This weekend has been fabulous. First, one of my closest friends gave birth to her second baby girl. I am a very proud Auntie Woah Woah for a second time (this new little one’s big sister has coined this name for me, aka Auntie Lo Lo. Lauren is hard for any child under 3 to correctly say!)
The next day, my favorite junk-loving friend and I hit up one of our favorite antique stores, called the Stratford Antique Center, in Stratford, CT. We brought her two young boys with us, and I’m sure the store owners thought we were crazy. But they were SO well-behaved!!! I think we proved it’s totally okay to bring your children to an antique store. Which is a good thing, because when the time comes I’m sure I’m going to be doing that a LOT. 🙂
I snapped some pictures with my iPhone so you can see the amazingness that is this store. It’s a massive warehouse where different vendors stock and restock their booths for you to shop. It may just be my favorite place in the world.
I loved this chair. Friends of ours purchased two for their backyard!
I think this was a scale of some sort? I can’t remember off-hand, but I loved it! Way over my budget, however.
A letterpress cabinet….beautifully yummy.
Do you know how expensive this old peanuts tin was? Like, over $50. For a peanuts tin. Yeah.
But I loved the cabinet that held it.
Love this hoosier cabinet. Im hoping to find one in my price range someday.
And a vintage Louis Vuitton. I love you. I wish you weren’t $400 so you could live with me. But sadly, we were not meant to be.
I purchased a few items for our home that I’ll show you a little bit later on, but I had to share this one thing…this really amazing rusty turquoise toy Jeep. A friend of mine recently found out she is going to be giving birth to a baby boy and they’ve chosen vintage trucks as their room theme! I saw this and immediately thought of her…
…and had to get it. I’ve been trying to convince myself it’s totally okay to keep it. Not that I’m even pregnant or anything…but just in case God decides to bless me again with a baby boy in the future? Right? No? I know….completely irrational. 🙂
What would you do? Give it, or keep it? Am I horrible? It will be a tough one to part with!
