Gettin' the Goods



Yesterday was such a good day for my vintage soul! I got out poking around a little after being home bound for awhile. I didn't have to go far, because I stopped into my own shop first and found a new merchant, Vestige Goods, had been installed while I was gone. She's got great stuff!




But there's always great stuff at Vintage Market & Design! (Makes it a little tricky to operate out of there.)



Vestige Goods had these fabulous olive buckets. I haven't seen them in Albuquerque before, and thought I'd have to go to Texas or California for one. We're crazy for it!




I found this coffee pot a little while back at another market. I"m sure loving the rustic stuff lately!





Edward of Vintage Market & Design produces these gorgeous cards. I can't help but buy a few every time I come in.




 I got these for graduation and birthdays. I love their classic vintage vibe and that they're not too frou frou. It can be pretty limiting finding cards for men. Ya know what I mean?




There are also these delicious flavors of soap in the shop.




Edward designed the packaging. Each one different, but all of the elements he uses just speak to me and say, buy, buy, buy! Haha. (So I do.) Aren't they beautiful? They smell so heavenly!














I found the humongous antique basket at one of my haunts yesterday too. Thrilled beyond words. There's no faking that patina!




Now I have to tell you that I have a thing for vintage wicker planters too, and once in a while I find them with their original finish. I've let too many of them go, so I'm going to try to hang onto this one for awhile. It just speaks everything I'm always saying to myself these days!












Vestige Goods also carries Nina Hartmann and Jeanne d'Arc Magazine!!!! I had waffled on buying Vintage by Nina until seeing it in person. Ghaaaaah! Love it!


















It's going to be very hard to top that for awhile! I wish I could get to some of the great markets that are happening all over the country/world this weekend, but this is going to have to do it for me!
 Ya'll have fun!

These are some really great treasures, Jacqueline! I love the vintage postcards; I visited the Vintage Market & Design site, but unfortunately, I couldn't understand if they can be bought onlinel... Thank you for the inspiring photos!

Hi J,
Well you are loaded down with new pretties today! I do think (for me) it would be very scary to work in a vintage shop, over stimulation, haha, and I would go broke! I looked at the shops website, VERY NICE! You are a perfect fit!
Hugs,
Bella

I just love that coffee pot. It makes me think about a vinyl tablecloth, eggs and biscuits, etc...an old-fashioned kitchen and breakfast : )

Your shopping time was good for my vintage soul as well. Thanks for sharing!

You found a lot of neat stuff, love the coffee pot. The vintage wicker seems to be in good shape and will provide storage no doubt for some of your linens.

I love the olive buckets. I really learned about them on blogs..never knew what they were. So see..blogs are educational. Yes, our vintage hearts must find some old treasures sometimes. It does us good :)

Oh, what fun it would be to shop with you. Great finds, Jacqueline. I haven't had the time for being out and about in the vintage world, though I did pop into a GW that is next to my grocery store. Kicking myself for leaving behind a great find. Went back, but of course it was long gone. Gotta grab it when you see it! '-)

I have never even seen a vintage olive bucket! Wouldn't have known what it was! And as much as I love wicker and baskets, I have never seen a wicker planter. Your finds are beautiful. I have never heard of the Vintage by Nina book either. You have really enlightened me with this lovely post! Am going to an estate sale tomorrow--oh I guess it's already today (2:20 am). Maybe I will find something unusual and lovely too. Kay

I always find so many things to comment on when I read your blog.

1. I must get myself an olive bucket
2. I must find that book.
3. I must find some beautiful white linens.
4. I must go to Albuquerque, stalk you at your shop and make you take me out on one of your hunts. You find amazing stuff.

What lovely finds, Jacqueline, each one prettier than the last. Those cards and soaps are wonderful. I can NEVER pass up beautiful cards. And the scents of those soaps sound heavenly. Edward is certainly a creative soul... I love those wrappings! And I find soaps like that are very good for gardeners' hands. Hoping you enjoy all your beautiful treasures!
