St Louis Vintage Market Days just happened in Chesterfield, MO. I normally do a follow up post with pictures from vendor booths but this time it is going to be a little different.

St. Louis Vintage Market Days – Spring 2015 Wrap Up

OH MY GOSH! St. Louis Vintage Market Days ended 2 weeks ago and I feel like it was YESTERDAY. What an amazing whirl wind! So how did this year’s event go? Well, Amazing. I love this picture I took.

Oh my gosh! It has been a while since I showed you guys a project and all the steps from start to finish!
Funny story: One Friday night a while back, Chanda (owner of Redheaded Vintage Girl and St. Louis Vintage Market Days) called me and says “Are you home? Cause I’m on my way to your house with furniture!”
