Thrifting for the Garden at the Outdoor Antique Mall

Do you love shopping at the thrift store for vintage finds? Wait until you see what I found thrifting at the outdoor antique mall for the garden.

Labor Day Weekend was a HUGE day at the outdoor antique mall and flea market in Wilmington, VT.

There were so many great vendors and we found lots of cool stuff!

Some things came home with me.

And others I had to leave behind.

Wait until you see what I found thrifting this month!

Have you been following along with my thrifting journeys each month?

Last month, I found the coolest yellow chairs that you all thought I needed to go back and get.

And I couldn’t agree with your more!

This month, I found some AWESOME items that I brought home and some other cool things I wish I bought.

What I Found Thrifting for the Garden at the Antique Mall

For starters, how cool are those baskets?

I’ve seen them a few times at the vintage market but they are a little pricier than I wanted to spend.

And since they were at one of the first booths at the antique mall, I kept shopping to see if I found anything I wanted more.

There were several vendors with tables and tables of vintage dishes and other serving ware.

I thought about picking a few up to use in some tablescapes.

They’d also make great additions to window boxes.

Wouldn’t that be so fun?

But wound up not buying any on this trip.

Looking back, I should have bought this sign!!

Why why WHY did I leave without it???

It’s so cool!

These vintage quilts stopped me in my tracks!

I wanted the red one to use for the holidays, but it cost a little more than I wanted to spend.

So pretty though!

Ok how cute is this truck?

I love all the chippy details.

It was a little expensive so I didn’t get it.

But I thought it would look so adorable on my bay window shelf with some plants tucked in around it.

But then we hit the bomb diggity vendor at the antique mall!

It was so hard to choose just a few things.

Gah!

The things I could do with these vintage pieces and plants!

You guys know how much I love using toolboxes as centerpieces for my dining table.

I love this chippy gray one, don’t you?

But then I found this, and had to have it!

It would look AMAZING potted up with some fall mums, wouldn’t it?

And then planted with some pretty faux winter greens for the holidays?

Um yes…I snagged this one.

And as we were leaving, I saw this gorgeous urn and thought it would look so pretty with cut flowers from my garden.

Aren’t the details so pretty?

It is so beautiful, in fact, I was stopped a few times as I approached the exit because random strangers wanted to buy it from me!

So you know it was a good find then.

Not to mention, we got a great deal on it.

Thrifting for Vintage With Friends

One of the best parts about blogging is meeting friends from around the globe.

It is super cool to see how different things are in different areas of the country.

And I’ve come to learn that thrifting and shopping for vintage decor can be easy or a challenge depending on your location.

This would be perfect for the Vermont cabin garden I’ve been slowly working on.

Wait Until You See What Some Friends Found This Month Too!

My good friend Kim from Shiplap and Shells found some super cool architectural salvage treasures while she was on her boating trip around the Pacific Northwest.

If you’ve not seen her garden and how she blends these treasures in with her blooms, you’ve got to check it out!
