My Finds from the Old House Vintage Market

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 funI 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!

Vintage wall clock. Farmhouse style decor in the kitchen.

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

Farmhouse style decor.

These vintage seed packets were another score from Brooklyn Finds. And I can’t even tell you how much I LOVE thesethey 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!

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.

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:

 

Botanical Necklace 

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 amazingespecially 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

    What a wonderful way to spend a Saturday! Sounds and looks like it was a great show! I too love black accents I love it with the primary colors too. I collect clocks ⏰ and have wanted a wall decal with the quote from Lord of the Rings, “only you can decide what to do with TIME you have been given” and maybe I will succeed with this house we’ve been building. It’s been a fascination since childhood, the faces always intrigue me. 🤪

    I love the clock. I have several clocks as decor pieces and half of mine don’t have a battery in them. Feng shui experts would say this is a no no but I’m not worried. Thanks for sharing your experience and shopping finds. I like pieces of black in each room.

    Thanks for sharing this post. I’m sure I would have loved being at the vintage market. All your purchases were great but my favorite was the Big Ben alarm clock. Was the black clock in your kitchen an antique or a reproduction. I’ve never seen any clocks like this before.

    kind off subject but do you wear false eyelashes and what do you know about the magnetic kind. I trust your judgement so thought I would ask. thank you

      I have tried the magnetic lashes but I just couldn’t make them work for me. I love the little individual false lashes. They’re super easy to put on and they are VERY natural.

    Hey Sarah! I love the clocks you bought, the numbers, and those non-GMO seed packets! I wonder if the seeds might still grow? lol! Back when I was younger, I made a really cute wreath out of a grapevine wreath, some sunflowers, small clay pots, which I stuck some of the seed packets in, some greenery, and some small garden rakes like you’d get from hobby lobby. I arranged it all, glue gunned it down and sold it for $45.00, which was a lot for a nice wreath almost 30 years ago, lol!! Feel free to use that idea! Those seed packets look so cute on wreaths and can be used so many ways. Glad you had a good time at the market! 😁
