Ahh the trinkets, I do love the trinkets! So many wonderful treasures to ooh and ahh over. I could seriously lose an entire day there.
The beauty is in the randomness of it all. The colorful ceramics, the babies with mohawks, the gumball machines, the little girls carrying what appear to be actual (as in once living and breathing) now dead and stuffed dogs (I am so not kidding… creeeepyyyy), the red sparkly retro chairs… all such wonders to behold. And yes, that pillow absolutely does say “bone jour”… you’ve just gotta love it!
We spent a lot of time at the spot where the woman lays out a giant tarp covered in huge piles of vintage clothing. I really wish I would have taken more pictures there but as you can imagine I was too busy digging ;)
This is my friend Lucie pondering a new addition to her enviable wardrobe. Laura Jane, who had to leave before I could snap a shot, found the most lovely vintage house dress. The woman selling the clothes took a liking to Laura Jane and offered her another gorgeous vintage dress for free as it had a bit of a sun-bleached area. Lucky for me the free dress was quite small so I got to take it home along with a pair of perfectly worn-in vintage Levi’s. The dress is green with purple plums and blue CLOVER leaves... how perfect is that?
Also picked up a few little treasures to send off to a distant friend. Unfortunately, I can’t show those as she’s been known to read my blog from time to time and I wouldn’t want to ruin the surprise ;) Will try to get some outfit shots up soon featuring the new dress and maybe even Laura Jane’s too if she’ll agree to pose for me :)
