What’s your favorite thing to shop for? For me, it has to be a tie between shopping for vintage garden decor and flowers. Come along as I show you what I found on my latest girl’s trip to Sumner, Wa.
We are only days away from the official first day of spring.
Did you ever think we would get here?
Every year, I get the spring shopping bug.
It’s the time for me to bring home spring bulbs, primroses, house plants, and of course… some AMAZING thrifted vintage decor goodies for my garden.

A Day of Vintage Garden Decor and Spring Flower Shopping
I have a good friend that had a birthday last week, so what better way to celebrate her special day than to spend a day of vintage garden decor and spring flower shopping.
This post was all about the incredible shopping experience we had at VanLierop Garden Market in Sumner, Wa.
Vintage Garden and Yard Art Inspiration
This garden market has the most creative ideas when it comes to vintage garden and yard art. I walked away with so much inspiration and ideas for my own garden.
I’ve always wanted a vintage cart for my garden. I didn’t have enough room in my car for this one, but who knows? I may be back to pick it up another day.
Can’t you see it filled with gorgeous flowers? The perfect vintage garden decor!
TIP: When filling up a cart or wheelbarrow with dirt, fill it with old plant containers to take up as much space as possible before adding dirt. This will make the cart lighter and easier to handle and you’ll use much less dirt.
You can never have enough rusty and chippy stools in the garden. You can use them to sit plants on or for a little seating area to use as a small table to set drinks on.
Check out this GORGEOUS rusted vintage table!
It was my favorite find of the day. The problem is that I don’t have any extra space to use it at home. The $650 price tag was over my budget for the day.
I’m so in love with it though.
Here’s a very interesting and cool piece. It has a metal top with many wooden compartments. Can’t you see it in a large cottage or farmhouse kitchen used as an island?
A Look Inside the Greenhouse
The greenhouse had a variety of spring plants such as shamrocks and tulips.
I don’t know if you can see them, but they had vintage bikes throughout. Unfortunately, I was so distracted and forgot to take a close-up picture of them.
Look at all of the hanging baskets.
Vintage rusty nesting boxes were also on hand.
The Indoor Shopping Space
Most of the vintage garden pieces were outdoors, but there was an indoor space in the garden market that had home decor and plenty of spring inspiration.
There was a great selection of faux flowers and greenery. I loved the two glass tables that were used to display all their pretty products.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my vintage garden decor and spring flower shopping experience. It really was such a fun day full of inspiration and great ideas.

Such a great store! It would be super hard to resist buying too much lol. Thanks for sharing; I love virtual shopping. XO- MaryJo
Thank you MaryJo. Virtual shopping is the very best.
Kim what a great shop! I’m all about the tulips and can’t wait to see them all in your garden!!! That stool in the indoor shop was so pretty too. I want that! Xo
I loved all their daffodils and tulips, and of course, the vintage garden decor.
Kim, I love going to nurseries. This one looked amazing with all the vintage pieces. That table was so beautiful but you were right. The price was steep for my blood too. I like finding the bargain items.
I’m definitely on the hunt for a table like this but at a much cheaper price! Thanks for visiting Tammy.
Kim you have so many inspiring ideas. Love checking in with you💙
Thanks so much Ann!

It’s such a pretty nursery! Now I want to go visit mine…but I always leave with way too many new houseplants!! That long piece with the cubbies is really nice, you are right, that would make a cool island.
I think I might have bought that piece if my kitchen would have been big enough.
