Yesterday was such a good day for my vintage soul! I got out poking around a little after being home bound for awhile. I didn't have to go far, because I stopped into my own shop first and found a new merchant, Vestige Goods, had been installed while I was gone. She's got great stuff!
But there's always great stuff at Vintage Market & Design! (Makes it a little tricky to operate out of there.)
Vestige Goods had these fabulous olive buckets. I haven't seen them in Albuquerque before, and thought I'd have to go to Texas or California for one. We're crazy for it!
I found this coffee pot a little while back at another market. I"m sure loving the rustic stuff lately!
Edward of Vintage Market & Design produces these gorgeous cards. I can't help but buy a few every time I come in.
I got these for graduation and birthdays. I love their classic vintage vibe and that they're not too frou frou. It can be pretty limiting finding cards for men. Ya know what I mean?
There are also these delicious flavors of soap in the shop.
Edward designed the packaging. Each one different, but all of the elements he uses just speak to me and say, buy, buy, buy! Haha. (So I do.) Aren't they beautiful? They smell so heavenly!
I found the humongous antique basket at one of my haunts yesterday too. Thrilled beyond words. There's no faking that patina!
Now I have to tell you that I have a thing for vintage wicker planters too, and once in a while I find them with their original finish. I've let too many of them go, so I'm going to try to hang onto this one for awhile. It just speaks everything I'm always saying to myself these days!
Vestige Goods also carries Nina Hartmann and Jeanne d'Arc Magazine!!!! I had waffled on buying Vintage by Nina until seeing it in person. Ghaaaaah! Love it!
It's going to be very hard to top that for awhile! I wish I could get to some of the great markets that are happening all over the country/world this weekend, but this is going to have to do it for me!
Ya'll have fun!
