Visited the Vintage Market

Happy Memorial Day Weekend everyone! I know I’ve been sort of MIA, so I hope to be able to catch you all up while I get an extra day off!

Husband and I were excited to spend some time together, we debated visiting a nearby city, but instead decided to explore our own downtown.

Lunch and visiting a special Vintage Market were on the agenda! We drove around to find this special market, I’d assumed it would have been where the Farmers Market usually is, but it wasn’t. We found it, parked the truck, and then discovered a new-to-us Mediterranean restaurant. The outdoor seating with palm frond-ed umbrellas won us over, especially with our puppy in tow!

The food did not disappoint! The sweet tea tastes different, with a splash of different spices like cinnamon. Husband ordered a kebab wrap, while I had a delicious greek salad covered in yummy feta cheese!

Then we walked over to the one day market! The lovely weather has put me in the mood for summer, and this market partnered with that feeling perfectly.

Upon entrance an exiting couple gave us their extra raffle tickets. To our surprise, about a minute later, (literally the NEXT drawing) I won! I was able to choose from a variety of lovely items, representing each of the vendors.

I picked a set of rustic wooden coasters, made by a newly debuted father and daughter company! It was actually because of them I knew about the event. The daughter is in my Sunday School class at church, and last summer she’d amaze us with her rustic creations that she posted on facebook. I’m so excited for her to be creating more of these items to share with the community! Check out their website.

We wandered around the market with about 30 + vendors, but didn’t stay long as the poor puppy was worn out. We gave her one of the complimentary water bottles, and she downed the entire thing. We figured we needed to get her home.

I enjoyed it! I hope to visit more markets, maybe next time we’ll leave the puppy at home so we have more time to shop. I enjoyed seeing all of the creativity of community members…it really felt like visiting etsy in my backyard.

  • 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.
