My Summer Shopping Spree

Summer has been all about the vintage shopping sprees for me this year.

I’ve really had good luck finding some great things at pretty reasonable prices.

Today I’m going to share the shops I visited this summer and the treasures I found.

Some places were all about thrifting and getting the best deals, while others were fun to shop, get inspiration, and pay more than I wanted to.

Thrifting for Vintage

There were 2 places where I found some killer deals.

BREMERTON VINTAGE FLEA MARKET

The first thrifting stop was the Bremerton Vintage Flea Market. This is, and will always be, one of my favorite places to shop for vintage because there are always great deals to be had.

I love the vendors at this flea market as well. They’re open every Saturday from 10-4.

Here are a few vintage items that caught my attention.

Are you looking for a special vintage sign?

This vendor has you covered.

I really loved Bob’s Big Boy. I remember eating there as a kid when I lived in Southern California. If only I had a place for these fun things!

Someone reading this must have a special spot for Mr. Peanut!

This is a vendor that I always seem to buy something from.

If you are looking to add a bowl or two to your Pyrex collection this vendor pretty much has it all.

I only have a few Pyrex pieces but these are too expensive for my budget. It’s still so much fun to look at all of the pieces though. I love all the bright and beautiful colors.

We had the avocado and white Spring Blossom Corningware growing up. Too bad my mom got rid of the set.

I’ve definitely bought my fair share of vintage glass bottles from this booth.

MY VINTAGE FINDS

It’s always a treat when I find vintage copper pieces when shopping, especially when they’re priced to sell.

pewter goblets

As far as pewter goes, I have only purchased a pitcher but I found some really great vintage pieces like these goblets, plates, gravy boat, and a candlestick.

Silver vintage pieces are always something I’m interested in. I got a great deal on the silverware, cups and teapot.

I also found an ice bucket and some silver trays.

vintage green glasses

Last but not least, I took home this green glassware for future tablescapes. I’ve been looking for glasses in this color for quite a while.

vintage shopping at The Port Orchard Antique Mall

OLDE CENTRAL ANTIQUE MALL

Next up is the Olde Central Antique Mall in Port Orchard. I found a few things here but I really had to search for them.

They had plenty of Desert Rose vintage dishes available.

vintage dollhouse

Did you have a doll house like this growing up?

I always wished I had one but it just wasn’t in the cards.

baskets
MY VINTAGE FINDS

Do I need any more baskets? Well…no. But they were on sale for $5 and $7. I couldn’t pass them up.

I’m using this blue and white vintage piece for faux plants that will hang on the wall. I only paid $7.50 for it.

Shopping for Vintage

I think we can all agree that thrifting for vintage and antiques is the most fun! We all want a great deal, right?

But there aren’t many places to go thrifting in my area. So a lot of times I end up paying more for things that you would find less expensive at an estate sale or thrift store.

These stores have so many beautiful things and are just fun for getting a lot of decor ideas.

vintage shopping at Saltwater Antiques

SALTWATER ANTIQUES

I love going to Poulsbo, WA. every chance I get. And this is one of the reasons why.

Saltwater Antiques never fails to disappoint. I find so many vintage goodies to take home on every trip.

Here are some unique vintage items that are always fun to look at.

They have wonderful vintage and antique furniture pieces for sale.

A lot of times I find the perfect piece but know I won’t be able to fit it into my house. So I have to go with smaller vintage treasures.

I absolutely love my new orange rusty vintage stool with rollers. Because I have bad knees and can’t squat or get up and down off the floor very easily, stools like this are perfect for me when painting or cleaning near the floor.

I’m loving the color of this wire basket and I just need to find its new home.

vintage shopping at Josephine's Mercantile

JOSEPHINE’S MERCANTILE

This is one of my favorite shops in Port Orchard, WA. I get so many ideas at Josephine’s Mercantile. It’s a really large space with so many wonderful antique and vintage pieces.

Whether you’re looking for an antique piece of furniture or a vintage ironstone pitcher, they have it all.

One of the things I love most about this shop is the way they display their items that are for sale. It really does give you great ideas and inspiration to take back home with you.

I have a thing for vintage wicker but do not have the room to bring some home with me. I loved the wicker sofa table and round table and took about 15 minutes to decide if I could find a place for them.

Unfortunately, I couldn’t.

But I did take home the cute white round wooden table to use for a nightstand in my bedroom.

Mid-century modern anyone?

There are plenty of vintage goodies to take home with you.

Here are even more examples of the pieces I wanted to take home with me but didn’t have the space. These are such unique vintage pieces.

DETAILS HOME AND GARDEN

If you are a regular on my blog then you have seen me share my shopping trips at Details Home and Garden before.

This is such a great shopping experience and there are some really unique pieces that are brought in quite regularly.

The owner does a remarkable job merchandising his vintage inventory. Every time I visit the shop looks completely different with fresh and new merchandise.

I love all the coastal elements that are here. They even had a coastal-themed tree here last Christmas.

In addition to the vintage pieces, Details carries other things as well such as candles, dish and glassware, cards, books and so much more.

Their selection of live plants and planters is incredible.

I was really on a true mission for good deals on my summer vintage shopping spree so I only found one thing that I took home this time.

I am loving this vintage iron table with a glass top and have already used it on my deck and also in my living room.

REVIVAL PNW

This was a fun first-time visit to Revival PNW.

There isn’t much vintage here other than the pieces that are on display but it was still a fun place to look around.

Leave me a comment below and let me know if there was a store you really liked here.

Until next time,

Happy Vintage Shopping!

Be sure to check out their blogs for this month’s inspiration.

Have you ever thought about upcycling a “not-so-pretty” vase? Well, Jennifer shares her flea market flip here and will inspire you to try it yourself.
