Antique Finds

This week I was kidnapped by Kelsey. She forced me to go antiquing. Even though I told her I was tired. And that I had no money to spend on lovely antique finds. And that I didn't want to drive anywhere.
But she tricked me. And she drove. And I have never been so thankful.

I went into 3rd Street Antiques, which we frequent quite often, expecting to see all the same old stuff. The strawberry blanket [still there], the old pair of skis that I LOVE upstairs [still there] and the suit with cat appliques all over it [surprisingly NOT there]. My plan was to absolutely not fall in love with anything or buy even the cheapest thing.

ESPECIALLY with Kelsey. Because we have a love for all the same vintage-y things. Kitchen things, tablecloths and teacups.

I hadn't even made it 1/4 of the way through the shop when I saw the most beautiful tablecloth I had ever seen. This picture does it no justice. It has my favorite colors: mint and light pink. Along with red, which I love. And it has tulips. I have never seen a tulip tablecloth but I was definitely in love. I didn't even look at the price because I knew if I didn't buy it, Kelsey would. And I would FOREVER regret that.

I also ended up finding a very, very cute apron [the blue one] for only 7 dollars! And Kelsey found the super cute white apron on top.

I will take more pictures sometime of the whole tablecloth, but this at least shows a little bit of it. Thank you so so so much for kidnapping me Kelsey!


  1. Haha I bought the cat suit.

    Okay, not really.

    I really like the tablecloth! I love tulips!

  2. Love that place... I frequent it a lot as well! Very cute Tablecloth. Tulips are my absolute favorite flower.
