It was such a fun time thrifting with the gals in Vermont over this past month. I discovered a new vintage shop locally, The Vintage Soul, where I scored a complete 8-piece table setting of pink depression glass. And I brought home a beautiful vintage pine hutch from my old standby, Stone House Antique Center.

The Vintage Soul

I love having a local vintage shop where I can thrift. Do you have one where you live? The Vintage Soul has a variety of old and new finds. As you enter the shop, it looks like an old Vermont country store with popcorn, fudge, coffee, and more. I think my favorite thing about it, though, is the several themed tables that vendors have set up in this shop. Aren’t these like eye candy for the vintage lover?

This is where I found a complete 8-piece set of cherry blossom pink depression glass for just $100. I have seen one dish selling for $20 in many antique shops. They even came with dishware storage bags! This is the first depression glass that I have owned. Check out the spring table created with this beautiful set.

I also found this $40 beautiful linen and blue eyelet tablecloth, along with a $20 white lace doily, which I used to layer the table.

The cute crock-like vase centerpiece holds four bunnies. It’s perfect for spring and Easter, but honestly, I will use this year-round, too!

The Vermont vintage and thrift shops are really booming right now. There has been a large influx of people moving to Vermont from New York City over the past year, which has caused the antique shops to really stock up, and I’m finding amazing prices and deals, too!

An Antique Hutch

I’ve been rearranging a sitting area of our dining room recently and have been looking for a piece to anchor the space. I discovered a beautiful vintage pine hutch in a booth at Stone House Antique Center. The size and storage options absolutely grabbed me! So I headed home to think about it. It would work perfectly, so we headed back the following day to pick it up. However, the merchant had unfortunately given me the wrong measurements, and it wouldn’t fit in my SUV.

But after some collaboration, we were able to get the bottom part of the hutch on top of my car and the drawers inside the car for the 45-minute ride home. And the top half went into my husband’s smaller vehicle.

On the way home, we stopped at a local Vermont Inn for lunch to round out what I think to be a great day thrifting. I was getting a little nervous, though, on the ride home about how we would get this thrifted hutch down off the top of my car when we were swiftly greeted by our neighbor upon pulling into the driveway!

Just look at all that storage!
