Secret Santa 2015 [Blogger Edition]

Who doesn’t love a good game of Secret Santa?!  Now that I’m a stay at home mama, I’ve missed playing with my co-workers.  Well, thankfully my blogger friends were up for the challenge.  I figured it would be fun and it would be a great way to get to know eachother on a more personal level.  If you ask me, it turned out super fun and I was pretty geeked to find my little package on the front steps all the way from TEXAS!

Say hello to Janet!  She is the owner of White Barn Vintage.  White Barn Vintage has three amazing booth locations, Collette’s Vintage Art & Antiques (Burton, MI), The Shops at 101 (Holly, MI) and Memories Antique Mall (Rankin, MI).

The name, White Barn Vintage, says it all when it’s come to Janet’s style.  Her items and style are RIGHT up my alley.  Her booth is always stocked with all kinds of goodies, from larger items to smalls.  She always has great seasonal items too.  The deer she makes at Christmas time, A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E.  Her handmade pumpkins during the fall, LOVE them!

Meet Melissa!  She’s the owner of the Shabby Love booth at Collette’s Vintage Art & Antiques.

Melissa’s booth is ONE of a kind and it’s always my first stop when I head to Collette’s.  When you first walk in, her booth is directly to your right.  She always has unique pieces AND she has a fabulous blog.

Melissa enjoys having pieces of history around her home.  She said antiquing is “in her blood,” as she grew up doing it.  She loves hunting for new pieces!  Melissa has had her booth for 3 years, since Collette’s opened.  So, when you make your trip to Collette’s, don’t forget to peek in Shabby Love’s booth!

Current items:

 Some of my favorites include the small antique watering can and her yard stick stool!

Don’t forget to like her Facebook page for booth updates!

Collette’s Vintage Art & Antiques

Welcome to Collette’s Vintage Art & Antiques.

This morning, Miss Shabby Grace herself insisted on making a trip here.  How could I say no?  So, after breakfast we headed north on M-15.

Collette’s is HUGE and a lot of fun.  It has been open for 3 years and has 300 booths! HOLY SMOKES!  I definitely have my favorite booths.  I mean, who wouldn’t?  We all have our different styles.  Regardless, there’s something for everyone.  For some, it’s a walk down memory lane!  When you plan your trip, set some time aside.  You could walk this place for HOURS!  Leave the kiddos at home or grab the baby carrier, snacks, toys … whatever you gotta do!

Check out some items that caught our eye this mornin’:

 Curious what we bought?

I snagged these goodies from Shabby Love.
