On Friday Kalissa had a doctor’s appointment in Waterloo. She had worked an overnight shift the night before so I offered to drive her to the appointment. I hate for her to drive after working the overnight shift especially if it’s a long trip which it is if we go to Waterloo. I told her I didn’t mind a bit taking her but the deal was I got to go to the Vintage Venture sale at The Twisted Sisters on the way home.
The Twisted Sisters host my favorite sale in the world. It has all sorts of vintage goodies and antiques.
I didn’t get a chance to take many pictures so I took these from their Facebook page. (You can find their page HERE)
If you were looking for big wardrobes and cabinets, oh my, they had them.
They hold the sale in a big shed that used to be a horse barn.
The gals pick the best things…all things I would love to own. I love the big red cupboard.
Here is a better picture of it.
That wainscotting cupboard…be still my heart.
I really liked this…Kalissa and I measured it and I’ve been measuring places around the house where I might be able to put it. Ah!! So tempting.
Big cabinets like this are a HUGE weakness for me.
Kalissa was excited about the pink dresser…but like me, we don’t have much space left in our houses.
I tried to be fast because Kalissa needed to get home so she could sleep.
…but how does one be fast when there are so many goodies to take in.
I should have bought this red cart…As of my writing this, it’s the first day of the sale. I might go back and get the red cart. I think it would look great out on my front porch with plants in it…or in the house with quilts in it. It’s red and I’m all about red!!
I need at an hour to look if not longer. I was looking for picture frames but didn’t find one for my All Creatures Great and Small.
I loved this secretaray.
Couldn’t believe how many cat things there were.
I looked at quilt tops and linens. They had fabric I would t have looked through if I had more time.
Kalissa liked this cabinet. The doors were her favorite.
This shelf tempted me. I thought of putting quilts in the bottom and knick-knacks on the other shelves.
The outside was decorated for Fall…
…and there were LOTS of goodies outside including a great bargain shopping section. If I lived in the country I would have bought one of the two big carts they had and would have planted them FULL of flowers.
It was a fast shopping time…but still fun. Going to their sales is always my favorite time of the year!! I have another story to tell about the day in another blog post…stay tuned.
