The Vintage Whites Market...

Rarely do I want to get up early on a Saturday, but this weekend there was a mega garage sale at 2 antique stores in town!  So yeah, I got up early... :)

I spent under 40 dollars for the whole day and got so much cute stuff!  A wire planter basket, a cookbook, an old bread tin, a wooden letters game, a book, 2 hat boxes, a piano music roll, a dresser, a mirror, and a partridge in a pear tree!

I'd say it was a pretty awesome day!

So in Columbia Falls, a town about 15 minutes from me, there's this amazing antique store (pictured above) that is inside the town's original train station...!!  It was built in 1908, and has soooo much character.  It has original flooring and windows, and oh, it is just incredible.  I thought I'd snap some pictures for you to see!  So much fun!

The lighting alone is incredible, she has so many different chandeliers and lights on display, it gives it such a unique glow!

And here's the pretty gal that makes it all happen!

In other news, we did our little photoshoot.....and we came up with a name for our weekend extravaganza!

The Vintage Whites Market......

Its really hard to contain my excitement for this event...I don't know if I'll make it to May!

And I'm really sore from carrying all this stuff out to the barn yesterday!  Vanessa and I probably looked hilarious heaving a huge farm table over a fence, and carrying a bucket of vintage goods 1/4 of a mile down a walking trail...

I guess we could tell anyone who looked at us funny that we were training for a vintage relay team....Olympic sport?  I think so.

If you're in the Coeur D'Alene/Spokane/Missoula area and would like to be a part of our show, email me and let me know!  twigdecor@yahoo.com

And one last parting picture of my handsome hubby....;)

(I'm so loving this new camera, feel free to cyberslap me if I'm going overboard!)

I love the name you chose - I did try to think of something but couldn't come up with anything for you. The name you chose is great though! Your flyer for the market looks amazing - really professional! You did such a good job! I wish I could come but as I'm about 3500 miles away I doubt I'll make it but looking forward to seeing you blog about your preparations and photos of the event itself.

I am a new follower of your blog.

You and your husband are such a precious couple.
And the amount of good energy you exude through your blog is a huge blessing.
I recently started my own blog, but are very limited in my logs because of life and so forth, but i would love to have you swing by for a visit.
sincerely, marilyn

Oh, and i love the name.
I kept thinking about scriptures that refer to the table, the feast, gathering around the table to be blessed.
But, i just couldn't come up with something catchy.
I definitely like the "vintage whites market".
I love all whites and i think it will be a huge success.
best wishes.

Jennifer Juniper said...

So I was all ready to tell you how cool this whole thing is and how I wanted to go shopping with you to the garage sale then I saw the ending photo and I've forgotten everything I was going to say ;)

Kelley said...

I agree with Jennifer, that last photo is a jawdropper! What a look!

Your photos of antique stores make them look so homey and cute. The ones I've been to were cluttered and kinda smelly, so I wish I could go antique shopping with you somehow. :)
