I love junk, and I enjoy shopping for great deals. My favorite place to shop near my home is my local Vendors’ Village.
This is how they describe themselves on their site:
Vendors' Village is an antique and vendor mall with locations in Kentucky and Indiana. We carry an eclectic variety of items: primitive furniture, antiques & decor.
On one of my recent visits to Vendors’ Village I got some great stuff that I shared on Facebook. While sharing on there, I tagged Vendors’ Village, and they saw my post. The stores are owned by two brothers, Eli and Matt. They contacted me and offered me a $200 shopping spree to their brand new location in Clarksville Indiana. I was so excited! Their grand opening was on February 1, 2016. If you are in the area, and you are looking to open a booth to sell your stuff, I really think you should contact them. The store is huge, bright, and clean.
Cousin Terry went with me, and we had a great day!
They served coffee and doughnuts for the grand opening. The gentleman serving them is Matt and Eli’s dad.
I love a lot of stuff in this booth of vintage goodies.
Of course I was drawn to this booth of furniture.
If only I needed paint!
(have you seen my stash of paint?)
I’ve always loved this type of photography. I even did it once, as a gift for Jamie and Andy’s wedding. You can read about it in my post Alphabet Photography Letters.
These vintage chairs caught my eye immediately—I think there may have been an actual happy dance involved.
I enjoyed looking at all of these primitive cupboards.
Doesn’t everyone need a velvet wing chair?
Remember, I visited on their grand opening day—and we had had two snow storms the week before. It appears that may have deterred several new vendors from stocking their booths. Look how nice, clean and organized it is! See the Clarksville Facebook Page Here.
Now, are you ready to see what came home with me?
Terry found this $10 floor lamp for me. (she loves helping me spend my money)
Terry stopped to look at a table and chairs. Notice how bright and clean the store is.
We actually drove Terry’s truck because I wanted to make sure I had plenty of room to bring stuff home. When we got back to Terry’s house, we unloaded her truck and moved all my goodies into my SUV.
We are pretty good packing, don’t you think?
While we were out for the day we made a few other stops. Check out everything that came out of my vehicle.
Here are all the goodies we picked up on this wonderful day of thrift shopping! Are you shocked that we were able to get all of this in my car?
The books will be painted, the chairs . . . a bench? The rubber mat is for the basement shop. The sewing cabinet has already had it’s makeover, check back tomorrow. Everything else will get some kind of makeover in due time.
I would like to thank Vendors’ Village for a fun day of shopping, I can’t wait to visit again.
