Vintage Village Open House

The Holiday Open Houses have begun and it always seems to kick off with the "original" Candlelight Open House at Vintage Village in Snellville.  For me, this signals the holidays as this shop always does it up right.  Candlelight everywhere with all dealers greeting you as you walk in, serving hot cider and homemade cookies, candy, and other "sugar plums", handing you brown bags to fill with treasure and the counter staff busy writing up reciepts and wrapping your purchases. For me, Vintage Village is more than a shop for treasure, it is a shop filled with friends.  People I have not seen most of the year because we all lead busy lives, but this one evening everyone comes out and the treasures you buy are only enhanced by the treasured friendships you meet and greet.  Lots of photos, so I will post those rather than add narrative to all. (all photos enlarge when you click on them)

Behind Vintage Village is a quaint little building called Hamrick House.  Pretty little thing with more vintage and antique pieces as well.  It's so nice to have two places a few feet from each other for finding treasure.

I came home with two bags of treasure and a few gifts for family so I won't mention what I purchased should they be reading this post. The Vintage Village Candlelight Open House continues tonight through Sunday this week and more items are brought in daily.  I wish I could shop each night.  Blessings to you and those you love.

It sounds divine and looks spectacular. It certainly would put one in the Christmas Spirit. I would love to visit one day. The displays are wonderful with a beautiful job of merchandising!
