This weekend I headed back to my parent’s house so I could borrow their car to get to the bi-annual Girlfriends of Greenwood antiques sale. My mission: find a desk. My second mission: avoid buying almost everything else.
An old desk from UVa…only $142! Absolutely loved it – if only I didn’t live in a shoebox!
Faux-bamboo chairs…love me some Chinoiserie…
And then I found jewelry. (The title of my to-be-penned memoir?)
Debra of the store OneZee’s had a great selection of kitschy ’70’s items, a passion we both share with mutual friend Nora of Low Vintage. Debra and I quickly bonded over The Seventeen Book of Etiquette and Entertaining (or: the perfect guide to getting and keeping a man without shaming your friends and family!)
Um, this woman edited Seventeen at some point? And she was named Enid?
Also, there were scones!
I did indeed find a desk, or rather, an old vanity that I’ll be using as a desk. Trés glamorous, no? I won’t be unveiling it on the blog until I’m ready to before-and-after it, though! Plans are a-brewing…
Thanks to all of the ladies for allowing me to take these pictures and being amazing antiques show hostesses! In the course of two days I have somehow managed to misplace every business card I picked up, but if you have questions you can find at least a little more information at greenwoodcountrystore.com and covesvillestoreantiques.com.
UPDATE: I found the cards!
