{ Charming Vintage Building Conversion + Spring Inspiration }

Today was one of those days that I just curled on the couch & watched the snow fall while watching some classic movies like "Don't Tell Mom The Babysitter's Dead" haha! I ran a zillion errands yesterday, blogged & cleaned for the week { my typical routine } so today I took a day to relax & reflect..As I said a few posts back, I'm in a transition mood with decor so I've been gathering inspiration for spring & hopefully our new home sometime this year...While I was out with a friend over the weekend we decided to stop in at a little local market { Westborn } in downtown that was converted from an old post office into the CUTEST bakery, market, flower shop & cafe! I about fainted when I walked in from all the old world charm that was left with the conversion from the post office to the market! They left so much of the brick, old drop boxes, wood work & added such cute vintage pieces for the flower shop & cafe part! The floors, old galvanized pieces & well every inch of this place had me stopping & snapping photos!! I was sad I was only able to grab a few shots since it was super busy ..Here are the ones I managed to snap!!!


I wanted to buy one of each of these little rustic plants & the super cute dishes & rustic trays!! I mean how much charm is packed into this little corner?!  The more the chippy the better right?! With the brick wall, chippy wood & old flowers pots...Charm galore!!!!


Is there anything better than some huge succulents?! Maybe I should try my hand at these again..


This wall was my most favorite in the market area! I love how they built up this wall like an old fashioned potting stand & added hooks for some vintage galvanized watering cans , while using it as decor too..genius & super cute!


I think I may have to take the hubby back this weekend to grab some of these guys for our spring dining room!! I mean these just scream spring & add so much simple charm..Let's hope my "black thumb" gets greener hahaha!

I really hope you guys liked this post...I was in my glory & love exploring new little shops like this to gather inspiration! I guess you could call me an old soul..but I just love the history & charm they left in an old building! 

Wishing you all a lovely Tuesday!
