Howdy ya’ll!! Hope everyone had an awesome weekend, doing something fun! This past weekend, the Mr. and I, along with my parents, packed up Sunny baby and headed out to a very special event in Richmond, VA. We got up early Saturday morning and attended the 3rd Annual Vintage Home Market, at the Richmond Raceway (not that I wanted to wake up extra early after working a long week, but my mom insisted we go to the show early).
I’m glad we did go early…I was so surprised to see all the “sold” tickets on items once we arrived! This show has a strong following and the good stuff goes QUICK! So if you decide to go next year, go early!! You’re probably asking what makes this show so unique? What I liked about this show is that it combines flea market finds, handmade, up-cycled items, high quality antiques and barn found objects – all in one place! So if you read magazines like Flea Market Style or follow blogs like Chez Fifi, this is the show for you. Here is just a smattering of some of the fun and funky things we saw there…
I love this sweet little chippy white child’s chair…and I’m always a sucker for anything lavender!
I fell in love with this desk. The photo doesn’t do it justice…the craftsmanship on this piece was stellar and who wouldn’t love to fill up all of those little drawers! So much storage!
Ya’ll know my passion for antique kitchen cupboards…too bad my kitchen can’t fit in any more! This booth had several and a few had already sold.
Check out the chippy paint on this old jelly cupboard! I could see this as a buffet or in someone’s entry way with a cool mirror placed on top!
There was also some amazing jewelry to select from…made out of vintage buttons, brooches and typewriter keys.
Do you like garden inspired or shabby chic decor? If so, there was a lot to see and choose from…
The Mr. had to talk me out of purchasing this adorable vintage toy globe for Sunny baby’s room…how cute is that??!!
The Mr. was also eyeing these vintage suitcases until someone else purchased them just as he was pulling out his wallet…oh well…you snooze you lose at this show!
I thought this adorable wardrobe was a nice versatile piece for any room…especially for a little girl’s room.
By the end of the morning, we needed a break, so we grabbed some free cookies and southern sweet tea…and also had our family portrait taken in the photo booth area! I think Sunny baby liked the feather boa…what do you think?
Never too early to get the kids interested in home decorating! Ha!
