What a super fun weekend we had. On Saturday, Maddie, Hanna & I met up with Laurie for lunch then for a studio/home tour. All I can tell you is that it was everything we had imagined and more. Laurie does such an amazing job of sharing her whimsical life with all of us through Magpie Ethel that it was just like stepping into the pages of her blog itself. Thanks again, Laurie for spending the afternoon with us!
Then it was off to a Monticello Antique Marketplace and a ReStore type of store before we headed out to get Plucky with the rest of the Maidens.
At Monticello, Sister & I enjoyed some Mimosa's while we browsed. Alcohol and antiques may not seem like the best combination but I promise we were careful! I got some more candy holders while Miss Maddie bought a giant jar of buttons. She has been so busy sorting them that I never got a chance to take a photo. The jar was full of beautiful colored buttons. Reds, oranges, purples, blues, and pinks. Not a black, white, or brown in the bunch! I swear there has to be some Bakelite mixed in there. Plus, she spent her report card money on them. That girl is after my vintage heart.
You know that you are headed into a good show when the booth in the lobby of Plucky Maidens is full of Pyrex. I bought the turquoise 501 before I even stepped in the door of the main show. The bunny planter and Hazel Atlas monkey shot glass were bought moments later.
I have been eyeballing these tote bags made out of vintage tablecloths for quite a while on Etsy but I have never found one that was big enough. There were a couple of booths that had them so the only problem I had was picking a pattern!
Since I have such a large collection of vintage tablecloths, something has to be pretty unique to catch my eye. Both of these prints were like nothing I had so I knew they were coming home with me.
The Plucky Maidens show is in a pretty small and intimate setting but boy do they cram the goods in there! I am sure you are pretty surprised that this is all I walked out with. But Maddie, Hanna & I were spending the night in Portland then planning on thrifting our way back down I5 on the way to my house so I had to save my pennies!
Stay tuned for next time when I share all of that thrifting madness with you. Let me tell you, it was a long day but full of treasures.
Linking up with Sir Thrift-A-Lot & A Living Space, Junkin Joe, & Magpie Monday.
Until next time,
