Spring Fling in the City

I can't think of a better way to spend a Saturday (or any day, for that matter) than being surrounded by vintage items, art, tasty food, and lively music. So when I heard about the 2nd annual Spring Fling in the City hosted by Parsimonia, I became very giddy. Part vintage flea-market, part pop-up shops, over 50 local vendors came to share their wares. I rounded up my sister and gleefully headed down to an area of St. Louis I've inexplicably never visited: the gorgeously-restored Crown Square. The quaint, cute street is home to the famous Crown Candy Kitchen. (I didn't get any sweet treats since the line to get in was down the block, but it's on my to-do list.)

Here's my new-to-me loot:
Is that sweatshirt for Ruby not the cutest? I'm super-excited about my new clutch from Shimmy Shack Style, "pixie boots," and new journal!
I also snagged this awesomely romantic card for the hubby from local blogger Creature Type. You can buy it here. :)
Of course, I wanted to dress for the occasion, so I donned my $2 clearance special from Rung Boutique. Yes, $2. The clogs were $6 clearance specials from Tar-jay. The dress created quite a sensation at the event! What's the best vintage item you've ever found?
My new friends.
P.S.-Check out some of the other vendors that I visited (their stuff rocks!):

  1. Spring Fling is such a unique, fun event! I have a blast participating, but it is kind of a bummer to not be able to browse and shop the whole thing! I'm relegated to only spending my money at the booths within eyeshot. ;)

    Thanks so much for featuring my card! So happy you enjoy it! xo

    1. I can't wait to give my husband the card-I know he'll love it! Thanks for designing something so creative!

  2. Super cute dress! Love the neutral clogs with the bright business.

    1. Thanks, Jill! The clogs go with so much and are surprisingly comfortable, considering the height. :)
