There were just a few cool things I wanted to share with you all from my trip to Colorado.

My friend, Cathy, and I stopped in Pagosa Springs, CO and checked out an antique shop and then headed over to a little cafe for lunch. We sat and I noticed all of these Eames molded plywood chairs. They have to be original and they were soooo comfortable. I asked the server about them and she said they love them and get inquiries on people wanting to purchase them all the time. The restaurant was full of these chairs. I’d love to have some for a dining room table.

When we finally arrived in Salida, CO we stopped at an estate sale. I got some cool stuff, but this couch was awesome. If I was a vintage dealer, I would have tried to talk the lady out of this couch. It sooo reminds me of Emily Henderson.

But, I did manage to score this great little bookshelf. Acutally, I think it was a gutted TV cabinet. But it was $2 (!!!!). I mean, I couldn’t just leave it there, right? At this same sale sat this whale cutting board. Totally quirky but I wanted it. Couldn’t justify it for now, but it would look awesome in a baby room on a gallery wall.

And, my favorite, this piece of lovely art. Art is so subjective so you might totally hate this great guitar dude, but I love him. He hung in the house we stayed in Salida, CO and so did tons of other truly great vintage pieces. I love seeing how people curate their own love for vintage.
