Fun at the Junk Salvation Vintage Market

Once a year the Junk Salvation Vintage Market comes to Hillsboro Oregon and Janae and I always count the days---we have so much fun!

So I snapped a bunch of pictures so I could share all the pretties with my blogger friends. I thought this year was the best show ever!

We always get the early entry tickets and good thing we did because Janae bought several things in the first 15 minutes which I think would have been gone if we wouldn't have been one of the early birds!

There was a booth there with this lady that made the cutest aprons and purses--I just loved it and Janae and I each got a cute purse.

I feel like all the creative energy was rubbing off on me and wanting me to come home and create something!

I am just loving the wall paper on furniture look--and I saw it on several pieces.

There were so many girlie, ruffled, frilly things-- Janae and I were in heaven!

Denise from Pink Postcard had such a cute booth. She had old photos laying thru her booth--I love how she put everything together.

She had this spring with clear vials in it holding roses...I had to get it. Such a cute idea!

I love this little decorative room divider thing--the paint job on it was awesome. Janae got it!

Janae and I would have been perfectly happy to take everything home!

Janae got the above white mirror too.

I have the chair shown here in my garage...this paint job really inspired me.

I need to get that chair out of the garage!

There are so many talented people at these shows!

So did you see anything you would have wanted?

My problem is I didn't see anything I didn't want!

Thank goodness for my little PT Cruiser--it can hold a lot of awkward sized things :)

Can't wait until next year!

Thanks for visiting!

It's so nice that you & Janae can share your love for decorating together & do special things like this :)
You should've had your pictures taken together though ! I'm glad you both found some pretties :)

You and Janae really made out! I can't wait to see all of your beautiful pieces in both of your homes.

Okay, I know what I am doing this time next year. I think its only about an hour drive from my place.
So worth it. Maybe I can get a friend of mine to go with me. Make it a girls day out. Thanks for posting this. I didn't know anything about it.
I fell in love with the mirror, then I read down below that Janae got it lol. Great taste!!!!!

I'm new to following your blog! Love the vintage markets - I saw so many things I would've loved to take home with me :-) I'm in Aussie and I haven't seen anything like that 'round my neck of the woods! What a shame!

Athena at Minervas Garden said...

Gorgeous pictures and items at this market! I was both sick and busy at the time of this, but hope to go next year.

I am with you on ...didn't see anything you didn't want! There is a great deal of eye-candy and I dream of what I can do with some of my old stuff. Thank you for the great photos. :)

Something Special said...

Well I am completely and utterly jealous. I wish we had something like this close by where I live. I would live and plan and save to be able to go to that once a year. thanks for your visit to my blog.

Melanie said...

Yes, go get that chair out of the garage! Love it! Enjoyed the pictures very much. So much to look at and dream about there! It must have been so fun to browse through and look! I would have wanted everything that I saw there too!

Lin from A {tiny} Cottage In The Woods said...

I'd need a really, really BIG truck. :)
Thanks for sharing it all with us!!!

Hi Sandy,
I love everything at that flea market. I can't wait to see Janae's purchases in her shabby home. I think I know where that mirror is going. (With her many others?) How fun to go out treasure hunting with your dear daughter. I hope that my daughter eventually loves shabby chic too! Thank you for visiting me and yes the new Romantic Homes magazine came in the mail last week ~ not sure if it is in stores yet! Have a wonderful weekend! Take care,

Cindy said...

YES! I saw like a hundred things i wanted there. Ya'll must have had a blast there!
