fieldstone vintage market…

I can’t think of a better way to spend a Saturday morning! Woke up early, grabbed my daughter, hopped in the Volvo, picked up my girlfriend and her daughter, and pointed the GPS toward Abbotsford, BC for the Fieldstone Vintage Market. Yeeeeehaaaaw. (Did I mention the coffee and fresh-baked cinnamon buns we picked up on the way?)

We were blown away by the bucolic setting at Bakerview Eco Dairy, which is the first demonstration dairy of its kind in Canada. The weather was idyllic–a sunny, warm September day! There were lots of happy shoppers wandering through the field of vendors. We were like kids in a candy store skipping from booth to booth and finding lots of very reasonably-priced goodies. (Well…okay…we didn’t skip…and the girls weren’t quite as embarrassingly “into it” as Kim and I were).

I’m still kicking myself for not coming home with one of these gorgeous handmade pillows for only $18!!!!!

My friends know that when it comes to shopping with me, it’s every woman for herself. That’s why Kim wasn’t surprised when I snatched up this chair the very second she said she’d “think about it”. Ya snooze, ya lose!!!! It was only $32!!!

I walked away with this awesome red-framed vintage advertisement for pancakes. It’s now hanging in my kitchen, and I crave pancakes all the time!

Kudos to the organizers of this amazing event, Rachel & Lily, over at Birch & Bird blog. I’m really hoping they’re planning their next sale. I could blissfully spend every weekend doing this 🙂
