Antiquing is My Cardio
Hey there peeps! There is a saying I’ve heard that goes “Antiquing is my cardio…” and that basically sums up this past weekend. (Especially considering that it was like 100 degrees in North Georgia…)
On Saturday, we visited the Lakewood 400 Antiques Market in Cumming, Ga, an antiques and vintage items sale that happens once a month in this big warehouse space. All kinds of antique vendors come set-up their displays and there is so much to see.
My sister, niece, mom and I were on the hunt for some old doors that my sister could use in the house they’re building… and while we didn’t end up coming home with a door, we did find:
- An old mantel
- Some vintage books
- A big letter board
- And some fancy lamps
(Here’s a sneak peek of the mantel! 😍)
After stopping there, with no luck finding some doors, we headed to The Painted Tree in Buford to check them out. This gorgeous booth did have some bea-u-tiful doors, but they weren’t quite what we were looking for. (But we’d have gladly used everything in this space! 😆)
After we rested up Saturday night, we headed back out on Sunday to H&H Homestead in Jefferson, another monthly vintage/antique/salvage sale. This was my first trip here, and there was so much good stuff; however, we think we’ll wait til Fall to head back. The goods are spread between a couple of small buildings and a big area outside… and that heat on Sunday was no joke!
This is what vintage furniture dreams of made of…
I absolutely LOVED this piece of furniture… but I couldn’t decide if I really needed it… We were there at closing, so I think I’ll wait til next month and see if I’m still thinking about it. If so, we may face the heat again to grab it!
So, two days, three “stores,” and -10 lbs. later, it was time to head back to week-day life. We’re still on the lookout for some old doors at a bargain price, but we definitely had some fun!
And if you have to get some cardio in, you might as well go antiquing! 😄
