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, journals...at 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 each...got 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!
