Antique Andventures

So in a recent post I shared how I had recently purchased a vintage bar cart and vanity at a little antique store in Eastern Market. Well yesterday during my lunch break, HS and I rode over and picked up the bar cart as well as two other items that I found. We had put the items on lay away. I wish items at the mall could be put on lay away, but oh the trouble I would get myself in to.

I also got a great little wood chair to put with my vanity. It came pink, since it was only 14 DOLLARS, I am still in shock I am going to make that my practice piece to try painting. I also picked up a fur coat from the 50’s which was purchased at Hudson’s. I literally fell in love with it. I will put pictures of those items as soon as the jacket gets back from the dry cleaners! And I will do a DIY on the chair!

Anyways I snapped some photos of the bar cart and vanity, my apologies I took them with my iphone in the dark antique store.
