So, to break it down: I saw the most beautiful, handcrafted, reclaimed and salvaged furniture...old church pews and arched bookcases, chunky coffee tables and cowhide leather couches. For $10,000 I could have purchased an altar from an actual catholic church...for real. This darling old couple we met have a permanent antique shop set up there; they get the stuff off a boat and the husband lovingly refurbishes everything so it looks like new. I would die to have some of their amazing pieces!
It was pretty overwhelming...and not having Vann with me I couldn't make any major purchases, BUT we did happen on this little woman who handpaints children's furniture...and her creations could not be any sweeter. Seriously.
We practically bought her out. A table and four chairs, a nightstand for Charlie's room, and the sweetest little kindergarten school desk you've ever seen.
