We decided to do a little exploring in San Diego instead. Grabbed quick beers at a brewery, Cuban pastries to munch on later, and set out to peruse some antique malls which is kind of our Sunday ritual anyway. We chanced upon this one antique mall called Vignettes and my eyeballs nearly popped out of their sockets, this place was oozing with Frenchy, girlie goodness. It was like Anthropologie on vintage crack.
This is one of the first things you see when you walk in. The dresses are vintage reproductions and mostly just for decoration.
I am such a sucker for fresh flowers in booth displays. They're even pretty when they're wilting.
This was my favorite little vignette. Industrial meets French shabby chic, which is what I really love.
Sorry these photos aren't the greatest quality, I stupidly left my camera in the car, so phone photos it is! But...isn't this place amazing?!? And the most incredible part were the prices were so reasonable! Here are a few items I'm considering to populate my vintage atelier.
These last two pieces are from the antique shop down the street, still reasonable prices. Trying to decide which piece I want the most in the atelier. I really love the French looking china hutch cabinet, but it's a rather large piece, but for $235!? That's a steal! I am probably going to get the white wardrobe piece since I really need storage that can hide a "mess". Because let's face it, sometimes running a vintage shop just ain't always pretty.
Have to make a decision by Sunday, so we'll see which piece comes home with me! *wink*
