Vintage Market in Somers MN and Friday Fences

This past week end, Darrell and I went to Somers Montana.  There was a Vintage White sale taking place which we were curious to see, and my cousin from Alberta has a cabin closeby Somers as well.  So, we thought we could do two things at once!!  It was a beautiful week end, the Flathead Valley is very much like some parts of BC.

This is also my Friday Fences post.  Please stop over and see what other interesting fences you will find.  This was the entrance to the Vintage Sale,,,I did some editing in Picmonkey and this is what I decided to save.  I love chippy old fences ...



There was lots of painted furniture, vintage white, red, aqua blue, were some of the popular colors. Have you noticed how anything built with wood pallets is the big thing out in Blogland right now!  
I liked this simple sign...


There were lots of people out and about looking for the perfect find!


Vintage looking display for these yummy baked goods!


Now, what I really wanted to take home was that yellow house up at the top of the picture!  Apparently it is for sale, along with a carriage house and a garage...what fun would that be for a BnB!! It is sitting empty, and the last person to purchase it was going to do a bunch of work on it.  Unfortunately, the roof project didn't progress far, it is without shingles, and my heart hurts to think it will be in such disrepair if someone doesn't rescue it!!



So, our first vintage market was a success!  
Fun day out and about, and we did find 3 small treasures that I will share with you later.

Summer is winding down, we just had the most amazing lightning show here and now it is raining. A nice break from the hot days we have had here in Southern Alberta.

Have a great week end everyone and take care!

Looks like a wonderful time with lots of vintage goodies! Love your photos. Too bad about the yellow house - hopefully someone will give it some love. We had lightning and heavy rain last night here in WA State, too. We really needed the rain - it put out all the forest fires. Love your blog :) New follower xo Karen

I would love to visit something like that! So much fun. I love the 'sunshine' sign. How sad that the old house is empty. It's a shame they didn't think to replace the roof first! Your first photo is wonderful with the editing. Have a great weekend. Pam

Hi Dawna! Thanks for popping by my blog. Everytime you have in the past I tried to come visit you but it would take me to your Google page not your blog. Today, I saw you left a comment on your google page for someone else with a link to your blog. Yeah! Now I am following your blog on Bloglovin.

That looks like a great sale! I would love to go to one like it.

Wonderful pictures and darling post about the vintage market. I'm not sure I understand why its a "white sale?" I thought white sale was sheets and stuff? Anyway, it's lovely and I love vintage and have even written a fictional novel where my characters wear vintage, and live the lifestyle. girlinthejitterbugdress.com. I'm excited to learn more about these vintage markets?

Your first vintage market experience sounds like it truly was a success. It's sad, however, to know that it went differently with your roof. Did you call a contractor for help? Winter is coming, and it's hard to do the repair during that season. You might want to have it repaired soon. Kent Ahlquist @ PittsburghAreaRoofers.com
