Out and About with Sweet Magnolias Farm

I look forward to the Vintage Market Open Houses here in Springfield, Missouri and Ozark all year. Fall is by far my favorite, and this year there is a special destination that makes it all the more fun. Abbey and Sara from Sweet Magnolias Farm have opened a wonderful spot at my fave vintage market, The Vintage Peddler, here in town.

Here are a few pics of some of the wonderful pieces I found that had to come home with me. This little orange tool box was one of my finds yesterday as I shopped the store. I'm not sure how many vendors have permanent spaces there but I imagine it's around 50-60. This little metal box is just the right size (and color) to nestle in a few pumpkins and berries.

 I also grabbed this wonderful Autumn farm sign that I found while shopping the store.
 I'm not sure where I'll put it but I'm thinking my mantel could be the spot,
  since it's about time for an update for Fall.

And this precious piece of creativity is from Abbey, 
who hand dyes fabrics and laces, then crafts each pumpkin 
lovingly for a unique and one-of-a-kind blessing.

Sara and her mom Abbey, who have been here in the Ozarks for a few years now are California girls that have found a new home in my hometown. I've communicated with them for years, and when they opened their first shop space I was so excited to finally meet them in person! Last Spring we finally were able to get together to do that.

Here are a few pics from the shop. 
It was a busy afternoon, so I didn't want to get in the way of other shoppers.
Besides, I always talk too much and never get enough photos!

You can see they are full to the brim with beautiful vintage pieces. 
If you're close to our area be sure and check out the store.
Come say Hello to Shelley Gordon the owner of The Vintage Peddler.
Chances are the gals will be there too!

  1. Oh, their wares look so good and are styled so nicely! I love what you bought, Debra. I'm off today with my Panoply sister to travel to Ohio to do some shopping. Happy Fall!

  2. Oh Debra I miss Sara and Abbey and how they use to sell on line. I love their pumpkins. I wish I lived closer I see a lot of things I would like to have in their booth. Have a great Sunday.

  3. Thanks so much Debra for the lovely post !!! It was so good to see you and Becky so glad you had a wonderful time. I love that sweet little tool box you got .. and I'm so glad you love your little pumpkin ! .. much love Sara And Abbey !

  4. Looks like a treasure trove for sure, I love what you chose, especially the tool box, and the pumpkin full of love~

  5. I absolutely LOVE shops like this! I actually went to one myself this past weekend. Too many excellent finds! Really loving that doily pumpkin!


  6. Debra,
    what a charming shop! I wish we had something like that here! I love your sweet lace pumpkin and I adore that darling orange tool box!! Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by!

  7. I enjoyed my vicarious shopping through your post and really liked the treasures you purchased. I have been making cloth pumpkins for several years now and I really liked the crocheted doily/jute combination; would be a great way to upcycle a "wounded" doily!
