Dearest SWEET GYPSY readers...
too long since my last post...
time flies when you're JUNKING!!!
As we prepare to hit the road, bound for FARM CHICKS in Spokane, WA...
I pause to reminisce on my FAVE GYPSY HOTSPOTS...
that have become absolute must stops whenever that OL' GYPSY WANDERLUST takes hold!!!
This french-y boutique in Seattle is a classy gem! Pam Robinson knows how to capture that Paris market ambiance due to her steady supply of amazing vintage goods direct from her travels to flea markets in FRANCE! Ooooo-La-La...
If in Seattle, WA absolutely make time to visit this FAB lifestyle shop at
2802 East Madison St.
Next stop on the GYPSY TRAIL...
MONTICELLO ANTIQUES MARKETPLACE
Any of you that have visited this GLORIOUS dream world know what I'M TALKIN' 'BOUT when I say HEAVEN!!!
20,000 sq. feet and 100 dealers of pure antique/vintage, creative, inspiring, AWESOMENESS!!
A truly UNCOMMON shopping experience!
Bathrooms...a cafe...extra SPECIAL, FRIENDLY HELPFUL staff (that happen to love gypsies) ;) Can I move in?
Words don't begin to describe the extrodinary experience that shopping MONTICELLO brings...
Run, don't walk to this MECCA of "Designers Paradise" for VINTAGE GYPSY SOULS!
Tell 'em a crazy IDAHO GYPSY sent ya! ;)
8600 Southeast Stark Street
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE...
This ECLECTIC and FUNKED UP mix of vintage, antique, hand picked Gypsy finery!
Audrey has an innate sense for the alchemy of MIXIN' IT UP!
We wandered into this shop on a whim and I was pleasantly blown away!
You are sure to find leopard and chrome, mixed with antlers, flora, fauna, cowboy boots, fine asian antiques, blended with designer books and candles, jars of buttons, designer jewelry...
Gotta see it for yourself!
First round in the shop I scored...QUEEN BEE THROWN...
Tattered, stained, PINK, LOVE! Lives at my house now! ;)
...As well as a SHABBY, CHIPPY, PEELY, PINK DEER! (Whole other post...soon)
When you visit tell Audrey I sent ya!
2409 21st Street
JUNKEE is Jessica's brain child...she has mad, over-the-top, design/display skills!!
Let the FASHIONISTA in you run WILD!
As for the "other side" we are so consumed with excitement, and anticipation (every time we visit) for the treasures we are sure to find, we have failed to take even one picture of all the GOODNESS...so sorry for our negligence! We promise to do better next time!
960 South Virginia Street
Last but not least....
PLEASE, GYPSY GODS...
let me live in a world that is GARDENOLOGY!! OMG
For once I am speechless and there just aren't enough adjectives to explain my intense LOVE and PASSION for this sanctuary of PURE MAGIC!
The displays and vignettes are second to none! Always a fresh seasonal theme throughout the entire space...no detail left undone!
The indoor/outdoor environment created evokes a feeling all its own! One that must be experienced to understand the overall aesthetic of this DREAM stop...
See it to believe it!!!!
Zzzzzzzzzzzz...SWEET GYPSY DREAMS...
