I am a lucky girl

So when we moved into our new apartment, and furniture and things began falling into place, I had a few things in my mind that were ideal. Things that I had wanted for awhile, or things that made more sense than things we had before.

And I am lucky, because at the Vintage Bazaar, I found two of those things:
Chris insists that we have a fan in the bedroom. The one we had was a sad, black, plastic eyesore in our mostly-vintage room, and I was on the lookout for a vintage fan. We found this beauty within 2 minutes of walking in the door, and it works! It's a lovely seafoam green, and was $30. A pretty good deal, if you ask me.
I have wanted this headboard for years. I swear, I have been thinking of this exact one - one of my best friends in college was staying in a friend's basement, and he had a similar headboard for his bed in a deep gold color. It was awesome, but I wanted a green version. And somehow, some way, I found it at the Vintage Bazaar. It was a mere $45. Incredibly cheap, considering how similar looks are selling at Urban Outfitters for $350!

It was incredibly packed at the bazaar - there was one point where I literally could not move - so we left right after buying the headboard. Overall, there was a lot more clothing than I expected. I thought it was going to be mostly home stuff, but it was about 60% clothes. I am still looking forward to the next one - which will hopefully take place in a bigger room.
