Friday's Faves...Monticello Antique Marketplace Fall Show

A couple of days ago I showed you the ironstone bargains I found at Monticello Antique Marketplace's fall show.
 I live smack dab in the middle of thrift store/antique store heaven!
Minutes from my home there are so many great and tempting places to shop.
Monticello is one of my favorites. 

 I wish I had bought this vintage tin. 
 My sister's name is Paulette and it's a perfect autumn color.
Maybe it's still there waiting for me to come back for it!

I snapped this photo for ideas of words to make with my Scrabble tiles.

I am always drawn to beautiful cabinets that would never fit in my small home.

But those shelves with the drawer underneath were small enough to fit in my house!
(I'd just have to get rid of something I already have!)

I love old pie safes with screened doors.

Lots of fun objects on these white shelves and farm table.

There were a lot of antlers and fur for sale to use in decor this season.

If you live anywhere near Portland, Oregon and love antiques I hope you'll pop in to Monticello.
(And you just might see me there!)

It's almost Friday, friends!
Have a 
and a
safe and BLESSED weekend!

  1. This place is heavenly, indeed! Thank you for sharing it, Elizabeth. I think you should go back and look for this perfect vintage tin "Paulette"... Thank you for your kind words on my blog! Wishing you a beautiful weekend!

  2. I'd love to nose around there for an hour or two! Thanks for sharing!


  3. Hi Elizabeth, I am so glad I stopped by to visit you today! I've been on a "no shopping/no spending" plan this month, and so your tour of the gorgeous shop near your home was a real treat for me. I love your style and the images you captured - such fun as though we went shopping together. I am wondering what camera you use to take pictures like these. I find that if I bring out my dSLR in shops it is much too conspicuous and often not welcome. Perhaps you use your smartphone camera? I don't have a camera phone, but I have just ordered a Fujifilm X30 to carry with me everywhere -hoping to take slice of life images just like these! Thanks for the inspiration this morning.

  4. Well at least I feel like I hung out with you. Sweet post with all the wood tones and cozy ideas. xo

  5. Oh my goodness, I saw several items in the photos I just love. Gonna have to check this place out.

  6. I love Monticello. Haven't been there for quite a while. Guess I'd better head that way soon. Would you believe I'm at the coast for a few days and I'm not going to any antique or thrift stores? My best friend from college days is visiting and she has no appreciation for them. Monticello would be a good reward for my bravery. Soon.
