My First 2 Markets !! So MUch Fun

I owe it all to my Favourite Lucy store in North Vancouver Canada for my inspiration . Well its not the really called that ,but this store has such beautiful vintage furniture & items . THEN I met an amazing Talented wood artist Kristy's , and her husband George from 4 love of wood who  inspired me further . I followed their blog and I was so amazed with all Kristy's creations. PLease check out  her blog at http://4theloveofwood.blogspot.ca , she is truly amazing & talented . George has an online store that sells unique vintage door pulls and vintage finds . WE spent a wonderful day together last September  painting and learning about this wonderful world of painting .

I enquired about an Vintage market THE OLDE FARMHOUSE Vintage Market in Maple Ridge with Leah & Barb . These ladies are the Kindest & most Supportive people you could meet . And yes I was accepted .PLease check out there website at http://www.theoldefarmhouse.ca/vintage-market . I can't wait for the next vintage  market - Hopefully Christmas ( fingers crossed ) . I will update  my blog with all info about this amazing vintage Market.    


I then met my partner in crime Claudine from Condensed Love Home . She did not know what she was getting herself into by agreeing to go thifting with me one day  . PLease check out her blog at http://condensedlovehome.blogspot.ca. She is a talented picker ( she finds the most unique pieces ) ,Wood repurposer ,  home designer and she bakes & bakes and did I say bakes  .Her baking is amazing. 

Well this is what WE have done for the past  2 weekends and what a wonderful world I have just entered into !!
