Vintage Gathering and Beyond

A Vintage Gathering Flea Market in our own Battle Ground, Washington would not disappoint. These women have put together a great show for all. They coincide their sale with the Barn House Sale, allowing for a great day for shopping. Next sale is July 31st, so save your dollars, between Barn House and Vintage Gathering, there will be some serious shopping happening. You won't want to miss out.
These sweet plates I bought from Michelle of My Shabby Passion, Michelle is one of the sweetest people I know. I remember last year I saw her at Farm Chicks, she had flown over to go to the sale, and had to buy some vintage suitcases to haul all her treasures home, a true vintage treasure finder, I am thinking, how about you?
Here is Annette and I, Annette has Andy's Attic, she had a space here and sales at Uncovered Ruby, you'll want to check out her finds.
This beach chair says summer all over.
The bold crisp colors were very prevalent here at this sale, something for every one's taste.
Wow look at that red. So clean and crisp, perfect for a vintage camper or just camping, don't you think?
This table setting says Vintage all the way. I think back to the late 60's and early 70's and that was the colors we were all using. Oh the memories.
Lisa and I sharing some treasures, it was so nice to meet her mom, I wish my mom could go to some of these sales with me, I can just hear the stories she might tell me, "I remember that old thing" and my dad would say "what on earth do you want that thing for?" Sometimes I feel like I feel the history of a piece that I might buy, it becomes a treasure to me.
After leaving the Vintage Gathering sale, I headed to Camas to the Downtown Garden Fair, there was lots of plants to be seen and great friends. I did not come home with any plants yet, just because of the weather and the higher elevation I live at, sometimes causes you to loose some of those great plants if you plant too early. Patience is the name of that game. Not easy for me however.
Loved this quilt, it says flower garden all the way, what a refreshing space this was.
Do you remember when the farm girls did this very same stone stamping, some how I think this person has it down really well.
Not only were there plants but anything that was garden related, as you can see by this photo. If you are looking for a place to go treasure hunting Queen of Tarte is having her monthly sale this Saturday the 22nd, check out her blog for more info. Next post Funky Junk Sisters Sale. What fun we farm girls had.

  6. I'm glad you made it to the shop! I hope we'll have more time to chat at farm chicks, but I know it will be crazy busy! If I look dazed and confused when you come by just slap me silly!:)

  7. Oh-La-La.....that quilt is a Dresden plate quilt. Looks really nice. Someday I want to make one of those.

    Those cement bricks are simple to make. We will do it this summer and you will soon be a pro!
