There's this place, an antique market in Denver that's only open for a few months from spring to fall, one Saturday a month, A Paris Street Antique Market in the Aspen Grove neighborhood. Even the location sounds so charming.
What I love is that it's full of actual antiques, along with, of course, the usually crafty things, but not so many handmade crafts that they take over the real antiques, which is the reason I go to an antique market.
I fell in love with a gorgeous black typewriter, but just couldn't afford it. A friend of mine has an old typewriter, which she let me borrow for our wedding, and it sat in the lobby with the story of our engagement which I wrote and typed up in pretty typewriter font.
I did bring home that lovely tobacco tin with the yellow label, and the thing that made it so perfect is that S&M are the initials of our last names, so it was such a cute touch on the cake table to hold my collection of vintage cake servers.
The same day I bought the tin, I also found those cute little flower girl dresses for my nieces (pictured in last week's wedding post), which made me feel a little better for not getting to buy the typewriter. Or that beautiful blue bicycle which even has an S for Smoke!
Sadly, the market is now closed for the season, although they will have one indoor market day in December this year. I've already marked it on my calender.
