Shopping Fun

Hello Everyone.
Just checking in to say Hello and share a cute little place I went shopping.

I spent the day with these two sweeties.  My daughter Jen and granddaughter Charlotte.


This wonderful place was called Avant Gardens and is now called the Shops on 71.  It is three wonderful vendors that rent this place and sell the most amazing things.  I was here the other day with a good friend and she spied something she just loved so my daughter and I took a ride back to pick up this wonderful gift for my friends birthday. 

Now these next three pictures are for you Texas gals and southwest girls.  One of the vendors takes cowboy boots and stuffs them full of wonderful fall decor for front door decor.  Loved these.





Look at these sweet chippy hangers.  The cloche on the left my daughter bought to put on her dining table.  She will add fall decor under it and make it pretty.


All the vendors are starting to bring out their fall decor.

I loved the faux fall flowers this vendor has made into many cute centerpieces.

Loved this guy he just made me smile.

One of the vendors had a whole lot of "Kris" things.  White, chippy shabbies galore!!!!

Swooning over these white corbels.

Loved this sweet little kitchen island.


Lots and lots of farmhouse decor.

Look at this cute lamp!!!!  This would be so cute in a laundry room.

I of course needed one of these sweet shirts!

Sweet overnight bag.

I am thinking about this lovely piece.  This armoire has hanging on one side and drawers on the other.  I am thinking of getting this and putting it in our bedroom or the guest room of the new house.  Our 1949 cottage we bought does not have big closets so this would give us some more wardrobe storage space.  Of course it will be painted white!!!!  It has really cute feet!!!  The price was really good on this piece and they are having a grand opening sale on Saturday so I think it will be even less.

Progress is continuing on the new house.  Hoping the basement stuff will be done this week and then the garage all done by the weekend.  Then we can start to think about setting up our move in.  Ahhh a girl can dream!!!

Have a lovely rest of the week and wonderful weekend.
xoxo
Kris

  1. Ahh Kris, this looks like my kind of store! I must argue with you on the cowgirl boots though, that they are for Texas or Southwest girls... I am from NC and here we have tons of people who wear boots and that decor would be a hit around here too. :) I love the cloche your daughter purchased, I am envisioning all of the pretty ways you could use it to decorate with!

  13. Good morning Kris!

    Now this is my kind of day....and I've spent many of them this summer, perusing great antique shoppes. It's over for me now; today is my last day of summer vacation and how will I spend it? I HAVE TO GO TO THE DENTIST!!!!!!!

    The kids don't go back to school until Tuesday, September 5. But next week, we teachers have to get back for meetings and preparation. The good part is however, that on my way home from school, there are lots of antique shoppes to stop into!!!!!!

    How is the house going?

  15. Now you're talking. I know when you're shopping, it's decor time! Love the old wardrobe. It'll look great in your home, and even be period-appropriate! Jen's wire cloche is really cute too. Hey, those boots are a two-fer - you get door decor and door knockers, both for one price, lol.

  16. Love the patina on the armoire!

    What a cutie charlottes is :).

  18. What a fun place to shop! I saw several things that would look fab in your house...see, I'm helping you spend your money...ha! The armoire would be perfect for your home. The farmhouse I grew up in had only one closet and it wasn't even in a bedroom. I had an old chifferobe in my room that I kinda wish I had now. Your daughter and granddaughter are very pretty. Love the cloche Jen chose for her home. You're getting closer to moving...are you counting the days? Have a good weekend. xoxo

  19. That's a sweet picture of Jen and Charlotte! What a great place to shop, Kris! There are so many wonderful signs and I also love the cows and the mint colored scales. The big bag is fantastic too. The armoire would be wonderful for your new home.
    Have a great weekend!

  21. Hi Kris! What a beautiful shop! So many things caught my eye in your photos -I can't imagine what it's like in person! I have a metal cloche like the one your daughter bought! Love that island and cute little desk and that old washer lamp is fabulous! Those big white corbels need a place in your new cottage! Diggin the t-shirt and the overnight bag and YES! The wardrobe painted white would make for incredible and charming extra storage! I hope you can get it! So glad y'all had a fun time and that your construction is almost complete! Have a great weekend! Hugs!

  25. Kris, there is nothing better than a good shopping trip! This looks like a great store. You can see such a variety in these kinds of shops. You need that wardrobe.

  37. That armoire would be lovely once Kris-ed with white paint! I love the corbels too, and that pale green scales on the island you liked is a dreamy color and shape.

    You're sure making me crave some shopping time with granddaughters! I pray that all goes well with the final countdown to move in time!

  42. Your daughter really resembles Terry, but she has the sweet sparkle in her eyes that reminds me if you! Charlotte is so cute. Is this the daughter that also has Abby?

    Where the heck is this place??? I want to go! I saw a lot of cute things I'd love. The T shirt is you, and I hope you snag the armoire!
