A Trip To Vintage Market

If you have been following along, you will know that I am taking Sadie Mae, Toto and Rufus on a little shopping spree with me and the stop after American Country was to a beautiful shop called Vintage Market, also located in Turlock, California. I have posted about this shop before – just click here to take you there.


The experience of shopping Vintage Market is just wonderful – from the distressed wood floors, high industrial style ceiling to the used brick walls – the ambiance is magical, lovely-to-the-bones-magical. Your eyes will not know where to fall as there is so much inventory to browse through. There are new items mixed in with eclectic metal pieces, antique market baskets, lighting fixtures, furniture, handmade jewelry and paintings, linens, dishes, garden accessories – just to name a little bit of their offerings.


I know several of the lovely women who sell at Vintage Market. Just inside the front door is Doris’ section. Doris is very talented and makes pillows, bags and aprons to sell along with her vintage finds. She also has a blog called Dogwood Designs where she shares about her handmade creations – and man, can she sew!




Below is my friend Andrea (aka Andi) who has a gorgeous space called J. Blackbird. She and her mother, Jenny, have a keen eye for all things French and pretty! Their space is filled with Euro grain sacks, linens, religious figurines, ruffled bags, handmade pillows and gorgeous handmade jewelry. Miss Sadie Mae got to spend a few moments with Andi, too…..


….as well as hangout with the lovely ruffled linen handbags! It was a girly moment!!



Ok, who isn’t loving all of these vintage hankies? More goodies of Andi’s!




Another dealer has these fabulous green metal gym lockers for sale and they came from Santa Cruz, California. LOVE the old patina!

Ok, there are more travels of Sadie Mae, Toto and Rufus to come! The dogs had a lot of fun at out next stop to see our friend, Miss Lisa!

Tootles for now!

What I love about these sorts of shops is the connection between them so one doesn't really know if you're in Indiana, California or Kansas. Love it all! My eye went right to the Scotties things, though...the pillow and the doorstops.

Love your blog. Couldn't help notice the pic on the side of your soldier. My daughter just lost her soldier boy over in Afghanistan on the 3rd of Sept. They were to be married last Sunday. Oh the price families are paying for this war. So sorry for your heart ache...
