Weekend Finds!!!

My mom & I headed to Stanwood bright & early to Retreat Vintage Market on Saturday to browse through the participating vendors booths and visit the local shops…..I would definitely say it was a fabulous day & excited to share with you my weekend finds!  First off – I had to share with you my new potting bench…hand made by Ormolulu (borrowed this photo below from ‘Ormolulu’ website)– amazing booth filled with all sorts of fabulous items (go to her site to see more!) but this ‘baby’ is what I brought home!  Can’t wait to finish my side yard and get it set up and put into use!

Next I found this fabulous broom to not only display on my patio, but to actually use (yes, I plan to really use it).  I purchased this from the Barn House & was so excited to finally meet two of the sweetest guys on this earth… Joe & Jermonne.  I’ve always wanted to go to one of their barn sales, but haven’t ventured their way – so it was great to see them at the show.  They do have an online shop with ton’s of goodies – you absolutely should check out their store if you don’t live close by!

Picked up this little berry basket from Poppyseeds who has a shop on the island but also participated in Retreat Vintage Market. So many cheerful colors & fabulous items to choose from! This will be perfect for my patio makeover!

The two blue larger jars below ~ I purchased at the Retreat Vintage Market from Carly Tee Photography and Design and the two smaller ones were found at a garage sale going on when visiting the island. They will be perfect for my patio makeover as well!

These sweet bowls were found at the Spare Room on Camano Island & plan to use them while entertaining on the patio!

This sweet table I found at a little shop on the island. I believe it was called the “Beach Bungalow” will find a perfect place between my two lounge chairs on our patio.  006

Was so excited to find these darling vintage tennis rackets at a barn sale on the island.  My kiddo’s have been wanting some and I couldn’t pass up the $2.00 bargain to add to our toy bin!

ANNIE said...

Wow, Tracie, what great finds! They're all wonderful but I especially love that potting bench with its picket roof... how clever!

Jane@Cottage at the Crossroads said...

Tracie,
What a fabulous potting bench! I saw a great idea on a blog for the blue Ball jars. Someone took apart some solar lights (with round tops) and put them on top of the jars! Would give some nice ambiance on a patio!
