My Chapel Market Finds...Part One

Well, I had a few items on my wish list for the Chapel Market, and I can say, my wishes came true. First on list, some pretty ironstone from the gal that got me collecting it a few years ago...MISS MUSTARD SEED!!! I was lovin' what I was seeing on her blog, so off I went to some yard sales and thrift stores. Within a few months, I had a nice little collection. Then, fast forward, when Coastal Charm Interiors was born, more ironstone was added to my stash. Okay ladies, now I don't keep all of it, I do add it to my inventory and let my customers enjoy it too. Next on my wish list, a cute little Tonka truck from that charming shop in Rockford, IL...URBAN FARMGIRL, another wish came true. I am always drooling over Mary's shop, so I was super excited for a chance to shop her booth, right here in sweet home Alabama! The other item that I am sharing today, was a bonus item. If you missed my THE CHAPEL MARKET post on then can click here to see it. Okay, it's now time to see the pics. 

                               Here is my MMS ironstone...aren't they

                                   Love this pretty little pitcher.

                                      I don't think I can ever
                                     have too many ironstone

                       They were so meant to be here...don't ya think?

                                      She even has really pretty
                                                price tags!!!

                                        This is my bonus item!

                              When I spotted this beauty, I felt the Lord
                               speaking to me. He was saying, Linda, there
                               is a long line of ladies outside, that are hoping
                               when they finally get inside, that their wishes
                               will come true too. So, since I didn't want to be
                               greedy, I put back a really pretty ironstone veggie
                               bowl. So many of us are collecting ironstone, and
                               I was sure that there were a lot of these collectors,
                               right outside in that line. Okay, I will get this neat
                               old camera and add it our old family camera, and
                                just maybe a new collection will be born today.

                              He was right there in Mary's cute booth,
                                    just waiting on me to find him!

Isn't he just perfect for my business cards?
I can also see him hauling a cute little
Christmas tree!

While the ironstone and the camera are quite lovely in your decor, it is the red truck I love. Yes! Perfect for Christmas trees.

Sounds like a great time! I have always wanted a camera like that, great for photo shoots! And the little red truck is great for holding your business cards!

Not sure how I missed that pretty little truck, but since you let me have the bicycle I guess I can't complain. :-)

You really hauled it in! I'm so jealous. I collect ironstone, too, and I would kill for that little red truck!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

You got some pretty pieces, Linda! It was very nice of you not to buy all the ironstone. : ) Love the little truck. They look so cute decorated with a little tree at Christmas time and it does hold your cards perfectly. It's always nice when you can go to these things and find things you've been wanting.

Crazy. All this time and I don't think I knew you were a Bama girl too? Me too! Eeek! Love meeting my Bama people! Ha! Thanks for sharing all your fun finds! I had to stay off of Instagram the other day cause I kept seeing Shaunna and Rhoda's posts and they made me so hungry for home and to be at the Market! Ah! Maybe next year! We live in Seattle now so getting home seems to be even harder! Thanks again for sharing and hope you'll follow along over on my blog and drop in to say hello! Best, Kennesha from Restoration House Interiors.

must love junk said...

I've been wanting a little truck like that! Love it :)

Kelly said...

That Chapel Market looked a lot of fun! I would've enjoyed going to that, I'm sure. You found some great pieces. I agree that you can never have too much ironstone! It looks best when grouped together anyway. The old camera is a unique find and the little red truck is cute used as a card holder.

Tina@WhatWeKeep said...

Lucky you! Great ironstone finds, but I love the little truck ,too!

Brandi said...

That's wonderful that you were able to go. I love all of your finds. The ironstone is gorgeous. And the little red truck is perfect!

Well, it certainly looks like you got some really great things at the Market...I would love to go if they have another one....and love the red truck...

Sherry @ No Minimalist Here said...

Linda, I also love ironstone and you found some great pieces. The little truck is adorable.

Kerryanne @ Shabby Art Boutique said...

Would love to have gone shopping with you Linda... you bought all my favourite things. Loving the little truck. I can imagine lots of photo opportunities for it too!
