On Memorial Day, my friends, Kelly and Susan and I went to the annual Gypsy Caravan. The caravan is an annual event that takes place every year on Memorial Day and is put on by the St Louis Symphony. It is a large flea market with lots of goodies, food trucks and lemonade shake ups, what’s not to love?!? This was my first time going to the market so I didn’t know what to expect. We had a great time and left hot, sweaty and sunburnt.
I really wasn’t looking for items for the shop but I found a few things that I couldn’t leave behind. So I will share what came home with me.
First up is this awesome arrow bookend. I love this thing, it’s so cool. I added it to the shop and then shared a picture of it on Instagram and within a day it was gone. Nancy over at Powell Brower at Home bought it for a client. I hope that she shares a picture of the bookend in it’s forever home.
I saw these from a distance and quickly made my way to them. They weren’t priced so I figured that they would be too much. I asked the man how much and when he told me the price I couldn’t say “I’ll take them” fast enough! I think that these decanters would be so chic on a barcart.
I wasn’t sure about this one. I am not a fashion blogger, but this little gold purse is so cute. It metal and in great shape. It is a vintage Koret clutch. Again, I know nothing about vintage handbags but I just thought this was stunning.
Next up is this brass letter opener. I have a hard time leaving any brass object behind…so it came home with me.
Know anyone that smokes a pipe? Yeah, me either but because I am a brass hoarder I now have one!
So that was my haul from the Gypsy Caravan! We had a great time and I am sure that we will brave the crowds again next year.
