It's been a week since my vintagey trip to Missouri has come to end. But I left the very best for last! Antique Malls!!! My two new favorite words!
I was craving to go to one for the longest time. The last and only I had been to one was last year on my first trip to Missouri. So on the last day of my trip we went to not one but TWO Antique Malls! Just thinking about them makes me giddy!
One of the malls we went to was celebrating their 20th Anniversary vintage style by dressing up as 1920's flappers! They even decorated the entrance to the mall and had amazing goodies that were first produced in the 1920's (minus the cupcakes hehe)
I was just dazzled by all the outstanding booths they had! If I had Antique Malls like this close to me I would go at least twice a month-not kidding! Here is a glimpse of some neat things I saw while there:
I just LOVED those cookie jars! I wish I could have taken one home-next time hehe They just has so much vintage eye candy! Okay so, you may have wondered what dazzling treasures did I come home with. Let me start by saying the most I paid for something was $15. One of the things was a vintage Blue's Clues lunch box in superb condition that I purchased for my baby's 3rd birthday (my youngest) this November (his bday theme will be Blue's Clues). Other than that and two purses below, most things were basically for $10 and less. The small box you see below was just $2.00! I saw it on Etsy for over $12! I scored some more Moon Glow bracelets (last trip I scored three) for $6.00 each!
I found the most beautiful earrings and necklaces each for about $8.00 and down. I would show you closer photos but I will share them when I wear them next *smile* I couldn't resist the peach gloves and matching scarf! I need a dress to wear it with now hehe
The hat above is the only hat I purchased on my trip. Isn't it stunning! I usually don't gravitate to brown but its just so pretty I couldn't say no! And all of the purses-yum! I really wanted staple pieces in my vintage wardrobe so I can match it with many outfits. Now I have a few standard purses in my collection and just need to add a brown and red one!
I cannot resist paper goods! So I purchased some magazines for a few dollars a piece as well as some vintage ads to add to my home decor as I begin the repainting and redecorating. Brittany also gifted me a few outstanding vintage dresses to take home with me! Look at those pretties! My wardrobe is growing! I will share closer photos of them once I have worn them out. But three are 1940's, one is 1950's and one is 1960's. Love them!!!
Oh my! That is all I believe hehe Four days of pure vintagey fun with the most incredible friend ever! I also of course scored gifts for my husband and kids as well. Can I just say-this was the best trip ever!!!!
What do you like most from my stash? Have you been to an Antique Mall before?
