We fell in love with this market last year [and were the crazy people that bought the couch] so we hopped in the car and made a day of it again this year! It was a last minute final decision because home girl, Renna is not the best trip taker. But let me tell you, she was a CHAMP. Looks like the tables are turning on her handling car rides - HALLELUJAH!
Can you believe she was just a little miracle seedling in my belly this time last year?!
Our first stop was at the Mecca, The Found Cottage store. We didn’t have time to stop last time we were in MI & so we left early this time around. The goodies there are endless. Talk about sensory overload - in the best kinda way.
We then hit up the closest Gluten-Friendly restaurant maps could lead us to - because we had one hungry baby & we weren’t wasting time. We ended up at The Rainbow Grill with our 80 & 90 year old pals. Let‘s just say a newbie like Ren was a REAL hit.
Then it was off to the market! Ren got to meet her biggest fan, Meredith from Cloth + Cabin, in person! They were BFF at first sight. & I scooped up some goodies at their suupperrrr cute pop-up shop.
And I thought I had sensory overload at the shop... the market was a whole ‘nother level! Even MORE amazing vendors than last year. Take a looksie:
We ran into the golden Liz Marie, herself. We reminisced about being the crazies that stuffed a couch into our friend’s van last year & she made us feel like old friends. One of the sweetest gals around. Not to mention, Jose is also such a kind guy! We, of course, had to document how once again this all took place around a couch - but we didn’t buy this one - this time.
Renna & all her chunky baby glory was the hit of the market & we have already married her off to Abby’s little guy, Otto [from Adventures in Abby Land].
We caught up with Ali again at her amazing booth & made a new friend in Jaime at J’Me Decor - where we scooped up this year’s furniture find...
T’Da.... a hanging chair!
Brad wanted to model it for you with his best blogger poses. I think he nailed it.
I can‘t wait to get it all set up & styled in our home. I had my eye on a few of these chairs at the market ranging between $200-$250. Ali even had an amazing double seater chair - but when I saw hers it was already marked “sold.” I literally ran to Jaime’s booth to scoop up this one for just $70. A steal of a deal. Brad saw my last minute hesitation & pulled the trigger - he bought it for me. What a man, what a mighty good man.
Another magical time at one of our favorite markets. Wonder what will come home with us next year?
