Let's Talk Vintage #24: Finding Vintage On A One Tank Trip

Welcome to Let's Talk Vintage! This is where we get to share our latest finds, projects, or whatever you're doing that includes vintage.

This past weekend we took a one tank trip to visit a historical town filled with all kinds of vintage goodies. Both physical to the touch and those just seen with the eye.

Come on along, and I'll show you!

There are so many lighthouses, we'll never be able to see them all, but we were happy to find one in this sleepy little artsy town near the Chesapeake Bay.
This little town is rich with the history
connected to the war of 1812.

And then we turned and found a maritime museum. I just had to show Bebe these antique bathing suits and beach shoes!

Then before dinner along the water, we checked out a local antique mall.

Didn't take me too long before I found
a booth filled with vintage cuteness.

Earlier we had stopped in a shop called "JoRetro."  It was filled with all things mid century modern and "Etsy" like wares. Check out this necklace made from Pyrex!
I love both styles... vintage charm
 and mid century modern.
Now let's see who is featured this week
from last week's link up:
Donna at
found there's nothing odd
about a six legged table.
And Audrey of Timeless Treasures
shared her cobbler's boot forms.
First time for me to see them!
What a treasure for sure.
And Kim at Snug Harbor showed us
how to turn a forgotten, neglected
trunk into this really cool,
 repurposed piece!
Now it's your turn, so Let's Talk Vintage!

Hi Jill,
What a great outing! I love lighthouses and antique shops. I like the name of that antique shop using Cannery in its name.
Thanks so much for hosting and have a wonderful week.

Looks like a great place for an outing. What a great idea to do with broken Pyrex or other glass/pottery items.
