It is no secret that I love secondhand, thrift and vintage finds. So when I heard about the Vintage Shop Hop, I was all over it.
Northeastern IL and Southeastern WI
Sign. Me. Up.
While I did not get to caravan all over IL and WI for two days, I did get to spend the entire day with my Mom driving around the Northern suburbs. From 9 AM – 3 PM, we hit approximately 16 different shops (with a quick lunch break).
I was on the lookout for a number of things:
- A plant stand for our future herb garden
- A catch-all for K’s dresser
- Cake stands for the wedding
- Vintage house/address numbers for table numbers for the wedding
- A TV stand
- Napkins and handkerchiefs
While it was a super amazing day of getting to look at so many different vendors, we did not load up the car like we had hoped.
That is okay because I want my finds to be perfect, not just so-so.
As we finished the winding hallways of an antique mall, I found the perfect plant stand.
I took one look at the chrome and white enamel kitchen cart and said, “This is the one!”
It is a beauty and I cannot wait to show you what I end up doing with it. Stay tuned!
