My kids are away at my parents for a fun filled (candy filled) weekend, so I took the opportunity to do some junk shopping...and napping. Oh man...I LOVE sleeping. There was a great garage sale/antiques sale at a barn on Highway 14. I got an entire box of pots and pans for the mud kitchen for only $2.00 (Click here for the mud kitchen post) and a mirror that will eventually make its way into our basement bathroom. I also picked up some fun little finds at some local antique places including one little yellow Pyrex dish.
But the best find of the day was a new shop in Brookings called "Farmhouse Fancy" (Click here for their Facebook). It's refinished furniture with a rustic touch. Lots of great finds. I'm currently looking around my house to find what could be replaced with her furniture. I love to refinish furniture myself, but sometimes (especially if it involves fabric) I'd rather just buy a piece from someone else. They do all the hard work and put all the love and care into the piece, and I just get to enjoy it...and usually think of something I haven't thought of. Here's some of the pieces available today, but inventory is always changing so you should just keeping going in...make it's part of your routine shopping. :)
These candle sticks made their way home with me. Cream on the bottom with aqua candles. Love them! I want to have a special dinner to just pull them out. Until then they are going to stay with my Pyrex hutch. (Check out that post here)
There's also so many great fun blankets as well. I am going to add those to my list of must have baby gifts.
As always, support your local small business owners! Think about the difference you're making to a local family by shopping local!
