Last week I posted about an awesome barn sale that was taking place at Kim’s house, as well as the St. Croix Valley Vintage Crawl. Since the weather forecast for Saturday was less than stellar, my sister, my friend Terri and I decided to participate in the Crawl. If it’s going to be stormy all day, why not spend it checking out some fab vintage shops?
That picture is probably a little misleading since I already had that scale and flour sifter. It’s what’s underneath those items that is new and deserves ‘find of the day’ status.
I bought this lovely jelly cupboard at Kim’s barn sale. I just couldn’t resist it. The color was perfect, the size was perfect, and I’ve always wanted a jelly cupboard.
Most people might think they should use this piece in a kitchen or maybe a dining room. Not me. I’m going to use it in my bedroom. There are shelves inside that hold folded t-shirts and jeans, while the two drawers are perfect for socks and undies.
This cupboard suits my style so much better than my old 90’s cherry colored armoire. I’m so happy with it despite the fact that I wrenched my back while moving it in!
I still need to figure out what I want to keep on top of it. I’m not really going to leave the scale and the flour sifter up there. I’m going to wait and see what comes my way.
I also purchased this old iron foot board at the barn sale.
I haven’t found the perfect spot for it yet, but it will definitely go in the garden somewhere.
I also came home from the Crawl with this perfectly aged blue metal stool.
I purchased it at My Sister’s Cottage. It was one of those things where I just had to have it, even though I didn’t know where I would use it. You know how that goes, right? You carry it around your house just looking for the right spot. This stool found a home relatively quickly in the kitchen.
I’m sure you’ll see more of it in future photo shoots. It’s the perfect shade of blue!
So stay tuned!
