My mom wanted to have a girl’s day a few weeks ago. I was in. Since we both love antiquing, we planned on heading down to some local antique stores and picking out a fun restaurant to eat at.
It was a fun day, but incredibly hot. I wore my Free People Tutti Frutti Slip Skirt that I got for a steal at Nordstrom Rack (similar skirt here) with a white t-shirt, bow belt from Anthropologie and On A Wing Necklace with vintage boots. It seemed like a good outfit for antiquing. Sorry for the blurry pictures. My daughter took them and the camera is big for her tiny hands.
I wanted to share all of the pretty vintage treasures there were to be had. I did not buy anything except for a few post cards to add to my collection. You can see a new feature about them that I started on this blog here.
Vintage Maracas. The color is beautiful.
This bracelet that reminded me of peacock feathers (Heather!).
I can always spot a gnome.
This guy lurking creepily in the back was tagged as an elf. The horror! But, well, he is creepy enough for the title. He was $150. Now that may seem like a lot of money. And it is. But imagine the possibilities. How scared would your spouse/partner be of this creature?
Oh. Man. What a steal!
If only I weren’t so scared of it myself…
Here was a cute ceramic gnome candle holder. I don’t buy the kitschy ceramic stuff. I like the small felted gnomes I can hide in other objects or plant sticks or outside gnomes. But he was cute sitting on the shelf.
If I had one more room in my house, I would have sprung for this amazing ceramic Italian chandelier. It is gorgeous. The colors were perfect. The price was fair for a chandelier. So pretty!
I love the blue on this ceramic crock.
And the blue on this old plunger.
Look at the pretty turquoise jewelry!
And there was great blue grass music being played throughout town. It was a beautiful day. We even got to see this cute little dressed up fellow.
Thank you Mom for spending it with me. I had so much fun!
Have you been antique shopping lately? Thrift store shopping? I love sifting through old things. You never know what you are going to find!
P.S. I shared this on Savvy Southern Style.
