Time for a Field Trip!


Two of my favorite places to shop for vintage furniture, antiques and repurposed pieces are holding their monthly sales this weekend. So, I'm heading out bright and early Friday morning to see what I can find.

My first stop will be in Buckeystown, Maryland to see Virginia of Chartreuse and Company and the other dealers she has in her fabulous barn and three outbuildings. The first time I walked through the green door and into her barn (in photo) I was just in awe because the space is fabulous! I also had the chance to hang out with Virginia, the owner, and Robin, one of her dealers at my favorite weekly auction last week on Maryland's eastern shore. So I can't wait to see what they have in store for their customers this month.

On Saturday morning, I'll be getting up even earlier than Friday morning to drive about an hour south to The Vintage Source, which also happens to be LuLu's favorite place to shop. Michelle, Joy, Cathy and Sheryl offer furniture, mirrors, slip covered chairs, funky pieces, etc., for the home. They're also having a flea market this weekend so it should be a great day of shopping!
