we go here every week…

sometimes even twice a week…

I’m talking about an antique/consignment shop mere blocks from my house. This my friends is dangerous for me. You see, I have a teensy bit of a shopping problem, especially when bargains are involved. Yesterday M & I moseyed on over to see if anything new came in. I snapped pics of my trip….

Here are some of the cute things I spotted…


Loved this typewriter! But Mr. Weekly Bite would not be thrilled if I came home with this.


This cabinet wouldn’t work in my house… but still super cute!


Told you I have a star obsession….


Very cute and vintagey, but would not work in my casa.


I wanted to take this home with me! But is was a little pricey 🙁


I wanted to take this home too! But it was beyond super pricey…


I buy 99% of my blogging dishes & linens here. They have the best vintage glassware!


I just thought this was a cool picture 🙂

I didn’t leave empty handed. I purchased these little tin stars. These little stars will be involved in our first mother/daughter craft project.

There will be glue, there will be glitter, and I foresee a huge mess.

Oh, and there will be pics as M and I turn these little stars into Christmas tree ornaments 🙂

    I’m not into antiques, but some of that stuff is too cute. I can’t wait to see how you use the stars.

    I LOVE antiques! I would go crazy there! Tony and I go the one down the street from here often and it is so hard to not spend a ton of money there! I love those dishes!

    Man…we have a consignment shop around our house that I love, but it doesn’t have NEARLY as cute stuff!!! I love ALL of the things you posted!

    Probably for the best that I don’t live near a place like that 😉

    What a cute place! And great idea with the stars and ornaments. And finding blogging dishes there.

    I love consignment shops for this very reason! So many cute, unique pieces!

    I love that sofa! That color would never work in my house but I love the shape.

    My mom was a big into antiques when I was growing up. She’d take us to endless antique stores, which as a kid was boring as anything. Yearly, it’d be the Brimfield antique fair, which is a huge fair in MA for miles and miles of antiques.

    Now, of course, I think some of the stuff is great.

    The chair picture is awesome! Love it! I have a feeling M is going to looooove glitter! A lot!

    This place looks so adorable! No wonder you have a hard time walking away without buying stuff. I love vintage dishes/cabinets/all of the above.

    The chair setup reminds me of Alice in Wonderland! I really like the cabinet and the type writer, too. I think they’re classic keepsakes 🙂
