Vintage Friends & Finds

Last Saturday was a near perfect day. Met up with an old friend, someone I've known more than 40 years, to check out a few vintage sales in the back country of Langley. There are some very talented women in the Fraser Valley who put together great vintage items and beautifully refurbished furniture pieces for a vintage inspired yard sale. It is exciting to discover what they will make available to buy. These tag sales are very well received! I never fail to come home with great treasure.
 So the plan was to meet up in Langley at Porter's store for breakfast. We were delighted to discover the 'corner store' from my friend’s childhood (1970's) has been converted into a great cafe; so breakfast and vintage market shopping was the plan.

But the morning was a vintage adventure of its own. The five corners of Murrayville hold many sweet memories from when we were young. And it is a signpost – marking who we were, all we hoped for and where we are now. It was a middle-aged moment!

The floor hadn't changed, that was a 'trip' as we used to say when we were teens, to walk across a threshold from your past.

  The vintage yard sales did not disappoint either. First stop was Red Door Farm. Amazing, and must be experienced.

We followed with a visit to Nostalgic Nest- what a treat.  Found some beautiful kitchen wares, Pyrex and lovely furnishings.
