Vintage & Vogue Part Two

Pin It Now!

Here are the rest of the photos from Vintage & Vogue! I LOVE the birdcage above!

I also love this piece above!
I think I love it all...




These are the women that work at Vintage & Vogue.







Below are the gifts I received...
The beautiful mosaic birdhouse was a gift from the gals at Vintage & Vogue! It's so beautiful and looks perfect on my birdhouse table! It was made by a local mosaic artist.
The also gave me this adorable cherub dish with a silver spoon! The sterling salt and pepper shakers are a recent gift from my mom.

The crocheted bag above was made by one of my readers, Carole! Carole came into the shop because of my blog and got a nice surprise when she found out a friend of hers, Linda, who she hasn't seen in over 20 years owns Vintage & Vogue!

RobinfromCA said...

Cindy your pictures turned out so wonderfully! It was fun to see you there. There are so many things I want to go back and purchase but that's always the case when I'm there! One of those Chanel windows is very tempting...

Beautiful pictures and I LOVE your gifts. The cherub and spoon...love'em! Birdhouse ~ want it!

Glenda/MidSouth said...

I could get lost in there. Love that birdcage. That kind of store could do some serious damage to my bank account. :-) I spotted the black & white print of the eiffel tower immediately. I just framed a black & white photo I took of a replica of the eiffel tower that is located in a small town in NW TN.

Olive Rue said...

OMG! How long did it take for them to try and pull you out of that store? OMG!!! I know I would have been like a kid in a candy store trying to get all those detail shots.

Yes, Ed was the chinese spammer that bombarded my blog. What a shame. Can't people find anything better to do??

Anyway great tour. Thanks for sharing all those yummy photos.

noelandjoe said...

cute bird house. Its going to match your house. The place you went looks like a great place to shop for dressing up your home.

Suzann @ Lavender and Roses said...

Why don't I have a great store like this? That's what I wanna know.
Secondly, why don't I know any cool queens like you in my town? Huh? Cindy, why not?

: )
You are a blessing and I love this store.

Chatelaine said...

I am drooling over this shop. The birdcage is fabulous and I love all the clocks. I am looking for one for my living room and any one of the ones in your photos would do nicely.

Your photos are wonderful. Glad you had such a great time.

TattingChic said...

Those were some super awesome photos from that shop! :)

Lee Laurie said...

Oh I see so many beautiful things! I would be broke if I lived close to that store! I love the black hutch and I love the light blue swan vase. I love swans. That birdhouse that they gave you is beautiful. All of your gifts were.

Hugs,
Lee Laurie

Suzie said...

I could really get lost in that shop, and in those photos. They are amazing... I loved the gifts you were given and the story about finding a long lost friend through you... How wonderful. Blogging is just the bestest experience. Have a wonderful weekend... Hugs..

mgster said...

Wow! I wish that shop was near me...I would visit it once a week for sure. It's as if the owners stocked it with just the stuff that I love! Beautiful. And that birdhouse is amazing.

Betsy said...

I've been reading your blog for months but I don't think I've ever left a comment but it's time to tell you how much I love it!!!
The photos are stunning!
I searched out the bells at the Dollar Tree yesterday and all three were still there! Yippee!
I have also started a cherub collection because of your blog.
Thanks for all the creative and beautiful ideas!
We ALL appreciate you so much!
And that's a LOT of exclamation points!!!

Andrea at Opulent Cottage said...

Wow, wow and wow!! I'll be able to look at these photos again and again for inspiration. And Cindy, that's a wonderful picture of you! It looks like it was a really fun experience!

Doris D said...

Ouch! My eyes still hurt from staring so long at all that eye candy! Any chance you can talk her into an online store? Loved it all!

Cathy Miller said...

Oh. My. Gosh. I am ready to hop on a plane and head your way! Gorgeous, fabulous, wonderful stuff. I almost hyperventilated just looking at the pictures! Thanks so much for sharing...I loved it!!

Thanks so much for sharing!!!

Melanie said...

There is so much to look at in that shop. That dresser ... didn't you redo a dresser that looks just like that?

I don't want to sound like a stalker, but you're so pretty! ;-)

Bettsi said...

WOW! I love how fluffy and full it is!

YSLGuy said...

So much to look at! I want it all, especially some of the Chanel stuff I saw.

Crystal said...

Hello Cindy,
First visit to your blog, it is just wonderful. So many great and inspiring ideas.
I wish I lived in CA. Although, I would probably be broke from shopping at the Vintage and Vogue shop. Your tour of the shop, just made me feel like I was back in a France shop :D Oh, that parisienne flair is to dies for, so to speak.
I will definitely come back.
Thanks for sharing!

Dear Miss Cindy,

As always, the photography is absolutely gorgeous and inspiring. My favorite pic out of this series is the ivory cupboard/hutch with the robin's egg blue pottery and glassware. Thanks for sharing such beauty.

Kindest regards,
Penny Sue

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Wow, this is even better than the current post I read on this place! I really hope that they will maybe think about selling online (maybe not the furniture); I would definitely love to buy some of their things.
