Last weekend I stopped by a local Vintage Market Place called GypsyFaire. A friend had mentioned it to me, so I decided to check it out with my husband. It was awesome! I cannot believe I have never been and it is literally 15 minute away.
You all know that I love shopping vintage and consignment shops and places like this is one of the reasons why I like shopping at Vintage Markets. It had so many unique pieces. I love when you can find pieces that are different, one of a kind pieces and simply put… Fabulous. I could have spent hours walking through the market but I had my husband with me. Next time, it will be a girls trip. Even though it was a quick walk thru of the market, it was very successful!
I have been on the lookout for a set like this one for a long time. We have an outdoor fireplace that we like to use but every time we would have a nice fire roaring, the person manning the fire would always use a stick to poke around at the logs. Not that there is anything wrong with that but I guess I was feeling nostalgic. My dad always used a fireplace tool set to poke at the fire when I was younger. I feel like the older I become, the more I want pieces of my childhood in my home.
I have found many sets at Goodwill and a few at some antique shops. They were either too expensive or not conducive to the outdoors. The fireplace tool set we found at the Gypsy Faire is solid forged iron. It was so heavy, I had trouble lifting it. This is perfect for the elements outside. I won’t have to worry about it being knocked over every time the wind blows and I won’t have to watch the males in this household poking the burning logs with a twig ever again!
So once we found the fabulous fireplace set, which I might add was about 6 minutes into the market, my hubs was quickly heading to the check out line. He kindly said I could continue looking around but I kind of felt the pressure to move it along.
Finding Unique Pieces
I did manage to snag two other pieces that I adore. First up is this vintage door knob photo holder.
Isn’t this piece delightful? I think it is absolutely charming! My favorite thing at the moment is displaying snapshots throughout the house in unique little holders and this one is spot on…perfection.
Vintage Door Knobs
As my husband was moving rapidly to the front of the check out line, I was able to scoop up something I had had my eye on since we first walked into the market. I don’t know about you but sometimes it is hard for me to shop for seasonal items (except Christmas items) when it seems to early in the season for it. Case in point…this pumpkin.
I loved it when I first saw it but it was 98 degrees outside, I was sweating like I had just completed an intense workout (which I had not) and it was the first weekend in September. I know Pinterest has been full of pumpkins and Autumn Home tours lately but I think I will wait until October or at least the last week of September!
As my husband inched closer and closer to the front of the line, I thought last chance and I grabbed it! I am so happy that I did. This rusty pumpkin will fit in quite nicely in my home this Fall.
The GypsyFaire opens the first weekend of each month. I am sure this trip was the first of many to come.
Until Next Time,
