Happy Friday, friends! With all the fun festivities we had going on this week, the days seem to have gone by way too fast! It's crazy to think that it's already been a whole week since Scott and I attended the spring Junk in the Trunk Vintage Market! We go every year, and this year the sweet folks at Jeep and Chrysler invited us to the VIP Friday night opening where we got a sneak peek at their Ride and Drive event, along with a full evening of shopping, yummy food and delicious Mama's Cold Brew Coffee! Oh, and we got to hear Clint and Kelly Harp from Fixer Upper speak too! Scott and I are huge fans of the show, so it was super rad to hear to their own unique story!
Scott and I are also in the market for a new car, which has been a bit of a slow process over the past few months -- so when we heard that we we're going to have the opportunity to take a few of the new 2017 Jeep and Chrysler models out for a spin, we jumped at the opportunity! We're looking to upgrade our current hatchback for an SUV and were so impressed with the 2017 Jeep Cherokee. Neither of us have ever owned a Jeep, but were really excited about all of the safety features, the roomy back seat and trunk (the perfect size for everything we need to haul for our markets + road trips!), and how much get-up and go this SUV had!
It was SO windy the first day of the market, but that didn't stop us from giving the 2017 Jeep Cherokee a good look over from the inside out!
Along with the Cherokee, they also had a few other models on display -- including the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee and the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica. Both were super nice, but Scott and I found ourselves leaning more and more toward this pretty blue Jeep! The folks at Chrysler and Jeep do events like this often, so if you ever find yourself near one -- you should definitely check it out! The folks there are super knowledgable and it's an easy way to test drive their latest models!
After the Harp's wrapped up their super inspiring talk (seriously, they're so awesome!), the doors opened up and the shopping began! Every year Scott and I seem to find so many great pieces at Junk in the Trunk, and also have such a fun time seeing so many of our friends who are selling at the market -- it's like a big reunion every spring and fall!
Right before last year's spring market we had just moved into our house, which left us with a hefty list of pieces we really wanted for our new space. This year, our list was much shorter and we had such a nice time perusing each booth for exactly what we had in mind (well, or something that just seemed to speak to us -- which happened too, haha)!
We spent the rest of the evening shopping with friends, chowing down on some delicious food (they have all the best food trucks there) and taking in every nook and cranny of each booth! We actually ended up coming back on Sunday to take another peek at all of the vehicles on display, and pick up a few pieces that I decided I couldn't live without!
We may have also gotten a few waffles from the Waffle Love food trunk! The GF strawberries and cream is my favorite, while Scott is big on their churro waffle!
We ended up taking home a vintage brass wood holder (yes, I know we don't have fireplace - but I couldn't help myself), along with a kilim pillow case and a few vintage brass candlestick holders! Scott and I honestly had the best time, and if you're local to the area or live in San Diego or LA (they have markets there too), you should definitely check out the next Junk in the Trunk Vintage Market! I promise that you'll have the best time! Anyways, I hope ya'll have an amazing weekend, and I'll be back real soon!
