ok. as a kid i always remember my mom dragging me to flea markets.
it was kinda cool to go because my thoughts were always.."what will she buy me?"
now as an adult i find myself drawn to them and other places to find "treasures".

i am most def obsessed with yard sales, estate sales, flea markets, consignment, thrifting
and anything vintagely awesome and retro.
i have yet to pick a era that i just love.
i am drawn to the 50s, 60s and 70s.
while at the same time the 80s being when i was born always brings back cool memories.

soo for this blog i wanted to let you in on three things i stumbled upon recently.
first being flea market style the magazine.
my wonderful husband searched high and low for the best magazine for my easter basket.
flea market style is what he stumbled upon.
they also have a blog you should def check out.
the magazine has all sorts of cool re purposing that you can easily do and also some
cool crafty ideas.
if you happen to find a copy of it snatch it up!

the next thing i found recently is a second hand store called...common thread.
it's a cute little shop on butler street in lawerenceville.
which is just down from where we live.

the last place i found was one of the coolest i have ever seen.
a store called who new?
the mister and i went and explored in there yesterday and we were hooked.
i told him he could get all my birthday gifts from there. ha

i plan on hitting some flea markets soon and also keeping up with all other sales of vintage
things around us in pittsburgh.
i would have to say one of my favorite things about pittsburgh is we are
always finding new and fun things to do and see.

have a great week ya'll!
