Antiquing in SoCal Part 2.

Good Morning!

It's a great morning here at Casa BDG (Budget Design Girl)! The little guy and I are both sitting at the kitchen island "working".  I am blogging, and he is busy drawing his fire station. He loves to draw and create. (Just like his mama.)

Well, I thought I should bring you the rest of my little antiquing excursion from a few days ago. Today I will be showing you Bungalow Antiques. It is a FABULOUS store. In fact, before my son came along, I was an antique dealer, and rented a space in this store.

Bunglalow Antiques
28859 Agoura Rd.
Agoura Hills, CA 91301

 Entry was all dressed for Valentines Day. I Love the driftwood heart, and hearts with wings, ok and the everything!

 Pretty brown transferware in my friend Cheryl's booth. Love it.

 Sparkling vintage champagne glasses.
 Cool iron equine door knocker, I think? I am trying to figure out where in my house I can hang this. I think I must go back and buy him. I can't stop thinking about it! That's how I know I really love something!
 Vintage metal medical cabinet. So cool! Would be cute in a bathroom for towel storage.
 Vintage silver/silver plate.

 I love this booth! She has lots of ironstone, and pops of green everywhere. So pretty.
 Majolica plates.
 Ironstone and cows. Just noticed the large cow pitcher!!! Just like the one I snagged for $1.50 thrifting this week!! Now I have to go back, and see what price she has on hers. I love to know the extent of my bargains!
 My friend Cheryl's other booth. She is an AMAZING talent! What an eye for composition and design she has!
 Unfortunately, I only had my iPhone with me, so pic quality leaves a lot to be desired! I was not planning on featuring the stores, but then I started snapping pics of the things that caught my eye, and I thought why not? Next time I will take the good camera!
 I bought these GORGEOUS pillows from Cheryl's booth. I will show you, (later this week) how I plan to use them to transform and update one of the rooms in my house.
 Sometimes, inspiration for a whole room can come from a small accessory like a great pillow!

 Cool vignette. Love the hat and signs.

 More cool hats. Vintage military? French maybe? I'm not sure. Look at that Alligator or Croc bag!!!
I guess I need further education on both old hats, and large reptiles! Ha!
 Pretty vignette. Love the painting against the wood background!
 Ironstone plates and paper covered letters.
 These chairs were so cool! They are covered in perfectly distressed vintage suede, and the nailhead trim has the most awesome antiqued brass patina. I actually brought one of these home to try in my bedroom, thinking I would buy both, but I just couldn't make them work. :-(   Boo.
 Lovely. Like the horn, and silver.

 Mason jars and silver.
 Pretty linen hearts.
 I love this dealer's booth as well!! So many great things to see.

 Vintage door sign.

 Cute pillow.
Awesome model Gee Bee Airplane suspended from the ceiling. Believe-you-me, my son LOVED this!

Well, that about covers it! And now, after looking at the photos, I think I have to go back there today and check on a few things...

Have a great weekend!
We have Valentine Airplanes to finish. Oh joy! ;-)


  1. Thanks for giving us a tour! I love the brown transferware in your friend's booth. What inspiration.


  2. Thanks for stopping by, Karianne!

  3. Wow! This shop looks amazing! I would love, love to go there...just my style. Thanks for stopping by my blog...I got my rug that you inquired about at Tuesday Morning about a year ago. Not sure if they'll still carry it, but it's a great source for rugs!

    Have a great day!



I love reading all of your thoughtful comments!
