So, I heard about this shop hop (kind of like a bar crawl for shopaholics) event in Falls Church this weekend and decided to check it out with friend and fellow blogger Tara @ Strawberry Jam House.
I was surprised - I was expecting all the stores to be crazy-packed like Lucketts was during the Holiday open house. We didn't come home with bags and bags of treasures (but hey sometimes that's a good thing...I am worried about turning into a hoarder at some point).
I didn't take too many photos in the stores - if you follow me on Instagram you may have seen a few I posted:
Here are a few more photos from the stores we visited - some of the places we made it to were:
Stylish Patina, Rough Luxe, Brits on Broad, and Falls Church Antiques Annex.
I almost bought one of those scarves, I loved the colors. Here's what came home with me:
I needed a 16x20 frame for another painting I scored online and this vintage one fit the bill. I've got to work some magic on it before it's ready to hang...and then actually find a place to hang it... :/
Oh and if you like the 'painting' it's available in the Etsy shop -->Vintage Floral Faux Painting
I nearly leaped over a stack of antiques to get to this thing. Amazing, right? It's an antique cast iron revolving cobbler's nail holder-thing. I couldn't wait to fill it up :)
I'm obsessed with mercury glass anything (real or faux) and loved the shape of this candle holder.
First, I tried the candle holder as a vase on top of a pile of cooking books...
Then, I tried it on my kitchen table - I think this is where it will stay for a while...
Here's the cobbler tray filled with beautiful beads...this makes me happy...
I think I mentioned that I've become obsessed with this gelato - the packaging is so cute that I saved it to store beads :)
Happy Treasure Hunting!
