Vintage Goodness

One of my favorite places for treasure is on the move and I have been watching their facebook business page, Vintage Village with great interest as they announced they were moving to a new location.  Debbie, owner of Vintage Village, has been posting sneak peaks of the new space with a countdown to December 11th for their grand opening.

I really couldn't wait until the 11th so I decided to visit the new location and see for myself the "vintage goodness" that will be housed there.

Like a curious child, I pressed my nose to the glass and looked inside.  Oh how I wanted to go in and really look around.  I snapped this photo and went to look in another window when one of the ladies of the Village saw me and said, "Come on in, I know you are dying to see what's inside."  Whooo hooooo!  I got a first hand look and, the new slogan, "Antique and Vintage Goodness" is the definitive description.

Vintage doors and lovely windows abound.

Lots of chippy white pieces make my heart beat fast.

Dealers are slowly decorating their spaces.

Shutters, mirrors and iron beds, Oh my!

Pretty antique filet crochet piece.

Sweet little accent table and a glorious white frame.

Lovely antique fireplace mantle.  I can't wait to see this finished space packed with beautiful things.

I understand truckloads of goodness are on the way.

Head over teakettle in love with this white cabinet.

This cozy day bed calls for a good book and a hot cup of tea.

Delightful laundry basket and antique quilt is pure charm.  Another hint at what these spaces will be filled with in days to come

.  One of the great joys at Vintage Village are the people within.   I first came to "the Village" in August 2000.  I have made so many wonderful purchases there but it is the friendships that are and continue to be the jewels I treasure most.

As I was checking out, I was handed this gift box.  A gift for me?  It was a thank you from Debbie and her dealers, to me, for "tootin" the Vintage Village horn via my blog and facebook pages.  

Inside was this sweet, vintage porcelain boy "tootin a horn".  How appropriate and this will be part of my Christmas decor going forward.  I am touched by this thoughtfulness and vintage goodness.

Blessings to you and those you love and peace to all.  Sea Witch

I LOVE that they remembered you in this way - what a wonderful gift. I always sigh at your posts...I would take pictures here in Vegas, but you would just laugh at the "vintage" stores! ;-) Happy Monday, Dari! XOXO
