A little shopping around Raleigh NC!

I had a little....ok, A LOT of fun this Thanksgiving weekend shopping in Raleigh NC.   Instead of fighting the regular retail crowds, I decided to take some me time and check out a few of the vintage and antique shops in Raleigh.  I ended up finding some really fun things and I will for sure come back to revisit these shops!

The first place I stopped to check out was "The Vintage Village". Which consisted of a cluster of quaint little stores. All of the vendors we so sweet!

It's feeling a lot like Christmas!

I purchased a few items from SuzAnna's Antiques. A great shop with numerous vendors.

SuzAnna's Antique Shop front, Bright and happy like the shop owner!

I picked up these adorable Scottie bookends.
Shop owners! Smiling faces! Susie and Jenny and cutie smiling helper.
I had to have this old statue.  She has a Sacred Heart on her chest.

Ok...we already have an Elvis Bust but this one is a lamp.  VERY TEMPTING!

Great selection of doors.

The next shop was called "VIGNETTE"
Adorable Shop owner & Artist GAIL FORREST.  
She made these fantastic artistic candlesticks.  I just loved them.

I'm embarrassed to say my ADD set in and I forgot the name of these unique angels that she made.  When it comes to me....I'll re-post.  I need to call her and ask her again!

Next is the sweetest lady I've met in awhile!  Her name too was Gloria.  I loved her adorable shoppe and her!
She has the most sparkling personality ever!  You need to stop by and visit all these shops but be sure to stop by and catch a bit her her happy fever!  It is contagious!
I picked up some great finds from her.
Gloria Despres--Owner of A WISE CHOICE ANTIQUES

Found some awesome Milk glass goblets in her shop.  

I still want a pair of these chairs!  Walked away without them but.....still thinking!
Saturday I made it to the Raleigh Fair Grounds and Flea Market. It was a gorgeous day.  So much fun!

This is John Lane from Vintage Studios.com  He makes these amazing iron/Architectural  & Industrial tables & lamps.

I picked up this one.  Cant decide....Marble top?, or Concrete?  Wood?  So many possibilities!

Well after all that ingested food....I walked some of it off this T-day weekend!  If you are around Raleigh, NC.....Stop by some of these places!  You will surly find some goodies!  :)

We are back from High Point market in North Carolina!

We had such a great show that we can't wait to get back to High Point in April!  The contacts we have met and friendships made are invaluable! Who would of thought that 10 hours on our feet for 8 days would have gone so quickly! (Our husbands at home would disagree....but .....Oh well!)  :) They hopefully know how much they are appreciated!

A very special THANK YOU to  KAREN, AMANDA & CHANDRA for inviting us to participate in this antique show.

We want to share some of our highlights with you!

The talent we came across was overwhelming!  Below are some amazing lamps that Matt from http://www.chalahcdesigns.com
made with his own two hands!  If we could only own one of each!

Sorry I didn't get around to get this one for myself!

Then there is JOEL.Yup, Joel Sarvis......  You want to talk about talent?  This guy has it all!  Love him!  
He paints, sculpts & creates just about everything!
We will definitely keep in touch with him .

Then there is Tracy and Russell!  Harts creek furniture.
hartscreekllc.comTracy has the most amazing eye and builds furniture.  Indoor and outdoor, sleek & rustic.  I can't wait to get my out door table and bed I ordered for my son!

Oktoberfest Happy hour.....

Russell .....Funny, funny, funny guy.

Steph and I with Russell

Just having a little fun.....

This group is a for sure must for all future shows!  Love them!

Some amazing Hides.


 Carol Pollard and her Husband Ernie Pollard.  We can't wait. to visit them at their shop in Greensboro, NC.  The had a hopping booth! Below is a colorful unique stuffed horse that had a lot of interest.

I got to meet one of my favorite designers! Genivieve Gorder from HGTV.  She came into our booth and I told her I loved her.  Yes....I did.  I can't even say I'm embarrassed! I just did.  and....got a pic!  She is super sweet and was promoting her new carpet line.
Back to our handsome cowboy Russell.  Hat and all.....
Fanshawe and Blaine has unique vintage finds and two of the nicest owners we have ever met! Tori & Amanda, We can't wait to see them in Purseville, VA in December???

That's what we have right now.  It was a feat to get this blog updated with all the catch up needed at home.  We have more pic's somewhere.  But here is a start!  

Check out our Favorites in the right hand corner so you can get a closer look at these great Artisans!

 See you next time!  Denise and Steph.

THE ANTIQUE AND DESIGN CENTERHigh point, North Carolina 

We made it!  Second trip to setup for the High Point show starting the 12th of October thru the 18th.
Phew!  We are so glad we came early!
This building is so awesome.  There are so many vendors with the most amazing merchandise all in one place.  It sure was hard to focus on fixing our room when your eyes just can't keep to themselves!  Drooling over all the amazing stuff around us!  :)

Ok, Not a great picture but I wanted to share what our space looked like before we put it together.  Chaos!!!
Our Amazing Friend Trina Lucido from The Paper Flea market gave us a goody TOOL KIT gift!  She is just amazing!  What didn't she think of?  

Look at all of this stuff!  I want a tool kit to just lock her up in to help us all the time.  What would we do without you Trina???????

After working for about 5 hours, this is what we were able to pull together!
Front view of our space
Left front. Oh....those mirrors!  I love them!
This isn't a clear pic.  Sorry!  Back left venue with warm colors.  That is actually a pumpkin burnt orange colored chaise lounger.  It would be amazing in an room.
Back left corner near the hall windows.  This round table is made out of a huge round window.  We had an iron worker make a base for it to sit into.  Both Steph and I wanted to keep it.....but, When we both love something so much we decide to sell it.  Fair, is fair!  hahaha!
This is in the hallway.  We used our more masculine/rustic decor.  The two spheres on top of  the chairs are hanging lights.
Great writing desk, antique chest, wallpaper lamp, Huge Chalkboard and accessories!
Another venue.  Great antique game table, bar cart, Mohair lime green chair and one more wallpaper  roll lamp.  We are obviously obsessed with them!
A closer view!
and....last but not least this amazing drafting table.  I LOVE IT!

We are having such a blast.  Were taking off at 5:00 am tomorrow.  Few more finishing touches and the room is ready for business!
