Vintage Friday

Yesterday I met up with Joy of The Vintage Rabbit in Canton.  She came all the way from California!  It was so nice getting to meet her and her friends and the day couldn't have been more gorgeous.  There were tons and tons of vendors out so I hope they found lots of things while shopping.  Joy was so sweet and genuine and I hope she comes back shopping in Texas really soon.  Here we all are:

She also brought me a gorgeous necklace that she made, thanks Joy!

As I've said there were so many vendors out on the grounds, but I guess either my taste is changing or I'm being more picky with what I found because I only found very few things.  It's not that I didn't see lots of great things, but I was looking for the wow "jump out at me" factor.  You know what I mean.  That special something that not everyone has, that really cool item that makes your heart skip a beat when you see it, that thing that you can't walk fast enough to see (and hope nobody gets in your way because well you might just have to knock them down and say excuse on the way over them, just kidding, but you know what I mean).  I'll show you what I found this weekend in another post.

After loading up, we headed on down to Quinlan Texas to see our famous Jo (you do remember she was recently featured in the Flea Market Style Magazine) at The Hunt County Trade Center (if you'll click on this link you'll see some of the things she carries).  I did find several things with her, but as usual I always get to talking and forget to take pictures.

Our final stop was in Athens.  I don't know what it is about Winnie & Tulula's that just always seems to amaze me with all the decorating talent that's in this shop, just take a look :


They recently had a Wedding Reception here and the big screens were used as part of the reception.  Aren't they fabulous.

Look at this awning in Margo's space.  You all know how I feel about awnings!

I'll also show you this weekend what else I saw in Canton. 

Today I'm joining Debra today for her Vintage Inspriration Friday posts, so be sure and stop over and see her too. 

Happy Friday to you all.

  8. what a great time ya'll must have had! I know what you mean....I'm getting "picky" too when it comes to shopping. I just can't get everything that I like....not enough money or room in my house. So I've learned to have fun looking and be selective.
    I think Margo's booth is my favorite. I'm a sucker for that kind of stuff.
