Rust & Ruffles - a beautiful vintage market

Friday, we drove 8 hours to Monroe, WA where a very fun early shopping experience was held.  Come Junk With Us put on a wonderful event, and it was so good to see and meet so many bloggers. 

I didn't buy anything, but I had a great reason!  I found a pair of shoes at Nordstrom that I just had to have.....but they were preeeetty expensive.  Tanner and I struck a deal that if I didn't buy anything at the market, I could have the shoes.  I agreed.  They are magical.  You can sort of see them in the picture below...but I'll have to take a new one to give them justice.  They are magical.  Oh, I already said that?  Sorry.... But they are MAGICAL!

Here are a few pictures from the night:



















So dapper...















There are the shoes....and my silly grin.  ugh. :)

The shoes look great and you look beautiful, but not sure how you could resist all the lovely things at the market!

You look so enchanting and the shoes are spectacular. You must have tremendous will power to pass up all of those lovely flea market finds. I commend you!

You all look amazing. I'm glad you posted a photo of all of you at the end as I initially thought Tanner must be really eccentric in that bow tie! I had a few teachers who dressed like that!
Love the shoes but I can't believe you didn't buy anything at the fair. I admire your will power. It's a quality that, thankfully, I don't have - otherwise I'd never get my own way all the time :)

Lucky ducky....I wish I was there, CA is so far from all these wonderful shows. I see people getting all excited in the blog world over Texas ans I get excited over WA and OR, I am not sure why, everyone says you gotta go to TX and all I want to see is the Barn Boys, Tarte and Retreat plus many others. It so look like you had a fabulous time and you all dressed so appropriately too :)i hope your week has been fabulous and thanks for sharing :)

Smiles,

The shoes were worth it, I can tell! There were so many great things! I love the sign that asks people not to throw stones over the bank, it cracked me up. It is the kind of thing that would definitely be a conversation piece if you put it in your house. Looks like you had fun!

What a wonderful show, and I just love how everyone looks so gorgeous in their vintage attire! Theresa xoxo

Although the shoes are very cute...I would have had a hard time trying to not strike another bargain after seeing all that great stuff! Good for you for having that kind of willpower!! :)
