Living in Houston is great if you love shopping for vintage and antiques. This weekend we got to drive out to Hempstead, not even an hour out of town, and we got to shop at the Vintage Market Days of North West Houston. I had never gotten to attend a Vintage Market Days show before, but I had heard good things. When I spotted this pair of gorgeous chairs I almost tripped. I love these chairs, but the $1,200 price tag meant I had to walk away with nothing but this picture. They did a great job styling the chairs with the doors.
These yellow chairs almost came home with me. I LOVE the yellow, and they were in great condition, but we are a family of 6 so four chairs just wasn’t going to cut it.
The best part of this trip was getting to see our friends from 27 Cutoff! Matt and April used to live in Houston and then they went and moved to Arkansas. Now Matt makes this gorgeous furniture and they travel around as a family to sell it.
Their sweet daughter painted this sweet Fruits of the Spirit. Don’t forget to snag your 27 Cutoff swag if you see them.
Across from 27 Cutoff is Bobby Boyd Designs. These pieces are all hand-crafted from repurposed ceiling tins. I didn’t bring these pieces home, but I will show you what I did buy when I get them hung up. I also got to chat with Bobby himself and that was a lot of fun too.
At the end of the shopping trip we got to have dinner with April from 27 Cutoff and Brandy, another friend from Houston. Between our three families we brought our 11 children and we had lots of fun eating Mexican food.
Getting out of Houston every once in a while is so important for me. The chance to get out of the city and enjoy a little bit of the country is refreshing.
I hope you enjoyed this little peak into a Vintage Market Days show and a small town Saturday night.
