Last weekend, I spent the day with a dear friend in her very cute, vintage chic home in Wheaton.  After getting some inspiration from her home, we went off to shop at various consignment and vintage stores around the neighborhood.

While my style isn't as "vintage", I love the idea of adding older pieces to our clean and simple style.

Vintage Menagerie Antiques in Glen Ellyn was my favorite store!  Visit there if you haven't already...the store is fabulous, inexpensive and the owner is adorable.

Here are the two pieces I picked up.

A fun candle holder
 Do you have any vintage stores that you recommend??  If so, leave a comment!


  1. Do I win a prize for posting a comment LOL. I like those vintage finds! Mom

  2. Hey Courtney, I just stopped in at Vintage Menagerie last weekend and loved it. Such great stuff in there... Let me know if you ever make it over this way again. Would love to go with you...or even better, we could to Vintage Menagerie and the Bountiful Barn once it opens again.
