Just WHAT did I buy last weekend?

Saturday was our big shopping trip to Oregon. The Funky Junk Sisters were having a Junk Salvation Flea Market in Hillsboro and we Jazz girls loaded in the truck to get our shop on. My first buy of the day was this handmade bag. Made from burlap, vintage doilys and fabrics this bag had my name written all over it.

It's actually quite large  and the strap is long enough that you can wear it across your shoulder so you can wear it and shop hands free. Always a good thing.

The yummiest smelling soap and a lavender sachet were also from the flea market. I didn't buy much actually, mostly looked at all the eye candy. I was hoping to buy some things for Jazz but things weren't marked at a price that I could make a profit on. It was fun looking though, they had such awesome and creative displays and merchandise. I was very inspired.

After the Junk Salvation show my sister took us back to Portland to some of her favorite antique shops. First was Monticello. This shop is FABULOUS! It was my second time there and I loved it just as much as the first time.  I have been looking for some pink pillows for my bed for months and months.

Finally at Monticello I hit the jackpot when I spotted these two beautiful pink linen pillows.
I couldn't decide between the two so they both had to come home with me.

After the antique store we hit up Homegoods. My first time there. It was a bit overwhelming, there was so much STUFF and the place was packed. I found these super soft Ralph Lauren sheets so it was worth the trip. My Mom had to have a set too. We also went to Marshalls and I got a few clothing items. Sorry, no pictures but they're nothing fancy. It was a long day. I did find a few treasures for Jazz at the antique shops, believe it or not. I'll be posting them on All That Jazz Vintage in the next couple of days if you want to take a peek.

This pretty little thing I found yesterday at the Goodwill. 
It pays to stop in, you never know what you'll find!
