What a year!

I cannot believe it is already Fourth of July week again! What a magical year this has been for Willie and me. We had the good luck of being able to celebrate our 1 month wedding anniversary (yes, I know…cheesy) in the wonderful Outer Banks where he proposed one year earlier. Unfortunately the weather wasn’t the greatest but that did give us an excuse to exercise our shopping abilities. Once again, the Outer Banks antique stores didn’t fail me. Here are some of my favorite items I saw.

These colorful glass pieces are just amazing!


This tiny blue vase (circa 1940s) was made by the Fenton Art Glass Company who is the largest manufacturer of handmade colored glass in the United States. For some more history go to:


 Amazing electric coffee pot set made around the 1920s.

This Nippon hand painted gold plate made in the late 1800s was breathtaking!

These didn’t look too comfy but how cool are these Victorian boots!

Girl’s Weekend before the BIG day

What an amazing bachelorette trip I had this weekend with
all my closest girlfriends! We stayed in an amazing beach house in The Outer Banks.
We couldn’t have asked for better weather, company, activities, food or
anything. It was absolutely perfect and a great way to spend my last few days
as a single woman. I can’t believe the wedding is in 10 days!! Crazy!!

Anyways, on our way home we stopped at the Williamsburg Antique
Mall. This place was enormous and a little overwhelming to be honest. We winded
back and forth through the aisles of stuff and just completely amazed at how
much “stuff” there was. Some of my favorite displays included the PEZ dispenser
collection, Star Wars Wall, salt and pepper shakers, blue and white Polish
Pottery, beautiful flower ivory vases, an awesome hutch, gems and jewels, and
my absolute favorite…modern furniture made out of reclaimed wood. I am definitely
getting one of these amazing tables! So fun to explore!

Kauai Love

Our recent trip to Kauai,
Hawaii was amazing. With the upcoming holidays, we explored the island
searching for one of a kind finds. We had the opportunity to go to two
craft/gift fairs during our trip. We found many unique island items
such as hand craved wood, local paintings/photos, locally produced candles,
jams, spices, etc. It was so nice to experience the Hawaiian culture. It was a wonderful
beginning to our holiday season!

Tallahassee Vintage

My recent trip to Tallahassee I couldn’t believe how much
this tiny little antique store has to offer! It was packed top to bottom and
was filled with the most antique jewelry I’ve ever seen. There were so many
beautiful pearls, jems, and broaches. I also found some other items that caught
my eye. Enjoy!
