The Countdown Is On

It’s that time of year, y’all… Vintage Scout’s French Flea Market. For the third year in a row, we’ll celebrate our anniversary with food, friends, and frivolity. Make plans to join us this Saturday, September 18th starting at 10am. We’ll have a tent pitched outside and the Scouts have been scouring the countryside for fun and unique finds to bring you. Stay tuned this week for sneak peeks of some of the things you’ll find this Saturday at Vintage Scout. For more information about our French Flea Market, email us at info@vintagescout.com

Style House Lives!

We are SO excited to have clothing back upstairs at Vintage Scout, even if it is only for a week. Scout fans will remember when we had Luxe Boutique upstairs. It was bittersweet when Mary had that darling baby, because we knew our days with her were numbered. Enter our good friend, Lisa Cermele, who contacted us about hosting her Fall Trunk Show for the most amazing clothing line, Etcetera.Needless to say, we jumped at the chance. The Scouts have always been fans of Etcetera, especially the fall collection! This could seriously be dangerous; having all this fashion upstairs for a week. Sorry to our husbands, but, look at that coat! It’s fabulous, gotta have it! Lisa’s personal attention to your shopping experience insures you are fitted properly and that no one will be wearing the same outfit as you to any event you may be shopping for.

With styles, sizes and colors to please everyone, Etcetera offers quality, stylish clothing at a reasonable price. There are pieces for casual ware, office attire and more formal events. Their coats are to-die-for.

Etcetera is available exclusively through appointments only during trunk shows. You’ll shop upstairs with privacy and personal attention. Here’s an idea- make a date with some girlfriends and bring a bottle of wine. I can’t think of a better way to shop!

For more information or to schedule your appointment, email Lisa at lcermele@gmail.com. Tell her the Scouts sent you. And we’ll see you soon!

Dinner at Camp Ridgeway

We always love getting together with one of the biggest Scout aficionados, our dear friend, Fifi. Her home, Camp Ridgeway, is, in a word, beautiful. AND she is the most amazing hostess. So when she invited us over for a small dinner soiree, we didn’t hesitate.

When you drive up the circular peagravel drive at Camp Ridgeway, you are greeted by this:Stunning, right, I know. Well, coincidentally, the Scouts have been asked to join forces with some other local talents on a wedding style board to submit to some blogs. I think we found the location for our photo shoot!The property is just to-die-for. Fifi had drinks set outside for everyone in a charming arrangement on a 20 foot long table we collaborated on with her.Inside, Fifi’s collections serve double duty, both decorative and functioning. Here’s her gorgeous collection of flatware and silverware. I love how she displays it on the countertop. The lamp in the background is made from a champagne magnum.We have named this “Fifi Salad”. So simple, yet so sophisticated and delicious. Would it be as good if it weren’t served so beautifully?Over in her charming breakfast nook, a gourmet selection of olives, breads, pates, and cheeses. She has the coolest antique bread slicer she found up in Michigan.We all dish up and enjoy the spread and a lovely glass of elderberry water.The sister Scouts.

Fifi is always quick to give us credit for designing her living room. It was one of the most fun jobs we’ve worked on simply because she has the best stuff to start with. Don’t you love the mix of the modern acrylic chairs and the traditional silver platters? It’s always gratifying to work with people who let you get a little creative.Such a fun evening was had by all. Thanks to our wonderful hostess and friend, Fifi. We always leave Camp Ridgeway inspired and grateful to know such a charming and amazing woman.
