Come Check Out My Vintage Finds from Pennsylvania

Hello, While visiting Pennsylvania in June, I took a day to visit some of my favorite places that I loved to shop when I lived there! Here are some finds that I purchased and wanted to share with you. This french market basket was something that I have been looking and wanting for a quite a long time....So I came across this one and bought it.....I love the look of it along with the cute little wheels.



I actually paid only $75 for this and knew it was a great deal.  Lately I have been seeing them listed as high as $150 and not in the best of shape.  



See the linen above?  My mother bought this for me for my birthday.  It is also a vintage bureau scarf that I draped over the back of basket....This piece is also in great condition.....Love it!!!!

I also visited one of my favorite shops, Acorn Cottage Style.....I had so much fun in there since I had a gift certificate from my husband he gave me for my birthday.....I was like a little kid in a candy shop, HA!

Now check out the vintage linen pillow that I found there.....





I love the intricate hand embroidery on it along with the cute little red buttons. This is now one of my favorite pillows....If you already don't know, I have a crush on pillows!!  The pillow was embroidered sometime in the 1950s and is in excellent shape.....

Oh and guess what else I found?  Well I will share with you another time.....

Have you found any vintage finds lately?

Thanks for stopping by.
