On the hunt for these vintage pieces...

I'm focusing on building up a great little collection of vintage rentals. "Small but mighty" is the mindset. Since I have so many helpful (& thrifty) friends and family members, I thought I'd put an inspiration post together to give you all an idea of what I'm looking for next. Many of you have even asked me about this. I so appreciate your help as I stretch my nickels and dimes to pull this together. Between Brett and I, we're able to do the work that is often needed for these pieces. We'll need to find most of them before they hit the antique shops.

The starting point is pretty tables, buffets and dressers. They are versatile pieces and "must haves" for so many events. Here are some ideas....

I would love to add a wood fireplace mantel to my collection. I'm seeing these more and more and I absolutely LOVE them! Hope to have one in my collection very soon.

The beautiful open field and prodigious tree at Blue Ribbon Vendor venue, Vinewood Plantation, provided the perfect Southern backdrop that they were looking for! Anna and Nathan’s goal throughout their wedding planning was to create a comfortable …

A charming old church pew would be a wonderful addition. Some places are gathering sets of these and using them in both indoor and outdoor settings. I will happily start with one.

I need to find a settee and/or sofa. It's a tricky piece for me because I'll need to be able to use it "as is" before investing in reupholstery. The lounge areas that are created with settees, sofas and chairs are so fun! And often these pieces are used for photo shoots as well.

 I am looking for inspiration to upholster an 18thC. Italian settee and came across some beautiful images of French and Italian upholstered settees, most of them embellished with cushions. Whether upholstered in damask, velvet, linen or cotton, all can be beautiful, depending on the style of the room where it has to

Vintage gold décor for your wedding. Lovely white mantel, empty golf frame with fresh flower arrangement in the center. Beautiful old, vintage chairs with side table in between. Charming and very pretty.

And finally, I need to find an old general store counter (or something along those lines) to work with. It can be used as a wine/bar area or for food buffets.

awesome bar

If anyone wants to find me a quaint and charming store front like one of these, I say go for it. I would actually love to have a shop in Boone, Iowa if time keeps marching on. I think Boone needs to become an antique town filled with shops, cafes and charming B&B's.
