It only happens once or twice a year where you can hit both of these FabUlous places in one weekend and last weekend was it! The winds cooperated and while it was a bit cold for us spoiled California girls, my friend Cynthia and I were on a vintage holiday mission.
The Vintage Marketplace had this FabUlous photo op vignette set up as you walked through the garden arches to welcome you to vintage holiday wonderland. There were aluminum trees, feather trees, pink trees and even lampshade trees. And, of course, a ton of bling everywhere!
This is Sweet Magnolia’s Farm’s Booth
Close ups inside the doorway . . .
And this wreath is made of a ton of their FabUlous handmade, German glass glitter-edged roses – to die for!
Since it was quite cold, I decided to wear “Muffy” and while I was strolling the Marketplace, Muffy found her man! Take a look at this masterpiece created by Denise Chafin of White Horse Relics. He’s part Viking, part knight and totally FabUlous! Denise and her partner, Ashley Adams, are regular vendors and create a one-0f-kind mannequin for each Marketplace. And they are all over the top FabUlous. I think I have a matching jacket at home! LOL
Next stop, Matilda’s Mouse Antiques. They are a bit farther south and a tad inland from the Vintage Marketplace but totally worth the trip. Matilda is a Wire Hair Fox Terrier and is the mascot for the shop. Is she just not the cutest thing ever! Her mom got a much better picture than I did, so I borrowed this one from their blog.
I know quite a few ladies who would die for this FabUlous carriage – OMG!
Happy Vintage Holidays!
