A Vintage Market and a Vision Board!

A Vintage Market and a Vision Board!

Do you luv hunting at flea markets for vintage and unique treasures?  I totally do, however, I really get overwhelmed when I am there, luving everything I see...  So many times I have bought items that I just don't have a place for and then they sit in my basement for years.  And the thing is, I still luv them, they just don't fit into my home.  But I have a little trick and it really works!!!  It's called The Vision Board!

 I was so excited to be attending the upcoming Vermont Vintage Days Market, as I'm in the process of redecorating our master bedroom, bathroom, and sunroom.  I had so many ideas I couldn't stand it!  So I decided to stay focused and create a Vision Board to help guide and focus me.

This is a Vision Board that I put together in preparation for my visit to Vermont Vintage Market Days, a large flea market of vendors selling their vintage wares.

 

How does a Vision Board work?  Well for me, it starts with Pinterest.  I collect home inspiring ideas almost daily.  I have over 100 boards that include all things Vintage, Home Decor, Gardening, DIY ideas, etc.. It's a growing collection of all things home decor that inspires me. Here's a sneak peak.

 

 

 

 

In preparing for a day at the flea market, I review all my favorite inspo ideas that I have found on Pinterest and collect those photos to create my Vision Board.  I use an app called CanvaIt's super easy to use and is literally "drag and drop" technology.  I screenshot each pin that I am focused on and upload them into Canva to create my Vision Board.  You may click here for beginner tutorials.

 

The hardest part is limiting what I choose...  Then I download it into my phone (another super easy process) or you could print it out, etc..  Whatever works for you.  Then I have it with me when I am shopping thru the sea of treasures.  It works like a charm:)  It keeps me both focused on what I want and detours me away from things I just don't need.

 

So go ahead and take a look at my Vision Board ideas and I'll share with you a few of my finds and how I decorated with them in my home.

 

 

 

 

A small and large vintage shoe stretcher with pages of books wrapped in twine on a white bookshelf in our sunroom.  I found both of these at the Market and the vintage shoe stretcher was on my vision board!

 

 

 

 

Turning books around can also be a fun and easy way to brighten up bookshelves!

 

 

 

 

I luv the idea of a glass cloche and vintage bottles.  An idea also on my vision board and I found it all at the vintage market

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Of course, I did have to get one item, not on the Vision Board...  This wonderful vintage wooden sign with letters from Paris.  I thought this would be so fun in my kitchen and is a one of a kind!  What a great vintage market score!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 I still have many upcoming Vintage Markets to attend, until I can complete my Vision Board.  And I can't wait!  Be sure to join me here for more vintage inspo!

Why I refer to Love as "Luv"?
All my life I have been inspired by both my parents and a close aunt with their beautiful & unique antique decorating styles, much of which I incorporate into my own home designs today.  Over the years their letters, cards, emails, presents, and more all included the spelling Luv vs. Love.  And I have adored it!  I have always taken this to be a part of a generation gone by that I treasure dearly!  And I hope you will too friends!
