my success at the Vintage Bazaar

Yesterday I attended the Vintage Bazaar. It was hot, it was crowded, but I still came away with some great stuff. And a chocolate chip scone (not pictured, unfortunately).

This may sound silly - but I've been looking for a cute vintage napkin holder for awhile now. Something that can sit on my table all the time, so I don't have a messy pile of napkins hanging out. 

The lighting was pretty bad at the VB, so when I spotted the Vintage Goodies booth full of kitchen wares lit by clip lights, I followed the light and found the napkin holder of my dreams!

... and was talked into the matching canisters. They were a set! How could I split them up?!

I have been obsessed with paint-by-numbers lately, and our bathroom is sort of Our Lady of Guadalupe - themed, so when I saw this paint-by-number of Our Lady, I knew I had to have it! I bought it from Ord-Red as soon as I walked in the door, and got many compliments as I carried it around. She is now happy in her new home next to the alpaca. 

Although not as big and exciting as last time, these finds were still great - I can't wait for the next Vintage Bazaar!
