Let's Go Shopping

I really should have been working on other things and concentrating on my "to do" list on Friday instead of playing at Room With a Past in Walnut Creek. This awesome store is only open four days a month, so I had to seize the opportunity when opportunity knocked. It was my first visit to this location, and I have to say I like it even better than their sister store, Paris Flea Market in Livermore.

Love the polka dot seat on this pretty pink bike.  Too bad it wasn't parked in the right direction because the finger took me on a little detour down the street.

The entire store was packed full of vintage treasures with just the right amount
of holiday decor mixed in.

This gorgeous swag is made from book pages with sewing pattern flowers added to each end.

I knew it was time to settle in and get comfortable once I discovered these tasty treats; I can't shop on an empty stomach.  Does being on a sugar high make you spend more money?

Burlap and silver.....always a good combination.

Piles of vintage ornaments all ready to be wheeled out.

Aren't those lampshades adorable?

This 4' tall shelf with two curved drawers on the bottom spoke to me.
  It spoke very loud.

I've been looking for something narrow enough to fit in a small space in my studio.  This was perfect because it's only 11" deep.  Can't wait to get it all loaded up with goodies.

How many of us had this same house?  It sure brings back good memories. 

Now you know where to buy your angel wings.

I almost bought the large framed French map above the mantel.  Glad I passed on it because it would have been too big for the space I had in mind.

I wish I had room for this.
I wish I had room for everything.
I'm proud of myself for having so much self-control.
