I’m currently sitting on my cozy couch with a cup of coffee and trying to wrap my mind around all the wonderful-ness that happened this weekend. If you follow along over on Instagram, you might know that I was invited to visit the Old House Vintage Market this weekend. And it was AMAZING. I made the trip on Saturday and it was so much fun–I had the chance to browse through lots of incredible vendors with tons of antiques and repurposed home decor finds. But even better I got to do a Q&A session with my amazing friend Liz Marie. It was the coolest experience ever and I think I’m still floating on a cloud from it all. I ended up bringing a few vintage goodies home with me, so I thought today it would be fun to share what I found!
Ok first up I have to share this vintage clock because it’s my best find from the weekend. It’s from one of my favorite vintage decor vendors at the event, Brooklyn Finds. and I fell in love with this the minute I saw it. In fact, I spotted it from across the building and practically sprinted over to buy it. Isn’t it amazing?! You all know I’m obsessed with black accents now, so this guy is PERFECT.
When I bought it the face of the clock was detached from the metal box, so I just used my trusty hot glue gun to secure it back in place. It was a super easy fix! And I wasn’t sure how I was going to style this clock, but lucky for me it had a little metal ring on the back that allowed me to hang it on the wall. I thought this little spot in our kitchen would be perfect.
Vintage Seed Packets
These vintage seed packets were another score from Brooklyn Finds. And I can’t even tell you how much I LOVE these–they date back to the 1920’s. Old seed packets like this can be really hard to come by, so I bought every one she had! Yep, all TEN of them came home with me.
I can’t wait to use these little packets when spring rolls around. They’re going to be so much fun to style along with spring and summer decor. You’ll definitely be seeing these again!
Here’s a few similar seed packets I found on Esty:
Vintage Cash Register Numbers
Next, I snagged a pair of these vintage cash register numbers. I only bought two, but now I kinda regret not buying a whole bundle of them. I think they’re so fun. And again, I’m loving the pop of black and white.
Here’s a few similar cash register numbers on Etsy:
Vintage Big Ben Alarm Clock
Let’s just take a moment of silence to admire this ADORABLE little vintage clock, ok?! You guys, this is a Westclox Big Ben alarm clock from the 1930’s and I’ve been looking for one of these little guys for a long time now. They’re not super expensive, but I just adore these clocks and I really want to start collecting them.
This one doesn’t work, but it’s still in great condition overall. And the patina is gorgeous. I found several similar options on Etsy and they’re all reasonably priced:
So this last one isn’t really a vintage decor find, but I had to share this necklace because I think it’s so pretty. I found this right before I left the market for the day and it’s the sweetest little necklace ever. It’s so simple and dainty, which is the kind of jewelry I love. I got this from a little booth called Luna’s Secret Garden and they’re based in Boulder, Colorado.
Well that’s all the goodies I brought home from the OHVM. I actually didn’t have a ton of time to shop because the day was so busy, but I sure love the things I found. And the whole experience was just amazing–especially the Q&A. It was so fun to chat about my journey over these past three years, my love of vintage decor, blogging and so much more. I am so grateful to everyone that came out to meet us. It was definitely a day I’ll remember forever!
Thanks so much for dropping by the blog today!! I always appreciate when you spend part of your day here with me. xo
