amazing VINTAGE SHOPPING this weekend!!

If you live in the area...clear your calendar, girls!

There are 3 good places to shop for vintage goodies this weekend!

Susan from Maple & Magnolia is having her 'Cottage Sale' on Saturday...this is a don't miss event. She has cleaned and purged every room in her home, guest house and garage. Email her at for an invite & directions. Her blog has lots of preview photos, too! 

{And yes, she is selling this dining table, those awesome metal chairs and loads of ironstone!}

Tattered Tiques in Lake Barrington, IL is open this weekend, too!! (their shop and Susan's house are only about 2 minutes from each other so you can hit BOTH!) Sooooo much good stuff here, let me tell you first hand. Industrial goodies, farmhouse wares and painted furniture, too!

The shop is open today, Friday and Saturday from 10-3.

They carry Annie Sloan Chalk Paint


the newly released Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint!!
{used on the chest below...such a cool, chippy look!}

Also, the Nada Farm Sale is this weekend in Esmond, IL!
