Vintage finds from Elkhorn

A beautiful June morning to you!
I wrote about going to a flea market on my recent trip.
My SIL and I now have a little outing just the two of us look forward to each Spring visit.

This was opening day @ Elkhorn & I must say it was a beautiful day!
Before I show you what I did find...
Here are a few sightings, that I didn't bring home....

This was a gorgeous cast iron fire place front. I have a smaller one in my garden house.

Honestly....I am having remorse about not getting this amazing leather chair...

Darling chippy olde hutch....

I really wanted this door!

This would of been a cool piece in my glass front refrigerator, but I'm not doing pink!

A wonderful highlight was visitng sweet Jeanine who is "CHIPPY SHABBY".

She had so many cool things...but this

little vintage metal flower vase with a glass vile had to come home to SoCal with me!
I first met her at NADA farm sale so it was fun to see her this Spring!

So here is what vintage finds I found onmy trip  &  DID bring home....

Vintage turn of the century oil lamp converted to electric.

Vintage ceiling mount lighting.

Lucky to find two! Might go in a hall or butler's pantry!!!

Super olde marmalade jar from Great Britian... LOVE LOVE LOVE!

a single vintage white rufflely plate....

a petite white vintage ironstone oval platter...

YES mam...Cool olde coveralls... washed them 3 times, 
already wore them to a farm to table dinner we went to with friends at a little organic farm!!!
& omg love them!!!

& the softest yummiest olde flannel men's work shirt, I'm ready for Autumn!!!

I LOVE all my vintge finds...

I went to a few other places...

Tommy Guns Antique mall in Delavan, WI where I found these vintage crystal prisms.
I found a gorgeous horse weather vane there too for My SIL. She bought it for her Coach house! 

A beautiful olde black frame, I found with my causin at A VINTAGE VAULT in Kenosha, WI.

The detail linen second frame inside is gorgeous, 
A special litle frame!

I had do much fun...
 I LOVE all my vintage finds, everything weathered the flight & came home in tact!

Saturday June 7th, here for my series for SSO DESIGNING with VINTAGE,
 I will show you some ideas with the vintage pieces I found!
 So I hope you will join me.

Later this week I will share some really cool shops in Chicago that we visited!
