On Saturday, Chris and I woke up to rain showers and cold temperatures, giving us the idea that we would have to postpone our trip to Brownville for another day...but we chose not to. I'm so glad that we did. The skies cleared and the temperatures rose. So much that I had to lose my sweater and ditch my Frye's. It was a constant battle to stay cool and our poor puppy tried to find shade under every stand and parked car she could find.
|Malachite cocktail ring|
Brownville was adorable. It had the picturesque, quaint little downtown with an ice cream parlor, book and antique stores all lined up in a row. Though I think that I was more impressed with the town's 19th century architecture than the selection from the different flea market vendors. Even though there were many vendors, I felt that they all pretty much had the same thing: dinner and serve wear, farm goods, and bottles. None of which I was looking for. It really lacked vintage clothing and accessories and furniture pieces. I saw no sign of scarves, handbags, boots, or even clothing, which I've seen at so many other flea markets. But that doesn't mean I came home empty handed. I found myself a malachite cocktail ring with a sterling silver base and an antique rug that I was told came from an old farm house. The rug is a great addition to my office and of course, the ring looks great on my hand.
Dresses, dresses, and more dresses have been added to the store...go visit to find your perfect one.
