weekend finds

We were able to go away for the weekend with some friends, and had a great time relaxing in beautiful Central Oregon!

I managed to hit a couple estate sales before we left on Friday, and then we (the girls) snuck out for a couple hours on Sunday to hit some antique shops.

My first item was this vintage camera:


Then I found a treasure trove of Christmas ornaments!


I'm already squirreling away fall and Christmas items.
These were a major steal- super high quality too.
I love the aged metal tops!

We went to some awesome vintage and antique stores in downtown Redmond, Oregon.
I can't wait to go back. Incredible prices, and lots of good stuff!

I bought a little terrarium:


Can't wait to play around with some seasonal changes for this guy.
For now, it's housing some vintage books.
It was in a shop called Cottage ??? something!! I wish I could remember their name because they are new owners, and they had lots of cute, very well priced items.  The terrarium was only $15.

We also went to a really cute shop called Gypsy Flea Mercantile.  While we were shopping,
I just missed out on some vintage trophies!! Darn!

But, I did find these vintage travel liquor bottles.
Love the labels!
I actually purchased four, but one - the Scotch bottle- accidentally got left behind during the wrapping process.  I called the shop owner and she was very sweet, and is sending me the other one.


I have some other photos on my Instagram of some of the cuteness we saw in the area.  Lots of great shops and places to eat.   I will definitely go back to this area next time.

Today I found a few more treasures- some which will be heading to Etsy, and some to my space at Aunt Bee's House:


My love of oval frames.  I plan to put something cut in it, I promise!  ;)
The trophy is metal and a nice size.
(sorry it's so blurry, my lens is doing some wonky stuff recently....)


Vintage children's books:


And my favorite find today- a set of three glass decanters and a mini vintage bottle.
These will be staying local- stuff like this is hard to ship with out it getting damaged.



Fun fun fun!

Mark your calendars for a couple important upcoming events-


Sunday, August 19 is the last parking lot sale of the year for Aunt Bee's House.

September 14 & 15 is the Deepwood Vintage Market.

Both are chock full of awesome vendors and great finds.

I am so looking forward to nesting before school starts back up in a month!
Organizing, relaxing, and getting projects done!

Any great finds for you over the weekend?
