Let's Go Shopping...

My sister and I were long overdue for a shopping trip. We like to hit up our fave spots every couple of weeks, and so we headed over to The Vintage Peddler to take in the newest vintage goods and vendors. They keep things fresh there, because they have a great group of dealers, and obsessive good customers that keep them needing to bring in more vintage goodies. I've never gone in there without leaving with something wonderful.

Out and About... and some fabulous old grain sacks and fabric

Hi Everyone, I wanted to do a quick post and share a few snaps from a day out this last week. It was my Birthday and my sis and I headed out for lunch and then a stroll through The Vintage Peddler, here in Springfield. LOVE this place!!! (yes, I actually dragged myself out of my stupor to go have a chicken salad sandwich and peach tea, then do some shopping) These are phone pics, so sorry for the lack in quality. Hopefully all the great vintage goods will make up for bad photos.

Out and About for some Fall Fun

This is my favorite time of the year to be out and about.
The leaves, the cooler temps, the smells wafting from a yummy cafe;
the Autumn Colors,
...and of course browsing the fun stores here in Springfield.

New Shops at the Vintage Peddler

(I'm sorry, my blog keeps updating on it's own each time 
I join a new party and add it on my blog post...)

 I never know what to call someplace that's so totally unique...
separate spaces housed in an old manufacturing building;
shared by a group of extremely talented vendors.
A place full of vintage and curated pieces;
some new artisans and remarkable stylists,
all with a passion for antiques and vintage.

Welcome to the Vintage Peddler

Out and About... at Harrison House Market

We have so many great places to shop in our area, with tons of talented people making it all happen. Late last spring an older shopping center in Ozark, Missouri (just south of where I live in Springfield) that was a hub for great vintage goods was sold. In an instant, the vintage shops and flea market vendors that it housed had to start looking for new homes and venues. I was so excited to learn that my favorite, Harrison House Market, has found a great spot here in town.

The Vintage Suitcase

This last week I headed over to one of my favorite shops here in town. You can always count on Robin to have the most gorgeous displays and beautiful decor items. Each time I'm there I come home with some great inspiration, not to mention wanting to buy out the store. Here is just a little eye candy for you to enjoy. Remember all you have to do is click on the image for it to enlarge, then click again to get all the "details".

The color of this mantel is original blue and just stunning.

Love the doggy pillows.

This is a huge and elaborate French mirror.

These next few photos are from the "Garden District". 
This room is covered ceiling to floor with old windows.
I'ts like you're in an old greenhouse.

This antique paper umbrella is HUGE!!!

And yes, this reproduction seed box now lives at my house.
I had to have it!

Hard to tell, but this is a moss covered mirror.

The  fabric on the settee and chair slipcovers is Louis Vuitton...
so fun!

Robin has an endless supply of antique silver pieces

Chinese cabinet

Gorgeous jewelry and some chunky cuff bracelets.

If you're local, make plans to visit the
 wonderful tea room at the shop,
The Vintage Veranda.

Have a great weekend, everyone!

Having a little Fall with lunch...

Even though we all haven't dived into Fall with our home decor yet,
(OK, some of us have dipped our toes into it)
retail has to be a step ahead of the season.

So when my mom, sis, and her sis-in-law headed out to lunch last week
we wanted to try out the new tea room at The Vintage Veranda.

And of course shopping the store, The Vintage Suitcase, where Robin's touches of Fall are seen everywhere.

Robin creates the most beautiful floral arrangements and wreathes...
even the wildlife want to get in on the display!

Gorgeous Autumnal tones throughout the store.

Even a hint of Halloween

Just in case you need a "hand" with some creepy decor...

Don't you just love this great black and white Buffalo Check?

And just look at this yummy lunch. A quarter of the quiche pie, with a cup of delicious cream of roasted pepper soup. Oh so Delicious!

Be watching for more information on the upcoming Fall Open House, which will be September 14-16, with a new outdoor dining area in back.

If you're anywhere near Springfield, in SW Missouri you'll want to come visit. It's definitely a "destination spot"!
