Expedition LA ~ Giveaway

Nancy and I had a great day yesterday as we drove into LA on a buying expedition for her shop. It's the first time I'd visited a few Nancy's amazing contacts and it did not disappoint! Our first stop (which I didn't photograph) was a in Santa Monica, where Nancy did some serious shopping. Let me just say, it filled the back of my Explorer to overflowing! If you like trims, vintage embellishments, and French treasures you'll want to be sure and stop into Gilding the Lily soon and see what she found!
Our next stop wasn't far and here we found Lilia who let us dig through stacks of old boxes holding stunning vintage millinery flowers.

Our little helper... so cute, and very sweet!
I don't think she's ever seen two women so happy with what they saw!


All of these are making their way into GTL as well!
We spent seven hours in just these two hot spots alone, and it was great to discover hidden, vintage treasures in our own backyard.
Nancy was kind enough to share a few favorites with me (thanks girlfriend)! I LOVE vintage German Mercury Glass buttons and she knows it! So I'm paying it forward... I'll put together a few packages of these to share with you. Leave a comment on this post and I'll draw two lucky winners on Friday. Oh, and don't forget to leave your e-mail if you don't blog!
Good Luck everyone, and don't forget to share some of your favorite things with a friend or two.
