My local vintage lovers are surely looking for a follow-up on how Saturday’s popup shops were. If you missed it, I outlined an itinerary last week of where to be. As promised, I’m back with some highlights!
I started the day out at the Nannygoat estate sale. These ladies did not disappoint with 9 rooms full of vintage and antique goodness staged to my delight! There was something for everyone for sure including a fair amount of mantiques. Highlight reel…
I finally made it into the newest vintage shop on Main Street in Manayunk. I met the darling owners of MeadowSweet. Their displays are immaculately curated. I could move right into that little shop. But instead, I took something warm and cozy home. An army green wool blanket. Yes, please.
While wandering Main Street, I snapped some icy pics of the sculptures for your viewing pleasure. So fun!
I have to admit that I started out strong on the picture-taking front but as the day progressed, the pictures did not. I visited the artsy ladies at Cupid Gets Crafty and talked so much that I didn’t take a single picture. After picking out a few small gifts (mostly for me!) I visited the Outpost event at 3P4 and found a new favorite.
Peg and Awl. First of all, the aesthetic of their popup was so satisfying-ly simple yet stately. I love how everything is handmade by them from unique antique materials. See the brown canvas and leather bag? I’m the proud new owner of it. The leather is from a WWII revolver strap. The soldier even carved his name into it. A little piece of history on my tote.
After Outpost, I left town with a detour to Philadelphia Salvage. And lastly the mid-century popup Nomad. The large open space had a gallery feel to it with many cozy vignettes that flowed one into another.
I still haven’t made it into RevivalSmith and a few other brick and mortars on Main. Another day. Another shopping excursion. In the meantime, I’m loving my new acquisitions.
