Local Vintage Treasure Trove {Glory Days Antiques}

Most of you know I live in Oregon, and one town over from mine is the most fun, most amazing little  giant shop ever!  It's called Glory Days Antiques.  It's huge!   It takes a couple of hours to get through every booth. 



My girlfriend Krista and I consider it our little mommy escape.  It usually goes something like this....

Sunday afternoon Krista Calls "Hey Jenn, wanna run out to Glory Days?" (que the Bruce Springsteen music)  We giggle about that everytime!!  It's our theme song of course!!

She heads down the hill to my house, and we set off on a "quick" run through the shop.  3 hours later, they are turning off the lights as we make our way through the last few booths, and packing all of our loot to the cashier. (yes we often shut the place down)


I cannot tell you how fun this shop is. Here are a few pictures I snapped the last few times we were there. Some of them are from the Holiday Season, but they are amazing!!


This happens to be one of our favorite shops in the store!  Colby Cottage!  I just want to move this whole set-up into my home!  Today!


This is a new one!  What a cute idea with the clipboards and book pages!  Why didn't I think of that?  I love clip boards and book pages.....  hello!




Are you dreaming or inspired yet?



These are some fun soy candles that they put in these adorable jars!  I have an idea in mind with this style!   Love them!!


Here are some fun holiday shots.  It was so much fun during the holidays, and I was so inspired for my own decor and tree this year!







My Latest Find was this vintage school desk! It is the perfect fit for my littles to do homework while I cook dinner! They love it!



And for just over $15, I too was in love!!




So, if you live in the local area, you must check them out!

Once we've shopped out hearts our, we head to our favorite Mexican restaurant and grab a tasty margarita and some table side guacamole........  And depending on our service we may sit there for an hour or two, you never know!

By the time we finally make it to our last destination (home) the kids are all snug in their beds, and the husbands are usually sitting on the couch, and just give the "look".  You know the "Oh, sure, quick trip huh?" look!

But what is most important is that we both have 3 children, and both need that much needed mom time to talk about school, the kids, the husbands and ourselves!  It's such a treat, and I adore our Friendship! 

I look forward to many more years of this!
