Found Christmas Spirit at the Vintage Market

Saturday Adventure Series

Saturdays seem to be Husband and my adventure days. Today’s adventure was one I’d been highly anticipating, the Christmas Vintage Market. I went to my first of these bi-annual events in the late spring, and couldn’t wait to see what was available this time!

This time it was held in an open garage space, which limited my picture taking, but I was still impressed by the cute Christmas Carol theme that adorned the previously blank urban space!

Upon seeing the book tree, I ran over to have husband take a picture.

He indulges my requests, but some times refuses to take pictures with me. Such was the case for the fun photo booth space. A few sweet girls offered to take a picture with both of us, but I knew he wouldn’t go for it, even despite the top hat and mustache!

I opened carried, for the first time in awhile. A vendor noticed the holster and asked about it. Fun time to share about GREAT firearms website/holsters for women. (I seriously need to create that static page and cards with the website link).

Unlike the spring even, I wasn’t lucky enough to win a raffle, but I did find this hand made bookish ornament for our Christmas tree, so I still won.

Husband even found something to like, yummy dry rub, sure we’ll employ that soon. He’d hoped to indulge in the food truck offerings, but they were backed up with orders. Good thing the area is filled with ton of restaurants. We went to a sub shop around the corner and had great CHEAP chili dawgs.

I think I’m in the Christmas and craft making spirit now! :0)

  • Rescued Penguins For My Birthday I daydream about being a Disney princess…but it isn’t for the princes, the fancy castle, clothes, or even the books (I know *gasp*!) its because I secretly wish that I could whistle (ok, I can’t even whistle in the first place…) and animals would come walk over to me. Sure there are some animals that [...]

About Me

Hi! My name is Erin, and this is a place to "process out loud" in the words of my friends. You've probably noticed that the theme is kind of a wide theme, that is much like my life as I'm interested in MANY things: traveling, photography, jogging (its new!), being crafty, homesteading, firearms/self defense, and learning how to be a good wife. Through all of these things my goal is growing to know Christ more, and to make Him known. Each post shares a little about the promise that God has given me, that He'll finish what he began in me! (Phil 1:6) So thank you for joining me on this wonderful adventure.
