Today I’m sharing the latest in my show-and-tell themed series of posts, “What You Found” which features people and their favorite vintage finds.

Last summer, Shannon’s husband ripped down their deck and built a much larger one. But with all of the new deck space, they were faced with the challenge of finding the right pieces of furniture to fill it. Shannon started by pulling a table from their fire pit area which created the perfect outdoor eating space and began filling in from there. They used the new space a lot but found themselves going in and out of the house quite a bit for cold drinks. Then one afternoon, she stumbled upon a vintage blue ice machine on their neighborhood garage sale website. It was perfect! The dimensions were just right, it gave the subtle splash of color she was looking for, and was only $30!

Of course, she snapped it up and it now serves as the perfect ice cold drink party vessel. Better yet, it can be moved about as needed. What a find!

Stay-at-home mom, Serena Thompson, dreamed of creating a fun and happy little event to sell her vintage and handmade goods. In 2002, she and some friends held the first event in her neighbor’s barn. The sale became wildly popular and began attracting visitors from across the country and recognition in national magazines. Today the event fills the Spokane County Fairgrounds and features hundreds of creatively and carefully curated spaces filled with vintage and handmade goods. Many describe it as a bucket list event, magical, inspirational, and the best vintage & handmade fair in the country. Serena describes it as the happiest on earth.
