Market Finds


Last Saturday, Justin and I headed to the Christie Antique Show to waste away the day (in the best kind of way). Happening only twice a year, this event consists of 10 acres of delicious antique market goodness. We ended up leaving with a handful of cool trinkets for unbelievable prices (my favourite being the vintage wooden shoe forms – Justin thinks they’re weird but that’s kind of why I love them).  It was my first time perusing the bounty and it will definitely not be my last. Here’s a peek at the goodies we brought home with us. If you’re ever in the area, I highly recommend it!

      yes we’re definitely lucky here!! No shortage of fun things to do. I just wish it happened more than twice a year (or that I had known about it previous years!)

    The one thing better than your finds is how you photographed them! So pretty =)

    Such great treasures! That armoire is amazing. p.s. My Mom has some vintage shoe forms like that and I have always loved them. :)

    Oh wow, I love those vintage shoe inserts. I’ve had such a thing for them ever since I had my first job in a shoe store. There is something grown up, manly and so yesteryear elegance about them.

    Gorgeous finds!

    Is there anything more satisfying than finding the treasure amongst the tat at a market stall?
