Saturday J and I ventured to Vintage Village, a cute little collection of antique shops in North Raleigh.
This was the first time I had been, and I cannot believe I have lived in Raleigh a whole year without knowing about this place!
Each shop had so many things. My favorite shop was SuzAnna’s Antiques, where each booth had so many unique items.
I love children’s books. One day when I have kids, I think it would be fun to have old vintage books filling up a bookcase.
I like this vintage pelican ad, but have no idea where I would put it in our apartment:
I love this old red table. I need a table at the entry of our apartment, but this was a little too wide.
I know this chair is rusted, but I love the blue/brown color combo and it reminds me of a chair my grandfather used to sit in for hours tending to his garden. Also, this wooden birdhouse would be lovely in a garden.
Outside there was a section of old shutters and doors. I have thought about using a window shutter for showcasing pictures or notes, but I didn’t buy anything Saturday.
Looking back, I wish I had bought this colorful picture:
What some call junk, others call treasure! I ended up not buying anything, but I am so happy to have found this little antique haven! Perhaps after assessing my apartment, I can make a wish list of vintage things I’d like to buy.
Do you enjoy antique shopping? Is vintage decorating your style, or do you see it as a bunch of junk? I’d love to hear!
