Last month we spent a quick weekend in Nashville. There was a lot of work that needed to be done, so we didn’t get to spend as much time as usual hitting up our favorite antique spots. Remember our loot from the Nashville flea last year? Such antique goodness in Nashville. Get ready to be bombarded.
This hanging wicker chair was in amazing shape. I’ve been wanting one for a very long time and Emily Henderson makes me want one even more. Technically we own 2, but they aren’t in good enough shape. This beauty was $695 which put it way out of budget especially since you can buy a new one at Serena and Lily for $450. Still gorgeous.
This lamp was insane. It was hand crafted not vintage. Think of how amazing it would look in a minimalist living room or dare I say it nursery! It was $95 – not a terrible price but too much when we didn’t have a clear purpose for it.
This vintage airplane propeller was $200 I think. It was huge. I would have loved to get it for Nick’s office to mount over a window. Of course he technically doesn’t have an office right now, so we passed.
I can’t remember how much this was and now I’m wondering why in the world we didn’t buy it. Those gorgeous pulls. Oh why did I not take this with me.
[Nick Edit: I think it was around $300... more than we were wanting to spend and I wasn't sure we hvae room for it on the way back]
These basketball jersey were amazingly vintage. Just looking at them makes me think about Pleasantville.
This black and white portrait is so creepy and would look great with the right art around it. It was $15, and we almost bought it. We have 1 creepy painting already, so we could use another one. I am hoping to get one from my actual relatives though.
Blame the pregnancy brain, but I can’t remember the price of this vintage dress form. I remember thinking it wasn’t a terrible price for how amazing it was, but it wasn’t a steal of a deal. I mean it is gorgeous.
Now for our purchases…
You know we have a thing for airplanes around here. When we saw this vintage airplane mobile, there was no way we could pass it up. It was $25. It’s even more adorable in person. The tiny wood airplanes have cloth wings and string detailing. Those wood clouds send the adorableness factor through the roof. Look for this mobile in various nursery moodboards soon.
We’ve seen several vintage Girl Scout uniforms, but we finally bought one for Ramona. It was her souvenir of sorts. She keeps saying it’s going to be her Halloween costume. I tried to convince her that we should go as a family s’more with the new baby. However she says, “That’s weird, mommy.” Whatevs little kid.
So there you have it. A couple of purchases and a lot of lusting after some beautiful vintage items.
