A Very Bella Weekend: Part II {Shopping}


The Bellas sure do know how to shop! An antique store, Second Chance, in Omaha was open especially for us on Thursday night and Bellas took it by storm! What a fun, vast store full of one-of-a-kind vintage goodies! They told us they'd be in business an extra five years because of the Bellas!! Here, Julie Collings and I are soaking it all in!
The girls out shopping!
Love this wreath at the entrance of Fairmont Antiques.
So many pretties!
I LOVED this painting!
Lilli loved this hooked piece. Gorgeous!



Then we had to get back for the fabulous and fun vendor night!!

Sweetie pie Tammy Gilley was in her junk gypsy best!!! The goodies at her table were divine!Melissa of Little Melfie's World and Hope of Paper Relics had a table together. What delightful art!
Julie and I had a blast going from table to table, inspired beyond belief!

Dede Warren was having a ball!! She is so much fun:)

So glad that Maggie Summer's found me. I adore her work and it was so fun to meet her in person!
Amy Powers was as cute as her sweet as sugar booth!
Danielle Muller looking very sassy!
Heather at her candy pink Speckled Egg booth. Loved all the supplies she had!

Heather Bullard's PresentPast Collection booth was like heaven!

Keep scrolling down for part one of my Silver Bella weekend. Next will be my class projects!

I'm glad you had some vendor night pictures to show, I was so busy shopping I didn't take enough.

And I agree, Heather's booth was wonderful and so was she. I feel like I met a life long friend in her.

I'm having so much vicarious fun seeing all these photos of your Bella weekend. It occurred to me that it might be sort of hard to shop with so many friendly competitors who love the same things. LOL. But worth it all the same, yes? I LOVE that painting of the little girl with the roses - she reminds me SO MUCH of my younger sister as a child. Wow. Keep the photos coming - I wanna see more! Thanks.
