. The pad has been covered with a pink and white rose pattern vintage bed sheet. So sweet! $36
I am now wishing that I had a better picture to show this dresser off. It came out of an old boarding house in Lebanon. I always love to hear where things come from. It is nice to imagine it in it's original home. Just think of how much use it has been through over the years and it is still standing. $95
Wonderfully rusty milk can and sticks $35
White vintage metal cart $42
This is such a great little cupboard. It has three shelves and a row of hooks at the bottom to hang items like keys. It would be handy to have near the front door to stick all of those random things that always clutter the counter. $30
Cute cute little wooden chair. I have a certain photographer friend that needs to use this in a photo shoot! $40
