Every now and then I get homesick and tend to take it out on my decor. Our dining room is very old school New Orleans. And my great aunt mentioned, “Your living room looks like mine!” At the time she as in the home my great-grandfather built in Galveston. I like surrounding my family with […]
This past weekend I had my booth set up at Nellie’s Barn Sale in Roscoe, Illinois. And while I was there I saw this vendor (Pork Belly Vintage) who had all sorts of cute pieces, very reasonably-priced. One of her end tables featured a decoupaged Chicago-area aviation map. Well, two of my brothers are in […]
Dana from Sugar Salvage and I decided to spend our birthday weekends selling our vintage wares at Nellies Barn Sale up in Roscoe, Illinois. It turned out to be an absolutely perfect crisp, blue, fall weekend. Lucky! I hope you guys all had a great fall weekend, too!
Another round of “I can’t make up my mind about what to do with the entry table” is in the works. I think this will be an improvement. We’re big fans of pieces that do double duty. There’s currently a desk in our living room and a 1930’s side table in the entry. This would […]
I was out just killing some time this afternoon, and happened to spark up a little chat with these two ladies inside of World Market. The daughter mentioned that she was looking for a cute cart to use as a bar and was frustrated at what she was finding. I mentioned, “I’m an antiques dealer […]
I saw this table and area resale shop a couple days ago. I just couldn’t stop thinking about it, picturing exactly where it’s going to go, how pretty it would be. And I just knew that if I didn’t go back and get it that I was going to have years of regret. And who […]
I just bought this cute little vintage recliner off of Craigslist. I knew it came from a non-smoking home, but when we got it back to the house the smell of curry was pretty obvious. Now, I love (love,love) curry. I put it on my popcorn. I love the way it smells, I love the […]
So I’ve been talking on Facebook with you guys about how I injured my shoulder pretty badly a few months ago. And following so many of your recommendations I found a vintage La-Z-Boy recliner to sleep in. It had to have good bones and be cute. I tried to mentally get into the idea of […]
I just went over to Jackson Square and freshened things up a bit.
Yesterday was Father’s Day, so I planned a trip to Vintage Garage Chicago for Dave because the theme was Vintage Vinyl. My hubby loves his old punk records and he never has time to go dig through the bins like he did when he was young and single, so I thought we’d make a trip […]
I just popped in over at the mall to spruce up a little and would like to share some pics. It’s all coming together. I like the vibe. Happy-colorful-farmhouse-vintage. 🙂 Any tips from the seasoned antique market folks out there?
We, no joke, get asked this question every single day, multiple times a day. Come with me for a ride along as I gather up a few new treasures to fix up for the shop!
