Rain was expected for Mother's Day weekend, but Saturday turned out to be a beautiful day for the Mother's Day Vintage Market at Davis Street Antiques in Monroe, Georgia.
Jimmy, owner of Davis Street Antiques, pulled out the festival stops with ice tea and lemonade inside, a boiled peanut vendor at the front of the store and a lovely vintage market on the green grass side yard.
Lovely, pale blue truck greeted the market goers and teased everyone to see what was beyond it.
About 20 dealers had set up for the vintage market and there was so much to choose from.
Prices were great and people seemed to be buying lots of items.
Pretty display of a vintage quilt, silverplated teapots and a mouse in a trike.
Lovely cameo ring and German Silver dolls purse.
My friend, Cheryl, had her signature white booth that is always so inviting. I found some lovely linens and lace. This was a lovely, little Vintage Market and everyone was having a marvelous time. From here, I walked in to Davis Street Antiques to see what other treasure I could find.
Fell in love with this pretty aqua blue table shelf. Didn't purchase it, but it is a pretty thing.
Native Treasures if the newest dealer in the building and offers beautiful Native American basketry and blankets. Soft flute music can be heard in her space.
Pair of pretty Victorian chairs that have been reupholstered from an antique quilt.
This dealer always has the most unique pieces.
My friend, Cheryl, has a lovely space called Romantic Farmhouse.
Gorgeous farm table.
My friend, Lynn, also has a space at Davis Street Antiques and I adore this neat little sea shell space. Perfect for summer decorating. Now, for what I purchased at the Vintage Market and Davis Street Antiques.
Lovely 1930s net and embroidered dresser scarf.
I love vintage Lucite purses. My mother had one very similar to this one and she removed the liner and always filled it with pretty cosmetic cases, coin purses and lipstick cases covered in sparkling rhinestones. This beauty is in great condition with original rhinestones and liner. Circa 1950s.
My favorite find at Davis Street this weekend. A marvelous 1800s oak whiskey barrel. This is a Cooper made small whiskey barrel with blacksmith metal bands.
From Davis Antiques I drove to Hodge Podge and found this really cool bejeweled whistle that really blows. LOL. I'm gonna wear this when I visit my raviolis next week.
Pretty quadruple plate silver late Victorian tray. Circa 1890-1900s.
Marvelous and large santos crown is perfect for your favorite statuary. Life size crown of metal and set rhinestones.
When I got home I found lovely tulips and chocolate covered berries from my son and his family in New York and a beautiful card with a gift card to Einsteins Bagels...a favorite place of my honey and me. Popped open a pink bottle of bubbly and I say Mother's Day weekend was off to a great start. Hope everyone had a marvelous weekend. Blessings to you and those you love. Sea Witch
