Coburg!!! shop shop shop

What fun it was to go to Coburg and shop! First off, my BFF Gail (littlebeachdesigns) lives in Eugene, and I traveled down there Saturday after the store closed to see her. I was in HEAVEN just looking around her studio. I got there around 8 pm, and didn't get to sleep until midnight- just couldn't stop oohing and aahing over her awesome finds, supplies, decor, one point she said "what else do you want for your shop" and I replied "ALL OF IT!". She sent me to bed and locked her studio door (just kidding, Gail) so that I couldn't smuggle it all in my car!
So, then we got up at 5 am (she said 6 on her blog, but I couldn't sleep I was soooooooo excited) and headed to Coburg. Got a prime parking spot...and started hauling my cute wooden shopping cart around everywhere. Our first stop was at a space that had 1960's plastic pots for plants for 25 cents about 2 dozen of those!!! Then off to Sue and Joe's space- (see pics!). LOVED HER SPACE!!! I left there drooling over that birdbath that is in the photo, then later went back and bought it. Thought it would be for my shop, but now I am not so sure. Looks pretty darling in my backyard right now!
Went and saw Isabella- LOVED her booth, too!!! I just could not stop racing around, checking it all out! I will figure out how to post my favorite blogs and shops, cuz I saw lots of the booths of my favorite bloggers down in Coburg, and just LOVED the displays and items that they had for sale. I was truly inspired by Isabella and Sue and so many other wonderful spaces. I didn't get the photos of my purchases yet, but I am headed to the store with lots of it, and will take photos there! Truly loved Coburg, and will go next year for sure!

Now that you mention it, I do notice quite a few things missing from my studio....was wondering where all my coolest stuff went, now I know:).
At least it went to a good home. Wasn't Coburg the coolest? I had so much fun wheeling around the cutest shopping cart there (so many people asked "Where did you get that great cart?")
Mel promised me she would find one for me because, believe it or not, I DON'T HAVE ONE YET!!!!!!!!!!!!!
