Lilac Row at VMD: A Holiday Affair

We did it! Despite the crazy, gale-force winds sweeping across the state this weekend, the Vintage Market Days: A Holiday Affair event was a huge success for Lilac Row. Thank you so much to everyone who braved the weather to shop with us!

These pictures are not the best, because of the weird lighting inside the big tent, but all of the dust and dirt kept me from breaking out my camera for long. 

Also, I've finally set up a Lilac Row Facebook page, so be sure to come follow along!

Hooks & knobs

I love the idea of using pretty, old doorknobs or hooks to hold everything from towels to jewelry. It's the perfect marriage of decor and function. I'm especially loving the mix of rustic wood with the pretty glass and metallic knobs.

Colorful Jewelry


I am loving bright, jewel-toned jewelry this summer. A fun, colorful necklace or pair of earrings easily punches up my otherwise boring summer uniform of shorts and a tank or a cotton dress.

Lilac Row is primarily a collection of fun finds for the home, but we do have a small jewelry display in our booth. This month Laura let me in on the fun by letting me pick out a few of the bright pieces I've been loving to add to our inventory.

Here are a few of my picks:

Can't wait to bring a little color to the shop with these fun pieces! Are you loving the colorful jewelry trend as much as I am?

Plank Walls :: Creating Character

Most of the homes in my area of town are newer construction. While there are a lot of things I love about a new home, I have also always been drawn to the character and unique-ness of really old houses. Little quirks, architectural elements, nooks and crannies. One great way to give your new(er) home some warmth and character is to add planking to the walls. Even just a feature wall can change the whole feel of a room. Here are a few great rooms with wood planking on the walls.

Do you love a wood plank wall as much as we do?

Lilac Row at Vintage Market Days

Vintage Market Days was a huge success!

We are SO thankful to have been a part of this amazing event. It was hot, hot, HOT, but people still came out by the droves, and we had a blast. Here are some pictures of our booth. I rearranged and re-staged all weekend long as items sold! So much fun.


A huge thanks to my friend Sarah for joining forces with us for this event! I couldn't have done it without her and it was so fun to get to spend the weekend with her!

Jar Collections

I pulled out some cool old jars from my stash this weekend to put together this little collection. Most are Ball Mason jars and I filled each with either vintage white buttons or old wooden spools. 


I love this old baby bottle jar! Such a great find.

I think these are such a cool decor item on a shelf with old books or tucked next to a collection of family pictures on the mantle. You'll see all of these jars, the painted table and more for sale at our booth at Vintage Market Days next weekend! Hope to see you there!

Country Living: California Ranch

We're loving the look of this California ranch house, featured in Country Living. All of the bright, airy spaces are so soothing. It's easy to imagine stepping right inside to make myself at home! 

We're especially loving the rustic and industrial touches- the tree stump side table, pendant lighting in the kitchen and the wood tray holding pretty vintage soap bottles, to name a few!

Find more pics of this gorgeous home at Country Living.

Wash Your Hands

I've painted a new sign for the shop! I thought this would be perfect for a shared children's bathroom or mudroom. This and the other items shown will be at our booth at the Vintage Market Days Down South event in June. Hope to see you there!
