Scott and I are big fan of antiquing and searching for treasures. So when Scott told me about an email he received inviting us to a party at a local antique store, we knew exactly how we were going to be spending our Friday night.
Going to a party at an antique store sounds a bit geeky I think, but geeky in the best way! There was cake, party punch, and a raffle to win a gift certificate to the antique store!
Scott and I spent an hour and a half or so wondering around the antique store, eating cake, sipping the yummiest punch, and checking out every little booth. When I go antiquing I always keep my eye out for the same things: old cameras, pyrex dishes, a plaid set of dishes that my great grandmother had, pretty clothes, and old jewelry.
Scott's list is sort of the same (except for the girly things), but he also keeps an eye out for furniture, and odds and ends that could be used to make something new.
These glass heads were so neat! Definitely one of my favorite things that I spotted that night.
I really adore this lace vest I wore to the party. Scott picked it out for me over the summer while I was away. He really has such good taste! I can't wait to style it up again!
We really had a great time exploring all the little nooks and crannies in the antique store for the evening, and although we didn't walk away with anything that evening, we still had a great time checking out all of the treasures in the store.
Did I mention that Scott really likes vintage, metal staplers? Well, he does, and when we found this little stash of them hidden on a shelf, Scott sure was thrilled.
The day after the party Scott got a phone call saying that he had won a $25 gift card to the store, and could come pick it up whenever he had time. We were so excited for him and could only wait until the next day to come and pick out a few treasures to take home!
