For individuals of you who don&#8217t currently know, my minor sister not too long ago moved out of town to start a new life and work in Williamsburg, Virginia. Even though we&#8217re all a little unhappy that she&#8217s no longer a 10-minute trek away, we&#8217re much more than happy to make the three-hour drive to Williamsburg (particularly, Colonial Williamsburg), simply because it just so transpires to be a loved ones favourite. Between the educational element of the historic region and the outlet purchasing within a stone&#8217s throw of Williamsburg&#8217s center, there&#8217s always so significantly to do. My personal favorite component however? The Williamsburg Antique Mall.

In the course of our latest ladies&#8217 weekend, my sister and I went, not once, but twice to this sprawling mecca of vintage treasures. A couple of quick stats for you: 400 dealers (a lot of from out of state) and 45,000 square feet of booths and show situations. To say I was like a child in a candy store would be a gross understatement. Inside of minutes, my sister and I had separated, each wandering our personal way—her to check out the antique rugs and ultra-traditional side tables and dressers, and me to scout out the mid-century pieces.

I had observed the \$25 lamp pictured over in our 1st trip to the mall, but passed, pondering that I didn&#8217t have anyplace to place it. The \$48 rolling cart (also pictured above) was yet another piece that caught my eye, but alas, I didn&#8217t have anywhere to put it.

One point I did end up getting that 1st journey was the painting. I fell in adore with its retro colours and styling (that shade of violet is perfection!) and, at \$60 for an unique piece of framed artwork, I just couldn&#8217t depart it behind. The tiny succulent also came home with me that day, but happily didn&#8217t value a cent—it was sitting at the examine-out counter with a hand-wrtten sign that study, &#8220I&#8217m free of charge! Take me home!&#8221 I did as directed.

Following taking the night to feel about factors, I did some mental rearranging and Craigslisting and came up with the best spot to set the two the rolling cart and lamp, so back to the mall we went the up coming morning. I purchased the cart, the lamp and also the cute pink glass dish. I am an impulse purchaser, yes, but I am oh-so thankful for the trait now that I have every little thing property. My aim this year is to get rid of all of the Big Box objects I have and to exchange them with antique, vintage pieces all my personal. I&#8217d say we&#8217re off to a wonderful start&#8230
