Vintage hunting has become an extreme sport for me. A few weeks ago, on a Saturday morning, Pj and I woke up at 6:00am , packed up the baby and met my new vintage-loving girlfriend, Amanda so we could car pool down to North St. Louis. We found an ad online for a big warehouse sale where you could fill a bag for $10. They mentioned hats, belts and vintage clothes so there was no stopping us!

The place wasn't at all what we expected. It was a very dark, very dirty 6 story building, loaded with random stuff. We think that one floor of the building was a mattress factory because there were bolts of mattress fabrics and rusty box springs all over the place. Of the 4th, 5th and 6th floors, we did find some great vintage clothes.

What the heck is this? That's a box spring with necklaces tied to it, hanging from the ceiling! Nice chandelier, huh? (*lol*)
We crammed as much into our bags as could fit and after about 2 hours, we were ready to get out of there. We got back to St. Charles and sorted through our treasures. We both ended up with some good finds! Since I had a feeling I'd be having to dig through a lot of crap, I opted for jeans and a cute top and at 6am, there's NO way, you'll find me attempting victory rolls, so my hair was au naturale that day. Amanda is cute and vintage every day, though!

The adorable Emily from Livin' Vintage is coming to St. Louis this weekend so we can go back but this time we'll have boots, old jeans, dust masks, flashlights and possibly even safety goggles. What an adventure!
