I admit that, even as a seller, one of the best things about The Vintage Marketplace is the shopping! There’s not really many vintage clothing items, but I did find some pretty fabulous finds this time. In fact, more than I was expecting! Haha. I was a bit naughty. But I want to share my new/old pretty things.
Warning! Lots of pics ahead!
My first find was this super cute sewing caddy I got from Rita of Mammabellarte. She is one of the two ladies who runs the show, and when I went over to her booth to ask a question I spied this little cutie and snapped it up for only $20! Beats the normal shoe box or plastic bag next to the couch for holding evening projects ;)
It even has a little shelf inside for holding thread!
These pretty little floral furniture appliques also came from Rita.
These cute little earrings were made by Janis of Graceabounding‘s daughter. She’s saving up to go on a choir trip to England and was selling these cute little handmade earrings to stash away money for her trip. I am a sucker for cabochons and filigree. I want to highlight some of Janis’ lovely work in an upcoming blog post.
All of these came from the same seller, at different times during the weekend. As a inside scoop, sellers will often bring new things the second day, so keep your eyes peeled and shop early!
I can always use more lace, and this one was darling and would be perfect on antique style undergarments
When talking on Friday, she was nice enough to mention she had vintage fabrics, so she brought these on Saturday for me to paw through. These two had to come home. The floral will be a 1940s house dress (complete with rick rack), and the blue will be a 1930s sporty dress.
And then my husband found these two hats for me from the same seller! Quoth he, “If I didn’t get them I knew you’d kill me.” Lol! He knows my weakness for hats, and the sillier the better!
And lastly, I bought these two darling items from Sweet Magnolias Farm for my mom. Since she’s seldom online I know I can post the photo here without ruining the surprise. I have lots more photos to share soon from Sweet Magnolias Farm, since I want to highlight this fun company run by a mother/daughter duo- Abbey and Sara.
