Vintage & Vogue

Pin It Now!

Last Saturday was Vintage & Vogue's 1 year anniversary and they celebrated with a party at the store!

I was so honored to be their featured guest for the celebration!
Isn't this sweet? They made a sign that I was going to be there from 1:00-4:00!
It was so great to meet so many of my readers there! This photo above is me (with puffy allergy eyes) and Robin from Miscellaneous Thoughts blog. Robin and I met awhile back online through Flickr.
I took so many photos that I'm going to spread them out over 2 days.

There were lots of yummy goodies to eat! All baked by the women at the shop! Check out that beautiful vintage china cabinet above. The front has a solid beveled glass piece and the doors are on the side! It was gorgeous!
Here are two more of my readers that I met! This is Debby and Carole! Carole made me the cutest crocheted bag. It's in her hand. I'll show you a better photo of it tomorrow. I put the camera away after I took their photo so I didn't get any more people photos but I would say I met over 10 women that were there because they read my blog!
Here are some more photos of the shop (you can click to enlarge them)...

There is my favorite apothecary jar (above)! One of these days I may splurge and buy that!

I loved this cute pink hat! So cute!

I'll show some more photos of the shop tomorrow!
If you are in Northern California, this shop is a must see!

Hi Cindy!
I really enjoyed all the pics of Vintage & Vogue! The picture of you is great too ~ I almost feel like I'm corresponding with a celebrity and I get a "butterfly" feeling ~ I know I'm weird:) Anyway I'm glad you had a fun time!


Arleen @ Seasons for All said...

Hi Cindy. Wow, what beautiful things. And the photo of you and Robin is great! I'm going to go back and look at all these photos again. ~Arleen

Hi Cindy
What a beautiful shop. I saw a few things that I would love to have! I sure wish we had shops like that here in Charlotte. Congratulations on being the featured guest!

Thanks for the photos--it's like shopping!

Shari @ My Cottage of Bliss said...

My absolute favorite part of this post...the sign they created to announce you as their special guest! It made me smile...a lot!

And my second favorite part was your adorable picture with Robin. What "puffy allergy eyes"? You look beautiful!

Glenda said...

Did they give you the sign for your memoirs ?

That store is so great, I wish there was one closer. Their buyer, has a great eye for things.

OH, a star is born.......LOL

Esther Sunday said...

Beautiful store! Will put on the list for the next trip to Cali! That green clock shelf is to die for! I am sure they were thrilled to have you Cindy!

Kim @ Starshine Chic said...

What a darling store. I was drooling over most of the photos. Too bad I am in southern California. Maybe that's a good thing for my pocket book. Thanks for sharing & can't wait to see what tomorrows photos bring.

I love Vintage Vogue and was there ealier in the week. I was going to stop by on Saturday to meet you but twisted my ankle while gardening.... Darn... Looks like you guys had a lot of fun. Good news is I saved a lot of money by not going.... I can never resist buying something when I go there.

Hi Cindy, That is a very very beautiful shop!! I see so many must have items in your pictures..lol probably a good thing that I live so far away (I'm in Denmark, Europe)..lol
Well, you probably don't remember me. I took a long Blog break and have started a new Blog. I see you have my old Blog listed (Jannet's Country Cottage) and I hope that you will put my new Blog on your list and stop by for a visit ; )
Also, if you don't mind me saying this. I love that picture of you at the store. Your eyes does not look puffy to me at all, I think it would be a great profile picture (didn't you mention that you wanted to update that?!..hehe) you look great!
Hugs, Jannet

Kimberly said...

A Southern Rose said...

OMGOSH! I bet you had a blast there. It looked wonderful. Can't wait to see more pictures.

Joanne Kennedy said...

Why that is an honor to have them ask you to be there. How fun!

Did you give a talk or anything? Or were you just there for others to meet you?

Did people take your pictures and ask for your autograph? If not, they will be sorry when you become the new Martha Stewart.

I think you look wonderful in that photo. You don't look like you have puffy eyes. I think you looks perfect and beautiful!


Unknown said...

The shop looks so incredible. If I am ever close I will find it...and the treats...!!!

Oh, I just LOVE that vintage china cabinet! I love the green chair, the other china cabinet and I guess, just about everything there!

Congrats on being the guest of honor. Your photo looks good too. What a fun day.

I think you need to go there once a month and post photos.

Hi Cindy
I could get really lost in there, some really beautiful stuff and if you ever think about changing your profile photo this one is great!


Okay now this makes me want to live near you even more, LOL, the store looks so good and I love the house beside it. You must feel like a star, how sweet they made up a sign too, you go girly girl, you should feel so proud of yourself and what you have accomplished through your blog, enjoy!!

Frugalious Living said...

Hi Cindy!

Please excuse my negligence but I am unfamiliar with what you write. I would love to know though as your pictures are absolutely beautiful!!

What a fabulous little shop!!! Sounds like you had a lot of fun and met lots of wonderful people :o) I just wish I could have been there too!

Nancy @ Live love laugh said...

Do you think it makes sense to make a store a vacation destination? From NY? I think I could spend several days there! Congratulations to you for such a sweet honor! Thanks for the beautiful photos!!

Ginger said...

I wish I lived close enough to have gone and met you, and of course do some shopping there. I could drop a month's salary with no problem!!
Cute picture of you and your blogging friends.

FrenchGardenHouse said...

What a great, great shop. I'm ready to go there right now, if only I could instantly transport. I could buy a ton of things there, starting off with that great green chair.

Okay I had to come back and get another look before I go to bed. That's a great pic of you. And at least you are a Canon gal. ;-)


I am in love with that eye popping green chair and footstool with the black accents that Vintage and Vogue had outside the shop. Pretty and SO chic! Thanks for sharing a really special day. Don't you love being a celeb for the day???
