Better Late Than Never....

I know......
I know.........

I promised ya'll all the
juicy pictures and great stories
of my trip to Warrenton.

It just so happened that I started my new job
the next day and I'm just getting into the swing of things

My very first stop was to

This young lady lives just a hop and a skip
down the street from me....literally.

She has some of the most amazing jewelry and
vintage finds you could set your eyes upon.

I am totally in awe of the stark contrast
between fine china and deer horns.
Jill finds a way to make it look effortless.

She has some amazing books that have such a nice patina

along with some really funky crosses made out of old license plates....cooool!

One of her biggest sellers this year
was one of these guys.
Her primitive rabbits sold super fast and are just adorable.

Perhaps Jill is best known for her
amazing handpoured candles.
The scent can't be beat and I just get
dizzy over these Mason jars with zinc lids....swoon.

One of my next stops was none other than to....


I can't even begin....begin I tell ya' to describe
Mindy's booth.

Mindy has one of the most impeccable displays around.

I was truly in love with this silver and black display.
It is simply vintage elegance with a modern feel.

This particular vignette had me hyperventilating!!!
It's vintage appeal has such a designer flair....

Mindy's take on antiques was sheer genius!!!

The best part about seeing Mindy is that she
was in cohorts with the author of these awesome creations...

Robelyn of red.neck chic was there!!!

If you have not had the opportunity to see beauty in its finest,
then RUN....don't walk over to her blog and experience
purse heaven firsthand!!!!

Robelyn is one of my long lost sisters and she never fails to
have the greatest imagination.

See this?
This is not the skirt to a frilly dress....uh uh. a purse.
That's right.....a purse.
Only Robelyn could create such whimsy

and elegance in one breath.
This purse was my fave.
The detail is simply divine.
I was going to buy one but I was getting the
"stank eye" from Mr. M.

c'est la vie!!!!

I can't wait to show ya'll the rest of the awesome vendors
and finds that I encountered on my trip...
I hope that you will enjoy them too.


  1. Those bunnies are darling. I love Robelyn's handbags...I drug mine around all week!
    P.S. PSST! Not to put too fine a line on things and I know you are super tired, but photo, that's me. In fact, I sold all those mercury glass knobs!
